  • Why Does Software Cost So Much? Toward a Causal Model (March 2017) March 2017 Author(s): Robert W. Stoddard, Michael D. Konrad, William Nichols, David Danks (Carnegie Mellon University), Kuh Zhang (Carnegie Mellon University) This presentation shares early research results that may confirm some well-known drivers of DoD software cost and debunk others.
  • Common Sense Guide to Mitigating Insider Threats, Fifth Edition December 2016 Author(s): Matthew L. Collins, Michael C. Theis, Randall F. Trzeciak, Jeremy R. Strozer, Jason W. Clark, Daniel L. Costa, Tracy Cassidy, Michael J. Albrethsen, Andrew P. Moore Presents recommendations for mitigating insider threat based on CERT's continued research and analysis of over 1,000 cases.
  • Quantifying Uncertainty in Early Lifecycle Cost Estimation (QUELCE) December 2011 Author(s): Robert Ferguson, Dennis Goldenson, James McCurley, Robert W. Stoddard, David Zubrow, Debra Anderson The method of quantifying uncertainty described in this report synthesizes scenario building, Bayesian Belief Network (BBN) modeling and Monte Carlo simulation into an estimation method that quantifies uncertainties, allows subjective inputs, visually depicts influential relationships among program change drivers and outputs, and assists with the explicit description and documentation underlying an estimate.
  • DoD Software Factbook December 2015 Author(s): Brad Clark, James McCurley, David Zubrow This DoD Factbook is an initial analysis of software engineering data from the perspective of policy and management questions about software projects.
  • Ultra-Large-Scale Systems: The Software Challenge of the Future June 2006 Author(s): Peter H. Feiler, Kevin Sullivan (University of Virginia), Kurt C. Wallnau, Richard P. Gabriel (Sun Microsystems), John B. Goodenough, Richard C. Linger (Oak Ridge National Laboratory), Thomas A. Longstaff, Rick Kazman, Mark H. Klein, Linda M. Northrop, Douglas Schmidt (Vanderbilt University) Ultra-Large-Scale Systems: The Software Challenge of the Future is the product of a 12-month study of ultra-large-scale (ULS) systems software.
