  1. 1. Efficient Automatic Change Detection in Software Maintenance and Evolutionary Processes

    Author : Sebastian Hönel; Morgan Ericsson; Welf Löwe; Anna Wingkvist; Přemek Brada; Linnéuniversitetet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Software Maintenance; Software Evolution; Effort Estimation; Commit Classification; Computer Science; Datavetenskap; Software Technology; Programvaruteknik;

    Abstract : Software maintenance is such an integral part of its evolutionary process that it consumes much of the total resources available. Some estimate the costs of maintenance to be up to 100 times the amount of developing a software. READ MORE

  2. 2. Supporting Effort Estimation in Agile Software Development

    Author : Muhammad Usman; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Background: In Agile Software Development (ASD) planning is valued more than the resulting plans. Planning and estimation are carried out at multiple levels in ASD. Agile plans and estimates are frequently updated to reflect the current situation. It supports shorter release cycles and flexibility to incorporate changing market and customer needs. READ MORE

  3. 3. Exploring Software Cost Estimation Inaccuracy

    Author : Ana Magazinius; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : organizational politics; estimation inhibitors; project management; software cost and effort estimation; learning in organizations; informal use of estimates;

    Abstract : The inaccuracy of software cost estimates has for long been a source of frustration to software practitioners and cost estimation researchers. Despite huge efforts to improve this important practice, estimation accuracy is still low. This thesis uses empirical and theoretical evidence to investigate why this problem persists. READ MORE

  4. 4. Exploring Cost Estimation Inaccuracy - Why do practitioners still fail to predict the actuals?

    Author : Ana Magazinovic; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Software Development Cost Estimation;

    Abstract : The purpose of this research is to further explore why practitioners’ ability to predict actual results is still not satisfactory. This problem was investigated from two perspectives. First, the practitioners view on causes of inaccurate cost estimates was explored in a quantitative multiple case study. READ MORE

  5. 5. Knowledge Classification for Supporting Effort Estimation in Global Software Engineering Projects

    Author : Ricardo Britto; Blekinge Tekniska Högskola; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : Background: Global Software Engineering (GSE) has become a widely applied operational model for the development of software systems; it can increase profits and decrease time-to-market. However, there are many challenges associated with development of software in a globally distributed fashion. READ MORE
