  • MacDonell, SG; Gray, AR (Springer-Verlag; 1998)
    Software metrics are playing an increasingly important role in software development project management, with the need to effectively control the expensive investment of software development of paramount concern. Research ...
  • 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 ...
  • Gray, A; MacDonell, SG (AUT University, Elsevier; 1997)
    The use of regression analysis to derive predictive equations for software metrics has recently been complemented by increasing numbers of studies using non-traditional methods, such as neural networks, fuzzy logic models, ...
  • Limbu, D; Connor, AM; MacDonell, SG (AUT University; 2005)
    The amount of information on the Internet is constantly growing and the challenge now is one of finding relevant information. Contextual information retrieval (CIR) is a critical technology for today's search engines to ...
  • Limbu, DK; Connor, AM; MacDonell, SG (International Society for Computers and Their Applications (ISCA), AUT University; 2005)
    Search engines are the most commonly used type of tool for finding relevant information on the Internet. However, today’s search engines are far from perfect. Typical search queries are short, often one or two words, and ...
  • Kilgour, RI; Gray, AR; Sallis, PJ; MacDonell, SG (Springer-Verlag; 1998)
    Software source code authorship analysis has become an important area in recent years with promising applications in both the legal sector (such as proof of ownership and software forensics) and the education sector (such ...
  • 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 ...
  • Licorish, S; Philpott, A; MacDonell, SG (ISRST, AUT University; 2009)
    In light of unacceptable rates of software project failure agile development methodologies have achieved widespread industry prominence, aimed at reducing software project risks and improving the likelihood of project ...
  • Kirk, D; MacDonell, S (AUT University, IEEE; 2009)
    Planning and replanning software projects involves selecting activities according to organisational policies, project goals and contexts, deciding how to effect the activities, and dealing with uncertainty in activity ...
  • Felizardo, KR; MacDonell, SG; Mendes, E; Maldonado, JC (AUT University, Academy Publisher; 2012)
    A systematic literature review (SLR) is a methodology used to find and aggregate all relevant existing evidence about a specific research question of interest. Important decisions need to be made at several points in the ...
  • 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 ...
  • Kirk, D; MacDonell, S (Delta/Publizon, AUT University; 2009)
    There is, at the present time, no model to effectively support context-aware process change in small software organisations. The assessment reference models, for example, SPICE and CMMI, provide a tool for identifying gaps ...
  • Connor, A; MacDonell, SG (AUT University, McMaster University; 2004)
  • 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 ...
  • MacDonell, SG; Gray, AR (AUT University; 1996)
    The use of ‘standard’ regression analysis to derive predictive equations for software development has recently been complemented by increasing numbers of analyses using less common methods, such as neural networks, fuzzy ...
  • Schmidt, F; MacDonell, SG; Connor, AM (Springer (Studies in Computational Intelligence v.377), AUT University; 2012)
    A variety of sources have noted that a substantial proportion of non trivial software systems fail due to unhindered architectural erosion. This design deterioration leads to low maintainability, poor testability and reduced ...
  • McLeod, L; Macdonell, S; Doolin, B (AUT University, Association for Information Systems - AIS Electronic Library (AISeL); 2004)
    A Web-based survey of 106 large New Zealand organisations was undertaken to gain an understanding of their IS development practices. The survey focussed on the contribution of standard methods and user participation to IS ...
  • 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 ...
  • Gottgtroy, P; Kasabov, N; Macdonell, S (AUT University, Springer-Verlag; 2004)
    The explosion of biomedical data and the growing number of disparate data sources are exposing researchers to a new challenge - how to acquire, maintain and share knowledge from large and distributed databases in the context ...
  • Gottgtroy, P; Kasabov, N; Macdonell, S (AUT University, WIT Press/COPPE/Federal University of Rio de Janeiro; 2004)
    Knowledge discovery in evolving domains presents several challenges in information extraction and knowledge acquisition from heterogeneous, distributed, dynamic data sources. We define an evolving process if the process ...
