Software Engineering: Principles and Practices is a designed as a textbook for students of undergraduate and postgraduate degree courses in computer engineering, computer science, information technology, and computer applications.
It seeks to provide the reader with a holistic overview of the fundamental principles of software engineering thereby enabling them to acquire the skill-sets and confidence that is required to tackle this increasingly complicated field. Beginning with an introduction to the concepts of software engineering, the book provides a phase-wise approach to the various components of the software process life cycle. It provides a detailed description of the latest development process models and the basics of software requirements. The text explores various principles of system modeling, planning, measurement, design and implementation, and testing and delivery of software. Special attention is given to the maintenance of product quality and the ethical retirement of software.
The book provides a focused and to-the-point approach to the presentation of the concepts of software engineering, which both the students and teachers will find instructive and easy to understand. Provision of pertinent case studies facilitates understanding of the practical nature of software engineering.
Lays emphasis on automated processes for development and testing of software.
Discusses various Software Development Process Models of latest industrial practices including a section on Capability Maturity Model (CMM).
Provides exhaustive coverage of software project cost estimation models like Cost Constructive Model (COCOMO) and Delphi model.
Incorporates several case studies to bring out the practical implications of software engineering.
Includes end-chapter exercises with several review, multiple-choice questions and critical-thinking questions
Contains sample question papers and interview questions for cracking university examinations and job interviews
