Abstract [en]

The world of systems engineering methods is changing as rigorous ‘off-the-shelf’ methods gain popularity. The need for configuration of such methods is increasing accordingly. In this paper, method configuration is treated as a kind of method engineering, focusing on adaptation of a base method. A meta-method based on the concepts of Configuration Packages and Configuration Templates is proposed. Configuration Packages are pre-made reusable configurations of a base method suitable for a specific characteristic of a development situation. Configuration Templates with different characteristics can be related to different Configuration Packages and used as a base for reaching a situational method efficiently. The paper presents experiences from two empirical studies in which the Method for Method Configuration was developed and validated. These studies indicate that this meta-method eases the burden of the method engineer in configuring a method for particular project characteristics. Specifically it helped in deciding what in the base method to omit and to make sure that omissions made were congruent with the overall situational method.
