  • MsC Dissertation – A Traceability Technique for Change Impact Analysis from Business Concerns

    Antonio Oliveira Filho presented his Master dissertation – A Traceability Technique for Change Impact Analysis from Business Concerns (Uma Técnica de Rastreabilidade para Análise de Impacto de Mudanças em Interesses de Negócio), on 07/January/2010, at Unifacs.

    Antonio’s research has been developed at the Mestrado em Sistemas e Computaçāo, UNIFACS, under the supervision of Prof. Christina Chavez (UFBA).  This MsC dissertation is one of the results of the INES research project Models, Techniques and Tools for Software Evolution  (Modelos, Técnicas e Ferramentas para Evolução de Software).

    Abstract:

    Impact analysis is the identification of the potential consequences of a change, or estimating what needs to be modified to accomplish a change, including related costs and schedule estimates.

    In this work, we distinguish between two kinds of concerns related to impact analysis: (1) business-specific concerns, those related to stakeholders interested in checking if other business rules are impacted by the change and also need to be modified; and (2) software-specific concerns, those related to stakeholders interested in the impacted software artifacts that need to be modified. Several traceability techniques have been studied and none of them supported impact analysis that dealt with business-specific concerns with reasonable values of precision and recall for the discovered impacts.

    Our research work aims to support business-specific concerns during impact analysis, by proposing and evaluating a traceability technique that resorts on a new traceability model defined over business rules, with expected precision and recall values of 100%.

    The project “Models, Techniques and Tools for Software Evolution” (http://amigos.ines.org.br/ines/viewProject.do?projectId=8) had a short paper accepted for the 14th European Conference on Software Maintenance and Reengineering (CSMR 2010).

    Title: Network Models for Class Dependency Networks in Software

    Abstract: Software clustering algorithms can automatically decompose a software system into modules by analyzing the network of dependencies between its components (e.g., classes in object-oriented systems). Empirical evaluation of these algorithms is difficult because few software systems have reference decompositions to be compared with the decompositions found by the algorithms. Alternatively, the algorithms can be evaluated by applying them on computer-generated networks with built-in decompositions, but the validity of this approach depends on the similarity between real and computer-generated networks. In this paper we present three network models and show that, with a proper choice of parameters, they can generate networks that are indistinguishable from class dependency networks.
