1. Boucher, Quentin. Engineering Configuration Graphical User Interfaces from Variability Models.

Degree: 2014, DIAL (Belgium)

In the past, companies produced large amounts of products through mass production lines. Advantages of such an approach are reduced production costs and time-to-market. While it is (still) appropriate for some goods like food or household items, customer preferences evolve to customised products. In a more and more competitive environment, product customisation is taken to the extreme by companies in order to gain market share. Companies provide customisation tools, more commonly called product configurators, to assist their staff and customers in deciding upon the characteristics of the product to be delivered. Our experience reveals that some existing configurators are implemented in an ad-hoc fashion. This is especially cumbersome when numerous and non-trivial constraints have to be dealt with. For instance, we have observed in two industrial cases that relationships between configuration options are hard-coded and mixed with GUI code. As constraints are scattered in the source code, severe maintenance issues occur. In this thesis, we propose a pragmatic and model-driven way to generate configuration GUIs. We rely on feature models to represent and reason about the configuration options and their complex relationships. Once feature models have been elaborated, there is still a need to produce a GUI, including the integration with underlying reasoning mechanisms to control and update the GUI elements. We present a model-view-presenter architecture to design configurators, which separates concerns between a feature model (configuration option modelling), its associated solver (automated reasoning support) and the presentation of the GUI. To fill the gap between feature models and configuration GUIs, the various constructs of the feature model formalism are rendered as GUI elements through model transformations. Those transformations can be parametrised through beautification and view languages to derive specific configuration GUIs. A prototype generating HTML code is proposed.

Par le passé, les entreprises produisaient de grandes quantités de biens grâce à la production de masse, une telle approche permettant de réduire les coûts et temps de production. Bien que cette stratégie soit toujours adaptée dans certains cas (alimentation, produits ménagers), les utilisateurs ont maintenant une préférence pour les produits personnalisés. Dans un marché de plus en plus compétitif, cette personnalisation est poussée à l'extrême par les entreprises afin de gagner des parts de marché. Ces entreprises mettent des outils appelés "configurateurs" à disposition des clients et de leur personnel afin de les guider dans le choix des options du produit final. L'expérience nous a montré que les configurateurs existants sont implémentés de manière ponctuelle. Ceux-ci sont d'autant plus compliqués à mettre en place et maintenir qu'il y a des contraintes non-triviales à gérer. Par exemple, nous avons observé dans deux études de cas industrielles que les dépendances entre deux options de configuration se trouvaient dans le code de…

2. Ramdoyal, Ravi. Reverse Engineering User-Drawn Form-Based Interfaces for Interactive Database Conceptual Analysis.

Degree: 2010, DIAL (Belgium)

The first step of most database design methodologies consists in eliciting part of the user requirements from various sources such as user interviews and corporate documents. These requirements are formalised into a conceptual schema of the application domain, that has proved difficult to validate, especially since the graphical representations of data models have shown understandability limitations from the end-users standpoint. On the other hand, electronic forms seem to be more natural and intuitive to express data requirements for laymen. Besides, the necessity to associate end-users of a future system with its specification and development steps has long been advocated. In this doctoral research, we consequently explore the possible reverse engineering of user-drawn form-based interfaces to perform an interactive database conceptual analysis, and subsequently present the tool-supported RAINBOW approach resulting from this investigation. This user-oriented approach relies on the adaptation and integration of principles and techniques coming from various fields of study, ranging from Database Forward and Reverse Engineering to Prototyping and Participatory Design.

La première étape de la plupart des méthodologies de développement de bases de données se concentre notamment sur l'élicitation des besoins des utilisateurs, à partir de sources diverses telles que des interviews et de la documentation existante. Ces besoins sont formalisés par le biais d'un schéma conceptuel représentant le domaine d'application. En pratique, la validation de tels schémas s'avère difficile, étant donné que la compréhension de leur formalisme, même à l'aide de représentations graphiques, est loin d'être triviale. Parallèlement, il apparait que les formulaires électroniques semblent plus naturels et intuitifs pour permettre l'expression de tels besoins par des non experts. Par ailleurs, l'implication des utilisateurs finaux dans la spécification et le développement d'un futur système fait désormais partie des bonnes pratiques de l'Ingénierie Logicielle. Dans cette recherche doctorale, nous explorons dès lors la possible rétro-ingénierie d'interfaces de type formulaire dessinées par des utilisateurs finaux, afin de permettre une analyse conceptuelle interactive. Le résultat de cette investigation est l'établissement de l'approche RAINBOW et de son support logiciel. Cette approche orientée utilisateur se base sur l'adaptation et l'intégration de principes et de techniques provenant de diverses disciplines, notamment l'Ingénierie et la Rétro-ingénierie des Bases de Données, le Prototypage et le Design Collaboratif.

3. Beirekdar, Abdo. A Methodology for Automating Guideline Review of Web Sites.

Degree: 2004, DIAL (Belgium)

This work consists in proposing a methodology to improve automated evaluation of the ergonomic quality of web sites (with special focus on usability and accessibility) by static analysis of HTML code of their pages using the evaluation technique called guideline review. This methodology will be articulated around: - A framework that defines a systematic and consistent way for structuring guidelines in order to enable their automatic evaluation; - A guideline definition language (GDL) able to express guideline information in a sufficiently rich manner to enable an evaluation engine to perform automated evaluation of any GDL-compliant guideline; - Tools to support the proposed methodology. The tools are (1) a structuring tool (editor) to enable the specification and manipulation of guidelines structures (structured following the framework and expressed in a GDL-compliant form) and (2) an evaluation tool which uses the guidelines to conduct the evaluation of Web sites.
