Prerna Singal, A Charan Kumari, Prabha Sharma
2020 Procedia Computer Science  
The proposed differential evolution approach predicted the estimated effort more accurately than the original models for the two datasets under consideration.  ...  Several software effort estimation techniques based on mathematical formulations have been proposed, however there is little consensus on the best technique for effort estimation, which can predict the  ...  Background Algorithmic Models for Software Development Effort Estimation These models expresses the software development effort estimate as a function of the variables on which the development effort  ...

Towards engineered architecture evolution

Sagar Chaki, Andres Diaz-Pace, David Garlan, Arie Gurfinkel, Ipek Ozkaya
2009 2009 ICSE Workshop on Modeling in Software Engineering  
Architecture evolution, a key aspect of software evolution, is typically done in an ad hoc manner, guided only by the competence of the architect performing it.  ...  We believe that evolutions of a restricted form -close-ended evolution, where the starting and ending design points are known a prioriare amenable to being engineered.  ...  Bennett and Rajlich [8] have proposed a software model for evolution, in which, after the initial development of a system, it sequentially goes through the stages of evolution, servicing, phase-out,  ...

Evaluation of Quality of Design for Document-Centric Software Services [chapter]

George Feuerlicht
2013 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Recent research efforts include attempts to develop reliable metrics for assessing design quality of service-oriented applications.  ...  Service design has been the subject of intense research interest for almost a decade and there is a wide agreement about the key service design principles that promote maintainability of software services  ...  The rationale for the metric is that maintenance effort required to accommodate new requirements can be estimated based on the level of overlap (lack of orthogonality) of message schemas; i.e. schemas  ...
