C.E.S.A.R and Avaya Labs started cooperation

The Recife Center for Advanced Studies and Systems (C.E.S.A.R) and Avaya Labs (U.S.) started an agreement for cooperation in the next three years involving efforts in the software reuse area. The agreement defined by the Reuse in Software Engineering (RiSE) group – reuse group from C.E.S.A.R – and the research director from Avaya, Dr. David Weiss, started with a project in the software reuse tools area.

In this project, Liana Barachisio, software engineer and software reuse researcher at C.E.S.A.R, moved to Avaya Labs during five weeks to work together with Dr. David’s team. In this project, C.E.S.A.R and Avaya are identifying requirements for a software product line automation tool based on Avaya’s process.

The idea is to participate on the development of an artifact in the software product line as a way to understand the process’ guidelines. Therefore, a better know-how can be taken to C.E.S.A.R., whose software product line area is starting. After that, a comparison can be done between Avaya’s consolidated software product line process and the one being applied in C.E.S.A.R., with the goal of identifying possible improvements in both sides.
