      Kenza Meridji, Alain, " Software Engineering Principles: Do they Meet Engineering Criteria? " , "Journal of Software Engineering and Applications jsea",Vol.3,No.10, , , 11/20/2010 Abstract:
      ABSTRACT As a discipline, software engineering is not as mature as other engineering disciplines, and it still lacks a consensus on a well-recognized set of fundamental principles. A 2006 analysis surveyed and analyzed 308 distinct proposals of prin-ciples for software engineering, of which only thirty-four met the criteria to be recognized as principles. This paper reports on a further analysis of these thirty-four candidate principles using two sets of engineering criteria derived from: A) the engineering categories of knowledge defined by Vincenti in his analysis of engineering foundations; B) the joint IEEE and ACM software engineering curriculum. The outcome of this analysis is a proposed set of nine software engineering principles that conform to engineering criteria. Keywords: Engineering criteria; Software engineering principles; Vincenti; Engineering verification criteria Download

      Abstract: Currently, embedded and real time systems are used in wide range of a related human applications to improve the quality of our lives such as embedded systems for communication ( Mobile, satellite, and avionics systems), and control systems such as (microwaves, refrigerators and embedded system in vehicles). Nevertheless, embedded and real time systems are still immature. The application of these systems is used for various devices. However, these systems are never used for a human body to complete human missing-part functionality; which means the embedded system can be used as part of natural neural networks in a human system nerve. This paper proposes a technical view to build an electronic glass (E-Glass) for the blind people. Moreover, this paper provides the complete E-Glass electronic circuit in which the electronic scanning system to tackle the objects and time signals are included. This EGlass could be used by the blind to assist them in their ways without any human assistance. Moreover, it will be used by the blind to make them self confidence, to let them walk independently and to increase their morality. It is important to note that the hardware and software components of the E-Glass are not expensive. This work could be provided to the practitioner’s people in the industry or to the students of the department of electrical or biomedical engineering.

      Alain Abran and Kenz, " Analysis of Software Engineering from an Engineering Perspective " , "",Vol.,No., , , 11/24/2006 Abstract:
      Walter G. Vincenti, in his book "What engineers know and how they know it", has proposed a taxonomy of engineering knowledge. Software Engineering, as a discipline, is certainly not yet as mature as other engineering disciplines, and some authors have even challenged the notion that Software Engineering is indeed engineering. To investigate this issue, Vincenti’s categories of engineering knowledge are used to analyze the SWEBOK (Software Engineering Body of Knowledge) Guide from an engineering perspective. This paper presents an overview of the Vincent’si categories of engineering knowledge, followed by an analysis of the engineering design concept in Vincenti vs. the design concept in the SWEBOK Guide: this highlights in particular the fact that Vincenti’s engineering design concept is not limited to the design phase knowledge area in the SWEBOK Guide, but that it pervades many of the SWEBOK knowledge areas. Finally, the SWEBOK Software Quality knowledge area is selected as a case study, and analyzed using Vincenti’s classification of engineering knowledge. Download

      This chapter presents the proposed model of combination between Photovoltaic solar system resources and sound biometric techniques, to generate power energy from the sunlight using the PVS controlled by a sound biometric technique. This work contributes to research knowledge by proposing and validating a sound biometric technique for allowing to reduce the consumption of the generated power energy by turn the lights on for the public roads only when there are vehicles on the way and only for some period of time to make the driving out of harm's way and trouble-free. The proposed and combination models between the PVS and biometric sound chip is used for generating electric power by using solar cells to convert energy from the sun light into a flow of direct current electricity, which can be used to power equipment or to recharge a battery. In addition the Sound biometric techniques can enable PVS to listen and understand their surrounding auditory environment since turning the lights on all the time will get through a lot of energy which it might be used in other significant concerns.




      Ali Maqousi 1 , Tati, " A REFERENCE MODEL OF SECURITY REQUIREMENTS FOR EARLY IDENTIFICATION AND MEASUREMENT OF SECURITY AWARENESS PROGRAM " , "Journal of Theoretical and Applied Information Technology",Vol.63,No.1, , , 05/10/2014 Abstract:
      In practice, at software/system requirements assembly stages, the focus is regularly on the software security requirements as usually described at the system level this may lead to explicit security-related product which may be implemented as both in system and software. According to the ECSS standards internal security awareness is restricted to avoid illegal access to the software system and confidential data while the external security requirements related awareness is failing to put off the leak of secure output data awareness and illegal processes. In European, ISO 25021 a amount of terms are afforded to describe many types of aspirant security awareness requirements. This paper accumulates and systematizes these security awareness-related requirements into a standards-based reference model of the software security awareness; In the absence of such a model, such security awareness requirements are definitively assigned at software system testing time, stakeholders find out that a number of Security awareness requirements are neglected and additional efforts should be added to implement such awareness’s. Moreover, the proposed model may also be used for identify the functional size of security awareness programs using the ISO 19761 standard. This size may be used for estimation purposes.




