A good understanding of the systems requirements has a high impact in the successful development of software products. Therefore, an appropriate requirements model must provide a comprehensive structure for what must be elicited, evaluated, specified, consolidated, and modified, instead of just providing facilities for software specifications. Since there(More)
The i* framework is a Goal-Oriented Requirement Engineering (GORE) approach that is widely applied at academic level. However, its application to industrial scenarios is limited. For the application of i* in concrete software development process, an alternative is to transform the defined requirements models into initial input models to be used by(More)
Nowadays, the emergence of several model-driven development (MDD) proposals that are related to multiple domains requires the definition of proper interoperability mechanisms that facilitate the reuse of knowledge in the MDD community by taking advantage of already defined modeling languages, tools, and standards. However, there are no recent studies that(More)
Many functional size measurement procedures have been developed for applying the COSMIC measurement method to particular methods of software production. A subset of these measurement procedures is centered on the measurement of the functional size of the applications from their conceptual models, allowing the generation of indicators in early stages of the(More)
The manual measurement of functional size is generally very time-consuming and has many precision errors. For this reason, it is necessary to automate the measurement process to obtain a solution that can be applied in a MDA industrial development. The OO-Method COSMIC Function Points (OOmCFP) is a measurement procedure that has been designed to measure the(More)
A self-administered mood management intervention program for smoking cessation provided through the mail to Spanish-speaking Latinos resulted in a 23% abstinence rate at 3 months compared to an 11% abstinence rate for a smoking cessation guide alone. Participants (N = 136) were randomly assigned to receive either the cessation guide (the Guía), or the Guía(More)
The effects of cultural factors on condom use were assessed in a random digit-dialing household survey of 1,600 unmarried Latino adults in 10 states with large Latino populations. Measures of traditional gender-role beliefs, sexual coercion, sexual comfort, and self-efficacy in using condoms were developed specifically for this population. A multisample(More)
The measurement of the functional size of applications generated in MDA environments is a challenge for the software development industry. This paper presents the OO-Method COSMIC Function Points (OOmCFP), a measurement procedure that has been designed to measure the functional size of object-oriented applications generated from their conceptual models by(More)
