      Some characteristics observed in process domains such as healthcare, scientific data processing, and laws should be considered for inheritance by computer software. These characteristics seem inherent in those domains but are not equally prominent in computer software. The growth of their utilization in computer software would strengthen the view that these are characteristics of the more abstract class of objects that we refer to as software.

    2. A generalized duration forecasting model of test-and-fix cycles (pages 877–889)

      Dynamic modeling of test-and-fix cycles has provided good forecasting of test phase durations and support for resource allocation and process improvement decisions. A generalized model of test-and-fix phases has been produced from an analysis of commonality and variation in six project models. The generalized model can be configured to support test phase planning of duration and resources.

    3. Supporting collaborative development using process models: a tooled integration-focused approach (pages 890–909)

      Komlan Akpédjé Kedji, Redouane Lbath, Bernard Coulette, Mahmoud Nassar, Laurent Baresse and Florin Racaru

      We question the use of process-centered software engineering environments as central orchestrators of development environments. Our proposal exploits deep links and hooks to integrate process concerns into such environments with less friction.

    4. Taxonomy for software teamwork measurement (pages 910–922)

      Pierre N. Robillard, Mathieu Lavallée, Yvan Ton-That and François Chiocchio

      This paper presents a taxonomy of software team dynamics composed of nine episodes. Each episode type is illustrated with examples observed in an industrial capstone project. The validation of the taxonomy appropriateness has demonstrated that 96% of the activities can be categorized by these episodes. This work provided the constructs to build models of team dynamics that could outline cause and effect relationships and enable the comparisons of results from the literature.
