A Classification of Programmes and its Managerial Impact

Ann Vereecke, Els Pandelaere, Dirk Deschoolmeester
2003 Social Science Research Network  
The cases show less centralisation, less formalisation and less management of the interdependencies between the projects in the programme than one would expect on the basis of the programme management  ...  The research shows that the formalised and rigorous approach as described in most programme management handbooks is not widely adopted.  ...  The "heartbeat programmes" enable the regular, incremental improvement of existing systems, infrastructure or business processes.  ...

A Framework for Reasoning on Component Composition [chapter]

Ludovic Henrio, Florian Kammüller, Muhammad Uzair Khan
2010 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This article presents the formalisation in Isabelle/HOL of a component model, focusing on the structure and on basic lemmas to handle component structure.  ...  Correctness of component composition is well understood formally but existing works do not allow for mechanised reasoning on composition and component reconfigurations, whereas a mechanical support would  ...  Feasibility and readability of the proofs at the correctness level depends decisively on this clearly structured support with lemmas.  ...
