1. Cepulis, Darius. Creating Socio-Technical Patches for Information Foraging: A Requirements Traceability Case Study.

Degree: MS, Engineering and Applied Science: Computer Science, 2018, University of Cincinnati

Work in information foraging theory presumes that software developers have a prede- fined patch of information (e.g., a Java class) within which they conduct a search task. However, not all tasks have easily delineated patches. Requirements traceability, where a developer must traverse a combination of technical artifacts and social structures, is one such task. We examine requirements socio-technical graphs to describe the key re- lationships that a patch should encode to assist in a requirements traceability task. We then present an algorithm, based on spreading activation, which extracts a relevant set of these relationships as a patch. We test this algorithm in requirements repositories of four open-source software projects. Our results show that applying this algorithm creates useful patches with reduced superfluous information. Advisors/Committee Members: Niu, Nan (Committee Chair).
