This course provides an introduction to the study of software engineering by closely examining the software development process. Several popular software development process models are examined, along with topics on the software lifecycle, quality management, and software configuration management.
One of the most basic aspects of software engineering is an understanding of the software development process. This course on Software Process Management lays the foundation for a study in software engineering by examining several popular models for software development. The course begins with a study of the software lifecycle, and then introduces several of the most popular and widely-used models for software development, beginning with the most fundamental and working through to the more advanced. After covering these models, the course examines quality as it relates to the overall process of software development, and discusses the ways software configuration management can be used to improve quality.
