  • Lepmets, Marion; Clarke, Paul; McCaffery, Fergal; Dorling, Alec (Springer, 2014)
    Software that is incorporated into a medical device, or which is a standalone medical device in its own right, is of a safety critical nature and subject to regulation from various jurisdictions (principally the EU and the ...
  • Creissac Campos, José; Doherty, Gavin; Harrison, Michael D (Elsevier, 2014)
    Analysis of the usability of an interactive system requires both an understanding of how the system is to be used and a means of assessing the system against that understanding. Such analytic assessments are particularly ...
  • Doolan, Ronan; Muntean, Gabriel-Miro (IEEE Computer Society, 2014)
    Increasing amounts of time is wasted due to traffic congestion in both developed and developing countries. This has severe negative effects, including drivers stress due to increased time pressure, reduced usage efficiency ...
  • Doolan, Ronan; Muntean, Gabriel-Miro (IEEE Computer Society, 2014)
    Most cities have special lanes dedicated to buses, however these lanes are rarely used at full capacity. At the same time governments around the world are encouraging people to buy electric vehicles. This paper proposes ...
  • Portillo-Domínquez, Andrés Omar; Wang, Miao; Magoni, Damien; Perry, Philip; Murphy, John (IEEE Computer Society, 2014)
    Modern computer applications, especially at enterprise-level, are commonly deployed with a big number of clustered instances to achieve a higher system performance, in which case single machine based solutions are less ...
  • Portillo-Domínguez, Andrés Omar; Wang, Miao; Murphy, John; Magoni, Damien; Mitchell, Nick; Sweeney, Peter F; Altman, Erik (Association for Computing Machinery, 2014)
    Performance testing in distributed environments is challenging. Specifically, the identification of performance issues and their root causes are time-consuming and complex tasks which heavily rely on expertise. To simplify ...
  • Ghaith, Shadi; Wang, Miao; Perry, Philip; Murphy, John (Springer, 2014)
    The software and hardware systems required to deliver modern Web based services are becoming increasingly complex. Management and evolution of the systems requires periodic analysis of performance and capacity to maintain ...
  • Saber, Takfarinas; Ventresque, Anthony; Gandibleux, Xavier; Murphy, Liam (Springer, 2014)
    Data centres are facilities with large amount of machines (i.e., servers) and hosted processes (e.g., virtual machines). Managers of data centres (e.g., operators, capital allocators, CRM) constantly try to optimise ...
  • Mkaouer, Wiem; Kessentini, Marouane; Bechikh, Slim; Deb, Kalyanmoy; Ó Cinnéide, Mel (Association for Computing Machinery, 2014)
    There is a growing need for scalable search-based software engineering approaches that address software engineering problems where a large number of objectives are to be optimized. Software refactoring is one of these ...
  • Li, Xi; Ventresque, Anthony; Murphy, John; Thorburn, James (IEEE Computer Society, 2014)
    Data center optimization, mainly through virtual machine (VM) placement, has received considerable attention in the past years. A lot of heuristics have been proposed to give quick and reasonably good solutions to this ...
  • Han, Yi; Magoni, Damien; McDonagh, Patrick; Murphy, Liam (IEEE Computer Society, 2014)
    In this paper, we present an experimental evaluation of the recently standardized Opus codec used in a VoIP context. Opus operates in both narrow and wideband modes, similar to Adaptive Multi-Rate (AMR). Through the use ...
  • Han, Yi; Yuan, Zhenhui; Muntean, Gabriel-Miro (IEEE Compuer Society, 2014)
    The stereoscopic three-dimensional (3D) video technologies have achieved significant success in providing enhanced immersive experience to consumers. However network delivery of 3D video content at good quality levels is ...
  • Ali, Raian; Dalpiaz, Fabiano; Giorgini, Paolo (Springer, 2014)
    Deployment is a main development phase which configures a software to be ready for use in a certain environment. The ultimate goal of deployment is to enable users to achieve their requirements while using the deployed ...
  • Ahmad, Aakash; Jamshidi, Pooyan; Pahl, Claus (Wiley, 2014)
    Context: Architecture-centric software evolution (ACSE) enables changes in system’s structure and behaviour while maintaining a global view of the software to address evolution-centric trade-offs. The existing research and ...
  • 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 ...
