Commercially available software components come with the built-in functionality often offering end-user more than they need. A fact that end-user has no or very little influence on component’s functionality promoted nonfunctional requirements which are getting more attention than ever before. In this paper, we identify some of the problems encountered when(More)
This paper presents a European Master programme on global software engineering (SE), being put forward by four leading institutions from Sweden, UK, Netherlands and Italy. The Global SE European Master (GSEEM) programme aims to provide students with an excellence in SE based on sound theoretical foundations and practical experience, as well as prepare them(More)
Previous ultra-dependable real-time computing architectures have been specialised to meet the requirements of a particular application domain. Over the last two years, a consortium of European companies and academic institutions has been investigating the design and development of a Generic Upgradable Architecture for Real-time Dependable Systems (GUARDS).(More)
In component based software development, project success or failure largely depends on correct software component evaluation. All available evaluation methods require time to analyse components. Due to the black box nature of components, preliminary judgments are made based on vendor descriptions. As there is no standard way of describing components,(More)
Use Case Modeling (UCM) has become an essential ingredient of computing courses, as it is widely used in object-oriented analysis and design. Although a simple concept, UCM is not straightforward to teach. We report on our experience gained in teaching students as a part of requirements engineering education at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. Two(More)
Space domain applications no longer depend solely on specially developed hardware and software. The specific requirements of this highly demanding application domain are being increasingly met by commercially available components. One software component which is definitely making its way into space projects is the real-time operating system (RTOS). Apart(More)
