The collaboration process in a joint project with a Japanese company is introduced. Topics included are the role of software models at each phase of the joint project and the skill set model of the collaboration.
We have developed a software project scheduling tool suited to the Japanese work environment.
Through the joint project, models play a key role as an effective communication media between Academia and Industry. They are useful for:
- Problem-discovery and problem-setting;
- Abstraction of the real world to extract necessary information, organizing this data into a useful information structure;
- Construction of a mathematical model to assure the generalizability of the theory and the tool;
- Visualization of the organizational resource usage state and definitions of several metrics.
