1. Tanner, April L. A CONCEPT MAPPING CASE DOMAIN MODELING APPROACH FOR DIGITAL FORENSIC INVESTIGATIONS.

Degree: PhD, Computer Science and Engineering, 2010, Mississippi State University

Over the decades, computer forensics has expanded from primarily examining computer evidence found on hard drives into the examination of digital devices with increasing storage capacity, to the identification of crimes and illegal activities involving the use of computers, to addressing standards and practices deficiencies, and to addressing the need to educate and train law enforcement, computer forensic technicians, and investigators. This dissertation presents the concept mapping case domain modeling approach to aid examiners/investigators in searching and identifying digital evidence and analyzing the case domain during the examination and analysis phase of the computer forensic investigation. The examination and analysis phases of a computer forensic process are two of the most important phases of the investigative process because the search for and identification of evidence data is crucial to a case; any data uncovered will help determine the guilt or innocence of a suspect. In addition, these phases can become very time consuming and cumbersome. Therefore, finding a method to reduce the amount of time spent searching and identifying potential evidence and analyzing the case domain would greatly enhance the efficiency of the computer forensic process. The hypothesis of this dissertation is that the concept mapping case domain modeling approach can serve as a method for organizing, examining, and analyzing digital forensic evidence and can enhance the quality of forensic examinations without increasing the time required to examine and analyze forensic evidence by more than 5%. Four experiments were conducted to evaluate the effectiveness of the concept mapping case domain modeling approach. Analysis of the experiments supports the hypothesis that the concept mapping case domain modeling approach can be used to organize, search, identify, and analyze digital evidence in an examination.

2. Douglas, Coretta Willis. Visual language representation for use case evolution and traceability.

Degree: PhD, Computer Sciences, 2008, Louisiana State University

The primary goal of this research is to assist non-technical stakeholders involved in requirements engineering with a comprehensible method for managing changing requirements within a specific domain. An important part of managing evolving requirements over time is to maintain a temporal ordering of the changes and to support traceability of the modifications. This research defines a semi-formal syntactical and semantic definition of such a method using a visual language, RE/TRAC (Requirements Evolution with Traceability), and a supporting formal semantic notation RE/TRAC-SEM. RE/TRAC-SEM is an ontological specification employing a combination of models, including verbal definitions, set theory and a string language specification RE/TRAC-CF. The language RE/TRAC-CF enables the separation of the syntactical description of the visual language from the semantic meaning of the model, permitting varying target representations and taking advantage of existing efficient parsing algorithms for context-free grammars. As an application of the RE/TRAC representation, this research depicts the hierarchical step-wise refinement of UML use case diagrams to demonstrate evolving system requirements. In the current arena of software development, where systems are described using platform independent models (PIMs) which emphasize the front-end design process, requirements and design documents, including the use cases, have become the primary artifacts of the system. Therefore the management of requirements’ evolution has become even more critical in the creation and maintenance of systems.

3. Lukman, Tomaž. Metodologija razvoja programske opreme za vodenje industrijskih procesov.

Degree: 2013, Univerza v Mariboru

Osrednja tema doktorske disertacije je programsko inženirstvo v domeni vodenja industrijskih procesov. Praksa razvoja programske opreme za vodenje industrijskih procesov je, gledano s stališča sodobnih pristopov k razvoju programske opreme, nezrela in ne izpolnjuje potreb trga po vedno obsežnejši in bolj kakovostni programski opremi, po skrajšanjih razvojnih ciklih ter po učinkovitem razvoju. Predlagani sodobni razvojni pristopi pa niso sprejeti s strani praktikov in gospodarstva, ker so nedodelani in ker ne rešujejo najpomembnejših težav domene vodenja, ki jih navaja literatura. V okviru doktorske disertacije smo razvili sodobno metodologijo za razvoj programske opreme za vodenje procesov. Razvoj je temeljil na sistematični uporabi nekaterih idej iz področij modelno usmerjenega inženirstva, domensko specifičnih modelirnih jezikov in programskih produktnih linij. Te ideje so bile uporabljene na tak način, da metodologija rešuje najpomembnejše težave domene vodenja procesov in nima slabosti obstoječih sodobnih razvojnih pristopov. Metodologija je sestavljena iz dveh nivojev: nivoja razvoja infrastrukture in nivoja razvoja aplikacij. Na prvem nivoju se sistematično razvija infrastruktura, ki je sestavljena iz definicije aplikacijskega razvojnega procesa in razvojnih smernic zanj, formalnega domensko specifičnega modelirnega jezika, definicije transformacij modelov in podpornih programskih orodij. Podporna programska orodja, ki omogočajo delno avtomatizacijo aplikacijskega razvoja v naši metodologiji, so sestavljena iz urejevalnika modelov, repozitorija modelov in generatorja kode. V okviru doktorske disertacije sta bila razvita tudi laboratorijski prototip in industrijski prototip podpornih orodij. Slednji odpravlja pomanjkljivosti laboratorijskega prototipa in je primeren za razvoj realne programske opreme za vodenje procesov. Na drugem nivoju razvoja se z uporabo infrastrukture izvaja modelno usmerjeni razvoj programske opreme za vodenje procesov. Z dobro definiranim aplikacijskim razvojnim procesom se izdela model programske opreme, iz katerega se na koncu avtomatsko generira koda za programirljive logične krmilnike. Evalvacija metodologije je bila izvedena na empirični način, in sicer s študijo primera, v katero so bili vključeni razvijalci iz slovenskega podjetja. V študiji primera je bilo prikazano, da je metodologija uporabna za razvoj programske opreme za vodenje realnih procesov. Pokazali smo tudi, da metodologija v primerjavi z razvojnim pristopom, ki se uporablja v praksi, izboljšuje učinkovitost razvoja programske opreme v smislu izboljšanja produktivnosti in kakovosti.

The main topic of this doctoral dissertation is software engineering in the domain of industrial process control. The state-of-the-practice of process control software engineering is immature and is unable to address the market demands for increasing the quality and scale of the software, shorter time-to-market periods, and efficient development. The proposed state-of-the-art development approaches have not been accepted by the…
