Seçkin, Haldun
This study investigates software development process improvement approaches. In particular, the static process evaluation methodology proposed by S. Güceğlioğlu is applied on the requirements analysis and validation process applied in Project X in MYCOMPANY and an improved process is proposed. That methodology is an extension of the ISO/IEC 9126 approach for software quality assessment, and is based on evaluating a set of well-defined metrics on the static model of software development processes. The improved process proposed for Project X is evaluated using Güceğlioğlu’s methodology. The applied and improved process measurement results compared to determine if the improved process is successful or not.

Face detection in active robot vision
Önder, Murat; Halıcı, Uğur; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2004)
The main task in this thesis is to design a robot vision system with face detection and tracking capability. Hence there are two main works in the thesis: Firstly, the detection of the face on an image that is taken from the camera on the robot must be achieved. Hence this is a serious real time image processing task and time constraints are very important because of this reason. A processing rate of 1 frame/second is tried to be achieved and hence a fast face detection algorithm had to be used. The Eigenfa...
An analysis of the maincritical factors that affect the acceptance of technology in hospital management systems
Peker, Can; Özkan Yıldırım, Sevgi; Department of Information Systems (2010)
The purpose of this study is to develop a methodology by extending the Technology Acceptance Model (Davis, 1989) in order to contribute the acceptance of Hospital Management Systems in hospitals. The study also aims to extend the TAM by adding external variables. Thereby the relationships between perceived usefulness, perceived ease of use and external TAM factors and how these relationships will affect the behavioral intention to use the technology will be determined. In this study quantitative research me...
Software process improvement
Elalmış, Mert Erkan; Yücel, Melek D; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2007)
In this thesis the software development process and in particular, the requirements management processes in a major software development company have been investigated. The current problems related to requirements quality and process performances have been identified. Process improvement measures have been proposed based on the suggestions found in the relevant literature. The current process and the improved version have been compared with respect to the process evaluation metrics proposed particularly for...
Analysis of extended feature models with constraint programming
Karataş, Ahmet Serkan; Oğuztüzün, Mehmet Halit S.; Department of Computer Engineering (2010)
In this dissertation we lay the groundwork of automated analysis of extended feature models with constraint programming. Among different proposals, feature modeling has proven to be very effective for modeling and managing variability in Software Product Lines. However, industrial experiences showed that feature models often grow too large with hundreds of features and complex cross-tree relationships, which necessitates automated analysis support. To address this issue we present a mapping from extended fe...
Software reliability assessment
Kaya, Deniz; Bilgen, Semih; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2005)
In spite of the fact that software reliability studies have attracted great deal of attention from different disciplines in 1970s, applications of the subject have rarely been involved in the software industry. With the rise of technological advances especially in the military electronics field, reliability of software systems gained importance. In this study, a company in the defense industries is inspected for their abilities and needs regarding software reliability, and an improvement proposal with metri...
