    PAM-SMEs is an assesment method for software process improvement (SPI) helping small to medium enterprises (SMEs) to tailor their SPI program to business objectives with respect to their resources limitiation. All SMEs research partner demonstrated that the capability of PAM-SMEs to align SPI activities to business objectives and optimized with their resources limitation.

    This paper aims to improve the software cost estimations by embedding firefly algorithm with the existing artificial neural network models used in software cost predictions. The artificial neural network models examined in this work include redial basis function network and functional link artificial neural networks models. The block diagram for firefly algorithm-functional link artificial neural networks is shown in the figure.

  5. In two minds: how reflections influence software design thinking (pages 394–426)

    Reflection (Mind 2) helps in improving the quality of design discourse (Mind 1). We classified two types of reflections: (i) external reflections made by a third party to the designers and (ii) internal reflections as challenges self-raised by the designers. Software designers need both Mind 1 and Mind 2 to obtain a higher-quality design discourse as a foundation for a good design.
