  • Montanari, Ugo; Vassev, Emil (Association for Computing Machinery, 2012)
    Constraints are widely used in information technologies and research elds such as programming languages, arti cial in- telligence, databases, information security, web technologies, etc. In this paper, we present our ...
  • Downey, Jack (2009)
    This paper reports on two studies into the skills required to develop software. In the first, senior software practitioners in four companies, across seven roles were interviewed. However, the architect role proved difficult ...
  • Ali Babar, Muhammad; Gorton, Ian (IEEE Computer Society, 2009)
    Architecture reviews are an effective way of ensuring design quality and addressing architectural concerns. However, the software engineering community rarely adopts the methods and techniques available to support disciplined ...
  • Fitzgerald, Brian (IEEE Computer Society, 2012)
    Although only about 50 years old, the software domain has already endured one well documented crisis, which was identified early in its evolution in the 1960s. Simply summarised, the initial software crisis – Software ...
  • Savolainen, Paula; Ahonen, Jarmo J.; Richardson, Ita (Elsevier, 2012)
    In this paper, we consider software development project success and failure from the supplier's perspective. First we clarified concepts in order to be able to exclude review articles on in-house projects, continuous ...
  • Dhungana, Deepak; Groher, Iris; Schludermann, Elisabeth; Biffl, Stefan (Association for Computing Machinery, 2010)
    The use of the term ecosystem in the context of extensible software platforms and third-party developers or user communities has made us ponder about the similarities between software ecosystems and natural ecosystems. ...
  • Ahonen, Jarmo J.; Savolainen, Paula (Elsevier, 2010)
    Context: Software project cancellations are often caused by mistakes made during the project, and such cancellations make a strong economic impact. We analyzed five cancelled software engineering projects. One case was an ...
  • Gaudin, Benoit; Bagnato, Alessandra (IEEE Computer Society, 2011)
    This work considers the case of system maintenance where systems are already deployed and for which some faults or security issues were not detected during the testing phase. We propose an approach based on control theory ...
  • Downey, Jack (Association Computing Machinery, 2011)
    This paper proposes an exploratory study to determine why some computer science or software engineering graduates abandon their careers in software to pursue radically different paths. While these people may be experiencing ...
  • Zhang, He; Kitchenham, Barbara; Pfahl, Dietmar (Springer-Verlag, 2010)
    Software Process Simulation Modeling (SPSM) research has increased in the past two decades, especially since the first ProSimWorkshop held in 1998. Our research aims to systematically assess how SPSM has evolved during the ...
  • Richardson, Ita (Association for Computing Machinery, 2014)
    There was a time when researching software processes meant just that – we were interested in making sure that the process for software development was effective. We did not really have to worry about the domains in which ...
  • Thiel, Steffen; O'Brien, Liam; Ali Babar, Muhammad; Botterweck, Goetz (SAE, 2008)
    Product line approaches are well-known in many manufacturing industries, such as consumer electronics, medical systems and automotive [1]. In recent years, approaches with a similar background have rapidly emerged ...
  • da Silva, Ivonei Freitas; da Mota Silveira Neto, Paulo Anselmo; O'Leary, Pádraig; de Almeida, Eduardo Santana; de Lemos Meira, Silvio Romero (Elsevier, 2014)
    Software Product Line (SPL) engineering has been applied in several domains, especially in large-scale software development. Given the benefits experienced and reported, SPL engineering has increasingly garnered ...
  • Huo, Ming; Verner, June; Zhu, Liming; Ali Babar, Muhammad (IEEE Computer Society, 2004)
    Agile methods may produce software faster but we also need to know how they meet our quality requirements. In this paper we compare the waterfall model with agile processes to show how agile methods achieve software ...
  • Richardson, Ita; Delaney, Yvonne (IEEE Computer Society, 2010)
    For over ten years, the first author of this paper (IR) has been teaching Software Quality in the traditional fashion where students are presented with materials through lecture and tutorial format. Her experience has been ...
  • Ó hAodha, Mícheál; Richardson, Ita (2006)
    The research presented in this paper focuses on software quality in small to medium sized enterprises (SMEs) in Ireland. We carried out qualitative research with software developers and managers, where we examined the ...
  • Burton, John (University of Limerick, 2008)
    The Medical Device industry is currently one of the fastest growing industries in the world and a guarantee of the integrity of medical device software has become increasingly important. Failure of the software can have ...
  • Burton, John; Mc Caffery, Fergal; Richardson, Ita (2008)
  • Vassev, Emil; Hinchey, Mike (Springer, 2011)
    We discuss our experiences in building tools for software verification of autonomic systems developed with the Autonomic System Specification Language (ASSL). ASSL is a software framework that aims to assist developers of ...
  • Haque, Rafiqul (University of Limerick, 2014)
    With the advent of Service Oriented Architecture (SOA), organizations tend to use service-based applications (SBAs) that are dynamic, distributed, and ubiquitous. In recent years, SBAs have become the state of the art ...
