  • Gaudin, Benoit; Nixon, Paddy (Association for Computing Machinery, 2012)
    The Supervisory Control Theory (SCT) introduced by Ramadge and Wonham offers a framework for the control of Discrete Event Systems. In this paper, we formalize some concepts about corrective software maintenance within ...
  • Chen, Lianping; Ali Babar, Muhammad (2010)
    When engineering complex software systems, the key Architectural Design Decisions (ADD) and the reasoning underlying those decisions need to be fully understood by all stakeholders. Achieving such understanding usually ...
  • Meade, Anne (University of Limerick, 2014)
    Parallelising serial software systems presents many challenges. In particular, the task of decomposing large, data-intensive applications for execution on distributed architectures is described in the literature as ...
  • Agerfalk, Par J. (2006)
    New forms of collaboration between organizations based on open source principles are rapidly emerging. The collaboration is typically done in a spirit of co-opetition whereby companies, often SMEs, share cost and risk by ...
  • O'Brien, Liam; Smith, Dennis; Lewis, Grace (IEEE Computer Society, 2005)
    There are many good reasons why organizations should perform software architecture reconstructions. However, few organizations are willing to pay for the effort. Software architecture reconstruction must be viewed not as ...
  • Stol, Klaas-Jan (University of Limerick, 2011)
    THERE ARE VARIOUS scenarios for a software development organisation to adopt Open Source Software (OSS). One scenario is the adoption of OSS products in order to integrate them as components into a final software product. ...
  • 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 ...
  • Lee, Dong-Hyun; Lee, Keun; Park, Sooyong; Hinchey, Mike (IEEE Computer Society, 2009)
    An adaptive hardware/software codesign model enables consumer electronics companies to reduce production cost and maximize profits by progressively modifying codesign options over the life cycle.
  • Lee, Dong-Hyun; In, Hoh Peter; Lee, Keun; Park, Sooyong; Hinchey, Mike (IEEE Computer Society, 2013)
    Time-to-market is a crucial factor in increasing market share in the consumer electronics (CE) market. Furthermore, fierce competition in the market tends to sharply lower the prices of brand-new CE products as soon as ...
  • Vassev, Emil; Sterritt, Roy; Rouff, Christopher; Hinchey, Mike (IEEE Computer Society, 2012)
    Developing aerospace systems is a complex task driven by standards and safety requirements to ensure reliability of sophisticated hardware and software. NASA future missions include an approach to developing swarm-based ...
  • 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 ...
  • Groba, Christin; Clarke, Siobhán (IEEE Computer Society, 2012)
    Service compositions in dynamic ad hoc environments face frequent changes in the network and service topology. Late service binding is a way to adapt to runtime changes but requires additional communication over error-prone ...
  • Shokry, Hesham (University of Limerick, 2013)
    Early system requirements are often captured by declarative and property-based artefacts, such as scenarios and goals. While such artifacts are intuitive and useful, they are partial and typically lack an overarching ...
  • Yilmaz, Murat; O'Connor, Rory V.; Clarke, Paul (Springer-Verlag, 2012)
    The vision of building a successful software product requires teams of individuals equipped with a wide range of social and technical skills. Furthermore, by combining these skills with appropriate job roles, we should ...
  • Kroll, Josiane; Hashmi, Sajid Ibrahim; Richardson, Ita; Audy, Jorge L.N. (IEEE Computer Society, 2013)
    Follow-the-sun (FTS) software development is a strategy used to reduce the length of software projects that are developed across globally distributed locations. However, due to communication and collaboration challenges, ...
  • Hall, Tracy; Beecham, Sarah; Bowes, David; Gray, David; Counsell, Steven (IEEE Computer Society, 2011)
    Background: The accurate prediction of where faults are likely to occur in code can help direct test effort, reduce costs and improve the quality of software. Objective: We investigate how the context of models, the ...
  • Ali Babar, Muhammad; Zhang, He (IEEE Computer Society, 2009)
    Systematic Literature Reviews (SLRs) have been gaining significant attention from software engineering researchers since 2004. Several researchers have reported their experiences of and lessons learned from applying ...
  • Ali, Muhammad Sarmad; Ali Babar, Muhammad; Chen, Lianping; Stol, Klaas-Jan (Elsevier, 2010)
    Objective: This research aimed to systematically identify, analyze, and report the evidence published in the literature to support the claims made in favor or against AOP compared with non-AOP approaches. Method: We ...
  • Chen, Lianping; Ali Babar, Muhammad (Elsevier, 2011)
    Context: Variability management (VM) is one of the most important activities of software product-line engineering (SPLE), which intends to develop software-intensive systems using platforms and mass customization. VM ...
  • 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. ...
