Software Management, Seventh Edition
Software Management provides software managers at all levels of the organization with the information they need to know to develop their software engineering management strategies for now and the future. The book provides insight into management tools and techniques that work in practice. It also provides sufficient instructional materials to serve as a text for a course in software management.
This new edition achieves a balance between theory and practical experience. Reifer systematically addresses the skills, knowledge, and abilities that software managers, at any level of experience, need to have to practice their profession effectively.
This book contains original articles by leaders in the software management field written specifically for this tutorial, as well as a collection of applicable reprints. About forty percent of the material in this edition has been produced specifically for the tutorial. Software Safety and Reliability
This original text introduces the concepts, techniques, and approaches used to achieve and assess software safety and reliability. Debra Herrmann presents a cross-section of current safety and reliability standards that cross multiple industrial sectors while focusing on the additional required activities to achieve software safety and reliability. In organizing this text, the she has three objectives. The first is to raise the reader's awareness on the importance of software safety and reliability and on its role in mission critical systems by presenting many illustrative, ever day examples. The second objective is to provide practical information about the current methods used to achieve and assess software safety and reliability. The final objective is to improve the understanding and practice of software safety and reliability by consolidating the latest research so that it can be compared and analyzed for the future. Software Reuse
This book provides specific instructions for implementing reuse within the context of the IEEE Software Reuse Process Standard 1517 as well as the IEEE/EIA Standard 12207 - Standard for Information Technology - Software Life Cycle Processes. This new guide aids the reader in interpreting the meaning of the standard, implementing the standard, and applying the standard. Like IEEE Std. 1517, this book is written for both managers and technical personnel involved in acquiring, supplying, or developing software applications and systems or reusable assets. Software Change Impact Analysis
The book identifies key impact analysis definitions and themes and illustrates those themes through a collection of representative papers. It includes reports on software source code dependency analysis and software traceability analysis and proposes how results from both areas can more effectively support impact analysis in software engineering repositories. The papers provide fundamental information of enduring value, illustrate the important themes, and equip you with a solid understanding for tackling impact analysis problems.
