  • 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 ...
  • Kuhs, Manuel (University of Limerick, 2015)
    In this thesis the influence of solvents on crystal nucleation is probed to progress understanding of crystal nucleation from solution. Induction times of two solutes in different solvents and at different thermodynamic driving ...
  • 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 ...
  • Daly, Georgy (School of Architecture, University of Limerick, 2015)
    Are we born knowing how to architect? And if so, does this inherent gift or sensibility get lost as we funnel through time? Does is gradually begin to trickle away as soon as we leave the womb? I am interested in the ...
  • Hudson, Sarah P; Langer, Robert; Fink, Gerald R; Kohane, Daniel S (Elsevier, 2010)
    Invasive fungal infections can be devastating, particularly in immunocompromised patients, and difficult to treat with systemic drugs. Furthermore, systemic administration of those medications can have severe side effects. ...
  • Nash, Cian (University of Limerick, 2015)
    The direct inkjet printing of conductive silver and/or carbon suspension inks on flexible substrates is a promising route for the direct manufacture of printed and functional electronics. In this thesis silver flake inks ...
  • 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 ...
  • Stol, Klaas-Jan; Fitzgerald, Brian (IEEE Computer Society, 2014)
    Inner source, the adoption and tailoring of Open Source development practices inside organizations, is a topic of increasing interest. While Inner Source offers a number of benefits, in our experience many practitioners ...
  • 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 ...
  • Greene Mooney, Emma Elizabeth (University of Limerick, 2014)
    Reducing industrial low-grade heat generation and waste can lead to improved energy efficiency, decreased environmental emissions, and reduced fuel costs. However, it is an area that is recognised as being underexploited. Many ...
  • 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 ...
