Software is important because it is used by a great many people in companies and institutions. This book presents engineering methods for designing and building software. Based on the author’s experience as a software programmer and engineering in the defense and aerospace industries, the book explains how to ensure software is programmed and operates per requirements to be available for implementation and use. It also shows how to develop, operate, and maintain software engineering capabilities by instilling an engineering discipline to support programming, design, builds and delivery to customers. The book helps software engineers to:
Besides taking a technical view, the book discusses how software engineers have a moral and ethical responsibility to ensure that the software they design and program does not cause serious problems. Software engineers tend to be concerned with the technical elegance of their software products and tools. Customers tend to be concerned only with whether a software product meets their needs and is easy and ready to use. The book looks at these two sides of software development and the challenges they present for software engineering.
A critical understanding of software engineering empowers developers to choose the right methods for achieving effective results. Effective Methods for Software Engineering guides software programmers and developers to develop this critical understanding that is so crucial in today’s software-dependent society.
