Education impact of evolutionary software development

Vaclav Rajlich
2013 2013 26th International Conference on Software Engineering Education and Training (CSEE&T)  
The position paper then discusses what the shift means for the software engineering education. As an example, it briefly presents how software engineering is taught at Wayne State University.  ...  The paradigm shift from waterfall to evolutionary software development (that includes agile development) has been widespread in industry, but academia is still struggling with it.  ...  However this waterfall development often does not work because of the volatility that is common in software projects.  ...

Analysis of requirements volatility during software development life cycle

N. Nurmuliani, D. Zowghi, S. Powell
2004 2004 Australian Software Engineering Conference. Proceedings.  
This paper mainly focuses on change analysis to identify and characterize the causes of requirements volatility.  ...  During the development process, we also examined the extent of requirements volatility and discovered that the rate of volatility was high at the time of requirements specification completion and while  ...  However, very little research has been published on the identification of requirements volatility problems and the strategies to manage its impact on software development projects.  ...

Developing Trust In Virtual Software Development Teams

Valentine Casey
2010 Journal of Theoretical and Applied Electronic Commerce Research  
Research has identified distance in its various forms as an important factor which negatively impacts on global software development and on virtual software team operation in particular.  ...  The serious implications of these factors are due to the need for dependence on asynchronous and online communication which is inherent to global software development and the operation of virtual software  ...  The level of attrition section focused on how these software organizations based in India held on to their existing staff in what is a very volatile labor market.  ...

Fit of Development Methodologies in Software Projects

Sriram Rajagopalan, Saji K. Mathew, Vijayan Sugumaran
2016 Americas Conference on Information Systems  
We analysed a sample of 163 software development projects using PLS-SEM and our results show that the use of traditional methodology strongly countered the negative effect of requirement volatility on  ...  However, choice of methodology and its implications on project outcomes still remain under-investigated.  ...  of business scope (volatility), complexity and criticality and development methodology as project factor Requirement volatility Changes in requirements is common in software development due to changes  ...

Benchmarking software development productivity

K.D. Maxwell, P. Forselius
2000 IEEE Software  
As a solution, a company could use benchmarking equations-such as the ones we derived from a productivity-variation analysis we performed on the Experience database-to compare their software-development  ...  Also, because industry-wide productivity rates vary widely, and there are many different ways to "cut" the data, determining which projects to benchmark against is not easy.  ...  Thanks also to Herve Balloux, Barbara Kitchenham, and the reviewers for their comments on an earlier version of this article.  ...

A Contigency Model for Requirements Development

Tuure Tuunanen, Matti Rossi, Timo Saarinen, Lars Mathiassen
2007 Journal of the AIS  
The model integrates the literature on requirements and software development; sets the scene for future research; and, finally proposes how practitioners can manage risks in requirements development projects  ...  Based on 116 quality journal articles, we analyze requirements development risks, requirements development techniques, and heuristics for how they are effectively related.  ...  identified several sources of volatility (e.g. market impacts, company impacts and hidden impacts) in their classic study.  ...

The effects of development team skill on software product quality

Justin M. Beaver, Guy A. Schiavone
2006 Software engineering notes  
While it is difficult to argue that complexity and process are factors in the quality of a developed software product, there is a general failure to address what every software project manager knows all  ...  The low correlation coefficients indicate that requirements skill has very little impact on the volatility of the software specification.  ...

Contextualizing agile software development

Philippe Kruchten
2011 Journal of Software: Evolution and Process  
This paper presents a contextual model for software-intensive systems development to guide the adoption and adaptation of agile software development practices.  ...  This is the case for large systems, distributed development environment, safety-critical systems, system requiring a novel architecture, or systems with an unorthodox business model or governance model  ...  In small organizations, with few software development projects, this distinction does not apply, and all factors are on the same level.  ...
