Empirical Model Building and Methods SS2018
Course in Summer Term 2018
- Dr.-Ing. Andreas Jedlitschka
ContentsThis lecture provides the basic knowledge that a successful researcher or quality manager needs today. On the basis of practical examples, it shows how to plan and realize empirical methods in software engineering, which empirical methods are used for testing research hypotheses, which empirical methods are used for descriptive modeling of software products and processes, and which empirical methods are used for improving either software product models or software process models. Contents of the class include:
- Definition of the basic terms of empirical / experimental software engineering
- The procedure of experimentation
- Formulation of hypotheses
- Design of empirical studies
- Acquisition, validation and analysis of data
- Interpretation of data
- Empirical modelling
- Examples of concrete empirical studies
