  • Kroll, Josiane; Audy, Jorge L.N. (Association for Information Systems, 2013)
    Follow-the-sun (FTS) is a special case of Global Software Development (GSD) in which development is distributed around twenty-four hours of work per day in order to reduce the overall project completion time. However, FTS ...
  • Fox, Jorge; Clarke, Siobhán (IEEE Computer Society, 2010)
    The service-oriented computing paradigm is in widespread use for adaptive systems that face changing conditions in their operational environment as well as the integration of new services. In many domains, adaptations may ...
  • Cleary, Brendan; Exton, Chris (2006)
    The problem of concept assignment, that is, the problem of mapping human oriented concepts to elements in the code base of a system under study, and approaches which facilitate concept assignment can be considered as ...
  • Gacitua-Decar, Veronica; Pahl, Claus (IEEE Computer Society, 2009)
    Designing the adequate scope and granularity of services is critical for their effective reuse. Patterns at business process level are abstractions of common and reusable designs to operate businesses. Business Process ...
  • Botterweck, Goetz; Lee, Kwanwoo; Thiel, Steffen (2009)
    This paper deals with deriving software products from a software product line (SPL) in an efficient and automated way. We present an approach that (1) represents the SPL with a set of integrated models, (2) specifies ...
  • Noll, John; Seichter, Dominik; Beecham, Sarah (IEEE Computer Society, 2013)
    Content analysis is a useful approach for analyzing unstructured software project data, but it is labor-intensive and slow. Can automated text classification (using supervised machine learning) be used to reduce the ...
  • Ali Babar, Muhammad; Gorton, Ian (IEEE Computer Society, 2004)
    Software engineering community has proposed several methods to evaluate software architectures with respect to desired quality attributes such as maintainability, performance, and so on. There is, however, little effort ...
  • Yates, Rebecca Yolande (Psychology of Programme Interest Group (PPIG), 2012)
    Involving practitioners in software engineering research is crucial for relevant, applicable results, but finding willing participants can be difficult. This experience report describes some of the issues that can block ...
  • Mc Caffery, Fergal; Coleman, Gerry (2006)
    This paper outlines how the goals, practices and capability levels for the configuration management (CM) process area within a software process improvement (SPI) framework have been developed. This framework addresses an ...
  • Deshpande, Sadhana (University of Limerick, 2012)
    Over the last two decades of globalisation, the software industry has witnessed the emergence of Global Software Development (GSD). Various business motives have driven software companies to outsource software development ...
  • Gresse von Wangenheim, Christiane; Hauck, Jean Carlo R.; Zoucas, Alessandra; Salviano, Clenio F.; Mc Caffery, Fergal; Shull, Forrest (IEEE Computer Society, 2010)
    A seeming multitude of software process capability/maturity models (SPCMMs) have emerged, and many software engineers have had to worry about compliance with them at one time or another. Although using SPCMMs is a ...
  • O'Connor, Rory V. (IGI Global, 2014)
    In the case of very small software companies, implementing management procedures, and controls to appropriately administer their software development activity is a significant challenge. With this in mind, the ISO/IEC ...
  • Botterweck, Goetz; Simon, Carlo (2004)
    This paper presents an approach which enables a system analyst to derive process models from data models. To accomplish this, existing data models are augmented with additional informa-tion regarding the intended process ...
  • Lago, Patricia; Muccini, Henry; Ali Babar, Muhammad (IEEE Computer Society, 2008)
    Present-day software engineering combines technical and social skills, as well as collaboration among people with different backgrounds (e.g. due to global development and outsourcing). In this paper we address the problem ...
  • McKeogh, John; Exton, Chris (Association for Computing Machinery, 2004)
    Comprehending and maintaining software is one of the core software engineering activities from early implementation to long-term software evolution. This paper describes an Eclipse based tool, which provides ...
  • O'Connor, Rory V.; Basri, Shuib (IGI Global, 2012)
    This article identifies the effect of team dynamics in the context of software development teams and its impact on software process improvement (SPI) activities in very small companies, in order to understand the ...
  • Heras, Federico; Morgado, Antonio; Marques-Silva, Joao (Springer, 2012)
    Weighted Partial MaxSAT (WPMS) is a well-known optimization variant of Boolean Satisfiability (SAT) that finds a wide range of practical applications.WPMS divides the formula in two sets of clauses: The hard clauses ...
  • O'Brien, Michael P.; Buckley, Jim; Exton, Chris (IEEE Computer Society, 2005)
    It is the view of many computer scientists that the standard of empirical software engineering research leaves scope for improvement. However, there is also an increasing awareness in the software engineering community ...
  • Buckley, Jim; Exton, Chris; Quigley, Aaron; LeGear, Andrew (2007)
    This paper introduces, and provides a cognitive basis for, a prototype meta-modeling process called ESCAPE. This process involves users explicitly stating their own model of an entity of interest, CAPturing an alternative ...
  • Lane, Michael; Agerfalk, Par J. (IEEE Computer Society, 2009)
    Many authors have reported on various challenges and benefits encountered by teams engaged in global software development (GSD). Previous research has proposed a framework to structure these challenges and benefits within ...
