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.

Robot planing based on learned affordances
Çakmak, Maya; Şahin, Erol; Department of Computer Engineering (2007)
This thesis studies how an autonomous robot can learn affordances from its interactions with the environment and use these affordances in planning. It is based on a new formalization of the concept which proposes that affordances are relations that pertain to the interactions of an agent with its environment. The robot interacts with environments containing different objects by executing its atomic actions and learns the different effects it can create, as well as the invariants of the environments that aff...
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...

Sarıkan (Tuncer), Nazlı; Güran, Hasan; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2004)
The aim of this thesis study is to develop a simulator for an 8-bit microcontroller and the written document of this thesis study analyses the process of devoloping a software for simulating an 8 bit microcontroller, MC68HC11. In this simulator study a file processing including the parsing of the assembler code and the compilation of the parsed instructions is studied. Also all the instruction execution process containing the cycle and instruction execution and the interrupt routine execution is observed th...
Resource based plan revision in dynamic multi-agent environments
Erdoğdu, Utku; Polat, Faruk; Department of Computer Engineering (2004)
Planning framework is commonly used to represent intelligent agents effectively and to model complex behavior. In planning framework, resource-based perspective is interesting in the sense that in a multi-agent environment, exchange of resources can form a cooperative interaction. In resource based plan coordination, each agent constructs an individual plan, then plans are examined by a central plan revision unit for possibilities of removing actions. Domain of this work is the classical postmen domain that...
A Static analysis approach for service oriented software engineering (SOSE) designs
Çermikli, Can; Doğru, Ali Hikmet; Department of Computer Engineering (2010)
In this thesis, a static analysis approach is introduced in order to develop correct business processes according to the Web Service Business Process Execution Language (WS-BPEL) specification. The modeling of the business processes are conducted with Business Process Execution Language (BPEL) which is a popular orchestrator of Service Oriented Architectures (SOA) based system through the description of workflow. This approach is also integrated to the Service Oriented Software Engineering (SOSE) design tec...
