  • Parnas, David Lorge (2003)
    This paper provides an introduction to the Software Quality Research Laboratory at the University of Limerick.
  • 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 ...
  • Ghaith, Shadi; Ó Cinnéide, Mel (Springer, 2012)
    Security metrics have been proposed to assess the security of software applications based on the principles of “reduce attack surface” and “grant least privilege.” While these metrics can help inform the developer in ...
  • Arshak, Khalil; Jafer, Essa; Ibala, Christian Serge (IEEE Computer Society, 2006)
    The study in this paper is focused on the improvement of a Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGA) based design using a hierarchical analysis tool offered by XILINX PlanAhead'TM. During this work, PlanAhead software is ...
  • Moad, Dalil; Djahel, Soufiene; Naït-Abdesselam, Farid (IEEE, 2012)
    In this paper we propose an approach to improve the quality of service (QoS) routing in the optimized link state routing protocol. The OLSR protocol operates generally in a best effort mode by finding the shortest path ...
  • 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 ...
  • O'Connell, Eoin (University of Limerick, 2013)
    The development of a novel in-situ continuous monitoring system capable of detecting increases in toxin levels or chemical impurities in a marine environment is described. A real-time early warning system that incorporates ...
  • Kelly, Tara; Buckley, Jim (IEEE Computer Society, 2009)
    Several researchers have proposed Bloom’s Taxonomy as a framework within which to study the cognitive levels employed by programmers during software comprehension. But a review of empirical studies in this area illustrates ...
  • 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 ...
