New national and/or global operators with severe mutual competition apper as a direct conseguence of telecommunication market liberalization and deregulation. This has resulted in new reguirements on telecommunication networks and with increased reqirements on quality, cost and lead time for development of telecommunication systems. R&D institutions and/or units are nowadays faced with continuos but accelerated changes as prerequisites for their own survival or survival of their companies or corporation. Super fast development processes, significant improvement in competence and productivity, CMM based process improvement, new development models, extremely low software fault density supporting "zero down time" etc. are just examples of needed changes. Response on above mentioned problems and challenges are presented in the paper through cooperation between Ericsson Finland and Ericsson Nikola Tesla, Croatia, as case study.

This presentation has been given during the COST-247 2nd International Workshop on Applied Formal Methods in System Design (Zagreb, Croatia, June 18-19, 1997).