      Ahmad Al-Khasawneh; , " Towards a framework for quantifying system non-functional data definition and database requirementsInternational Journal of Data Analysis Techniques and Strategies " , "Journal",Vol.6,No.2, Underscience Publisher (IJDATS), , , 03/10/2014 Abstract:
      Abstract: In practice, during the system requirements gathering phase, the focus is often on the functional requirements of the system, while non-functional requirements are often captured by system analysts at a very global level. The European ECSS series of standards for the aerospace industry includes data definition and database requirements as one of sixteen types of non-functional requirement (NFR) for embedded and real time systems. A number of data definition and database related concepts are dispersed throughout the ECSS standards to describe at varying levels of details the various types of candidate data definition and database requirements at the system, software, and hardware levels. This paper organises these dispersed data definition and database concepts into a standards-based reference framework of system data definition and database requirements. The availability of this generic, and detailed, reference model can facilitate the early identification and specification of the system data definition and database-NFR and their detailed allocation as specific data definition and database functions to be handled by the specified allocation to hardware, software or in a specific combination of both.

      Software engineering, as a discipline, is not yet as mature as other engineering disciplines and it lacks criteria to assess, from an engineering perspective, the current content of its body of knowledge as embedded in the SWEBOK Guide. What is then the engineering knowledge that should be embedded within software engineering? Vincenti, in his book ‘What engineers know and how they know it’ has proposed a taxonomy of engineering knowledge types.To investigate software engineering from an engineering perspective, these Vincenti’s categories of engineering knowledge are used to identify relevant engineering criteria and their presence in SWEBOK.

      Kenza Meridji, Ghass, " A Development Approach of Software Requirements for Renewable Energy Applications Using Fundamental Principles of Software Engineering " , "Information Technology for Renewable Energy IT-DREPS ",Vol.,No., , Amman-Jordan, 05/29/2013 Abstract:
      Energy engineering is a new multi-disciplinary engineering field to develop innovative renewable energy systems. On other hand software engineering (SE) is an emerging engineering discipline. The goal of this emerging discipline is the development software’s with high quality, compared with other traditional engineering fields, software engineering lacks maturity. Much of the research done up to date concentrated on developing tools and methods and less work has been done on the development of the foundations for instance, such as defining the principles and the application of these principles to software development. This paper proposes a development approach for renewable energy software’s using candidate’s principles for software engineering. In addition, to the process of operationalization of some selected engineering principles for renewable energy software’s.




      Khalid T. Al-Sarayre, " Towards of A priori and Posteriori Estimation Models for Renewable Energy Projects in Software Engineering " , "Information Technology for Renewable Energy IT-DREPS",Vol.,No., , , 05/29/2013 Abstract:
      currently, cost estimation for renewable energy projects is one of the important issues in software engineering projects. It has been observed in the industry that cost estimates of renewable energy (RE) projects often differ from the final costs by a factor of two or more; such large overestimates impact on process integrity and ultimately, on final quality. RE development organizations are expected to deliver projects on time and with estimated budget in a context of fixed-price contracts. To meet these market demands, managers must determine well in advance such estimates which are called the a priori cost estimation. These organizations typically use estimation techniques based either on informal opinions or organizational experience, or on a posteriori estimation models developed internally or developed by outside consultancy. This paper collects most of the common used models of the cost estimation models throughout the apriori and aposteriori contexts, and highlights some of the confusion in using these estimation models in software engineering development projects for RE and lists some of the estimation techniques used in A priori and A posteriori contexts.

      Photovoltaic system (PVS) is used for generating electric power by using solar cells to convert energy from the sun light into a flow of direct current electricity, which can be used to power equipment or to recharge a battery. In addition, the Sound biometric techniques can enable PVS to listen and understand their surrounding auditory environment since turning the lights on all the nights will get through a lot of energy which it might be used in other significant concerns. This paper proposed a model of combination between PVS to generate power energy (electricity) from the sunlight controlled by a sound biometric technique to reduce the consumption of the generated power energy by turning the lights on for the highways only when there are cars on the highway and only for some period of time to make the driving out of harmful ways and trouble-free; followed by an implementation of the proposed combination model between the PVS and biometric sound chip and a presentation of a discussion of the proposed system results.
