Software Engineering, Volume 1, The Development Process, 3rd Edition
November 2005, ©2005, Wiley-IEEE Computer Society Press
Both volumes consist of original papers written expressly for the two volumes, as well as authoritative papers from the IEEE archival journals, along with papers from other highly regarded sources. The papers and introductions of each chapter provide an orientation to the key concepts and activities described in the new 2004 version as well as the older 2001 version of the Software Engineering Body of Knowledge (SWEBOK), with many of the key papers having been written by the authors of the corresponding chapters of the SWEBOK.
Software Engineering is further anchored in the concepts of IEEE/EIA 12207.0-1997 Standard for Information Technology--Software Life Cycle Processes, which provides a framework for all primary and supporting processes, activities, and tasks associated with software development. As the only self-help guide and tutorial based on IEEE/EIA 12207.0--1997, this is an essential reference for software engineers, programmers, and project managers. This volume can also form part of an upper-division undergraduate or graduate-level engineering course.
Each chapter in this volume consists of an introduction to the chapter's subject area and an orientation to the relevant areas of the SWEBOK, followed by the supporting articles and, where applicable, the specific IEEE software engineering standard. By emphasizing the IEEE software engineering standards, the SWEBOK, and the contributions of key authors, the two volumes provide a comprehensive orientation to the landscape of software engineering as practiced today.
