    In the foreseeable future, software testing will remain one of the best tools we have at our disposal to ensure software dependability. Empirical studies are crucial to software testing research in order to compare and improve software testing techniques and practices. In fact, there is no other way to assess the cost-effectiveness of testing techniques, since all of them are, to various extents, ... View full abstract»

    While much of the software that people depend on is written by professional software engineers, increasingly, important applications are being created by non-professional (end-user) programmers. Using tools such as spreadsheet environments and web authoring tools, these programmers are creating software that is being used to support significant activities and inform decisions. Such software needs ... View full abstract»

    This paper focuses on in-process measurements during requirements definition where measurements of processes and products are relatively difficult. However, development processes in Japan based on the enterprise architecture method provide standardized formats for such upstream processes and products, allowing in-process measurements. Based on previous work and on this examination of in-process me... View full abstract»

    The objective of this qualitative study was to understand the complex practice of software testing, and based on this understanding, to develop hypotheses on testing organizations and knowledge management. The population of the study consisted of organizational units (OUs) that develop and test technical software for automation or telecommunication domains. First, a survey of testing practices was...

    A systematic approach to decision making in software engineering is required, for instance, if an organization aims at achieving CMMI level three. Rational decision making regarding the selection and introduction of SE technologies requires adequate information about their suitability for the intended organizational context. Research is often unable to provide such information, and this could be o... View full abstract»

    Although models have been proven to be helpful in a number of software engineering activities there is still significant resistance to model-driven development. This paper investigates one specific aspect of this larger problem. It addresses the impact of using statecharts for testing class clusters that exhibit a state-dependent behavior. More precisely, it reports on a controlled experiment that... View full abstract»

    Code inspection and unit testing are two popular fault- detecting techniques at unit level. Organizations where inspections are done generally supplement it with unit testing, as both are complementary. A natural question is the order in which the two techniques should be exercised as this may impact the overall effectiveness and efficiency of the verification process. In this paper, we present a ... View full abstract»

  • Defect Detection Efficiency: Test Case Based vs. Exploratory Testing

    This paper presents a controlled experiment comparing the defect detection efficiency of exploratory testing (ET) and test case based testing (TCT). While traditional testing literature emphasizes test cases, ET stresses the individual tester's skills during test execution and does not rely upon predesigned test cases. In the experiment, 79 advanced software engineering students performed manual f... View full abstract»

  • Comparing Model Generated with Expert Generated IV&V Activity Plans

    An IV&V activity plan describes what assurance activities to perform, where to do them, when, and to what extent. Meaningful justification for an IV&V budget and evidence that activities performed actually provide high assurance has been difficult to provide from plans created (generally ad hoc) by experts. JAXA now uses the "strategic IV&V planning and cost model" to addresses these i... View full abstract»
