Abstract
Software process simulation can be a valuable support for process analysis and improvement provided the respective model development can focus on the issues at hand without spending effort on basically modeling everything from scratch. Rather, the modeling groundwork should readily be available as building blocks for (re)use. In the domain of software engineering, the work-test-rework cycle is one of the most important reoccurring patterns – at the level of a individual tasks as well as at the level of process phases or projects in general. Therefore, a generic reusable simulation component, which captures and represents this pattern, has been realized as part of the SimSWE library. This WorkTestRework component is designed such that it... (More)
Software process simulation can be a valuable support for process analysis and improvement provided the respective model development can focus on the issues at hand without spending effort on basically modeling everything from scratch.

In the domain of software engineering, the work-test-rework cycle is one of the most important reoccurring patterns – at the level of a individual tasks as well as at the level of process phases or projects in general. Therefore, a generic reusable simulation component, which captures and represents this pattern, has been realized as part of the SimSWE library. This WorkTestRework component is designed such that it provides comprehensive adaptability and flexibility to be used in different simulation scenarios and process contexts. This paper introduces the component and substantiates this claim by modeling typical, but very different process scenarios based on this component. (Less)
