This thesis is a study on improving the software requirements management processes of embedded software department of a company. The literature on software process improvement and requirements engineering is reviewed. After determining the problems related to the current requirements management processes of the department, an improved process is proposed addressing these problems. The static process descriptions and the models of the current and improved requirements management processes are formed. A recently proposed pre-enactment model for measuring process quality is used for measuring the quality of the current and improved requirements management processes. Finally, the results of the process quality measurements are compared and evaluated.

Software project scheduling, software project performance measurement and control
Kanık, Yusuf; Koçyiğit, Altan; Department of Information Systems (2005)
This thesis is about software project scheduling and use of earned value method on software projects. As a result of the study, a solution for software project scheduling problems is proposed. A mathematical formulation, developed using integer programming method, is at the heart of the solution. Objective of the formulation is to minimize the development costs consisting of direct labor cost, indirect costs and probable penalty costs. The formulation takes the capability and compatibility variances among r...
An Automated defect detection approach for cosmic functional size measurement
Yılmaz, Gökçen; Demirörs, Onur; Department of Information Systems (2012)
Software size measurement provides a basis for software project management and plays an important role for its activities such as project management estimations, process benchmarking, and quality control. As size can be measured with functional size measurement (FSM) methods in the early phases of the software projects, functionality is one of the most frequently used metric. On the other hand, FSMs are being criticized by being subjective. The main aim of this thesis is increasing the accuracy of the measu...
Improvement proposal for a software requirements management process
Yamaç, Pınar Işıl; Bilgen, Semih; Department of Information Systems (2006)
This thesis focuses on measurement based software process improvement, especially improvement of requirements change management process. The literature on software measurement is investigated, software process improvement methodologies are studied and requirements change management metrics are examined. Requirements change management process at a private company working in the defense industry is observed and metrics obtained from various tools have been aggregated. Moreover, an improvement proposal, which ...
Management tool support for software aquisition and information systems outsourcing projects for Turkish land forces command
Pınar, Adem; Bilgen, Semih; Department of Information Systems (2004)
This thesis reviews the software acquisition models and management tools used for managing, tracking and planning the acquisition projects all around the world. Then the requirements of Turkish Land Forces Command (TLFC) for a project management tool are considered. Features of a project management tool that is suitable for TLFC are determined through the ideas of TLFC personnel of IS department. After evaluation of selected tools through the requirements of TLFC the best one is presented. Then an interface...
Investigation of the effects of structural characteristics of object-oriented software on fault-proneness
Gölcük, Halit; Bilgen, Semih; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2014)
This study investigates the effects of structural characteristics of object-oriented software, which are observable at the model level of the software developed by means of Unified Modeling Language (UML), on software quality, assessing quality in terms of fault-proneness. In the scope of this thesis study, real-time embedded software components developed by Aselsan, a leading defense industry company in Turkey, were analyzed. The correlation between software metrics measured from the UML models of the soft...
