Software Product Line Engineering is becoming widely used due to the improvement it means when developing software products of the same family. The commonalities and variabilities of Software Product Lines (SPL) are identified during the Domain Engineering process and then, they are realized in the software architecture. Therefore, mechanisms to explicitly(More)
Bodies of Knowledge (BOK), contain the relevant knowledge for a disciplines as example Software Engineering (SE), System Information (SI), Information Technology (IT), Computer Science (CS), Medicine, Economics, and others areas of knowledge. BOK describes relevant knowledge for a discipline, and will need show the consensus in the Knowledge Areas (KA), and(More)
Traceability is recognized to be important for supporting agile development processes. However, after analyzing many of the existing traceability approaches it can be concluded that they strongly depend on traditional development process characteristics. Within this paper it is justified that this is a drawback to support adequately agile processes. As it(More)
The Bloom taxonomy is used in the SWEBOK to specify the expected level of understanding of each topic within its knowledge areas (KA) for a 'graduate plus four years of experience'. This paper discusses how Bloom's taxonomy could be expanded to be more useful not only for education but also for industry. A new taxonomy that is more applicable to engineering(More)
The potential shown by Lean in different domains has aroused interest in the software industry. However, it remains unclear how Lean can be effectively applied in a domain such as software development that is fundamentally different from manufacturing. This study explores how Lean principles are implemented in software development companies and the(More)
Traceability analysis is a technique that enables the verification of software requirements within the software life cycle. Within a context where there is a lack of common understanding of what must be traced, a number of methods have been proposed to implement software requirements traceability analysis, many of these methods dealing with software(More)
