Global Software – Software Design and Development with User Participation in Culturally Diverse Settings

Project: Research

Project Details


The scope of this project is the development of a joint research effort together with the Indian Institute
of Technology Madras (IITM), particularly the IITM’s Rural Technology and Business Incubator (RTBI), which
will explore how Participatory Design (PD) methods and especially software engineering methods
promoting use‐orientation in development need to be appropriated in a culturally different setting.
Because the development and usage of software is now globalized, the methods and tools used to
design and develop software needs to incorporate this global nature of software.
