Towards Collaboration-Centric Pattern-Based Software Development Support

Dorn, C., Egyed, A., (2013) Towards Collaboration-Centric Pattern-Based Software Development Support  (preprint), In Proceedings of the 6th International Workshop on Cooperative and Human Aspects of Software Engineering (CHASE 2013) co-located with the International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE), May 2013, San Francisco, USA, to appear.

Abstract: Software engineering activities tend to be loosely coupled to allow for flexibly reacting to unforeseen development complexity, requirements changes, and progress delays. This flexibility comes a the price of hidden dependencies among design and code artifacts that make it difficult or even impossible to assess change impact. Incorrect change propagation subsequently results in costly errors.
This position paper proposes a novel approach based on monitoring engineering activities for subsequent high-level pattern detection. Patterns of (i) collaboration structures, (ii) temporal action sequences, and (iii) artifact consistency constraints serve as input to recommendation and automatic reconfiguration algorithms for ultimately avoiding and correcting artifact inconsistencies.

Flexible Social Workflows: Collaborations as Human Architecture

Dorn C., Taylor R.N., Dustdar S. (2012). Flexible Social Workflows: Collaborations as Human Architecture. IEEE Internet Computing, vol.16 no.2, pp.72-77, IEEE Computer Society, http://doi.ieeecomputersociety.org/10.1109/MIC.2012.33,

Abstract: Human process involvement has gained momentum in recent years, but the proposed mechanisms can’t efficiently adapt Web-scale collaborative workflows. Here, the authors describe collaborative problem solving and its integration with process-support systems as an architecture comprising human components and connectors. This modeling of coordination and execution roles enables reasoning on workflow flexibility and appropriate adaptation actions.
