  • Downey, Jack (Association Computing Machinery, 2011)
    This paper proposes an exploratory study to determine why some computer science or software engineering graduates abandon their careers in software to pursue radically different paths. While these people may be experiencing ...
  • Zhang, He; Kitchenham, Barbara; Pfahl, Dietmar (Springer-Verlag, 2010)
    Software Process Simulation Modeling (SPSM) research has increased in the past two decades, especially since the first ProSimWorkshop held in 1998. Our research aims to systematically assess how SPSM has evolved during the ...
  • Richardson, Ita (Association for Computing Machinery, 2014)
    There was a time when researching software processes meant just that – we were interested in making sure that the process for software development was effective. We did not really have to worry about the domains in which ...
  • Thiel, Steffen; O'Brien, Liam; Ali Babar, Muhammad; Botterweck, Goetz (SAE, 2008)
    Product line approaches are well-known in many manufacturing industries, such as consumer electronics, medical systems and automotive [1]. In recent years, approaches with a similar background have rapidly emerged ...
  • da Silva, Ivonei Freitas; da Mota Silveira Neto, Paulo Anselmo; O'Leary, Pádraig; de Almeida, Eduardo Santana; de Lemos Meira, Silvio Romero (Elsevier, 2014)
    Software Product Line (SPL) engineering has been applied in several domains, especially in large-scale software development. Given the benefits experienced and reported, SPL engineering has increasingly garnered ...
  • Huo, Ming; Verner, June; Zhu, Liming; Ali Babar, Muhammad (IEEE Computer Society, 2004)
    Agile methods may produce software faster but we also need to know how they meet our quality requirements. In this paper we compare the waterfall model with agile processes to show how agile methods achieve software ...
  • Richardson, Ita; Delaney, Yvonne (IEEE Computer Society, 2010)
    For over ten years, the first author of this paper (IR) has been teaching Software Quality in the traditional fashion where students are presented with materials through lecture and tutorial format. Her experience has been ...
  • Ó hAodha, Mícheál; Richardson, Ita (2006)
    The research presented in this paper focuses on software quality in small to medium sized enterprises (SMEs) in Ireland. We carried out qualitative research with software developers and managers, where we examined the ...
  • Burton, John (University of Limerick, 2008)
    The Medical Device industry is currently one of the fastest growing industries in the world and a guarantee of the integrity of medical device software has become increasingly important. Failure of the software can have ...
  • Burton, John; Mc Caffery, Fergal; Richardson, Ita (2008)
  • Vassev, Emil; Hinchey, Mike (Springer, 2011)
    We discuss our experiences in building tools for software verification of autonomic systems developed with the Autonomic System Specification Language (ASSL). ASSL is a software framework that aims to assist developers of ...
  • Haque, Rafiqul (University of Limerick, 2014)
    With the advent of Service Oriented Architecture (SOA), organizations tend to use service-based applications (SBAs) that are dynamic, distributed, and ubiquitous. In recent years, SBAs have become the state of the art ...
  • Solis, Carlos; Ali, Nour; Ali Babar, Muhammad (IEEE Computer Society, 2009)
    The absence of a disciplined approach for capturing and managing architectural knowledge causes the loss of substantial knowledge generated during the software architecture process. This paper describes the use of a Spatial ...
  • Solis, Carlos; Ali, Nour (IEEE Computer Society, 2010)
    Collaboration is a key factor in successful knowledge management. Recently, wikis have become a popular solution for distributed and collaborative knowledge management. However, most wikis do not appropriately support the ...
  • Yu, Yijun; Tun, Thein Than; Nuseibeh, Bashar (IEEE Computer Society, 2011)
    Software developers are often interested in particular changes in programs that are relevant to their current tasks: not all changes to evolving software are equally important. However, most existing differencing tools, ...
  • Tun, Thein Than; Laney, Robin; Yu, Yijun; Nuseibeh, Bashar (Elsevier, 2013)
    Development of several computing and communication technologies is enabling the widespread availability of pervasive systems. In smart home applications, household appliances|such as security alarms, heating systems, ...
  • Yang, Hui; De Roeck, Anne; Gervasi, Vincenzo; Willis, Alistair; Nuseibeh, Bashar (IEEE Computer Society, 2012)
    Stakeholders frequently use speculative language when they need to convey their requirements with some degree of uncertainty. Due to the intrinsic vagueness of speculative language, speculative requirements risk being ...
  • Sigfridsson, Anders; Avram, Gabriela; Sheehan, Anne; Sullivan, Daniel K. (2007)
    In this paper we examine sprint-driven software development as it occurs in a specific Open Source community, PyPy. Applying a situated learning perspective, we report the findings from a study focused on the activities ...
  • Chen, Feng; Power, Norah; Collins, J.J. (IEEE Computer Society, 2016)
    Stakeholders are the primary source of requirements both as a source of information and for making requirements decisions. However, with different stakeholders having various roles and perspectives, with distinct or ...
  • Verner, June; Beecham, Sarah; Cerpa, Narciso (Association for Computing Machinery, 2010)
    When a project perceived to be a failure by one set of stakeholders is perceived as a success by another set of stakeholders we have outcome disagreement. Our objective is to discover if team motivation is affected when ...
