Software Engineering and Modeling

Requirements Engineering


Poor requirements gathering and modelling practices are all too common in enterprises, and they lead to poor effort estimates, costly requirements and design-related bugs, and more laborious testing and acceptance, which ultimately put project success at risk. CETIC’s expertise in Requirements Engineering and System Modelling covers the whole spectrum of methods and application contexts. Lightweight methods combining structured templates and UML-based notations provide a good level for SME and in non-critical application (...)

System Modelling


Poor modelling practices are all too common in enterprises, and they lead to poor effort estimates, costly requirements and design-related bugs, and more laborious testing and acceptance, which ultimately put project success at risk. CETIC’s expertise in System Modelling covers the whole spectrum of methods and application contexts. Model-based approaches help in automating specific development steps and provide greater design assurance. They also support business decision-making and process optimisation, especially in the medical and logistics (...)

Software Development Sizing


Many projects fail because their development effort has been incorrectly sized. This has a major impact on the project’s organisation and schedule. The risk of failure is even greater in the outsourcing market : for the customer, who expects a high-quality product having the required functionalities to be delivered on time ; and for the supplier, who must satisfy customer needs while achieving a reasonable profit margin.Retour ligne automatique CETIC’s expertise in this area is founded on COSMIC (ISO/IEC 19761), a widely used method for estimating software functional size. The COSMIC (...)

Knowledge Management


Intellectual capital is particularly vital in the context of software development. To be competitive, being able to capitalize on its assets is important. But knowledge management tools and technologies are often inaccessible to SMEs due to their high cost (license and resources required for their implementation). CETIC has developed a specific expertise in knowledge management IT covering most appropriate techniques suitable for SMEs.
