dc.description.abstractA theory is a common conceptual framework for structuring and organizing phenomena and knowledge in a concise and precise way. Electronic engineering endeavor (EEE) is the phenomenon in which a team solves an electronic system according an opportunity. Practitioner support such phenomenon by interest theories of endeavor mainly describing it in textual form and with partial coverage. Such descriptions address EEE approach, general management approach, and EEE analogous field approach like software engineering. Despite the availability of such theories, people report problems related to the endeavors and EEE in the state of the art. In studies of this field, authors reveal that most of the projects evaluated are delayed or canceled. Such difficulties are related to changes or breaches in scope, cost overruns, delays and endeavor cancellation. Some authors analyze causes of challenges and they attribute them to an EEE immature understanding and a lack of a general knowledge representation mechanism of EEE. Such authors declare the need for improving the theory related to such phenomenon and having better tools to deal with it. In this PhD Thesis we propose an EEE Conceptualization, an Endeavor Theory, and its application to EEE to produce the theoretical model of electronic engineering development processes, identifying their premises, constructs, and propositions. We use a method consisting of a literature review, EEE conceptualization, conceptual verifications, expert judgment, and synthesis of theories. We validate this PhD Thesis with one case study carried out in research and development center. This PhD Thesis is a first common language approximation improving communication between professionals, covering the aforementioned approaches, including improvement and unification in a formal description with terminological coherence. Description has a quantitative intrinsic interpretation and a qualitative facilitating its adoption, compatible with the state of the art. This PhD Thesis is a thinking framework and a general knowledge representation mechanism of EEE, scalable to other domains particularly to software engineering and Essence standard, and a contribution to a better understanding and performance of endeavor and EEE.
dc.description.abstractUna teoría es un marco conceptual común para estructurar y organizar fenómenos y conocimiento de manera concisa y precisa. El esfuerzo de ingeniería electrónica (EIE) es el fenómeno en el que un equipo soluciona un sistema electrónico (SE) de acuerdo con una oportunidad. Este fenómeno se sustenta en teorías de interés para el esfuerzo, que se describen principalmente de forma textual y con cobertura parcial. Tales descripciones se abordan en el enfoque del EIE actual, el enfoque general de gestión y el enfoque de sectores análogos al EIE como la ingeniería de software. A pesar de la disponibilidad de estas teorías, en la literatura se evidencian problemas en los esfuerzos y EIE. En estudios relacionados con este sector se revela que la mayoría de los proyectos evaluados se retrasan o se can-celan. Tales dificultades se relacionan con cambios o incumplimientos del alcance, sobrecostos, retrasos y cancelaciones del esfuerzo. Algunos autores analizan las causas de las dificultades y las atribuyen a una comprensión inmadura del EIE y a la carencia de un mecanismo de representación general del conocimiento del EIE. Estos autores declaran la necesidad de mejorar la teorización relacionada con el fenómeno y de disponer de mejores herramientas para abordarlo. En esta Tesis Doctoral se propone una Conceptualización del EIE, una Teoría del Esfuerzo y su aplicación al EIE para producir el Modelo teórico del proceso de desarrollo de ingeniería electrónica, identificando sus premisas, constructos y proposiciones. El método que se utiliza se basa en una revisión de literatura, la Conceptualización del EIE, verificaciones conceptuales, verificaciones por juicio de expertos y síntesis de teorías. Esta Tesis Doctoral se valida con un caso de estudio del EIE en un centro de investigación y desarrollo. Como resultado de esta Tesis Doctoral se propone una primera aproximación a un lenguaje común para mejorar la comunicación entre profesionales, abarcando los enfoques antes mencionados e incluyendo mejoras unificadas en una descripción formal con coherencia terminológica. La descripción tiene una interpretación intrínseca cuantitativa y una cualitativa para facilitar su adopción, compatible con lo que se expresa en la literatura. La Tesis Doctoral es un marco de pensamiento y un mecanismo de representación general del conocimiento del EIE, extensible a otros dominios y en particular a la ingeniería de software y al estándar de la Esencia, contribuyendo a una mejor comprensión y desempeño del esfuerzo y del EIE.
