Empirical Study of an Improved Component Based Software Development Model using Expert Opinion Technique

By Asif Irshad Khan Md. Mottahir Alam Noor-ul-Qayyum Usman Ali Khan

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Jul. 2013

IT industry in the present market situation faces high demand for performance and burgeoning user expectations; with the pressure manifesting itself in three forms – Development Cost, Time-to-market and Product Quality. Researchers have proposed several techniques to effectively deal with these conflicting scenarios and draw optimized output. One of the relevant techniques in this context is Component Based Software Development (CBSD) with a targeted and discriminative approach influencing all phases of development. Although, CBSD proposes a multi-faceted approach in complex scenarios, its prime focus lies in “write once and reuse multiple times” methodology with either no or minor modifications. The model has been markedly successful in large enterprise applications with companies deriving benefits from shorter development time, increased productivity and better quality product. This research paper focuses and discusses Empirical Study of an Improved Component Based Software Development (ICBD) Model using Expert Opinion Technique which covers both component based software development as well as Component development phases. ICBD Model tries to overcome some of the issues in the contemporary CBD Models. A case study was conducted to investigate and evaluate our model by experienced professionals working in the IT industry. Results have shown that our improved model registers significant improvement over previous models suggested by other researchers.

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Sep. 2012

Education is one of the areas that are experiencing phenomenal changes as a result of the advancement and use of information technology. Mobile and e-learning are already facilitating the teaching and learning experience with the use of latest channels and technologies. Blended learning is a potential outcome of advanced technology based learning system. The charm of blended learning approach lies in the adaptation of technology aided learning methods in addition to the existing traditional based learning. With the introduction of technology, the overall learning as well as teaching experience is considerably enhanced by covering negative aspects of the traditional approach. In this paper a blended learning model for higher education where traditional classroom lectures are supported via e-learning.
