  • Planted-model evaluation of algorithms for identifying differences between spreadsheets

    Publication Year: 2012 , Page(s): 7 - 14
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (446 KB) |  | HTML iconHTML  

    Users often need to test, debug or reuse spreadsheets. We present a new algorithm that can identify differences between two spreadsheets, providing a basis for future tools to help users compare two versions of a spreadsheet (thereby seeing what is new and needs testing) or two different spreadsheets (thereby seeing which is more appropriate for reuse in a situation). This algorithm, RowColAlign, ... View full abstract»

  • Design and evaluation of a literate spreadsheet

    Support for capturing and sharing the problem-solving knowledge associated with end-user-developed software is often lacking. The principles behind literate programming have been proposed as an approach to addressing this. To study the potential efficacy of these principles in the general end-user programming case, they were applied to spreadsheets, the most common end-user programming environment...

  • Extension and implementation of ClassSheet models

    In this paper we explore the use of models in the context of spreadsheet engineering. We review a successful spreadsheet modeling language, whose semantics we further extend. With this extension we bring spreadsheet models closer to the business models of spreadsheets themselves. An addon for a widely used spreadsheet system, providing bidirectional model-driven spreadsheet development, was also i... View full abstract»

  • Automating data entry for end users

    Data entry professionals perform lengthy, repetitive tasks by hand, usually without the support of software tools. Since existing generic tools for end user programming were unable to automate data entry tasks, we worked with two data entry professionals on the iterative design and development of a new tool, named CoScripter Tables. The tool was made available within our corporation as a prototype... View full abstract»

  • The shape of empty space: Human-centred cognitive foundations in computing for spatial design

    Publication Year: 2012 , Page(s): 33 - 40
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2452 KB) |  | HTML iconHTML  

    We propose a human-centred model for abstraction, modelling and computing in function-driven spatial design for architecture. The primitive entities of our design conception ontology and computing framework are driven by classic notions of `structure, function, and affordance' in design, and are directly based on the fundamental human perceptual and analytical modalities of visual and locomotive e...

  • Using the “Physics” of notations to analyze a visual representation of business decision modeling

    Visual representations are common in communicating about artifacts such as computer programs, software architectures, and business rules. Yet, generally speaking, these representations seem much harder to learn and to use than many of the representations in other domains. Moody [1] has pointed this out and proposed a set of principles for visual representations based on a wide review of relevant l... View full abstract»

  • A combination of stroke manipulation and recognition strategies to support user interface construction and interactive behavior definition through sketching

    To realize the full potential of pen-based interfaces, it is important to provide adequate support to sketching, comparable to paper and pencil. This kind of support is paramount for highly flexible activities, such as user interface sketching. This paper discusses an implementation of a few recognition strategies to support this kind of activity, presenting accuracy test results for each one. View full abstract»

  • On the impact of layout quality to understanding UML diagrams: Diagram type and expertise

    Publication Year: 2012 , Page(s): 49 - 56
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1365 KB) |  | HTML iconHTML  

    Practical experience suggests that the use and understanding of UML diagrams is greatly affected by the quality of their layout. In previous work, we have presented evidence supporting this intuition. This contrasts with earlier experiments that yielded weak or inconclusive evidence only. In the current paper, we expand on our earlier experiments by varying both diagram types and populations studi... View full abstract»
