M. M. Lehman
1996 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Data obtained during a 1968 study of the software process [leh69] led to an investigation of the evolution of OS/360 [leh85] and and, over a period of twenty years, to formulation of eight Laws of Software  ...  listing are reprinted in [leh85]  ...  Figure 1 . 1 The growth of OS/360 Figure 2 . 2 Figure 2 plots system size modules as a function of the RSN.  ...

Do physicists need software engineering?

F. James
1986 Computer Physics Communications  
We attempt to describe the situation in software development which led to the invention of various techniques now known collectively as Software Engineering.  ...  This in turn leads us to consider to what extent real computer users, and in particular computational physicists, could profit from the use of these techniques.  ...  IBM OS/360 cent criticism of the project indicates however that In 1964, Frederick Brooks became project the "chief programmer team" concept is no longer manager for the writing of OS/360, one of the considered  ...

The Past, Present, and Future for Software Architecture

P. Kruchten, H. Obbink, J. Stafford
2006 IEEE Software  
Acknowledgments We thank our colleagues in IFIP Working Group 2.10 on Software Architecture for their input, particularly those who participated in the discussions at our August 2005 meeting in Krapi,  ...  This is the subject of software architecture. Architecture is different from engineering. As an example of what I mean, take a look at OS/360. Parts of OS/360 are extremely well coded.  ...  What happens is that specifications of software are regarded as functional specifications. We only talk about what it is we want the program to do.  ...

The evolution of the laws of software evolution

Israel Herraiz, Daniel Rodriguez, Gregorio Robles, Jesus M. Gonzalez-Barahona
2013 ACM Computing Surveys  
We also address the current state of affairs about the validity of the laws, how they are perceived by the research community, and the developments and challenges that are likely to occur in the coming  ...  However, despite such a long history, many research questions still remain open, and controversial studies about the validity of the laws of software evolution are common.  ...  Lehman extracted his conclusions mainly from the IBM OS/360 operating system project [Lehman 1980 ].  ...
