  • Chapter 1


    A software project has two main activity dimensions: engineering and project management. The engineering dimension deals with building the system and focuses on issues such as how to design, test, code, and so on. The project management dimension deals with properly planning and con- trolling the engineering activities to meet project goals for cost, schedule, and quality.

    SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT LIFE CYCLE MODELS Price 2.99  |  2.99 Rewards Points

    The software development life cycle is used to facilitate the development of a large software product in a systematic, well-defined and cost effective way.
  • Chapter 3

    SOFTWARE PROJECT PLANNING Price 2.99  |  2.99 Rewards Points

    Software project management begins with a set of activities that are collectively called project planning. Before the project can begin, the manager and the software team must estimate the work to be done, the resources that will be required, and the time that will elapse from start to finish.

    WORK BREAKDOWN STRUCTURE Price 2.99  |  2.99 Rewards Points

    The Work Breakdown Structure provides a common framework for the natural development of the overall planning and control of a contract and is the basis for dividing work through the process of Decomposition into definable increments from which the statement of work can be developed and technical, schedule, cost, and labor hour reporting can be established.

    PROJECT SCHEDULING AND ITS TECHNIQUES Price 2.99  |  2.99 Rewards Points

    Scheduling for software engineering projectÂ’s can be viewed by two different perspectives. In the first, an end date for release of a computer-based system has already been established. The soft- ware organization is constrained to distribute effort within the prescribed time frame.
  • Chapter 6

    PROJECT MONITORING AND CONTROL Price 2.99  |  2.99 Rewards Points

    Project monitoring and control is a key phase in the project management cycle. Properly executing this process will contribute significantly to successful project completion. It consists of all those processes which are performed to observe project execution so that potential problems can be identified in a timely manner and corrective actions can be taken, when necessary to control the execution of the project.

    EARNED VALUE ANALYSIS Price 2.99  |  2.99 Rewards Points

    Earned Value Management (EVM) technique is used to track the Progress and Status of a Project and Forecasts the likely future performance of the Project. It integrates the scope, schedule and cost of a project. This technique can be used to show past performance of the project, current performance of the project and predict the future performance of the project by use of statistical techniques.

    SOFTWARE REVIEWS Price 2.99  |  2.99 Rewards Points

    Software reviews are a “filter” for the software engineering process. That is, reviews are applied at various points during software development and serve to uncover errors and defects that can then be removed. Software reviews “purify” the software engineering activities that we have called analysis, design, and coding. “Software reviews means viewing your software again”.
  • Chapter 9

    SOFTWARE TESTING Price 2.99  |  2.99 Rewards Points

    Testing is a set of activities that can be planned in advance and conducted systematically. For this reason a template for software testing-a set of steps into which we can place specific test case design techniques and testing methods-should be defined for the software process.
  • Chapter 10

    SOFTWARE QUALITY Price 2.99  |  2.99 Rewards Points

    We examine the qualities that are pertinent to software products and software production processes. These qualities will become our goals in the practice of software engineering.

    SOFTWARE CONFIGURATION MANAGEMENT Price 2.99  |  2.99 Rewards Points

    Software configuration management deals with effectively tracking and controlling the configuration of a software product during its life cycle.
  • Chapter 12

    SOFTWARE RISK MANAGEMENT Price 2.99  |  2.99 Rewards Points

    Risk analysis and management are a series of steps that help a software team to understand and manage uncertainty. Many problems can plague a software project. A risk is a potential problem- it might happen, it might not. But, regardless of the outcome, itÂ’s a really good idea to identify it, assess its probability of occurrence, estimate its impact, and establish a contingency plan should the problem actually occur.

    COMPUTER AIDED SOFTWARE ENGINEERING Price 2.99  |  2.99 Rewards Points

    CASE stands for Computer Aided Software Engineering. “CASE is a tool which aids a software engineer to maintain & develop software”. The workshop for software engineering is called an Integrated Project Support Environment (IPSE) and the tool set that fills the workshop is called CASE.
