We are currently re-organizing the projects in the SE department. This web page will be updated during the spring of 2009.
- MOOSE - Maintenance in Object-Oriented Software Engineering
- The project performs empirical studies to better understand how one can improve the maintainability of evolving object-oriented software. Research questions addressed by this project include: What content and level of detail of the Unified Modeling Language (UML) are required for efficient software maintenance, and how should the UML artifacts be developed and maintained? What are the key product factors (e.g., design properties) and process factors (e.g., design activities) that affect (negative/positive trends in) maintainability? How can we build, evaluate and apply prediction models to help focus quality improvement efforts (e.g., better UML documentation, refactoring, testing) on those parts of the software system with the highest potential of return on investment?
