Open lecture of Paul Clements – one of the leaders in Software Architectures

ESICEE Editor Avatar

On October 18th, 2010 from 19:00 h in the Aula of Sofia University “St. Kliment Ohridski” Paul Clements, expert of the Software Engineering Institute at Carnegie Mellon University (USA), will deliver a lecture on Product lines 2.0 – Visionary speech on process discipline and software product lines. The lecture is organized by the center for Eastern Europe of the European Software Institute and Faculty of Mathematics and Informatics under the project “Software Engineering Management Program” (SEMP). Paul Clements is in Sofia for the “Software Engineering and IT Quality conference: SPI MEETS IN SOFIA 2010”, hosted by ESI Center Bulgaria.

Software product lines represent a development methodology that has resulted in order-of-magnitude improvements in schedule, cost, quality, and productivity.    Now, several new software technologies are aligning to make product lines even more of a winning strategy for software development.  This talk will briefly explore some of the most promising of those technologies, and speculate what their effect will be on software product line engineering.

Before coming to the SEI in 1994, Dr. Clements worked for the U. S. Naval Resarch Laboratory in Washington. There, he participated in (and eventually led) the Software Cost Reduction or “A-7” project. SCR produced and validated a methodology for hard-real-time embedded software development for systems with long life-cycles by re-designing and re-implementing the avionics software for the Navys A-7E aircraft. SCR pioneered techniques in modular software design, requirements engineering and specification, software architecture and architectural structures, interface specification and documentation, and real-time performance engineering.
