ICSE 2011: Dieter Rombach - Software Engineering Process Methodology
Prof. Dr. Dieter Rombach studied mathematics and computer science at the universities of Karlsruhe and Kaiserslautern. Since 1992, he has held the chair for Software Engineering at the University of Kaiserslautern, and since 1996, he has been Executive Director of the Fraunhofer Institute for Experimental Software Engineering in Kaiserslautern (FhG IESE). From 1984-1991, he was Professor of Computer Science at the University of Maryland, and from 1986-1991 he was Project Manager at NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center.
Prof. Rombach's main research topics can be found in the area of "Software Engineering", especially in methods for developing software with predictable quality, in quantitative methods for measuring and assessing software products and software processes, in languages and methods for developing and using explicit software process models, in process-based software development environments as well as in software reuse. As a consultant, he works for various U.S. American and European companies.[source]
Here, Wolfram Schulte interviews Dr. Rombach at ICSE 2011. You'll get a high level overview of Dr. Rombach's work in designing and implementing scalable strategies and methodologies for controlling complexity and adding reliability to software development projects of any size and complexity. This is a very interesting and important aspect of the software engineering discipline. Dr. Rombach also enjoys the challenges of managing complexity in an entirely unrelated context. Tune in to find out what this may be...
