  • Casey, Valentine; Mc Caffery, Fergal (2011)
    Traceability is central to medical device software development and is an essential requirement for regulatory approval. To achieve compliance an effective traceability process needs to be in place. This process must ensure ...
  • Mc Caffery, Fergal; Richardson, Ita (2007)
    Software is becoming an increasingly important aspect of medical devices and medical device regulation. Software enables highly complex systems to be built. However, complexity is the enemy of safety, therefore strict ...
  • Mc Caffery, Fergal; Dorling, Alec; Casey, Valentine (2010)
    This paper provides an update on the development of a software process assessment and improvement model (Medi SPICE) specifically for the medical device industry. The development of Medi SPICE was launched at the SPICE ...
  • Casey, Valentine; Mc Caffery, Fergal (2012)
    The demand for medical device software continues to grow and there is an associated increase in its importance and complexity. This paper discusses medical device software process assessment and improvement. It outlines ...
  • Salaj-Kośla, Urszula; Scanlon, Micheál D; Baumeister, Tobias; Zahma, Kawah; Ludwig, Roland; Ó Conghaile, Peter; MacAodha, Domhnall; Leech, Dónal; Magner, Edmond (Springer, 2013)
    Nanoporous and planar gold electrodes were utilised as supports for the redox enzymes Aspergillus niger glucose oxidase (GOx) and Corynascus thermophilus cellobiose dehydrogenase (CtCDH). Electrodes modified with hydrogels ...
  • Hilliard, Alan (School of Architecture, University of Limerick, 2012)
    My thesis investigations are based on ideas of threshold and mediation in architecture. Movement or mediation between distinct places implies thresholds; skin, walls, doors, bridges etc. This mediating geography describes ...
  • Cawley, Oisín; Richardson, Ita; Wang, Xiaofeng (2011)
    Developing software for the manufacture of medical devices is a sensitive operation from many perspectives, such as: safety and regulatory compliance. Medical Device companies are required to have a well defined development ...
  • Mc Caffery, Fergal; Casey, Valentine; Sivakumar, M.S.; Coleman, Gerry; Donnelly, Peter; Burton, John (Springer Verlag, 2012)
    Software traceability is central to medical device software develop-ment and essential for regulatory approval. In order to comply with the regulatory requirements of the medical device industry it is essential to have ...
  • Regan, Gilbert; Mc Caffery, Fergal; Mc Daid, Kevin; Flood, Derek (Elsevier, 2013)
    Developing safety critical software is a complex process. Due to the fact that medical device software failure can lead to catastrophic consequences, numerous standards have been developed which govern software development ...
  • Golding, Andrew M; O'Connor, Rory V. (EuroSPI, 2004)
    This paper presents the proposal that while the agile approach to developing software is proving to be a success, there is value in merging some of the best practices of more than one approach. In this paper, two specific ...
  • Reimann, Wiebke (University of Limerick, 2012)
    Carbon dioxide concentrations in the atmosphere have risen since the onset of the Industrial Revolution. It is a potent green house gas contributing to climate change. One of the biggest carbon dioxide emitters are large ...
  • Bergel, Alexandre; Ducasse, Stéphane; Putney, Colin; Wuyts, Roel (Springer, 2006)
    Smalltalk is not only an object-oriented programming language; it is also known for its extensive integrated development environment supporting interactive and dynamic programming. While the default tools are adequate ...
  • Breen, John; O'Leary, Caitriona (The Royal Irish Academy, 1997)
    Metal levels (iron, zinc, manganese, cobalt, chromium, copper and nickel) were determined in Cerastoderma edule, Mytilus edulis, Monodonta lineata, Patella vulgata, Nucella lapillus, Littorina obtusata and L. littorea at ...
  • Barrett, Christopher A.; Gunning, Robert D.; Hantschel, Thomas; Arstila, Kai; Ryan, Kevin M. (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2010)
    High yields of single-crystalline silicon nanowires and germanium/silicon oxide core-shell nanostructures were synthesized using a supercritical fluid-solid-solid growth mechanism. The formation of the one-dimensional ...
  • Conboy, Kieran; Fitzgerald, Brian (Association for Computing Machinery, 2010)
    It has long been acknowledged that software methods should be tailored if they are to achieve optimum effect.However comparatively little research has been carried out to date on this topic in general, and more notably, ...
  • Howard, Róisín; Healy, Robin; Conway, Richard; Harrison, Andrew J. (International Society of Biomechanics in Sport, 2014)
    The purpose of this study was to compare force calculated using accelerometer data from the SHIMMER device, with force platform data on countermovement and drop jumps. Twelve physically active adults performed 5 counter ...
  • Mattsson, Anders; Lundell, Bjorn (2009)
    Method transfer is a problematic task. This paper discusses issues to be addressed when transferring a method and tool to a wide community by forming an open source community contrasted with the experiences from transfer ...
  • Karlsson, Fredrik; Agerfalk, Par J. (2005)
    Method engineering approaches are often based on the assumption that method users are able to explicitly express their situational method requirements. However, similar to software requirements,situational method requirements ...
  • Yang, Hui; De Roeck, Anne; Willis, Alistair; Nuseibeh, Bashar (The Association for Computational Linguistics, 2010)
    Nocuous ambiguity occurs when a linguistic expression is interpreted differently by different readers in a given context. We present an approach to automatically identify nocuous ambiguity that is likely to lead to ...
  • 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 ...
