    Product line engineering is usually a very beneficial, but sometimes also a very risky endeavor, as there is no guarantee for economic success. In this paper, we describe an assessment approach that is designed to address the problem of quantifying reuse risks by providing an efficient means for determining the benefits and risks associated with a specific product line development. In particular, ... View full abstract»

    In today's software engineering practices, building applications from components is the ongoing trend. What can be noticed however is that there really is not a clear consensus about the definition of components, and instead in the literature we find many definitions of what components are. This renders a comparison between component models difficult. However, it is possible to compare different c... View full abstract»

    Today there is a number of established software development lifecycle models (SDLM) supporting software development. Correct implementation of these models helps develop software products the right way, but this does not ensure that the right products are developed. Successful product development companies often use business decision models (BDM) to facilitate the selection of products and project... View full abstract»

    The design of IPv6 started more than 10 years ago. Despite many host and router implementations and the commitment of several providers to introduce IPv6, it is still lacking large-scale deployment. However, there is no question that IPv6 will be deployed, the question is when that will happen. But instead of attempting to predict that point of time, this paper discusses the background and obstacl... View full abstract»

    The CORBA component model (CCM) seemed to be a new powerful multi-language and multi-platform component development framework. First applications based on CCM have shown that there are some drawbacks in practical use. We present a new approach for the CCM component implementation which improves communication performance of components living in the same address space. At the same time we simplify t...

    The video compression algorithms based on the 3D wavelet transform obtain excellent compression rates at the expense of huge memory requirements, which drastically affect the execution time of such applications. The goal of this work is to mitigate the memory problem by exploiting the memory hierarchy of the processor through blocking. In particular, we present two blocking approaches: cube and re...

    Inspection is an important approach to reduce defects in software engineering artifacts. However, research and practice show that the performance of manual inspections fluctuates considerably. Based on experiences we gained in large-scale controlled inspection experiments we propose a concept for improved inspection management relying on (a) the transparent collection of detailed data on the actua...

    Software engineering is largely a human-based activity despite all computer support. Humans, however have their individual motives, fears and imponderabilities. Process models and their necessary support of a software engineering environment have a high pervasiveness and impact on the software development process and the people working with it. For this reason individuals feel more strongly about ... View full abstract»

    Line sketches are ubiquitous in both the fields of design and documentation, because they are both quick and simple to produce and because they have a very high 'power to weight ratio' in terms of the information that they convey against their complexity as data or visual objects. This paper describes two pieces of work which exploit the power and speed of line style presentation. The first uses l... View full abstract»

    In this paper we propose a method for predicting the consequences of adding new components to an existing product line in the real-time systems domain. We refer to such a prediction as an impact analysis. New components are added as new features are introduced in the product line. Adding components to a real-time system may affect the temporal correctness of the system. In our approach to product ... View full abstract»

    Organizations increasingly define their software development projects as "virtual project teams", where project members from within the organization cooperate with outside experts and therefore build a "community", which in many cases operates as a highly distributed team. Process modeling, -composition and -configuration are substantial ingredients for team activities. This paper analyses the nee... View full abstract»
