Next Generation Models, Tools, and Agile Processes
April 14 – 16, 2015; University of Southern California
Software and systems engineering models, tools, and processes continue to evolve at a rapid pace. Processes for the development of software-intensive systems have become more incremental and evolutionary as well as lean and agile. The models and tools needed to support these processes must also quickly evolve. Therefore, the 2015 Center for Systems and Software Engineering (CSSE) Annual Research Review (ARR) will focus on the next generation software and systems engineering models, tools, and lean and agile processes. Topics covered will include progress reports and workshops on COCOMO III and COSYSMO 3.0 and options for attending tutorials on our Incremental Commitment Spiral Model (with complementary copies) and on our Winbook requirements negotiation and prioritization.
The ARR will include research presentations from CSSE personnel on systems and software architecture, testing and analysis, processes, human factors, and tradespace analysis of cost, schedule, and quality factors or ilities. We will also have presentations by a couple of our Ph.D. graduates on what they are doing for their country’s government and for getting elementary school students excited about math and science. The objective of the ARR is to exchange ideas, highlight shared problems, and attempt to identify and evaluate promising models, methods, techniques, and tools to support successful engineering of software-intensive systems. A preliminary agenda is provided below.
