Designed to introduce readers to the environment where software products are developed, this book elaborates the concept of software development as an engineering process. Software metrics (attributes) are defined and utilized to measure the properties of software products and manage their manufacturing. Software production is described in full detail, and many of the interim products of this process are described with enough specifications to permit the creation of a fine draft by the reader. The use of models for estimating size, cost, and reliability, scheduling, and risk assessment is encouraged, and explicit guidelines are provided for virtually any task a software engineer may be assigned.
