Unfortunately, much of what has been written about software engineering comes from an academic perspective which does not always address the everyday concerns that software developers and managers face. With decreasing software budgets and increasing demands from users and senior management, technology directors need a complete guide to the subject of software engineering. The successor to the bestselling Software Engineering Productivity Handbook, this book fulfills that need. Written by an expert with over 25 years of practical experience in building systems, The Software Engineering Handbook covers the full spectrum of software engineering methodologies, techniques, and tools and provides details on how to reach the goals of quality management in a software-engineering environment. It includes a wide variety of information, from the guidelines for the Malcom Baldridge Quality Award to the IEEE measures for reliable software. 65 field-tested how-to chapters provide techniques, guidelines, and philosophies that will assist developers in implementing quality and productivity programs. The author provides readers with a wealth of information and advice in a multitude of areas including management of resources, methods, quality, and metrics. The book concludes with 19 appendices filled with guides, templates, forms, and examples that illustrate important software engineering techniques such as: software requirement specification, software design specification, and a complete test plan including use of automated estimation tools.Because automating test scripts is part of the testing effort, good judgment is required in selecting appropriate tests to automate. Not everything can or should be automated. For example, overly complex tests are not worth automating; manualanbsp;...
