A large US company, UIC successfully outsources embedded software development after applying people- and project-focused practices developed from a prior failed attempt. In this article the author describes 10 practices that have helped UIC create an offshore development strategy that produces embedded software at a lower cost while maintaining quality. These lessons show how both the people involved in offshore projects and the projects themselves must be treated differently from internally developed projects. Even with the high complexities and intellectual property concerns surrounding embedded software development, UIC has used these practices to establish processes that ensure successful delivery and protection of UIC's intellectual property.
