Technologies and methods for the development of embedded system projects are highly constrained by predefined hardware and software platforms. In this sense, embedded system projects may have more goals (derived from constraints) to achieve than regular software projects. Without pragmatic support, engineers from different disciplines are likely to neglect some project goals in the real-world embedded system projects. As a consequence, the success of embedded system projects may be more difficult to achieve than regular software projects. In this paper, the authors report experiences gained during applying a goal driven project management methodology on several embedded system projects in a software company.
