Design Effort Estimation using Complexity metrics

Salman, Nael
Doğru, Ali Hikmet
Component-oriented software development is a new trend and is becoming very popular these days. In addition to requiring a different development approach, the new orientation also requires a different metrics approach. A set of metrics for Component Oriented Software Engineering was first introduced in previous research. These metrics set were used to measure the quality of component-oriented software designs. The impact of these metrics on design effort is investigated in this paper. A statistical model is developed based on nine projects that carried out component-oriented software development. Design effort is expressed as a junction of a subset of the complexity metrics.

Evaluation of Agility Assessment Tools: A Multiple Case Study
Adali, Onat Ege; Özcan Top, Özden; Demirors, Onur (2016-06-10)
Agile software development has been one of the most important paradigms of software engineering community. Agile methods that are shaped around Agile Manifesto and principles, provide promising results when applied properly in software organizations. Agile assessment models and tools have potential to indicate agile adoption problems at project level or organization level. In the scope of this study, we identified 37 agility assessment tools. Among those tools, we evaluated 11 agility assessment tools based...
Assess agility : agility assessment approach supported with an automated web based agility assessment tool
Adalı, Onat Ege; Demirörs, Onur; Özcan Top, Özden; Department of Information Systems (2017)
Today, more and more organizations are adopting agile methodologies to their software development processes. However, this adoption process is not straightforward due to the extensive knowledge and effort required. Currently, most agile adopters use assessments at a regular basis to understand the extent of their agility and to determine the success of their agile adoption. There have been many studies conducted about agile assessment models in the literature. Still, these models require significant time an...
Tool support for distributed agile software development
Usta, Ahsen Serkan; Bilgen, Semih; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2006)
Agile Software Development has gained popularity with their people centric view and their common practices for developing software in today’s volatile business world where change on requirements is unavoidable. However; the efficiency of the project depends on the communication and the collaboration of the team, which are supported by the co-location of the team. But in some cases colocation of the team cannot be realized, thus agile processes should also support distributed teams. This point was observed b...
Using collaboration diagrams in component oriented modelin
Tuncel, Mehmet Burhan; Doğru, Ali Hikmet; Department of Computer Engineering (2006)
Component Oriented Software Engineering (COSE) seems to be the future of software engineering. Currently, COSEML is the only modeling language that completely supports the COSE approach. Abstract decomposition of the system and their representing components are shown in a hierarchy diagram to support the COSE process model. In COSEML, only static modeling is supported through this single diagram. However, software is about behavior and static modeling is not sufficient to describe the system. The aim of thi...
Characterizing the development and usage of diagrams in embedded software systems
Akdur, Deniz; Demirörs, Onur; Garousi, Vahid (2017-09-01)
To cope with growing complexity of embedded software, modeling has become popular. The usage of models in embedded software industry and the relevant practices usually vary since the purposes of diagram development and usage differ. Since a large variety of software modeling practices used in embedded software industry, it is important to understand its state-of-the-practice and its usage degree while investigating the relations between its attributes (e.g., modeling rigor, purpose, code correspondence, sta...
