  • Slyngstad, Odd Peter Nord; Li, Jingyue; Conradi, Reidar; Ali Babar, Muhammad (Springer, 2008)
    Software risk management studies commonly focus on project level risks and strategies. Software architecture investigations are often concerned with the design, implementation and maintenance of the architecture. However, ...
  • Stol, Klaas-Jan; Avgeriou, Paris; Ali Babar, Muhammad (2010)
    Open Source Software (OSS) is increasingly used in product development. Besides some much-reported benefits of this approach, using OSS products also presents new challenges. One such challenge is identifying relevant, ...
  • Niazi, Mahmood; Ali Babar, Muhammad (Elsevier, 2009)
    Objective: In this paper, we present findings from an empirical study that was aimed at identifying the lative ‘‘perceived value” of CMMI level 2 specific practices based on the perceptions and experiences of practitioners ...
  • Lane, Michael; Fitzgerald, Brian; Agerfalk, Par J. (European Conference on Information Systems (ECIS), 2012)
    Agile software development (ASD) has emerged as a practice-led initiative which offers great promise in improving software productivity. However some confusion exists as to its relationship with Lean Software Development ...
  • Biffl, Stefan; Ali Babar, Muhammad; Winkler, Dietmar (2008)
    Software and systems architecture is a success-critical issue in software projects. Changing nonfunctional quality requirements, e.g., performance, modifiability, and maintainability, can have strong impact on software ...
  • Casey, Valentine; Richardson, Ita (IEEE Computer Society, 2008)
    Distributed software development has become the norm for the software industry today. As a result many organizations are leveraging the expertise of their existing staff by establishing virtual teams. Here we outline the ...
  • Ali Babar, Muhammad; Kitchenham, Barbara (IEEE Computer Society, 2007)
    Background: An important element in scenario-based architecture evaluation is the development of scenario profiles by stakeholders working in groups. In practice groups can vary in size from 2 to 20 people. Currently, there ...
  • Nonaka, Makoto; Zhu, Liming; Ali Babar, Muhammad; Staples, Mark (IEEE Computer Society, 2007)
  • Donnellan, Brian; Fitzgerald, Brian; Lake, Brian; Sturdy, John (IEEE Computer Society, 2005)
    The concept of knowledge bases originated in artificial intelligence as one side of expert systems-namely, the fundamental body of knowledge available to a domain. KBs are particularly appropriate in knowledge-intensive ...
  • Vassev, Emil; Hinchey, Mike (IEEE Computer Society, 2013)
    To become interaction-aware, an autonomic cyber-physical system needs to be aware of its physical environment and whereabouts and its current internal status. This ability is defined as artificial awareness and it helps ...
  • Ali Babar, Muhammad; Niazi, Mahmood (IEEE Computer Society, 2008)
    There is a vital need for gaining a solid understanding of different aspects of implementing SPI initiatives in organizations involved in software outsourcing and/or off-shoring, which are parts of Global Software Development ...
  • Stol, Klaas-Jan; Ali Babar, Muhammad; Avgeriou, Paris (2011)
    Open Source Software (OSS) is increasingly used in Component- Based Software Development (CBSD) of large software systems. An important issue in CBSD is selection of suitable components. Various OSS selection methods ...
  • Lopes Lobato, Luanna; O'Leary, Pádraig; de Almeida, Eduardo Santana; de Lemos Meira, Silvio Romero (Association for Computing Machinery, 2010)
    Software Product Lines (SPL) is a methodology focusing on systematic software reuse, multiple benefits have been reported as a result of this type of software development. However, establishing a SPL is not a simple task. ...
  • O'Leary, Pádraig; Rabiser, Rick; Richardson, Ita (Association for Computing Machinery, 2009)
    When compared to the vast amount of research on domain engineering and building product lines, relatively little work has been dedicated to the derivation of individual products from product lines. Existing approaches to ...
  • Holmstrom Olsson, Helena; Henfridsson, Ola (IRIS Association, 2006)
    Packaged software development (PSD) is largely a knowledgeintense activity. Thus, it depends on the organizational capability of developing and combining market and technical knowledge into timely and competitive software ...
  • O'Leary, Pádraig; Richardson, Ita; Thiel, Steffen (Department of Computer Science,Furtwangen University of Applied Sciences, 2010)
    The derivation of individual products from a software product line is still seen as a time-consuming and expensive activity in many organisations. Despite recognition that an effective derivation process could alleviate ...
  • Mc Caffery, Fergal; Burton, John; Richardson, Ita (IEEE Computer Society, 2009)
    Software Risk Management (RM) within Medical Device (MD) companies is a critical area. Failure of the software can have potentially catastrophic effects, leading to injury of patients or even death. Therefore regulators ...
  • Sivakumar, M.S.; Casey, Valentine; Mc Caffery, Fergal; Coleman, Gerry (Springer, 2011)
    The benefits of effective verification and validation activities in the medical device domain include increased usability and reliability, decreased failure rate and recalls and reduced risks to patients and users. Though ...
  • Mancini, Clara; Rogers, Yvonne; Thomas, Keerthi; Joinson, Adam N.; Price, Blaine A.; Bandara, Arosha K.; Jedrzejczyk, Lukasz; Nuseibeh, Bashar (Association for Computing Machinery, 2011)
    A growing body of research has been exploring the use of control mechanisms to address the privacy concerns raised by location-tracking technology. We report on a qualitative study of two family groups who used a custom-built ...
