Software, Engineering, and Software Engineering

To define a software we need some historical context. The term software engineering (see Box 1, Box 2, and Box 3) was not coined until 1968, 18 years after the mid-point of the twentieth century, and one year before a human walked on the moon.

Introduction to Software Engineering
Introduction to Software Engineering

Software engineering is not computer science nor is it merely rendering an idea into an abstract computer programming language. First coined in 1968, software development is the youngest recognized branch of engineering: "The phrase 'software engineering' was deliberately

Steps in Developing a Risk Management Plan
Steps in Developing a Risk Management Plan

Developing a risk management plan is just a matter of following the following five steps. By beginning with the previously defined 12 risk categories, the analyst ranks and sorts the risks into a manageable set. The plan then is a direct result of the risk identification, categorization, and prioritization processes.

Risk Categories
Risk Categories

The project risk management plan models 12 categories of potential risk to any specific project: 1. Mission and goals. Any project accepted must fit within the organization's mission and goals. Projects accepted that do not fit within the organization create tensions that affect all projects. For instance, suppose an organization exists whose mission is to develop software for

Project Risk and the SEI

The Carnegie Mellon University's Software Engineering Institute developed a software risk model based on the Shewhart-Deming cycle. The model provides information and feedback, internal and external to the project, on the risk activities, current risks, and emerging risks. Figure

Risk Management Models
Risk Management Models

A number of models of risk management, readily usable by project managers, have been identified by the Project Management and Software Engineering Institutes and through the groundbreaking software engineering work of Barry Boehm.

What Is Risk Management
What Is Risk Management

Risk management is about understanding the internal and external project influences that can cause project failure. Once the project plan is built, a risk analysis should be carried out. The result of the initial risk analysis is a risk plan that should be reviewed frequently and adjusted

Determining Project Risks
Determining Project Risks

Software risk management is the formal process in which risk factors are systematically identified, assessed, and mitigated. The determination of the risk in a project, either due to external or internal causes, is a major part of project management. The PMBOK defines

Evaluating the Project SRS
Evaluating the Project SRS

Throughout the SRS building process, the project manager must always be aware of the quality attributes of the SRS: correctness, unambiguousness, completeness, and consistency, ranked for importance and/or stability, verifiability, modifiability, and traceability. These
