SummaryThis master thesis is a study of a specific process. When working with development of the security system for Øyafestivalen in Oslo, I wanted to improve the process and achieve a more structured process.To do this I tried to use the Object Oriented Analysis and Design approach and then studied the process to evaluate how effective and fitting this methodology was with this kind of project.Specifically areas addressed are: Quality Management Risk Management Model based toolso Rich Pictureso UMLo State chartso Event diagramo Risk analysis OOAD activities
MethodI participated in the development process myself and then did my own evaluations of according to my areas of interest. In addition to this I did 5 qualitative interviews, using an open not standardized approach.
ResultsThe methodology seemed to be fitting in many areas addressed. Most problems concerned the event business sector and their usual lack of structured projects. Especially the mix of object oriented thinking and risk analysis seems to be effective and reasonable, as well as improving quality. The use of different model based tools where successful, but not all of the tools where fitting or cost effective enough to be used in this business sector.
