  • Mc Caffery, Fergal; Dorling, Alec; Casey, Valentine (2010)
    This paper provides an update on the development of a software process assessment and improvement model (Medi SPICE) specifically for the medical device industry. The development of Medi SPICE was launched at the SPICE ...
  • Casey, Valentine; Mc Caffery, Fergal (2011)
    Traceability is central to medical device software development and is an essential requirement for regulatory approval. To achieve compliance an effective traceability process needs to be in place. This process must ensure ...
  • Flood, Derek; Mc Caffery, Fergal; Casey, Valentine; Regan, Gilbert (Springer, 2013)
    A critical component to the success of software systems is the incor-poration of the end user. Ensuring that the end user can use the system effec-tively and efficiently is an important consideration. Failure to do this ...
  • Golding, Andrew M; O'Connor, Rory V. (EuroSPI, 2004)
    This paper presents the proposal that while the agile approach to developing software is proving to be a success, there is value in merging some of the best practices of more than one approach. In this paper, two specific ...
  • Bergel, Alexandre; Ducasse, Stéphane; Putney, Colin; Wuyts, Roel (Springer, 2006)
    Smalltalk is not only an object-oriented programming language; it is also known for its extensive integrated development environment supporting interactive and dynamic programming. While the default tools are adequate ...
  • Conboy, Kieran; Fitzgerald, Brian (Association for Computing Machinery, 2010)
    It has long been acknowledged that software methods should be tailored if they are to achieve optimum effect.However comparatively little research has been carried out to date on this topic in general, and more notably, ...
  • Yang, Hui; De Roeck, Anne; Willis, Alistair; Nuseibeh, Bashar (The Association for Computational Linguistics, 2010)
    Nocuous ambiguity occurs when a linguistic expression is interpreted differently by different readers in a given context. We present an approach to automatically identify nocuous ambiguity that is likely to lead to ...
  • Flood, Derek; Mc Caffery, Fergal; Casey, Valentine; Regan, Gilbert (Springer, 2013)
    Software process improvement initiatives offer many benefits in terms of productivity, cost savings and quality. As part of these initiatives or-ganisations undergo an assessment and then embark on a software process ...
  • Agerfalk, Par J.; Fitzgerald, Brian (2005)
    Systems development methods are used to express and communicate knowledge about systems and software development processes; i.e. methods encapsulate knowledge. Since methods encapsulate knowledge, they also encapsulate ...
  • Mattsson, Anders; Lundell, Bjorn (2009)
    Method transfer is a problematic task. This paper discusses issues to be addressed when transferring a method and tool to a wide community by forming an open source community contrasted with the experiences from transfer ...
  • Karlsson, Fredrik; Agerfalk, Par J. (2005)
    Method engineering approaches are often based on the assumption that method users are able to explicitly express their situational method requirements. However, similar to software requirements,situational method requirements ...
  • Khoshkbarforoushha, Alireza; Jamshidi, Pooyan; Nikravesh, Ali; Fereidoon, Shams (Springer-Verlag, 2011)
    BPEL processes are workflow-oriented composite services for service-oriented solutions. Rapidly changing environment and turbulent market conditions require flexible BPEL processes to adapt with several modifications during ...
  • Wang, Xiaofeng; Kuzmickaja, Iiona; Stol, Klaas-Jan; Abrahamsson, Pekka; Fitzgerald, Brian (IEEE Computer Society, 2014)
    Microblogging is one of the popular forms of social media that has quickly permeated both enterprise and open source communities. However, how exactly open source communities can leverage microblogging is not yet ...
  • Fitzgerald, Brian; Neville, Karen (Informing Science Institute, 2002)
    The importance of information technology (IT) for modern business and, indeed, research in general cannot be questioned, as its sheer pervasiveness adequately attests. However, simplistic views of technological utopianism ...
  • Bachir, Mounira; Touati, Sid-Ahmed-Ali; Brault, Frederic; Gregg, David; Cohen, Albert (Springer, 2013)
    We address the problem of generating compact code from software pipelined loops. Although software pipelining is a powerful technique to extract fine-grain parallelism, it generates lifetime intervals spanning multiple ...
  • Omoronyia, Inah; Salehie, Mazeiar; Ali, Raian; Kaiya, Haruhiko; Nuseibeh, Bashar (2011)
  • Rosendahl, Andreas; Hampe, Felix J.; Botterweck, Goetz (IEEE Computer Society, 2007)
    In this paper we study mobile home automation, a field that emerges from an integration of mobile application platforms and home automation technologies. In a conceptual introduction we first illustrate the need for such ...
  • Botterweck, Goetz; Hampe, Felix J.; Westenberg, Sven (2007)
    This paper deals with concepts, challenges and design alternatives for the application of RFID technology within an industry context. We are especially interested in the combination of RFID technology with positioning ...
  • Bayley, Ian; Flood, Derek; Harrison, Rachel; Martin, Clare (IARIA International Academy, Research and Industry Association, 2012)
    Testing is an essential part of the software development lifecycle. However, it can cost a lot of time and money to perform. For mobile applications, this problem is further exacerbated by the need to develop apps in a ...
  • Mjeda, Anila; McElligott, Pat; Ryan, Kevin; Thiel, Steffen (SAE International, 2009)
    The ever increasing complexity of embedded automotive software is not matched by the current development and test processes of automotive embedded software and the latter have become the limiting factor. A model-based ...
