Customer experience quality: an exploration in business and consumer contexts using repertory grid technique

Fred Lemke, Moira Clark, Hugh Wilson
2010 Journal of the Academy of Marketing Science  
Experience quality includes evaluations not just of the firm's products and services but also of peer-to-peer and complementary supplier encounters.  ...  Customer experience is conceptualized as the customer's subjective response to the holistic direct and indirect encounter with the firm, and customer experience quality as its perceived excellence or superiority  ...  We are inspired by the rich research into service quality, both as a lens for the understanding of customer behavior and as a practical tool for managers, to ask: does customer experience, too, have a  ...

Implementing prototype testing tools

Dick Hamlet
1995 Software, Practice & Experience  
Research prototypes of such tools are essential to investigate the ideas they embody.  ...  Often, hand calculation is so tedious and error-prone that an investigator cannot obtain any intuition about his or her ideas without an implementation to aid in experiments.  ...  Andy Babbitt and Shari Powell did most of the "proof of concept" implementation, and responded to many requests for changes as several research projects pulled in different directions on the software.  ...

Hammering Models: Designing Usable Modeling Tools [chapter]

Ko-Hsun Huang, Nuno Jardim Nunes, Leonel Nobrega, Larry Constantine, Monchu Chen
2011 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Existing modeling tools have shortcomings in terms of supported functionality and situated usability or do not meet the needs of users of varying levels of expertise.  ...  A set of core tasks and two significant modeling approaches were identified that directly influence interface and interaction design for modeling tools.  ...  Special thanks to those who participated in this research, shared their experiences, and offered excellent opinions on the design issues.  ...

Why don't software developers use static analysis tools to find bugs?

Brittany Johnson, Yoonki Song, Emerson Murphy-Hill, Robert Bowdidge
2013 2013 35th International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE)  
Despite the benefits of using static analysis tools to find bugs, research suggests that these tools are underused.  ...  We discuss several implications of these results, such as the need for an interactive mechanism to help developers fix defects.  ...  This material is based upon work supported by the National Science Foundation under Grant No. 1217700 and a Google Faculty Award.  ...

Are Free Android App Security Analysis Tools Effective in Detecting Known Vulnerabilities? [article]

Venkatesh-Prasad Ranganath, Joydeep Mitra
2019 arXiv   pre-print
The absence of such evaluations puts app developers at a disadvantage when choosing security analysis tools to secure their apps.  ...  Of the 24 observations from the evaluation, the main observation is existing vulnerability detection tools for Android apps are very limited in their ability to detect known vulnerabilities -- all of the  ...  this paper and were used in the evaluations described in this paper.  ...

Studying Ethnic Identification. Tools and Theories [chapter]

Marieke Slootman
2018 IMISCOE Research Series  
This means that the frame of 'integration' is too narrow to fully understand the experiences and articulations of minority climbers.  ...  I argue why, in an attempt to avoid the reification of dominant images, I adopt a constructivist perspective.  ...  Use of an identity label does not necessarily reflect an underlying set of cultural norms and practices.  ...

Are automated static analysis tools worth it? An investigation into relative warning density and external software quality [article]

Alexander Trautsch and Steffen Herbold and Jens Grabowski
2021 arXiv   pre-print
Automated Static Analysis Tools (ASATs) are part of software development best practices. ASATs are able to warn developers about potential problems in the code.  ...  We investigate whether files that induce a defect have more static analysis warnings than the rest of the project. Moreover, we investigate the impact of two different sets of ASAT rules.  ...  This is also direct evidence for a common best practice in the use of static analysis tools: Appropriate rules for ASATs should be chosen for the project.  ...
