Interoperability by means of configurable connectors

Kaya, Muhammed Çağrı
A configurable connector-based software development methodology for componentbased approaches is presented. This method involves the incorporation of variability modeling capabilities into component modeling environments. The focus of this research is on supporting technologies for the combination of parts that are not directly compatible. In the scope of this research, firstly, proposals for the configurable connector paradigm are put forth, that are, achieving interoperability among system components by using existing connectors to increase reuse and customizing them through simple user interfaces. This methodology is applied to the Live-Virtual-Constructive simulation systems domain as a confıgurable gateway application between Data Distribution Service for Real-Time Systems (DDS) and High-Level Architecture (HLA) standards. Finally, interoperability of different parties are investigated for Metrology and the calibration industry, and an Industrial Internet of Things-based architecture is established. Academic and industrial case studies have been conducted for proof of concept. They show the practicality of the proposed approaches.


Agilitymod: a software agility reference model for agility assessment
Özcan Top, Özden; Demirörs, Onur; Department of Information Systems (2014)
Agile software development methodologies have gained significant interest in IT community proposing solutions to problems of traditional, plan-driven software development approaches. However, not every organization that tries to adopt agile methods succeeds, that is mostly because practitioners misinterpret the agile values, principles or practices during the adoption and transformation or see a single agile method as a complete solution to all problems. There is a gap in the field to assist software organi...
Assessment of Agility in Software Organizations with a Web-Based Agility Assessment Tool
Adali, Onat Ege; Özcan Top, Özden; Demirors, Onur (2017-09-01)
Agile software development approaches have emerged to overcome the inherent challenges of the traditional software development methodologies. With that in mind, they offer a set of simple yet effective practices based on the values and supporting principles of the Agile Manifesto. Today, more and more organizations are practicing Agile but transitioning to Agile is not as straightforward as it might seem. The benefits afforded by the agile values, principles and practices are not fully obtained and adapters...
An Agile business process software development methodology
Çulha, Davut; Doğru, Ali Hikmet; Department of Computer Engineering (2014)
An agile business process software development methodology is proposed, developed and tested in this research. To speed up the business process software development practices in the organization and to address the requirements more efficiently, an agile approach was adapted. Two new processes were developed using the new methodology. The improvement was assessed by utilizing nine older developments: A formula was developed in this research that estimates the development efforts for old business process soft...
Empirical evaluation of a decision support model for adopting software product line engineering
Tuzun, Eray; Tekinerdogan, Bedir; Kalender, Mert Emin; Bilgen, Semih (2015-04-01)
Context: The software product line engineering (SPLE) community has provided several different approaches for assessing the feasibility of SPLE adoption and selecting transition strategies. These approaches usually include many rules and guidelines which are very often implicit or scattered over different publications. Hence, for the practitioners it is not always easy to select and use these rules to support the decision making process. Even in case the rules are known, the lack of automated support for st...
Composition Capability of Component-Oriented Development
Kaya, Muhammed Çağrı; Çetinkaya, Anıl; Doğru, Ali Hikmet (2017-10-30)
This research enhances component-oriented development approaches with the capability to represent the dynamic behavior of the final system through a process model. For an executable system, ordering of the message invocations should also be specified besides the definition of a set of components which only presents a static view. Components, however, are usually server kind software units that respond when a request is made. A central application can be expected to trigger some of the methods while some com...
