D1.1Feedback management and monitoring approachesDeliverable D1.1 presents the evaluation results of relevant feedback management and monitoring approaches, as well as online sources for feedback.
Our studies reveal that researchers and practitioners have developed several tools and methods to support feedback management and monitoring. In total, we identified, analysed and discussed more than 100 approaches. We found that there is a lack of combined approaches, which consider both end-user feedback and monitoring information for decision-making in software projects. This highlights the need for the work planned to be done within SUPERSEDE.

D3.3DM processes v2Deliverable D3.3 is a joint deliverable of tasks T3.1 Building a catalogue of DM processes, and T3.2 Modelling DM processes. Both tasks were performed along three iterations, the last one ending at the time this deliverable is due, i.e. month M28.
The previous deliverable of T3.1 is D3.1 Requirements for methods and tools (M3). D3.1 was ded- icated to the analysis of the requirements for the whole SUPERSEDE tool-suite that were elicited from the three project UCs. The results of T3.1 described in D3.3 concern revised and additional require- ments for the SUPERSEDE DMGame tool at support of software evolution, which were derived from the experience of the UCs validation and from a specific usability evaluation activity performed during the second and beginning of third year of the SUPERSEDE project.
The previous deliverable of T3.2 is D3.2 DM processes, v1 (M11), which presented the analysis of decision-making processes in the three project UCs, considering both software evolution and dynamic adaptation. The results of T3.2 described in D3.3 concern revised models of decision-making processes that are enabled thanks to the DMGame tool and the decision-making techniques for dynamic adapta- tion, which were developed and integrated in the project tool-suite. Results from the evaluation activities performed in the parallel task T3.1 have been taken into account in T3.2, together with the result of a specific quasi-experiment aiming at evaluating the use of gamification in the collaborative requirements prioritisation process enabled by the DMGame.

D3.6Methods and techniques for runtime DM, v1This document is a technical report that accompanies the M18 software release of the SUPERSEDE DM support for dynamic adaptation and personalization framework. This framework computes adaptation actions aiming at recovering the supervised system back to its normal operation, upon the eventual detection of deviations on the system itself or of its influencing environment, during the supervision cycles of the MAPE-K control-loop. This framework not only provides DM suggestions for adapting a supervised external system, but also for reconfiguring the SUPERSEDE platform itself, concretely the monitoring and feedback- gathering frameworks.ATOSNovember 2016Download
D4.1Methods and tools to enact software evolution v1The objective of this deliverable is to determine the related works available for software release planning using optimization algorithms. With this objective in mind, this deliverable will be based on performing an academic literature review, a selection of a framework of optimization algorithms for the future implementation, and a market study to determine the available tools for release planning.
The second objective of D4.1 is the description of the architecture for the tool that will be produced as part of the T4.1. This architectural description will include precise description of the architectural decisions made (such as the selection of technologies), and architectural views including other components from the scientific WPs to show the feasibility of the scientific WPs integration.

D4.2Methods and tools to enact software evolution, v2This is the second deliverable of T4.1 which corresponds to the description of the first release of the proof of concept software implementation. In this deliverable we report on the advances and evolution of the architecture, and the decisions made related to the development process of the software evolution tool named as Replan. In this deliverable we will also provide technical information related to the deployment and installation requirements of this tool.UPCNovember 2016Download
D4.4Methods and tools to enact software adaptation and personalization v1This document provides a first specification (both functional and technical) of the Software Adaptation and Personalization Enactment framework (hereafter the Enactment framework). This framework collaborates with other Supersede frameworks in supporting run-time adaptation and personalization of software systems, driven altogether by the MAPE-K feedback loop.ATOSJanuary 2016Download
D4.5Methods and tools to enact software adaptation and personalization, v2This document is a technical report that accompanies the M18 software release of the SUPERSEDE Dynamic Adaptation and Personalization Enactment framework, named as DAPPLE. This framework manages the runtime dynamic adaptation and personalization enactment of adaptive systems, by applying adaptation actions suggested by the Decision Making, during supervision cycles of the MAPE-K control-loop. This report describes this software prototype, providing functional and technical (e.g. architecture) descriptions of the overall framework, its components and adopted baseline technologies. It also describes the structure of the source code and provides instructions to build, deploy, and manage the prototype, targeting developers who may be interested on extending (or customizing) its features, but also end-users aiming at applying it on the enactment of variability on their supervised adapted systems.ATOSNovember 2016Download
D4.7Feedback-gathering and monitoring reconfiguration techniques v1This deliverable is organised into two main parts. The first part (sec. 3), describes the results produced in T4.3, which includes: an analysis of the needs for feedback gathering reconfiguration, which is performed with the use of scenarios inspired from the three project’s use cases; definitions of feedback gathering method configuration and reconfiguration; and a description of an approach to support the design of a reconfigurable feedback gathering method, as well as of feedback gathering methods that can reconfigure autonomously at run-time. For this last aspect monitoring requirements are used.
The second part (sec. 4), describes the results produced in T4.4. It includes: an analysis of the needs for monitoring reconfiguration in SUPERSEDE; a set of definitions useful to describe the problem of monitoring reconfiguration; types of solutions as emerging from a state-of-the art analysis; and an early architecture.

D4.8Feedback-gathering and monitoring reconfiguration techniques, v2This deliverable corresponds to the implementation results at month 18 of SUPERSEDE project of tasks T4.3 (Feedback-gathering reconfiguration) and T4.4 (Monitoring reconfiguration). These tasks consist of enacting, in an automated manner, the reconfiguration of the SUPERSEDE tools for gathering feedback from the user and for monitoring data (e.g. changing the frequency in which data is collected, modifying the format in which the feedback is requested to the end-user, etc.). These reconfigurations may be required because of changes in requirements, changes in the context, adaptations or evolution of the system; and are triggered by the Decision Making Process (WP3) following the SUPERSEDE lifecycle loop. In this deliverable we describe the first release of the proof of concept platform that implements such a reconfiguration solution, named reconfiguration enactment tool. In particular we provide implementation and technical details as well as documentation to install and use the software, accompanied with the links for downloading it.UPCNovember 2016Download
D5.3Requirements and architecture for the integration frameworkSUPERSEDE offers a complete set of functionalities aimed at improving the feedback communication between end-users and application developers, and enabling the evolutionary and dynamic maintenance of these applications, based on collected user-feedback and runtime application data. This holistic approach is supported by a set of components mutually collaborating to enact the common SUPERSEDE processes. As the SUPERSEDE components do not work in isolation, they require an environment that enables them to: a) interact with the others in a coordinated manner, exchanging information, reacting to incoming events or producing them; b) interact with the end users, getting input from them, and presenting to them concrete information using a common user interface; c) interact with external services provided by third parties, including those provided by the SUPERSEDE use cases‘ platforms. This document provides the final public functional and technical specification of the SUPERSEDE platform that provides the functionality outlined above. The platform consists of the different SUPERSEDE components, embedded and integrated within the Integrated Framework (IF) and interfaced by the Front-End (FE), which is the facade between the components and the end-users. Concretely, this document focuses on the IF and FE, since the specifications for individual components will be delivered elsewhere by the responsible development teamsATOSJuly 2017Download
D5.5Tool Suite Implementation, v2This report provides a functional and technical description of the second version of the SUPERSEDE Tool Suite Implementation software. The tool suite has been created by integrating components released by work-packages WP1, WP2, WP3 and WP4 at M18 into a single system by means of two base frameworks, the Integration Framework (IF) and the Front-End (FE).DELTADecember 2016Download
