  • Ali Babar, Muhammad; Ihme, Tuomas; Pikkarainen, Minna (Association for Computing Machinery, 2009)
    There has been an increased interest in exploring the ways of integrating agile software development and software product line approaches. Both approaches share several common goals, which provide the motivation for ...
  • Ali Babar, Muhammad; Tang, Antony; Gorton, Ian; Han, Jun (IEEE Computer Society, 2006)
    Software maintenance is widely known as a problematic area that may consume up to 80% of a software project’s resources. It has been claimed that providing an effective mechanism to access Design Rationale (DR) has great ...
  • Song, Hui; Huang, Gang; Xiong, Yingfei; Sun, Yanchun (IEEE Computer Society, 2012)
    Many programs access external data sources through generic APIs. The class hierarchy of such a generic API does not reflect the schema of any particular data source, and thus it is hard to clarify what data an API client ...
  • Rhen, Fernando M.F.; Fernandez, Damaris; Hinds, Gareth; Coey, John Michael David (The Electrochemical Society, 2006)
    The influence of an external magnetic field on the rest potential ΔE0 of ferromagnetic and nonferromagnetic electrodes is studied. The shift E0 is measured as a function of magnetic field magnitude and direction, pH, ...
  • O'Farrell, Ian P.; Sheehan, Jeremiah J.; Wilkinson, Martin G.; Harrington, Dermot; Kelly, Alan L. (EDP Sciences, 2002)
    Smear-ripened cheese varieties are characterised by the growth of a smear culture, containing predominantly Brevibacterium linens, on the cheese surface during ripening. In such cheese, considerable zonal differences in ...
  • Robinson, J.S; Tanner, D.A (Trans Tech Publications, 2006)
    To produce useful strengthening, precipitation hardenable aluminium alloys rely on rapid quenching from the solution heat treatment temperature to suppress the fort-nation of coarse equilibrium second phases. An unavoidable ...
  • Lane, Michael; Fitzgerald, Brian; Agerfalk, Par J. (2012)
    One of the most widely used Agile software development (ASD) methods is Scrum. The underlying inspiration for Scrum came from an examination of new product development (NPD). This work proposes that the combination of six ...
  • Robinson, J.S; Tanner, D.A; Truman, C.E; Paradowska, A.M; Wimpory, R.C (Elsevier, 2012)
    The most critical stage in the heat treatment of high strength aluminium alloys is the rapid cooling necessary to form a supersaturated solid solution. A disadvantage of quenching is that the thermal gradients can be ...
  • Robinson, J.S; Tanner, D.A; Van Petegem, S; Evans, A (Maney Publishing, 2012)
    The present investigation aims to quantify the size and distribution of residual stresses remaining in rectilinear aluminium forged alloy blocks after they had been partially and fully heat treated. Various quench conditions ...
  • Clarke, Paul; O'Connor, Rory V. (Elsevier, 2012)
    In this paper, we present the findings of a study into the relationship between software process improvement (SPI) and business success in software development small- to medium- sized companies (software SMEs). A number ...
  • Eriksson, Owen; Agerfalk, Par J. (2004)
    In traditional modelling approaches, such as entity-relationship modelling, the predominant information modelling problem is how to represent external reality in the system in a ‘true’ way. In these approaches semantic ...
  • Kazemi, Ali; Rostampour, Ali; Zamir, Amin; Jamshidi, Pooyan; Haghighi, Hassan; Shams, Fereideon (IEEE Computer Society, 2011)
    High cohesion as a desirable principle in software design has an incredible impact on software reuse, maintenance and support. In service-oriented architecture (SOA), the focus of services on single business functionality ...
  • Fitzgerald, Brian (Informing Science Institute, 2003)
    As an applied discipline, the gap between IS theory and practice is a potentially worrying one. This special series focuses on this gap, and the papers published consider the problems in some detail and how they might ...
  • Meere, Damien (University of Limerick, 2012)
    The main work reported in this thesis is the proposition, design and implementation of a novel InfoStation-based multi-agent system, which facilitates the delivery of contextualised and personalised mobile eLearning ...
  • Noonan, Paul (University of Limerick, 2013)
    An active dialogue between all the members of a university community is a vital part of the education process. A campus wide communications system, which allows lecturers and students to communicate through multiple ...
  • Exton, Chris; Storey, Margaret-Anne; Desmond, Michael; IRCSET (University of Limerick, Department of Computer Science & Information Systems, 2010)
    When exploring source code in modern integrated development environments (IDEs), programmers are prone to disorientation, a state of ‘mental lostness’ which disrupts concentration and task focus. Disorientation can result ...
  • Clohessy, Trevor; Acton, Thomas; Coughlan, Chris (Center for Innovations in Business and Management Practice, 2013)
    Cloud computing may offer a new architecture in fostering innovation. This paper describes salient issues in cloud computing capable of facilitating innovation in organisations. Focusing on the potential value to organisations ...
  • Shaikh, Maha; Cornford, Tony (2009)
    Among various forms of innovation in industry structures and business models an increasing number of companies have shown interest in aligning themselves to an open source software model as a means to capture intellectual ...
  • Sharkey, Ultan; Acton, Thomas (2012)
    Through this study we explore the literature discussing the innovations which have progressed management information systems (IS) from the beginnings of transaction processing through to expert systems in an attempt to ...
  • 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 ...
