This agile development process, enabled the customer to give significant feedback and to have transparent insight into the current development state. This process also enabled the team to react to changes through the entire development phase and to implement them under strict control. The team was able to consider the results of usability tests during development to one hundred percent and without additional project delay.
Due to applied Yocto technologies, the Method Park team successfully piloted the software for the development platform on the target hardware, within less than one week. Additionally, the Yocto system provides a reliable source for embedding important security updates and the customer will also be able to ensure integrity and functional safety of the device in future years.
“The Method Park team collaborates well with our global development teams, they are also highly responsive and are able to take ownership of tasks and deliver results.

Based on the Qt framework, the project team interactively modelled the screens in workshops with UI designers. There was no inconvenient transcription from Wireframes or other HTML-based templates that were generated before. Features such as multilingualism or smooth transitions between different screens had already been supported by the framework.
After project completion, the Method Park engineers transferred all tasks for software development and maintenance, to the software team intermediately built by the customer.
