Project retrospectives can be powerful tools for project teams to collectively identify communication gaps and practices to improve for future projects. However, even if project members take the time for a retrospective, it can be hard to correctly remember and jointly discuss past events in a constructive way. Fact-based timelines that visualize a(More)
Today, the demand for software that is ‘intuitive to use’ is very high. In fact, this has become a determining factor for the success of a system. However, building software that is intuitive to use is challenging. This is particularly true for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). They have to face a variety of problems to remain competitive: Usually(More)
Beclomethasone dipropionate (BDP) is a potent pro-drug to beclomethasone (BOH) and is used in the treatment of chronic and acute respiratory disorders in the horse. The therapeutic dose of BDP (325 microg per horse) by inhalation results in very low plasma and urinary concentrations of BDP and its metabolites that pose a challenge to detection and(More)
Project retrospectives can be a powerful tool for process improvement through obtaining new insights. However pure experience-based reflections may lead to incorrect conclusions. Our method, evidence-based timeline retrospectives (EBTR), mitigates this risk by providing a pre-generated timeline that visualises project history based on evidence rather than(More)
Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) currently infects billions of people; many of whom are latently infection and at risk for reactivation. Mycobacterium bovis Bacille Calmette-Guerin (BCG) while approved as a vaccine, is unable to prevent reactivation of latent tuberculosis infection (LTBI). Subunit vaccines boosting BCG or given alone are being tested for(More)
Requirements engineering (RE) is widely recognized as a crucial factor for the success of software projects. Therefore, companies often request assessments of RE processes and resulting artifacts to identify issues and improvement potential. However, industry claims that current assessment approaches do not always fulfill their needs regarding efficiency(More)
Driver distraction is an important risk factor for road traffic injuries, and has been the focus of a number of empirical studies aiming to raise awareness about the risks of distracted driving and to promote countermeasures. While some of the recorded road incidents in these studies have their roots in distracting events (such as mobile phone usage) a(More)
Der vorliegende Beitrag beschreibt einen partizipativen Ansatz zur Entwicklung von digitalen Diensten für ländliche Regionen. Im Projekt „Digitale Dörfer“ realisiert das Projektteam gemeinsam mit den Einwohnern von drei Verbandsgemeinden in Rheinland-Pfalz verschiedene Mitmachszenarien zur Stärkung des Wir-Gefühls innerhalb der Gemeinschaft und zur(More)
Background: Disruption of the balance between apoptosis and proliferation is considered to be an important factor in the development and progression of tumor. In this study we determined the in vivo cell kinetics along the spectrum of apparently normal epithelium, hyperplasia, preinvasive lesions and invasive carcinoma, in breast tissues affected by(More)
