Table 4. Comparison of diierent sizing algorithm when sizing 16-bit buses under 2x-6x minimum pitch-spacing. MIN is the minimum wire width (and thus maximum spacing) solution; GISS/FAF and GISS/VAF are bottom-up dynamic programming algorithms; GISS/ELR is the algorithm presented in this paper. outside the range deened by the resulting lower and upper(More)

SUMMARY Software Process Improvement (SPI) encompasses the analysis and modification of the processes within software development, aimed at improving key areas that contribute to the organizations' goals. The task of evaluating whether the selected improvement path meets these goals is challenging. On the basis of the results of a systematic literature(More)
1 Overview This document provides extended material to the publication " Evaluation and Measurement of Software Process Improvment-A Systematic Literature Review ". Section 2 describes how the initial search was conducted in order to identify existing systematic reviews regarding software process improvements. Section 3 lists in detail the identified SPI(More)
Experimental results are shown in Tables 1 and 2. We compare tree length (TL), the sum total path length for all p i ! p j pairs (TPL), and tree diameter D. Also included are the maximum delay between any source-sink pair (MD) and the average of maximum delays for each source (AMD), averaged over all runs. Delays were measured from the input transition to(More)
