Microsoft secrets : how the world's most powerful software company creates technology, shapes markets, and manages people by Michael A Cusumano( Book )

18 editions published in 1995 in English and German and held by 1,532 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Today, Microsoft commands the high ground of the information superhighway by owning the operating systems and basic applications programs that run on the world's 170 million computers. Beyond the unquestioned genius and vision of Bill Gates, what accounts for Microsoft's astounding success?" "For the first time, drawing on almost two years of onsite observation at Microsoft headquarters, eminent scientists Michael A. Cusumano and Richard W. Selby reveal many of Microsoft's innermost secrets. From this inside report based on forty in-depth interviews by authors who had access to confidential documents and project data, Cusumano and Selby identify seven complementary strategies that characterize exactly how Microsoft competes and operates. Bill Gates' "Brain Trust" of talented employees and exceptional management, "bang for the buck" competitive strategies, and clear organizational goals produce an orientation toward self-critiquing, learning, and improving; a flexible, incremental approach to product development; and a relentless pursuit of future markets." "Cusumano and Selby's masterful analysis successfully uncovers the distinctive way in which Microsoft has combined all of the elements necessary to get to the top of an enormously important industry - and stay there. Managers in many different industries, especially those concerned with rapidly evolving complex product features and high technical standards, will discover hundreds of invaluable lessons in this superbly readable book."--Jacket
Experimental software engineering issues : critical assessment and future directions : international workshop, Dagstuhl Castle, Germany, September 14-18, 1992 : proceedings by H. Dieter Rombach( Book )

16 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and Italian and held by 425 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"We have only begun to understand the experimental nature of software engineering, the role of empirical studies and measurement within software engineering, and the mechanisms needed to apply them successfully. This volume presents the proceedings of a workshop whose purpose was to gather those members of the software engineering community who support an engineering approach based upon empirical studies to provide an interchange of ideas and paradigms for research. The papers in the volume are grouped into six parts corresponding to the workshop sessions: The experimental paradigm in software engineering; Objectives and context of measurement/experimentation; Procedures and mechanisms for measurement/experimentation; Measurement-based modeling; packaging for reuse/reuse of models; and technology transfer, teaching and training. Each part opens with a keynote paper and ends with a discussion summary. The workshop served as an important event in continuing to strengthen empirical software engineering as a major subdiscipline ofsoftware engineering. The deep interactions and important accomplishments from the meeting documented in these proceedings have helped identify key issues in moving software engineering as a whole towards a true engineering discipline."--PUBLISHER'S WEBSITE

Cleanroom software development : an empirical evaluation by Richard W Selby( Book )

4 editions published between 1985 and 1986 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Cleanroom software development approach is intended to produce highly reliable software by integrating formal methods for specification and design, complete off-line development, and statistically based testing. In an empirical study, 15 three-person teams developed versions of the same software system; ten teams applied Cleanroom, while five applied a more traditional approach. This analysis characterize the effect of Cleanroom on the delivered product, the software development process, and the developers. The major results of this study are (1) most developers were able to apply the techniques of Cleanroom effectively; (2) the Cleanroom teams' products met system requirements more completely and had a higher percentage of successful test cases; (3) the source code developed using Cleanroom had more comments and less dense complexity; (4) the use of Cleanroom successfully modified aspects of development style; and (5) most Cleanroom developers indicated they would use the approach again. Originator-supplied keywords included: Software development methodology; Off-line software review; Software measurement; Methodology evaluation; Software management; and Empirical study
Comparing the effectiveness of software testing strategies by Victor R Basili( Book )

3 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study compares the results of code reading, functional testing, and structural testing in three aspects of software testing: fault detection effectiveness, fault detection cost, and classes of faults detected. Thirty two professional programmers and 42 advanced students applied the three techniques to four unit-sized programs in a fractional experimental design. The major results of this study are the following, (1) With the professional programmers, code reading detected more software faults and had a higher detection rate than did functional or structural testing, while functional testing detected more faults than did structural testing, but functional and structural testing were not different in fault detection rate, (2) In one advanced student subject group, code reading and functional testing were not different in faults found, but were superior to structural testing, while in the other advanced student subject group there was no difference among the techniques. (3) With the advanced student subjects, the three techniques were not different in fault detection rate. (4) Number of faults observed, fault detection rate, and total effort in detection depended on the type of software tested. (5) Code reading detected more interface faults than did the other methods. (6) Functional testing detected nor control than did the other methods. (7) When asked to estimate the percentage of faults detected, code readers gave the most accurate estimates while functional testers gave the least accurate estimates. Appendix B includes the source code for the word
