Quality control measurements for GIS Data, Babour, Amal J., Mazen Sherif A., and El-Deen Mohamed Nour , (2007) Abstract

Geographic Information System (GIS) is one of the fastest growing technologies in the world. Its ability to analyze spatial data is impressive. Data is the backbone of GIS because its quality range affects the results of the application so one of the most important problems in GIS is how to choose the GIS (data), which suits the application requirements and user needs exactly and in the best way among set of data to avoid wrong outputs and any lose in time and money

A Survey on the State of the Art of Enterprise Resource Planning System (ERP), Hassanein, Ahmed Abass A., Mazen S. A., and Hassanein EE , CIIT, Volume 6, p.39-46, (2014) AbstractWebsite

Due to the complexity of the development process of Enterprise Resource Planning Systems (ERP) this survey will meticulously analyze them from different points of views. In the beginning, a brief introduction to the definition of ERP systems showing their main concepts their history and evolution. Then, ERP systems are examined in order to show their essential software development characteristics. In addition, different ERP categorizations from software development point of views are derived from the current research which examined more than seventy of the most popular ERP systems. Furthermore, an overview of the common ERP software architectures are presented. Consequently, the major critical success factors which are needed to be considered when planning to adopt ERP systems is presented. Finally, the trend to include business process concepts into ERP systems is discussed emphasizing those features which are mainly supported in the current ERP systems.

Towards to Specific Approach for Information Systems (IS) Projects Governance, Hamada, Mohamed A., Mazen Sherif A., and Hassanein Ehab E. , Fifth International Conference on Intelligent Computing and Information Systems, (2011) Abstract

IS projects comprise many challenges and difficulties at all
development phases, with high risks of such projects end in
failure. Failure rates for major IS projects appear to linger around
70%. IS project governance is a new born theory and a nascent
field of research. Previous researches in the topic of IS project
governance concentrated on high level project governance
(general perspective through view the project as one block), they
didn’t apply the projects governance in particular perspective
according to the project development’ phases and activities. Due
to the continuity of high percentages of IS projects failure,
specific governance approach for IS projects is a serious attempt
to enhance their success through addressing the projects’ failures
and defects. Wherever the specific governance approach
concentrates on all project’ phases and activates in details, project
feasibility study governance is introduced in this research as a
sample for applying the specific governance approach for IS
projects.

Integration Between Software Project Management and Change Management, Mazen, Sherif, Ezzat Ehab, and Afifi Amira Mohamed Gaber Rafaat , Giza, (2016) Abstract

Software projects deviate from their original plans due to changes that may happen during the software life cycle. Project managers depend on their experiences to estimate the effects of these changes on the duration and budget of their projects. Software projects should not deviate or crash with respect to the estimated deadline. Thus, any change should be estimated and studied before executing the plan.
In this thesis, we introduce a framework that integrates Software Project Management (SPM) and Software Change Management (SCM) to achieve the following objectives: First, when a change occurs, we go through the whole change management process before executing the plan. Second,monitoring the activities of the project by preparing and delivering managerial reports based on performance and improvements. When the Change Management Team (CMT) checks for the Change Request (CR), The CMT uses a sheet of rewards and punishments of the people responsible for each CR according to the completion date of the related CR (i.e. early CR means the responsible person will be rewarded; otherwise punished). Third,providing an accurate time variance to record any CRs finished earlier than planned which will result in revising the project plan or any delayed CRs that will derive management to take corrective actions to the project plan.Fourth,helping the management for better decision making in case of any budget deficit or surplus by using the cost variance to monitor the expenditures along the project plan. Fifth, increasing the prediction possibility of early project completion, which may result in revision of the operational processes that depend on the deadline of the project and notifying the higher level of management for further actions.
So,we will mainly focus on the project monitoring and controlling phase because it is one of the most important processes in developing any software project. It controls the operation of the project according to the project plan. In addition, it is one of the CMMI® process areas level 2.
