  • Connor, AM; Douglas, SS; Gilmartin, MJ (WIT Press; 1995)
    This paper presents a methodology for the synthesis of path generating mechanisms using Genetic Algorithms GAs). GAs are a novel search and optimisation technique inspired by the principles of natural evolution and survival ...
  • Connor, AM; Shea, K (Springer; 2000)
    This paper presents an investigation of two search techniques, tabu search (TS) and simulated annealing (SA), to assess their relative merits when applied to engineering design optimisation. Design optimisation problems ...
  • Connor, AM; Finlay, J (ARPN International Journal of Information and Communication Technology Research; 2011)
    In this paper, we describe the extraction of source code metrics from the Jazz repository and the application of data mining techniques to identify the most useful of those metrics for predicting the success or failure of ...
  • Connor, AM (ARPN Journal of Systems and Software; 2011)
    This paper describes the extraction of source code metrics from the Jazz repository and the systematic application of data mining techniques to identify the most useful of those metrics for predicting the success or failure ...
  • Connor, AM (Computing and Information Technology Research and Education, New Zealand (CITRENZ).; 2007)
    This paper presents a framework for the representation of uncertainty in the estimates for software design projects for use throughout the entire project lifecycle. The framework is flexible in order to accommodate uncertainty ...
  • Talbot, A; Connor, AM (IEEE Computer Society; 2011)
    This paper presents research on current industry practices with respect to requirements engineering as implemented within software development companies in New Zealand. A survey instrument is designed and deployed. The ...
  • Philpott, A; Buchan, J; Connor, AM (Software Engineering Research Group (SERG), the University of Auckland; 2007)
    This paper considers the possible benefits of an integrated Software Engineering tool set specifically tailored for novice developers, and reflects on the experience of having software engineering students produce various ...
  • Connor, AM (IEEE; 2006)
    This paper proposes that current memory models in use for tabu search algorithms are at best evolving, as opposed to adaptive, and that improvements can be made by considering the nature of human memory. By introducing new ...
  • Connor, AM; Shah, A (Academy & Industry Research Collaboration Center (AIRCC) Publishing Corporation; 2014)
    This research is focused on solving problems in the area of software project management using metaheuristic search algorithmsand as such is research in the field of search based software engineering. The main aim of this ...
  • Connor, AM; Finlay, J.A.; Pears, R (Academy & Industry Research Collaboration Center (AIRCC) Publishing Corporation; 2014)
    This paper explores the concepts of modelling a software development project as a process that results in the creation of a continuous stream of data. In terms of the Jazz repository used in this research, one aspect of ...
  • Connor, AM (Professional Engineering Publishing; 1998)
    This paper presents an overview of a design methodology for the optimal synthesis of hybrid mechanisms. Hybrid mechanisms have been defined as multi-degree of freedom systems where the input motions are supplied by different ...
  • Licorish, SA; MacDonell, SG (ACM; 2013)
    Context: Interest in software engineering (SE) methodologies and tools has been complemented in recent years by research efforts oriented towards understanding the human processes involved in software development. This ...
  • Licorish, SA; MacDonell, SG (ACM; 2013)
    Context: Given the acknowledged need to understand the people processes enacted during software development, software repositories and mailing lists have become a focus for many studies. However, researchers have tended ...
  • Bosu, MF; MacDonell, SG (ACM; 2013)
    Context: The utility of prediction models in empirical software engineering (ESE) is heavily reliant on the quality of the data used in building those models. Several data quality challenges such as noise, incompleteness, ...
  • McLeod, L; Doolin, B; MacDonell, SG (John Wiley & Sons; 2012)
    Answering the call for alternative approaches to researching project management, we explore the evaluation of project success from a subjectivist perspective. An in-depth, longitudinal case study of information systems ...
  • Kaskenpalo, P; MacDonell, SG (ACM Press; 2012)
    The potential disconnect between research and practice in software engineering (SE) means that the uptake of research outcomes has at times been limited. In this paper we seek to identify research approaches that are ...
  • Tahir, A; MacDonell, SG (IEEE Computer Society; 2012)
    Several important aspects of software product quality can be evaluated using dynamic metrics that effectively capture and reflect the software's true runtime behavior. While the extent of research in this field is still ...
  • Clear, Tony; Hussain, W; MacDonell, SG (IEEE Computer Society Press; 2012)
    Global software development practices are shaped by the challenges of time and 'distance', notions perceived to separate sites in a multi-site collaboration. Yet while sites may be fixed, the actors in global projects are ...
  • Licorish, SA; MacDonell, SG (IEEE Computer Society Press, AUT University; 2012)
    There is a growing belief that understanding and addressing the human processes employed during software development is likely to provide substantially more value to industry than yet more recommendations for the implementation ...
  • Shepperd, M; MacDonell, SG (Elsevier, AUT University; 2012)
    Context Software engineering has a problem in that when we empirically evaluate competing prediction systems we obtain conflicting results. Objective To reduce the inconsistency amongst validation study results and ...
