Extending the product family approach to support n-dimensional and hierarchical product lines

J. M. Thompson; M. P. E. Heimdahl Proceedings Fifth IEEE International Symposium on Requirements Engineering, 2001

The software product-line approach (for software product families) is one of the success stories of software reuse. When applied, it can result in cost savings and increases in productivity. In addition, in safety-critical systems the approach has the potential for reuse of analysis and testing results, which can lead to safer systems. Nevertheless, there are times when it seems like ...

Product-line requirements specification (PRS): an approach and case study

S. R. Faulk Proceedings Fifth IEEE International Symposium on Requirements Engineering, 2001

Software product-line engineering can provide significant gains in quality and productivity through systematic reuse of software's conceptual structures. For embedded safety- or mission-critical systems, much of the development effort goes into understanding, specifying, and validating the requirements. If developers can reuse rather than re-do requirements for families of similar systems, we can improve productivity while significantly reducing the opportunity for ...

    Bibliometrics has moved well beyond the mere tracking of bibliographic citations. The web enables new ways to measure scholarly productivity and impact, making available tools and data that can reveal patterns of intellectual activity and impact that were previously invisible: mentions, acknowledgments, endorsements, downloads, recommendations, blog posts, tweets. This book describes recent theoretical and practical advances in metrics-based research, examining a variety of alternative metrics -- or "altmetrics" -- while also considering the ethical and cultural consequences of relying on metrics to assess the quality of scholarship. Once the domain of information scientists and mathematicians, bibliometrics is now a fast-growing, multidisciplinary field that ranges from webometrics to scientometrics to influmetrics. The contributors to Beyond Bibliometrics discuss the changing environment of scholarly publishing, the effects of open access and Web 2.0 on genres of discourse, novel analytic methods, and the emergence of next- generation metrics in a performance-conscious age. **Contributors**Mayur Amin, Judit Bar-Ilan, Johann Bauer, Lutz Bornmann, Benjamin F.

  • People, Product, Process, Project - the Big Four

    When the city of Denver was refurbishing its airport, errors in the software that controlled the automatic baggage system persisted for nine months. The airport's planners watched their bond rating fall to junk status because the project hemorrhaged red ink at the rate of $1.1 million a day in interest and operating costs. The impact of similar stories repeated over time is that poor software causes major cost overruns, exposes companies to potential liability for defects, and jeopardizes economic opportunity. The wise project manager knows that four factors correlate to productivity in sophisticated systems: people, product, process, and project. In this chapter, we will examine each in order to be able to weigh its value for a given product, and thereby give you the basis to develop a rationale for the apportionment of available money.

  • Appendix A: Full Soil History Regression Equations for China, 1930s–1980s

    In this book Peter Lindert evaluates environmental concerns about soil degradation in two very large countries--China and Indonesia--where anecdotal evidence has suggested serious problems. Lindert does what no scholar before him has done: using new archival data sets, he measures changes in soil productivity over long enough periods of time to reveal the influence of human activity.China and Indonesia are good test cases because of their geography and history. China has been at the center of global concerns about desertification and water erosion, which it may have accelerated with intense agriculture. Most of Indonesia¹s lands were created by volcanoes and erosion, and its rapid deforestation and shifting slash-burn agriculture have been singled out for international censure.Lindert's investigation suggests that human mismanagement is not on average worsening the soil quality in China and Indonesia. Human cultivation lowers soil nitrogen and organic matter, but has offsetting positive effects. Economic development and rising incomes may even lead to better soil. Beyond the importance of Lindert's immediate findings, this book opens a new area of study--quantitative soil history--and raises the standard for debating soil trends.

  • Introduction

    The dedicated short-range communication (DSRC) protocol is one of short-range wireless protocols, which is specifically designed for vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) communications to enhance the safety and productivity of the transportation system, which is also referred to as an intelligent transportation system (ITS). In vehicular ad hoc networks (VANETs), roadside units (RSUs) can provide assistance in finding a facility such as a restaurant or gas station, and broadcast traffic-related messages such as maximum curve turning speed notifications to give drivers a heads-up. VANETs open up new avenues to create conveniences and safer lifestyles. In order to protect VANET against security and privacy threats, the security mechanisms employed in VANETs should satisfy the following security requirements: authentication, integrity, nonrepudiation, access control and privacy. The following security primitives help securing VANET: primitives for confidentiality, primitives for data integrity and authentication, primitives for nonrepudiation and primitives for privacy.
