Integrating Value and Utility Concepts Into a Value Decomposition Model for Value-Based Software Engineering
Source: Vienna University of Technology
Value-Based Software Engineering (VBSE) is an emerging stream of research that addresses the value considerations of software and extends the traditional scope of software engineering from technical issues to business-relevant decision problems. While the concept of value in VBSE relies on the well-established economic value concept, the exact definition for this key concept within VBSE domain is still not well defined or agreed upon. The authors argue the discourse on value can significantly benefit from drawing from research in management, particularly software business.
