Construcción de un framework que facilite la implementación de VSE, según la norma ISO/IEC 29110

Fabián Germán, Cristian Manuel January 2015 (has links)
La mejora de una organización, depende básicamente de la forma en cómo hayan sido implementados los procesos y la definición correcta de los mismos, los cuales deben estar alineados a los intereses de la organización, además de ser adoptados y acogidos por las personas que las ejecutan de manera correcta. Sin embargo para llegar a cumplir con el enunciado antes citado se requiere de una serie de pasos, los cuales se convierten en una receta para lograr los objetivos deseados; el desconocimiento de estos pasos o receta son principalmente los que se convierten en trabas para que las pequeñas organizaciones no logren sus objetivos de cumplir con los estándares indicados por los modelos de procesos orientados a la calidad. El estudio propone un framework o marco de trabajo que facilite la implementación del modelo de proceso VSEs (de sus siglas en ingles Very Small Entity), según lo indicado en la norma ISO /IEC TR 29110-5-1-2. Mediante la utilización de framework, la idea principal es facilitar la adopción de la norma en las pequeñas organizaciones, con soporte guiado paso a paso para su implementación y proceso de evaluación. Su viabilidad queda demostrada con su puesta en práctica en algunos proyectos orientados a desarrollo de software. Para la elaboración del framework propuesto se ha tomado como referencia a varias herramientas como: i) Meycor CobiT, el cual es una completa herramienta integral e intuitiva para la implementación del marco CobiT, para la Gobernanza, la Gestión de riesgos tecnológicos, la Seguridad, el Control Interno, y el Aseguramiento de la TI, basado en COBIT ii) CMMI-Quest, esta herramienta permite efectuar evaluaciones de acuerdo al modelo CMMI-SE/SW en su representación continua. La evaluación se limita a asignar valores a los objetivos, no permite evaluaciones a nivel de prácticas (por debajo del nivel de los objetivos). No brinda soporte para el método SCAMPI. iii) IME Toolkit, esta herramienta permite efectuar evaluaciones de acuerdo al modelo CMMI SE/SW. Las evaluaciones consisten en asignar valores numéricos a las prácticas, en base a los cuales la herramienta genera puntuaciones (scores) para cada área de proceso. No brinda soporte para el método SCAMPI. No posee guías de asistencia para la evaluación. Además de estas herramientas de software, se ha investigado como parte integral del estudio, algunas de las normas ISO relacionadas, tales como la: i) NTPISO/ IEC 9126-2: Calidad del producto. ii) ISO 12207, Ciclo de vida del Software iii) ISO 15504, Evaluación de procesos. / --- The improvement of an organization depends essentially as how processes have been implemented and the correct definition of them, which must be aligned with the interests of the organization, besides being adopted and embraced by the people who run correctly. However to get to meet the aforementioned statement requires a series of steps, which becomes a recipe for achieving the desired objectives; ignorance of these steps or drugs are mainly those who agree obstacles for small organizations do not achieve their objectives to meet the standards established by process models oriented to quality. The study proposes a framework that facilitates the implementation process model VSE, as indicated in ISO / IEC TR 29110-5-1-2 standard. Using the framework, the main idea is to facilitate the addition of the rule on small organizations, with support guided step by step for implementation and evaluation process. Its feasibility is demonstrated by its implementation in some projects to develop software. For developing the proposed framework is taken as a reference to several framework as: i) Meycor CobiT, which is a complete comprehensive and intuitive tool for implementing the CobiT framework for Governance, Management technological risks, Security, Internal Control and Assurance IT, based on COBIT ii) CMMI-Quest, this tool allows for assessments according to CMMI-SE / SW in the continuous representation. The assessment is limited to assign values to the objectives, does not allow practical level assessments (below the level of the targets). It does not provide support for the SCAMPI method. iii) IME Toolkit, this tool allows for assessments according to CMMI-SE / SW. Evaluations include assigning numerical values to practices, based on which the tool generates scores (scores) for each process area. It does not provide support for the SCAMPI method. No assistance has guides for evaluation. In addition to these software tools, has been investigated as an integral part of the study, some of the ISO standards related, such as: i) ISO / IEC 9126-2: Quality of product. ii) ISO 12207, Software Lifecycle iii) ISO 15504, process evaluation.

