" Theories are practical because they allow knowledge to be accumulated in a systematic manner and this accumulated knowledge enlightens professional practice " (Gregor, 2007). Abstract The common understanding of Design Science Research in Information Systems (DSRIS) continues to evolve. Only in the broadest terms has there been consensus: that DSRIS(More)
—The Object-Oriented (OO) paradigm has become increasingly popular in recent years. Researchers agree that, although maintenance may turn out to be easier for OO systems, it is unlikely that the maintenance burden will completely disappear. One approach to controlling software maintenance costs is the utilization of software metrics during the development(More)
One practical goal of sensor deployment in the design of distributed sensor systems is to achieve an optimal monitoring and surveillance of a target region. The optimality of a sensor deployment scheme is a tradeoff between implementation cost and coverage quality levels. In this paper, we consider a probabilistic sensing model that provides different(More)
The relevance gap between academic research and the world of practice is a perennial topic of discussion in all fields, including the information technology disciplines. The common sense view of the issue concludes that academic research frequently fails to address the 'street level' problems that business information technology wrestles with, and so isn't(More)
A shared concern of knowledge based systems (KBS) development and traditional information system development is the choice of modeling construct most natural to the information (knowledge) structures being modeled, and to human practitioners in the modeled application area. Research in cognitive psychology has shown that human reasoning about non-trivial(More)
