A Handbook of Software and Systems Engineering: Empirical Observations, Laws, and Theories
Computers are the most pervasive tools of modern society. Their development relies on advanced methods of software and systems engineering. Based on repeated and consistent observations, key lessons of these fields can now be formulated into rules or even laws, providing initial building blocks towards a theoretical foundation that is essential for further research, for teaching and for the practice of software development.This book guides students toward the best practice to use when implementing software engineering techniques. It identifies and discusses the rules and laws of developing software. Largely independent of technologies, these rules and laws form the basis for principles underlying software and systems engineering. The book is structured around the software development life cycle, which begins with requirements definition and continues by covering maintenance and withdrawal. This is the first book in the Fraunhofer IESE series in Software Engineering.
