Software development processes and the management of software projects. Software lifecycle processes and process models are studied, including universal software development models, models of software evolution, process management, and process assessment and improvement. Also studied are the management of teams and people, software size and cost estimation, project scheduling, and risk management. The use of industry standards is emphasized throughout.
Course in presentation of formal model-based methods of software development. Review of mathematical foundations for formal methods. Formal languages and techniques for specification and design, including specifying syntax using grammars, finite state machines, and Petri nets. Analysis and verification of specifications and designs. Use of assertions, invariants, and proofs. Automated program and design transformation
Principles and techniques for obtaining an architectural design from a system specification. Where appropriate, automated software design tools are used to demonstrate particular methodology. The relation of various design methods to the production of quality software that meets its specification, and the relation of design method to other life-cycle aspects. Design methods, design tools, the design process, and particular application domains for design techniques.