Zend Framework / Zend Framework

Kutišová, Magda January 2012 (has links)
The diploma thesis compares first and second version of the PHP framework Zend Framework. It examines framework architecture and technology changes that were brought about by its second version released stable in September 2012. It demonstrates the changes using a practical example application and evaluates them by a set of diverse criteria. The introductory part of the thesis characterizes and classifies web frameworks and determines their place among other software frameworks. In the subsequent part the thesis looks into fundamental characteristics and history of Zend Framework and puts it into its place among web frameworks based on their previous classification. The practical part, that represents the majority of thesis, demonstrates the differences between the first and the second version of Zend Framework using the example application, starting with framework installation and configuration, describing its architecture and ending with evaluation of its speed and security.

A study about e-loyalty using the Bagozzi framework

Åberg, Louise, Pham, Tam, Tomsfelt, Johan January 2013 (has links)
Purpose - The aim of this study is to explain two relationships: between e-loyalty and the emotional responses (e-trust and e-satisfaction) and between these emotional response and the appraisals (e-service quality and e-reputation). Method – The quantitative approach and survey method were used in this study. Both Internet survey and personal survey method were used to administrate the questionnaire. The sample of 221 students was employed in this paper. Finding – Using Bagozzi’s framework, the authors constructed the four relationships which were tested in this study. The result indicates the more satisfied customers feel about the purchase, the more loyal they become. In addition, when customers trust that the e-tailer is credible and benevolent, they tend to be more loyal. The finding also shows that the better service quality, the more satisfied customers feel about the purchase. Finally, the result indicates that the more reputed the e-tailer is in term of being honest and concerned to customers, the more customers trust in them. Originality/value – This study is one of the limited number of study using Bagozzi’s framework to research e-loyalty. In addition, this study also tried to bridge the gap in research about e-loyalty using Bagozzi’s framework by taking e-trust and e-reputation into account.

Development and application of an evaluation framework for injury surveillance systems

Mitchell, Rebecca Jane, Public Health & Community Medicine, Faculty of Medicine, UNSW January 2008 (has links)
Information from injury data collections is widely used to formulate injury policy, evaluate injury prevention initiatives and to allocate resources to areas deemed a high priority. Obtaining quality data from injury surveillance is essential to ensure the appropriateness of these activities. This thesis seeks to develop a framework to assess the capacity of an injury data collection to perform injury surveillance and to use this framework to assess the capacity of both injury mortality and morbidity data collections in New South Wales (NSW) Australia to perform work-related or motor vehicle crash (MVC)-related injury surveillance. An Evaluation Framework for Injury Surveillance Systems (EFISS) was developed through a multi-staged process, using information from the literature to identify surveillance system characteristics, SMART criteria to assess the suitability of these characteristics to evaluate an injury data collection, and by obtaining feedback on the characteristics from a panel of surveillance experts using a two round modified Delphi study. At the conclusion of development, there were 18 characteristics, consisting of 5 data quality, 9 operational, and 4 practical characteristics, that were identified as important for inclusion within an EFISS. In addition, a rating system was created for the EFISS characteristics, based on available evidence and reasonable opinion. The evaluation of six injury data collections using the EFISS for their capacity to perform either work- or MVC-related injury surveillance illustrated the inability of any of the data collections to enumerate all cases of either work- or MVC-related injury mortality or morbidity in NSW or to capture all of the data considered necessary for work- or MVC-related injury surveillance. This evaluation has identified areas for improvement in all data collections and has demonstrated that for both work- and MVC-related injury surveillance that multiple collections should be reviewed to inform both work- and MVC-related policy development and injury prevention priority setting in NSW. The development of an EFISS has built upon existing evaluation guidelines for surveillance systems and provides an important step towards the creation of a framework specifically tailored to evaluate an injury data collection. Information obtained through an evaluation conducted using an EFISS would be useful for agencies responsible for injury data collections to identify where these collections could be improved to increase their usefulness for injury surveillance, and ultimately, for injury prevention.

