SoQuo. In cooperation with BMW the Compentence Center
Software Maintenance develops and evaluates techniques for the
continuous quality control of long-lived software systems.
Quamoco Consortium – consisting of research institutions and
companies – has developed a quality standard applicable in
practice that makes the performance and efficiency of software
products made in Germany assessable and accountable.
Simdec. Supported by a Google Research Award the Compentence Center
Software Maintenance develops methods to automatically detect
behaviorally similar code in large software systems.
MANTUMa. Together with the MAN Nutzfahrzeuge AG the Compentence Center
Software Maintenance develops methods for the continuous control of
maintainability in the context of model-based development in the
EcoCAP. In cooperation with BMW the Compentence Center
Software Maintenance investigates the cost effectiveness of isolated
test environments in mainframe software development.
MOST. In the project MOST the Compentence Center
Software Maintenance develops techniques for supporting the
globally distributed development of software. Partner is this
project is ABB Distribution Automation (Finland).
PQL. In cooperation with Siemens Business Services the
maintenance group analyzes productivity and quality aspects of
long-lived software systems. The goal of this joint effort is to
increase efficiency and to improve quality of the software
maintenance process. In the course of this project we put existing
techniques to test and develop new approaches tailored for the
Siemens requirements. These approaches will be later on deployed
VSEK. VSEK is the distributed German competence center
for Software Engineering. VSEK's mission is to improve industrial
software development practices. The VSEK consortium delivers
Software Engineering expertise and provides a community for the
exchange of experiences between researchers and practitioners in
the field Software Engineering. As such VISEK is funded by the
German ministry for research and education.
