WEBSYS has stated the
The main objective of WEBSYS is to
develop high-quality research competence and concrete guidelines for the
industrial development of timely and reliable Web-based systems.
Specific objectives related to competence
G1: Better understanding of the
software process and related technologies that concerns how to make
trade-offs between the Time To Market (TTM) and reliability in web-based
systems. The work will focus on empirical methods, data analysis and model
building. We will increase our understanding through case studies and
experiments. In addition we will study the possibilities offered by methods
that can be used for requirement management and control, such as Quality
Function deployment (QFD) and by methods already used for reliability
prediction and estimation.
G2: Contribute to continuous
improvement of the software development process in companies where
reliability and TTM need to be considered together. By building on the
knowledge gained through using empirical methods we will be able to tailor
the necessary improvement activities to individual companies’ needs. This
will depend – among other things – on their application area, environment
stability and available resources.
G3: Dissemination and exchange of
knowledge gained. The aim is to disseminate PhD reports, research
papers, technical reports, educational and presentation material etc.
through the web, in own education and in appropriate national and
international for a (e.g. strengthen the cooperation with ISERN).
