      It is well known that requirements changes in a later phase of software developments is a major source of software defects and costs. Thus, the need of techniques to control or reduce the amount of changes during software ...
    • Measuring architectural adaptability in i* models 

      Pimentel, João Henrique; Franch Gutiérrez, Javier; Castro, Jaelson (2011)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      Developing adaptable systems is still a big challenge in software engineering. Different reference architectures and systematic approaches have been proposed to address this challenge. Several of these approaches are based ...
    • Practical applications of i* in industry: the state of the art 

      Yu, Eric; Amyot, Daniel; Mussbacher, Gunter; Franch Gutiérrez, Javier; Castro, Jaelson (IEEE Computer Society Publications, 2013)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      i* is a goal-oriented and agent-oriented modeling framework that focuses on the analysis of intentional and strategic relationships among actors. In this mini-tutorial, we highlight a number of recent applications in ...
    • Specification of failure-handling requirements as policy rules on self-adaptive systems 

      Pimentel, João Henrique; Castro, Jaelson; Franch Gutiérrez, Javier (2012)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      Most adaptive systems have compensation mechanisms for recovering from or preventing failures. However, sometimes a compensation is not essential. Hence, diagnosing and compensating each and every one of their failures ...
    • Towards anticipating requirements changes through studies of the future 

      Pimentel, João Henrique; Castro, Jaelson; Perelli, Hermano; Santos, Emanuel; Franch Gutiérrez, Javier (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2011)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      Whilst it is considered a good practice to focus Requirements Engineering on current stakeholder needs, the high costs implied by requirements changes and the emergence of the Autonomic Computing paradigm raised the need ...
