Description:
This is a research topic that blends theoretical and practical analysis. The aim is to identify disruptions (discontinuities) that can occur during software development projects and consider the impact(s) they might have on outcomes. These may arise due to transitions between development stages and/or independently of staging. The analysis might investigate individual discontinuities or different categories of discontinuities. Part A will involve identification and definition (from the literature and/or practice) of the disruptions and their effects. Part B will involve validating your disruption profiles against real world experience.
Comments:
Dr Paul Bannerman is a NICTA research scientist and conjoint UNSW/CSE research fellow. You will need to attend review meetings at the NICTA ATP laboratory near the Redfern train station (13 Garden Street, Eveleigh).
This topic may be of interest to students considering post-graduate research. It provides basic foundations in independently investigating a research topic.
Being research only, the topic is most suitable for students with an average total WAM of 75 or higher.
