In this article, we consider the problem of planning inspections and other tasks within a software development (SD) project with respect to the objectives quality (no. of defects), project duration, and costs. Based on a discrete-event simulation model of SD processes comprising the phases coding, inspection, test, and rework, we present a simplified(More)
Organizations that develop software have recognized that software process models are particularly useful for maintaining a high standard of quality. In the last decade, simulations of software processes were used in several settings and environments. This paper gives a short overview of the benefits of software process simulation and describes the(More)
In Gal and Hanne [Eur. J. Oper. Res. 119 (1999) 373] the problem of using several methods to solve a multiple criteria decision making (MCDM) problem with linear objective functions after dropping nonessential objectives is analyzed. It turned out that the solution does not need be the same when using various methods for solving the system containing the(More)
Nature-inspired algorithms usually use some form of attraction and diffusion as a mechanism for exploitation and exploration. In this paper, we investigate the role of attraction and diffusion in algorithms and their ways in controlling the behavior and performance of nature-inspired algorithms. We highlight different ways of the implementations of(More)
