Questioning software maintenance metrics: A comparative case study
Found in: 2012 6th International Symposium on Empirical Software Engineering and Measurement (ESEM)
By Dag I. K. Sjiberg,Bente Anda,Audris Mockus
Issue Date:September 2012
pp. 107-110
Context: Many metrics are used in software engineering research as surrogates for maintainability of software systems. Aim: Our aim was to investigate whether such metrics are consistent among themselves and the extent to which they predict maintenance eff...
 
Using concept mapping for maintainability assessments
Found in: Empirical Software Engineering and Measurement, International Symposium on
By Aiko Fallas Yamashita, Hans Christian Benestad, Bente Anda, Per Einar Arnstad, Dag I. K. Sjoberg, Leon Moonen
Issue Date:October 2009
pp. 378-389
Many important phenomena within software engineering are difficult to define and measure. One example is software maintainability, which has been the subject of considerable research and is believed to be a critical determinant of total software costs. We ...
 
Experiences from Conducting Semi-structured Interviews in Empirical Software Engineering Research
Found in: Software Metrics, IEEE International Symposium on
By Siw Elisabeth Hove, Bente Anda
Issue Date:September 2005
pp. 23
Many phenomena related to software development are qualitative in nature. Relevant measures of such phenomena are often collected using semi-structured interviews. Such interviews involve high costs, and the quality of the collected data is related to how ...
 
Applying Use Cases to Design versus Validate Class Diagrams - A Controlled Experiment Using a Professional Modelling Tool
Found in: Empirical Software Engineering, International Symposium on
By Bente Anda,Dag I.K. Sjøberg
Issue Date:October 2003
pp. 50
Several processes have been proposed for the transition from functional requirements to an object-oriented design, but these processes have been subject to little empirical validation. A use case driven development process is often recommended when applyin...
 
An Evaluation of Applying Use Cases to Construct Design versus Validate Design
Found in: Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences
By Erik Syversen, Bente Anda, Dag I. K. Sjøberg
Issue Date:January 2003
pp. 327a
Use case models capture and describe the functional requirements of a software system. A use case driven development process, where a use case model is the principal basis for constructing an object-oriented design, is recommended when applying UML. There ...
   
Conducting Realistic Experiments in Software Engineering
Found in: Empirical Software Engineering, International Symposium on
By Dag I. K. Sjøberg, Bente Anda, Erik Arisholm, Tore Dybå, Magne Jørgensen, Amela Karahasanovic, Espen F. Koren, Marek Vokác
Issue Date:October 2002
pp. 17
<p>An important goal of most empirical software engineering research is the transfer of research results to industrial applications. Two important obstacles for this transfer are the lack of control of variables of case studies, i.e., the lack of exp...

A case study on the application of UML in legacy development
Found in: Proceedings of the 2006 ACM/IEEE international symposium on International symposium on empirical software engineering (ISESE '06)
By Bente Anda, Kai Hansen
Issue Date:September 2006
pp. 124-133
Model-driven development with UML is becoming a de facto standard in industry, but although much of today's software development is about enhancing existing systems, there is no welldefined process for model-driven development in the context of legacy syst...
     
Effort estimation of use cases for incremental large-scale software development
Found in: Proceedings of the 27th international conference on Software engineering (ICSE '05)
By Bente Anda, Parastoo Mohagheghi, Reidar Conradi
Issue Date:May 2005
pp. 303-311
This paper describes an industrial study of an effort estimation method based on use cases, the Use Case Points method. The original method was adapted to incremental development and evaluated on a large industrial system with modification of software from...
     
Towards an inspection technique for use case models
Found in: Proceedings of the 14th international conference on Software engineering and knowledge engineering (SEKE '02)
By Bente Anda, Dag I. K. Sjoberg
Issue Date:July 2002
pp. 127-134
A use case model describes the functional requirements of a software system and is used as input to several activities in a software development project. The quality of the use case model therefore has an important impact on the quality of the resulting so...
