  1. 1. Early and Cost-Effective Software Fault Detection : Measurement and Implementation in an Industrial Setting

    Author : Lars-Ola Damm; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; software; faults; defects; early fault detection; software process improvement;

    Abstract : Avoidable rework consumes a large part of development projects, i.e. 20-80 percent depending on the maturity of the organization and the complexity of the products. High amounts of avoidable rework commonly occur when having many faults left to correct in late stages of a project. READ MORE

  2. 2. Improving Software Quality through Understanding and Early Estimations

    Author : Anders Wesslén; Institutionen för elektro- och informationsteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Personal Software Process; process improvement; software development process; defects; faults; failures; test planning; early estimations; usage profile; usage model; statistical usage testing; Software quality; software reliability; Systems engineering; computer technology; Data- och systemvetenskap;

    Abstract : Software quality is an important factor of a large and complex software system. Hence, there is a need for measuring and controlling quality. Software quality has, however, many different f actors and involves implicit expectations of the behaviour of the software. READ MORE

  3. 3. Software Quality Evaluation for Evolving Systems in Distributed Development Environments

    Author : Ronald Jabangwe; Blekinge Tekniska Högskola; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Global software development; Distributed software development; Software transfer; Object-oriented measures; Software quality; Software evolution;

    Abstract : Context: There is an overwhelming prevalence of companies developing software in global software development (GSD) contexts. The existing body of knowledge, however, falls short of providing comprehensive empirical evidence on the implication of GSD contexts on software quality for evolving software systems. READ MORE

  4. 4. Software Diversity for Third-Party Dependencies

    Author : Nicolas Harrand; Benoit Baudry; Martin Monperrus; David Broman; Ville Leppänen; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Automated Software Engineering; Software Diversity; Software libraries; Software Monoculture; Computer Science; Datalogi;

    Abstract : Thanks to the emergence of package managers and online software repositories, modern software development heavily relies on the reuse of third-party libraries. This practice has significant benefits in terms of productivity and reliability. READ MORE

  5. 5. Structuring Exploratory Testing through Test Charter Design and Decision Support

    Author : Ahmad Nauman Ghazi; Kai Petersen; Jürgen Börstler; Burak Turhan; Blekinge Tekniska Högskola; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Exploratory Testing; Software Testing; Test Charter Design; Decision Support; Survey Research; Software Engineering; Session based test management; SBTM; ET;

    Abstract : Context: Exploratory testing (ET) is an approach to test software with a strong focus on personal skills and freedom of the tester. ET emphasises the simultaneous design and execution of tests with minimal test documentation. READ MORE
