  • Laporte, Claude Y.; O'Connor, Rory V. (IEEE Computer Society, 2014)
    Very small entities, organizations with up to 25 people, are very important to the worldwide economy. However it has ben established that such companies often do not utilize existing best practice standards and frameworks. ...
  • Harris, Colin; Dusparic, Ivana; Galván-López, Edgar; Marinescu, Andrei; Cahill, Vinny; Clarke, Siobhán (IEEE Computer Society, 2014)
    Many countries envisage a future where renewable electricity will be the predominant energy source. For example, Ireland’s smart grid roadmap has targets of 40% of electricity from renewables by 2020 and 80% by 2050. To ...
  • Lepmets, Marion; Cater-Steel, Aileen; Mesquida, Antoni Lluís; O'Connor, Rory V.; McBride, Tom (IEEE Computer Society, 2014)
    In an industrial context all process models require a certain amount of tailoring to fit to the business environment of any specific organization in which the model is to be deployed. Process models should therefore be ...
  • Drury, Meghann L; O'Dwyer, Orla (World Scientific Publishing, 2013)
    This paper firstly explores the decision-making process in agile teams using scrum practices and secondly identifies factors that influence the decision-making process during the Sprint Planning and Daily Scrum Meetings. ...
  • Bresciani, Riccardo; Butterfield, Andrew (Springer, 2013)
    We have introduced probability in the UTP framework by using functions from the state space to real numbers, which we term distributions, that are embedded in the predicates describing the di er- ent program constructs. ...
  • Portillo-Domínguez, Andrés Omar; Wang, Miao; Murphy, John; Magoni, Damien (IEEE Computer Society, 2014)
    Cloud computing is causing a paradigm shift in the provision and use of software. This has changed the way of obtaining, managing and delivering computing services and solutions. Similarly, it has brought new challenges ...
  • Buda, Teodora Sandra; Cerqueus, Thomas; Murphy, John; Kristiansen, Morten (Springer, 2013)
    Database sampling has become a popular approach to handle large amounts of data in a wide range of application areas such as data mining or approximate query evaluation. Using database samples is a potential solution ...
  • Ghaith, Shadi; Wang, Miao; Perry, Philip; Murphy, Liam (Association for Computing Machinery, 2014)
    Using modelling to predict the performance characteristics of software applications typically uses Queueing Network Models representing the various system hardware resources. Leaving out the software resources, such as ...
  • Thorpe, Christina; Murphy, Liam (IEEE Computer Society, 2014)
    This survey provides a comprehensive review of existing physical carrier sensing enhancements for IEEE 802.11 wireless networks. The original physical carrier sensing mechanism, used by wireless stations to gain access ...
  • Bragard, Quentin; Ventresque, Anthony; Murphy, Liam (Association for Computing Machinery, 2014)
    Synchronisation mechanisms are essential in distributed sim- ulation. Some systems rely on central units to control the simulation but central units are known to be bottlenecks [10]. If we want to avoid using a central ...
  • 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 ...
  • Finnegan, Anita; Mc Caffery, Fergal; Coleman, Gerry (Springer, 2013)
    The recent introduction of networked medical devices has posed many benefits for both the healthcare industry and improved patient care. However, because of the complexity of these devices, in particular the advanced ...
  • 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 ...
  • Atachiants, Roman; Gregg, David; Jarvis, Kim; Doherty, Gavin (Association for Computing Machinery, 2014)
    In recent years there has been a shift in microprocessor manufacture from building single-core processors towards providing multiple cores on the same chip. This shift has meant that a much wider population of developers ...
  • Marinescu, Andrei; Harris, Colin; Dusparic, Ivana; Cahill, Vinny; Clarke, Siobhán (IEEE Computer Society, 2014)
    Microgrid management and scheduling can considerably benefit from day-ahead demand forecasting. Until now, most of the research in the field of electrical demand forecasting has been done on large-scale systems, such ...
  • O'Connor, Rory V.; Laporte, Claude Y. (IGI Global, 2014)
    For very small software development companies, the quality of their software products is a key to competitive advantage. However, the usage of Software Engineering standards is extremely low amongst such very small software ...
  • MacMahon, Silvana Togneri; Mc Caffery, Fergal; Keenan, Frank (Springer, 2013)
    IEC 80001-1 is a risk management standard that addresses the risks associated with the incorporation of a medical device into an IT network. Our research in the area of IEC 80001-1 has to date been focused on the development ...
  • Finngegan, Anita; Mc Caffery, Fergal; Coleman, Gerry (Springer, 2013)
    This paper presents work for the development of a framework to assure the security of networked medical devices being incorporated. The paper focuses on one component of the framework, which addresses system development ...
  • Finnegan, Anita; Mc Caffery, Fergal; Coleman, Gerry (Springer, 2013)
    This paper introduces an assurance framework for networked medical device development. This work is being conducted to address the everincreasing concerns of medical device security with a specific focus on medical devices ...
  • Casey, Valentine; Mc Caffery, Fergal (Springer, 2013)
    There is increasing demand for effective software process assessment and improvement in the medical device industry. This is due to the expanding and complex role that software now plays in the operation and functionality ...
