Measures represent important data in all engineering disciplines. This data allows engineers to understand how things work and how to make changes to produce desired results. In software engineering, it is difficult to collect useful measures because developers do not consider it an important activity, compared to coding. Moreover, manual collected data is(More)
The goal of this paper is to investigate the relation between object-oriented design choices and defects in software systems, with focus on a real-time telecommunication domain. The design choices are measured using the widely accepted metrics suite proposed by Chidamber and Kemerer for object oriented languages [S.R. Chidamber, C.F. Kemerer, A metrics(More)
Pair Programming has been shown to increase communication and teamwork skills and to provide better code. The aim of this work is to show the efficacy of Pair Programming in transferring knowledge and skills over an environment where people met only occasionally. In a quasi experiment, we find that Pair Programming is effective in sharing knowledge among 15(More)
This work focuses on the analogies and the differences between Lean Management and Extreme Programming. Lean Management (LM) is a management strategy that continuously tries to improve business processes focusing only on activities that provide value to the customer. The word lean means that only activities that increase the provided value for the customer(More)
Lean management is based on two concepts: the elimination of Muda, the waste, from the production process, and Jidoka, the introduction of quality inside the production process and product. In software production, the elimination of Muda received significant attention, while Jidoka has not yet been fully exploited. In this work we want to propose a holistic(More)
PURPOSE A classification of parastomal hernias (PH) is needed to compare different populations described in various trials and cohort studies, complete the previous inguinal and ventral hernia classifications of the European Hernia Society (EHS) and will be integrated into the EuraHS database (European Registry of Abdominal Wall Hernias). METHODS Several(More)
