English abstract:
Abstract-[Context] Empirical software engineering (EMSE) researchers
conduct systematic literature reviews (SLRs) to build
bodies of knowledge (BoKs). Unfortunately, valuable knowledge
collected in the SLR process is publicly available only to a limited
extent, which considerably slows down building BoKs incrementally.
[Objective] In this paper, we introduce the Systematic
Knowledge Engineering (SKE) process to support building up
BoKs from empirical studies efficiently. [Method] SKE is based on
the SLR process and on Knowledge Engineering (KE) practices to
provide a Knowledge Base (KB) with semantic technologies that
enable reusing intermediate data extraction results and querying
of empirical evidence. We evaluated SKE by building a software
inspection EMSE BoK KB from knowledge acquired by controlled
experiments. We elicited relevant queries from EMSE researchers
and systematically integrated information from 30 representative
research papers into the KB. [Results] The resulting KB was effective
in answering the queries, enabling knowledge reuse for analyses
beyond the results from the SLR process. [Conclusion] SKE
showed promising results in the software inspection context and
should be evaluated in other contexts for building EMSE BoKs
