Software process modeling and execution within virtual environments
John C. Doppke, Dennis Heimbigner, Alexander L. Wolf
Pages: 1-40
DOI: 10.1145/268411.268415
In the past, multiuser virtual environments have been developed as venues for entertainment and social interaction. Recent research focuses instead on their utility in carrying out work in the real world. This research has identified the...

Understanding the sources of variation in software inspections
Adam Porter, Harvey Siy, Audris Mockus, Lawrence Votta
Pages: 41-79
DOI: 10.1145/268411.268421
In a previous experiment, we determined how various changes in three structural elements of the software inspection process (team size and the number and sequencing of sessions) altered effectiveness and interval. Our results showed that such...

Toward formalizing structured analysis
Luciano Baresi, Mauro Pezzè
Pages: 80-107
DOI: 10.1145/268411.268429
Real-time extensions to structured analysis (SA/RT) are popular in industrial practice. Despite the large industrial experience and the attempts to formalize the various “dialects,” SA/RT notations are still imprecise and ambiguous....
