A Pattern Language for Knowledge Handover when People Transition, accepted at LNCS Transactions on Pattern Languages of Programming (DBLP/Scopus)


Kei Ito, Joseph W. Yoder, Hironori Washizaki, and Yoshiaki Fukazawa, “A Pattern Language for Knowledge Handover when People Transition,” LNCS Transactions on Pattern Languages of Programming, Vol. 4, pp.1-32, 2018. (DBLP, Scopus indexed)(to appear)

Handover of knowledge and responsibilities can cause problems when people transfer to other parts of a company or retire. Handover issues be-came apparent in Japan when many people from the Baby Boomer Generation retired simultaneously in 2007. In particular, this was a resounding issue in the software industry. Most business people are familiar with the concept of a handover. Although effective handovers are crucial for seamless business oper-ations during personnel changes, the preferable elements for a handover are ambiguous. In this paper, we outline a “Pattern Language for Knowledge Handover when People Transition”. The pattern language consists of handover patterns. Actual handover patterns were pattern mined from our experience as well as from industrial interviews. We originally started with handover anti-patterns which identify actual problems for a handover. This led us to pattern mine the handover patterns that provide strategies to mitigate these problems. The examples are from software industry, but these patterns are applicable to other domains.

Dr. Truede (U. Adelaide) gave us a talk on software repositories, NLP and ML on Feb 2nd.


Dr. Truede (U. Adelaide) gave us very inshitful presentations titled Using NLP and ML to unlock information hidden in software repositories. Thank you for coming to Waseda! In relation to that, Yasuhiro gave a short talk on data-driven persona and we enjoyed much very productive discussions in software respositories, NLP and ML! See you all at ICSE 2018 and other venues.

10:00-11:00 (incl. discussions)
Title: Using NLP and ML to unlock information hidden in software repositories
Talker: Christoph Treude (University of Adelaide)

Knowledge management plays a central role in many software development organizations. While much of the important technical knowledge can be captured in software artifacts, there often exists a gap between the information needs of software developers and the structure of this information in a repository. To help developers access information in their repositories more effectively, we are developing approaches to analyze and repackage these artifacts into formats that are more amenable to their readers. This talk will highlight several such approaches that we have developed and evaluated to support the various stakeholders in a software engineering project, including a task-based search interface for software documentation, a code snippet content assist to import code fragments from Stack Overflow, a machine learning approach to augment API documentation with “insight sentences”, and a portal designed to help project newcomers. Our work suggests that while much of the knowledge needed by software developers is already available somewhere in a repository, much work is needed to get it to developers in the right format when and where they need it.

Christoph Treude is an ARC DECRA Fellow and a Senior Lecturer in the School of Computer Science at the University of Adelaide, Australia and currently visiting the Nara Institute of Science and Technology in Japan on a JSPS fellowship. He completed his PhD in Computer Science at the University of Victoria, Canada, in 2012 and received his Diplom degree in Computer Science / Management Information Systems from the University of Siegen, Germany, in 2007. The goal of his research is to advance collaborative software engineering through empirical studies and the innovation of processes and tools that explicitly take the wide variety of artifacts available in a software repository into account.

Retrospective based on Data-Driven Persona Significance in B-to-B Software Development, accepted at ICSE 2018 (CORE Rank A*) NIER Track


Yasuhiro Watanabe, Hironori Washizaki, Kiyoshi Honda, Yoshiaki Fukazawa, Masahiro Taga, Akira Matsuzaki, Takayoshi Suzuki, Takayoshi Suzuki, “Retrospective based on Data-Driven Persona Significance in B-to-B Software Development,” 40th International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE 2018)(CORE Rank A*), New Ideas and Emerging Results (NIER) Track, May 27 – 3 June 2018, Gothenburg, Sweden

A Business-to-Business (B-to-B) software development company develops services to satisfy their customers’ requirements. Developers should prioritize customer satisfaction because customers greatly influence on agile software development. However, it is possible that a B-to-B software development company has following issues: 1) failure to understand actual users because the requirements are not often derived from actual users and 2) failure to satisfy the future customers’ requirements when only satisfying current customers. Although many previous works proposed methods to elicit the requirements based on actual quantitative data, these works had not considered customers and end-users simultaneously. Herein we proposed Retrospective based on Data-Driven Persona Significance (ReD2PS) to help developers to plan future releases. ReD2PS includes Persona Significance Index (PerSiI) to reflect the correspondence between target users, which developers assume based on requirements in releases, and end-users’ personas. A case study involving a Japanese cloud application shows that PerSiI reflects the relationship between target users and end-users to discuss about the validity and effectiveness of ReD2PS.

*Achievements* (FY2017FY2016)
2017: We published and presented 5 international journal papers indexed in SCIE, ESCI and DBLP, 22 international conference and workshop papers (incl. 2 at CORE Rank A conferences, 5 at Rank B, and 3 at Rank C), 4 international conference and workshop posters, 8 magazine articles and books, and 32 talks incl. two keynotes at international workshops. Moreover, our activities have been reported so frequently in many news medias including Yomiuri Shimbun, Tokyo Shimbun, Nikkan Kogyo Shimbun and BS FUJI TV. 3 international journal papers indexed in SCIE and DBLP, 2 international conference papers (incl. 1 at CORE Rank A) have been already accepted to be published in 2018. 2 journal papers have been conditionally accepted and to be revised in 2018. In addition, we received many awards incl. Waseda University Presidential Teaching Award and Research Award for me; it is for the first time in Waseda University history to receive both awards by the same professor. I was honored to meet our Majesty Japanese Emperor and Empress. On 1st Jan 2017, I stated that we hoped to publish 7 journal papers (incl. 3+ international) and 20 international conference and workshop papers (3+ at CORE Rank A/A* and 10+ at Rank B). By considering papers approved to be published in 2018, we almost successfully achieved the goal of number of papers stated. Of course, we believe we can do better and more in 2018.

2018: Having the similar but extended clear vision stating that “reliable systems and software engineering with special focus on actionable practices supported by theory and data”, we will push forward with research on novel and actionable software and systems engineering methods and tools based on well-defined and validated theory to contribute to software and systems engineering industry and academia in collaboration with 10+ local and global partners. We continue to acquire large funds. We aim to publish impactful papers at better places: at least 7 journal papers (incl. 4+ international) and 20 international conference papers (3+ at CORE Rank A/A* and 10+ at Rank B/C). Many of our research achievements in the form of methods, practices and tools shall be continuously used and produce actual values through our local and global partners.

*Community and Professional Contributions*
2017: Thanks to many collaborators and supporters, we contributed to several major programming and engineering contests: ET Robocon 2017 Tokyo Regional Contest, IPSJ SamurAI Coding 2016-17 and 2017-18.
