    Abstract : Wouldn’t it be great if there were a systematic method for derivation of non functional constraints available at design time that made it possible to verify design and make implementa tion a much clearer task? This kind of methods are needed since systems of increasing com plexity has to be developed, and the cost for failing has proven to bee too high. The problem is how to derive the design time constraints into implementation time constraints, maintaining the traceability for the individual constraints, and early on get indications whether a project is about to fail or not.

    Abstract : Lisa Nyberg's PhD project starts from the question: how can we study for a future unknown?

At the basis of this research is a teaching practice; the classroom of aesthetic education at the intersection of study, creative work and the institution. READ MORE
