The aim of this study is to build an evaluation framework for the user-centric testing of the Data Curation Tool. The tool was developed in the scope of the FAIR4Health project to make health data FAIR by transforming them from legacy formats into a Common Data Model based on HL7 FHIR. The end user evaluation framework was built by following a methodology inspired from the Delphi method. We applied a series of questionnaires to a group of experts not only in different roles and skills, but also from various parts of Europe. Overall, 26 questions were formulated for 16 participants. The results showed that the users are satisfied with the capabilities and performance of the tool. The feedbacks were considered as recommendations for technical improvement and fed back into the software development cycle of the Data Curation Tool.

Consensus clustering of time series data
Yetere Kurşun, Ayça; Batmaz, İnci; İyigün, Cem; Department of Scientific Computing (2014)
In this study, we aim to develop a methodology that merges Dynamic Time Warping (DTW) and consensus clustering in a single algorithm. Mostly used time series distance measures require data to be of the same length and measure the distance between time series data mostly depends on the similarity of each coinciding data pair in time. DTW is a relatively new measure used to compare two time dependent sequences which may be out of phase or may not have the same lengths or frequencies. DTW aligns two time serie...
Optimum design and operation of 'a pump-piping-storage system'
Kaplan, H; Seireg, A; Dölen, Melik (Inderscience Publishers, 2001-01-01)
The study reported in this paper is undertaken to develop a computer simulation and an optimum design and operation strategy for a general storage system. The influence of various design parameters on the total operation cost of the system for a general delivery regime is also studied.
Using data analytics for collaboration patterns in distributed software team simulations
Dafoulas, Georgios A.; Serce, Fatma C.; SWİGGER, Kathleen; BRAZİLE, Robert; Alpaslan, Ferda Nur; Alpaslan, Ferda Nur; Milewski, Allen (2016-08-05)
This paper discusses how previous work on global software development learning teams is extended with the introduction of data analytics. The work is based on several years of studying student teams working in distributed software team simulations. The scope of this paper is twofold. First it demonstrates how data analytics can be used for the analysis of collaboration between members of distributed software teams. Second it describes the development of a dashboard to be used for the visualization of variou...
Usability Problem Reports for Comparative Studies: Consistency and Inspectability
Vermeeren, Arnold P. O. S.; Attema, Jelle; Akar, Evren; de Ridder, Huib; van Doorn, Andrea J.; Erbuğ, Çiğdem; Berkman, Ali E.; Maguire, Martin C. (2008-01-01)
This study explores issues of consistency and inspectability in usability test data analysis processes and reports. Problem reports resulting from usability tests performed by three professional usability labs in three different countries are compared. Each of the labs conducted a usability test on the same product, applying an agreed test protocol that was collaboratively developed by the labs. Each lab first analyzed their own findings as they always do in their regular professional practice. A few weeks ...
Fuzzy querying im XML databases
Üstünkaya, Ekin; Yazıcı, Adnan; Department of Computer Engineering (2004)
Real-world information containing subjective opinions and judgments has emerged the need to represent complex and imprecise data in databases. Additionally, the challenge of transferring information between databases whose data storage methods are not compatible has been an important research topic. Extensible Markup Language (XML) has the potential to meet these challenges since it has the ability to represent complex and imprecise data. In this thesis, an XML based fuzzy data representation and querying s...
