Software Engineering, Volume 2, The Supporting Processes, 3rd Edition
September 2005, ©2005, Wiley-IEEE Computer Society Press
This Third Edition differs from the earlier editions in that it supports both the new 2004 version as well as the older 2001 version of the Software Engineering Body of Knowledge (SWEBOK), and that many of the newly authored papers were tailored after and support the corresponding chapter from SWEBOK 2004. In fact, some of the authors of the tailored papers also wrote the corresponding SWEBOK 2004 knowledge area.
The supporting processes covered in this book include documentation, configuration management, quality assurance, verification and validation, and review and audit processes. In addition, this tutorial covers the four processes of the organizational life cycle. These are used to establish and implement an underlying structure made up of associated life cycle processes and personnel that will continuously improve upon the structure and process of the project. These organizational processes are management, infrastructure, improvement, and training.
Each chapter in this volume starts by introducing the subject, supporting papers, and standards. The backbone for this publication is IEEE/EIA Standard 12207-1997, Standard for Information Technology-Software Life Cycle Processes.
