We describe a software artefact repository that provides its contents with some awareness of their own creation. " Active " artefacts are distinguished from their passive counterparts by their enriched meta-data model which reflects the work-flow process that created them, the actors responsible, the actions taken to change the artefact, and various other(More)
The types of awareness relevant to collaborative software engineering are identified and an additional type, " historical awareness " is proposed. This new type of awareness is the knowledge of how software artefacts resulting from collaboration have evolved in the course of their development. The types of awareness that different software engineering(More)
When software is being created by distributed teams of software engineers , it is necessary to manage the work-flow, processes, and artefacts which are involved in the engineering process. The GENESIS project aims to address some of the technical issues involved by providing a software system to support distributed development. One of the parts of the(More)
With increasing globalisation of software production, widespread use of software components, and the need to maintain software systems over long periods of time, there has been a recognition that better support for collabora-tive working is needed by software engineers. In this paper, two approaches to developing improved system support for collaborative(More)
The Open Source Component Artefact Repository (OS-CAR) was developed under the auspices of the GENESIS project to store data produced during the software development process. Significant problems were encountered during the course of the project in both the development itself and management of the project. The reasons for and potential solutions to these(More)
Reverberation chamber measurements typically rely upon spatially averaged squared pressure for the calculation of sound absorption, sound power, and other acoustic values. While a reverberation chamber can provide an approximately diffuse sound field, variations in sound pressure consistently produce uncertainty in measurement results. This paper explores(More)
The Open Source Component Artefact Repository (OS-CAR) system is a component of the GENESIS platform designed to non-invasively inter-operate with work-flow management systems, development tools and existing repository systems to support a distributed software engineering team working collaboratively. Every artefact possesses a collection of associated(More)
Five institutionalized retarded women were taught a clothing selection skill to coincide with popular fashion. Normative data concerning popular styles of color-coordinated clothing were collected through observations of women's apparel in a local community. Using a puzzle simulation of a woman with alternative pieces of colored clothing, color coordination(More)
In this paper, the adaptive reuse of Plone; an open source content management system is described. In one instance, Plone has been used as the backbone of a collaboration and communication support infrastructure within a large research project. In the other, Plone has been used as the main web-presence of a specialist group of the British Computer Society.(More)
