The management and control of software projects is now seen as a critical factor in the successful development of efficient and cost-effective software products. The unprecedented demand for software has been met with a dramatically increasing number of products of varying size and complexity being made available. Thus the ability to effectively manage and control the software engineering lifecycle will ensure a competitve advantage in a highly competitive industry.
This book offers a systematic analysis of the critical factors involved in software engineering control and the means to achieve greater control of software projects. The central argument advocates an expansion of the current practice to include the control of development, maintenance, and re-use of software. The book not only describes what factors should be changed in the control of software engineering, it also provides guidelines for the enhancement of control factors.
A number of detailed `real-life' case studies of software engineering departments are included to illustrate the processes and principles involved.
This book will be of interest to managers, project leaders, analysts, and programmers involved with medium to large scale software engineering projects. Additionally, higher management and consultant-level software engineers will be able to keep up-to-date on the latest research on controlling software projects.
Many approaches have been proposed to enhance software productivity and reliability. These approaches typically fall into three categories: the engineering approach, the formal approach, and the knowledge-based approach. The optimal gain in software productivity cannot be obtained if one relies on only one of these approaches. Thus, the integration of different approaches has also become a major area of research.
No approach can be said to be perfect if it fails to satisfy the following two criteria. Firstly, a good approach should support the full life cycle of software development. Secondly, a good approach should support the development of large-scale software for real use in many application domains. Such an approach can be referred to as a five-in-one approach.
The authors of this book have, for the past eight years, conducted research in knowledge-based software engineering, of which the final goal is to develop a paradigm for software engineering which not only integrates the three approaches mentioned above, but also fulfils the two criteria on which the five-in-one approach is based. Domain Modeling- Based Software Engineering: A Formal Approach explores the results of this research.
Domain Modeling-Based Software Engineering: A Formal Approach will be useful to researchers of knowledge-based software engineering, students and instructors of computer science, and software engineers who are working on large-scale projects of software development and want to use knowledge-based development methods in their work.
