  1. Refactoring technical support to reduce interrupts of developers

    The analysis presented in this paper shows that developers can be interrupted many times during core developer hours by support requests. The paper shows how data analysis of a 6-month support time helped to identify gaps and action items for improving the technical support process to minimize interrupts from other developer teams. The paper also shows effects (advantages and drawbacks) of refactor actions taken on the basis of this analysis.

    The proposed model provide fully automated regression testing methodology that prioritizes test cases for regression testing at each sprint of the agile-based projects, and selects test cases to be used in regression testing at the end of the release. It is composed of two main techniques: Weighted Sprint Test cases Prioritization (WSTP) Technique and Cluster-based Release Test cases Selection (CRTS) Technique
