A formal application of safety and risk assessment in software systems
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2004., 2004-09)
The current state of the art techniques of Software Engineering lack a formal method and metric for measuring the safety index of a software system. The lack of such a methodology has resulted in a series of highly publicized ...
A metric model for Intranet portal business requirements
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2003-12)
This research provides the first theoretical model--the Intranet Efficiency and Effectiveness Model (IEEM)--for the Family of Measures approach to measure Web activity as well as a holistic framework and multi-disciplinary ...
Evolving a simulation model product line software architecture from heterogeneous model representations
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2003-09)
National- and Department-level decision-makers expect credible Department of Defense models and simulations (M and S) to provide them confidence in the simulation results, especially for mission-critical and high-risk ...
Holistic framework for establishing interoperability of heterogeneous software development tools
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2003-06)
This dissertation presents a Holistic Framework for Software Engineering (HFSE) that establishes collaborative mechanisms by which existing heterogeneous software development tools and models will interoperate. Past research ...
Enhancements and extensions of formal models for risk assessment in software projects
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2002-09)
The Modified Risk Model is a macro model developed to aid program managers in effectively planning the required effort to deliver software products. The model projects the probability of completing a software project, ...
Heterogeneous software system interoperability through computer-aided resolution of modeling differences
(Monterey, California: Naval Postgraduate School, 2002-06)
Meeting future system requirements by integrating existing stand-alone systems is attracting renewed interest. Computer communications advances, functional similarities in related systems, and enhanced information description ...
A software technology transition entropy based engineering model
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2002-03)
Currently, systematic techniques for assessing macro mechanisms for transferring software engineering technologies are non-existent. This leads to inefficient allocation of research resources and increased risk to software ...
A Layered software architecture for Hard Real Time (HRT) embedded systems
(Monterey, California.: Naval Postgraduate School, 2002., 2002-03)
The current state of the art techniques to describe and implement a hard real time embedded software architecture for missile systems range from inadequate to totally non-existent. Most of the existing software implementations ...
An architectural model for software component search
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1995-12)
An important problem in software development process is to make better use of software libraries by improving the search and retrieval process, that is, by making it easier to find the few components you may want among the ...
Reusable software component retrieval via normalized algebraic specifications
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1991-12)
Efforts in the software engineering community to reuse code are hampered by a lack of tools. Reusability is particularly beneficial in a rapid prototyping environment. Rapid prototyping with automated reusable software ...