Application of design patterns in framework development

Della, Lewis, n/a January 1999 (has links)
Since the coining of the term "Design Patterns" in the software engineering context, and specifically as related to object-oriented applications, there has been an increasing emphasis placed on the relevance of patterns in successfully designing object-oriented software, by the provision of generic, recurring designs. Various authors have produced design pattern catalogues as a record of applied design pattern experiences [Buschmann+96] [Gamma+95] [Coad92]. These catalogues are invaluable to experienced practitioners. However, the examples are frequently given in the context of a complex application with partially coded examples. Also, there is no standard with regard to the name used to designate a particular design pattern and, in some cases, different designers have designated relatively similar patterns with quite different names. This limits their accessibility to less experienced designers who require fully coded examples applied in a familiar landscape. Thus, while patterns have dramatically shaped the manner in which object-oriented solutions are developed, the full realisation of their use and reuse potential by inexperienced practitioners is limited by lack of completely coded examples. In this thesis we consider the implementation (in Java), using fully coded examples, of a number of design patterns applied to business oriented applications. These will be applied in an application specific environment, with the resultant framework being capable of use across a family of similar applications. The source code examples are compact enough so that the pattern structure can be readily appreciated, while at the same time being large enough to demonstrate the pattern in a practical, viable sense. These are applied in a familiar application domain, business-oriented applications, resulting in an application framework, that is, a partially completed system that provide the core architecture functionality, suitable for reuse across a family of systems. In this way, the link between design patterns and their implementation via these coded frameworks will be easier to comprehend. It is anticipated that the end result will be a better appreciation of design patterns and a clearer understanding of how to apply these patterns, with the availability of a set of useful, reusable software components, with appropriate interface connection, to be used as central building blocks, in developing object-oriented solutions for business applications.

A Framework for Multi-Channel Telecommunication : Applied to TeleCare Application

Ruan, Yifan January 2015 (has links)
This thesis is deriving from a telemedicine project "TeleCare" of constructing soft- ware for remote medical diagnosis between the doctor and the patient. The software has to fix the problem of managing local and remote media information. This thesis presents a telecommunication framework for synchronizing multiple media chan- nels, following research methodology, from problem description, iterative and incre- mental development to prototype finalization. For the framework, I have described the framework requirements and corresponding architecture design and implemen- tation. From the evaluation result of "TeleCare" software developed above it, I can conclude the framework has reached the problem.

Applying the New Zealand Performance Based Design Fire Framework to Buildings Designed in Accordance with NFPA5000

Yip, Chin Hung (Marco) January 2011 (has links)
A framework for performance based fire design is in the process of being developed by the Department of Building and Housing and such a framework may become a compulsory methodology for performance based fire design in the future. The framework has been developed with the intention of providing a similar level of safety to a building as if the building is designed in accordance with the New Zealand compliance document C/AS1. Ten design fire scenarios have been included in the framework to ensure buildings will be challenged. Design fires for particular building uses, tenability criteria for occupant safety, detector criteria to determine detection time and pre-movement time for egress calculation have been specified in the framework. In order to provide a comparison of the framework against the international building code, three complex case studies have been applied to buildings designed in accordance with NFPA5000 and investigated using the input values and methodologies described in the framework. The case study buildings selected are a retail warehouse, a hospital and a shopping mall. The selection of the buildings was based on complexity of building layout, likelihood of rapid fire growth and high occupancy. Zone modelling (BRANZFIRE modelling) and Computational Fluid Dynamics (Fire Dynamic Simulation modelling) have been utilised in an Available Safe Egress Time (ASET) and Required Safe Egress Time (RSET) analysis. Results of the research showed that the framework provided a robust and consistent method for performance based fire design and the guidance provided in the framework gave a clear methodology to determine the ASET and the RSET. In additional, the framework provided an even more restrictive requirement than the prescriptive requirement in the NFPA5000 in relation to external walls fire resistance and mezzanine floor fire resistance. Conversely, it provided a too relaxed requirement than the prescriptive requirement in the NFPA5000 in relation to means of egress and fire/smoke compartmentation.
