4:15 PM Breakout: The Marriage of CHAOS Research with Normalized Systems Theory. In this talk, Jim Johnson and Hans Mulder will show how the CHAOS Database and Normalized Systems Theory fit together. First we will show the components of the CHAOS Database, do a live demonstration, and show a single project assessment. We will provide an overview of the adjunction process. Then we will define and show the components of Normalized Systems. We then show a benchmark of Normalized Systems projects and compare them against the wider CHAOS Database.
