Object-Oriented Project Management with UML
Almost all software projects are risky. The goal of every project manager is to somehow deal with the cost and schedule uncertainty while meeting your customer's needs. In Object-Oriented Project Management with UML, Murray Cantor describes an elegant, UML-based approach to managing object-oriented projects guaranteed to deliver high-quality software on time and within budget.
Drawing on his experience managing major software projects at IBM and TASC, Cantor supplies you with:
* Proven ways to reap the benefits of using UML tools to tame most project demons and deliver optimal OO systems
* Tips on integrating object-based techniques with traditional methods for project planning, risk management, scheduling, time-phased budgeting, and more
* Expert advice on how to handle all the important "people" issues that crop up during a development project
* Real-life war stories that let you see firsthand what worked and what didn't on several major development projects
* A full-length project example that walks you through every phase of a project told in terms of problems and solutions
Visit the companion Web site at www.wiley.com/compbooks/cantor to find:
* Sample project schedules, budgets, database templates for managing use cases, and a work-breakdown structure
* A spreadsheet workbook for managing incremental development
* A development tracking diagram
Prior to joining TASC, Dr. Cantor was a development manager at IBM, where he oversaw the development of high-end graphics and multimedia systems.
