"We have only begun to understand the experimental nature of software engineering, the role of empirical studies and measurement within software engineering, and the mechanisms needed to apply them successfully. This volume presents the proceedings of a workshop whose purpose was to gather those members of the software engineering community who support an engineering approach based upon empirical studies to provide an interchange of ideas and paradigms for research. The papers in the volume are grouped into six parts corresponding to the workshop sessions: The experimental paradigm in software engineering; Objectives and context of measurement/experimentation; Procedures and mechanisms for measurement/experimentation; Measurement-based modeling; packaging for reuse/reuse of models; and technology transfer, teaching and training. Each part opens with a keynote paper and ends with a discussion summary. The workshop served as an important event in continuing to strengthen empirical software engineering as a major subdiscipline ofsoftware engineering. The deep interactions and important accomplishments from the meeting documented in these proceedings have helped identify key issues in moving software engineering as a whole towards a true engineering discipline."--PUBLISHER'S WEBSITE
Aligning organizations through measurement : the GQM+ strategies approach by Victor R Basili( )
5 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 300 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Aligning an organizations goals and strategies requires specifying their rationales and connections so that the links are explicit and allow for analytic reasoning about what is successful and where improvement is necessary. This book provides guidance on how to achieve this alignment, how to monitor the success of goals and strategies and use measurement to recognize potential failures, and how to close alignment gaps. It uses the GQM+Strategies approach, which provides concepts and actionable steps for creating the link between goals and strategies across an organization and allows for measurement-based decision-making. After outlining the general motivation for organizational alignment through measurement, the GQM+Strategies approach is described concisely, with a focus on the basic model that is created and the process for creating and using this model. The recommended steps of all six phases of the process are then described in detail with the help of a comprehensive application example. Finally, the industrial challenges addressed by the method and cases of its application in industry are presented, and the relations to other approaches, such as Balanced Scorecard, are described. The book concludes with supplementary material, such as checklists and guidelines, to support the application of the method. This book is aimed at organization leaders, managers, decision makers, and other professionals interested in aligning their organizations goals and strategies and establishing an efficient strategic measurement program. It is also interesting for academic researchers looking for mechanisms to integrate their research results into organizational environments

A knowledge-based approach to program understanding by Salwa K Abd-El-Hafiz( Book )
7 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The knowledge-based approach to the automation of program understanding presented here plays an important role in nearly all software related tasks: it is vital to the development, maintenance and re-use activities, and is indispensable in improving the quality of software development. The approach described generates rigorous program documentation mechanically by combining and building on the strengths of a practical program decomposition method, the axiomatic correctness notation, and the knowledge-based analysis approach. Audience: Computer science students at the advanced graduate level and researchers and practitioners interested in software development, maintenance and re-use. Suitable as a secondary text for graduate level courses in software engineering and logic programming, and as a reference for researchers and practitioners in industry

Foundations of empirical software engineering : the legacy of Victor R. Basili ( Book )
6 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book captures the main scientific contributions of Victor R. Basili, who has significantly shaped the field of empirical software engineering from its very start. He was the first to claim that software engineering needed to follow the model of other physical sciences and develop an experimental paradigm. By working on this postulate, he developed concepts that today are well known and widely used, including the Goal-Question-Metric method, the Quality-Improvement paradigm, and the Experience Factory. He is one of the few software pioneers who can aver that their research results are not just scientifically acclaimed but are also used as industry standards. On the occasion of his 65th birthday, celebrated with a symposium in his honour at the International Conference on Software Engineering in St. Louis, MO, USA in May 2005, Barry Boehm, Hans Dieter Rombach, and Marvin V. Zelkowitz, each a long-time collaborator of Victor R. Basili, selected the 20 most important research papers of their friend, and arranged these according to subject field. They then invited renowned researchers to write topical introductions.; The result is this commented collection of timeless cornerstones of software engineering, hitherto available only in scattered publications
Identifying relevant information for testing technique selection : an instantiated characterization schema by Sira Vegas( Book )
6 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The importance of properly selecting testing techniques is widely accepted in the software engineering community today. However, there are chiefly two reasons why the selections now made by software developers are difficult to evaluate as correct. First, there are several techniques with which the average developer is unfamiliar, often leaving testers with limited knowledge of all the techniques currently available. Second, the available information regarding the different testing techniques is primarily procedure (focused on how to use the technique), rather than pragmatic (focused on the effect and appropriateness of using the technique). The problem addressed in this book is aimed at improving software testing technique selection. Identifying Relevant Information for Testing Technique Selection: An Instantiated Characterization Schema will train its readers how to use the conceptual tool presented here in various ways. Developers will improve their testing technique selection process by systematically and objectively selecting the testing techniques for a software project. Developers will also build a repository containing their own experience with the application of various software testing techniques. Researchers will focus their research on the relevant aspects of testing technique when creating it, and when comparing different techniques. Identifying Relevant Information for Testing Technique Selection: An Instantiated Characterization Schema is designed to meet the needs of a professional audience in software engineering. This book is also suitable for graduate-level students in computer science and engineering
Support for comprehensive reuse by Victor R Basili( Book )
2 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Abstract: "Reuse of products, processes and other knowledge will be the key to enable the software industry to achieve the dramatic improvement in productivity and quality required to satisfy the anticipated growing demands. Although experience shows that certain kinds of reuse can be successful, general success has been elusive. A software life-cycle technology which allows comprehensive reuse of all kinds of software- related experience could provide the means to achieving the desired order- of-magnitude improvements. In this paper, we introduce a comprehensive framework of models, model-based characterization schemes, and support mechanisms for better understanding, evaluating, planning, and supporting all aspects of reuse."
Software development a paradigm for the future by Victor R Basili( Book )
2 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Abstract: "This paper offers a new paradigm for software development that treats software development as an experimental activity. It provides built-in mechanisms for learning how to develop software better and reusing previous experience in the forms of knowledge, processes and products. It uses models and measures to aid in the tasks of characterization, evaluation and motivation. If [i.e. it] proposes an organization scheme for separating the project-specific focus from the organization's learning and reuses focuses of software development. It discusses the implications of this approach for corporations, research and education and presents some research activities currently underway at the University of Maryland that support this approach."
