In Chapter 7 we presented the experiments designed and performed to test our hypotheses, including the results obtained for each of the tested approaches. In this chapter we conclude the work presented in this study. Besides restating the problem we address and the motivations behind it, the most important part is related to the conclusions we have reached regarding the hypotheses and the expected results. The main contributions of our work are presented and we conclude by listing the limitations of our work and the future lines of research. A final remark regarding the application of our work in real world companies is also included.
