  • INES at Workshop on MDD and Software Product Lines

    Publicado em August 13th, 2009Publications

    INES researcher Daniel Lucrédio was invited to present his work “Evaluating the impact of MDD in software reuse”, in a workshop on Model-driven Development and Software Product Lines evolution, in a local workshop at PUC-RIO. The workshop will have two important keynote speakers: Jon Whittle and Jaejoon Lee (Lancaster University – UK).

    This activity is part of the project  “An Investigation of Methods, Processes, Tools, and Metrics for the Development of Software Product Lines (SPL)” — in portuguese, Uma Investigação de Processos, Ferramentas e Métricas para o Desenvolvimento de Linhas de Produto de Software.

  • Distributed Development Oriented by Software Product Lines

    Publicado em May 14th, 2009Uncategorized

    Software development is a complex and expensive process. To reduce complexity, improve the quality of systems, increase productivity and reduce time and development costs, several approaches based on software reuse have been proposed. Among them, it is possible to highlight the Software Product Lines (SPL), by enabling the systematic and predictable reuse, by the development of a set of software products with common core architecture and points of variation to each product. However, develop and grow a SPL requires the participation of several experienced professionals on problem domain, which is not always available in a single team or even organization. Thus, there is often a need to make used of distributed teams in different departments, organizations, cities, regions and countries, which in turn, characterizes the Distributed Software Development (DSD). DSD is still favoured by the need to fund and utilize resources, regardless of location and the possibility of the formation of agile development teams to exploit market opportunities. Therefore, this project aims to integrate models, methodologies and techniques for DSD and SPL to design processes and development tools to distributed development oriented by software product lines. The idea is to identify the DSD main problems and offer recommendations of how to divide the activities to distributed teams who develop a product line. This project is coordinated by UFPB and with the participation of the UFBA and UFS. For more information, contact the address
