The student shall be able to:

    ? Describe the goals of software engineering (from class discussion).

    ? Define and describe the stages or workflows of the waterfall model: Requirements, Analysis, Design, Implementation, Test

    ? Define iteration and describe the stages of an iteration.

    ? Define the four classes of iterations: Inception, Elaboration, Construction, and Transition.

Introduction 2

    Software Development Process Models

Waterfall Model has the following stages or workflows:

Requirements: Capture what the system shall do

    ? Reach agreement between the customer (or stakeholder) and development team

    ? Define the requirements in stakeholder language: include text and Use Case Models.

Analysis: Structure the requirements into a logical system

    ? Define the problem (or logic) in structured UML (or other) notation

Design: Applying a physical architecture to the logic system

    ? Apply computer science techniques (s/w packages, algorithms, data structures) to the logical design

Implementation: Code the software

    ? May include Unit Test to verify proper module construction

Test: Verify that the software executes as required

    ? May include Integration Test, Acceptance Test, Alpha & Beta Test, Regression Test, System Test.

    ? System Test: Entire system is tested. Thorough test.

    ? Regression Test: Re-testing existing features.

    ? Acceptance Test: Client is present at testing

    ? Alpha Test: Same as acceptance test. Customer agrees that product works as

    specified, in dry run.

    ? Beta Test: In actual environment.

Introduction 4

    Waterfall Model Detailed Stages

    Project Initiation Process: Define the Project

    ? Project Charter: Management defines the goals and limits of project ? Establish project environment: project standards, communication infrastructure, reporting procedure, development methodology

Concept Exploration Process: Conduct Feasibility Study

System Allocation Process: Allocate requirements to hardware, software

Requirements Process: Produce complete Requirements Specification

    ? Build prototype and test with customer

    ? Define interface requirements and prioritize all requirements

    Design Process: Represent s/w system functions in a form that may be transformed into one or more executable programs.

    ? Define objects, classes, attributes, operations ? Define database, interfaces, algorithms

Implementation: Code, Unit Test & Integration Test

    ? Unit Test: verify each unit meets its specification. ? Integration Test: Parts are put together and tested.

Verification & Validation: Perform System and Acceptance Tests

    Installation Process: Distributed and install software in an operational environment

Operation & Support: Operate and maintain the system

    ? Corrective maintenance: correct errors not discovered previously ? Perfective maintenance: enhancing system services ? Adaptive maintenance: evolve s/w as h/w and related s/w packages evolve. ? Preventive maintenance: clean up legacy code.

Waterfall Model Advantages: Easy to schedule and manage.

    ? Produces relevant documentation

    Waterfall Model Disadvantages: Need requirements defined in beginning of project. ? Projects rarely follow the sequential flow.

    ? The customer does not state all requirements explicitly. ? Project is not complete until all phases are completed. ? Developers may be delayed unnecessarily.

Introduction 5

    Unified Software Development Process

    Iterative process developed by Jacobson, Booch and Rumbaugh in 1999.


    ? A large project may be divided into increments. Each increment includes all five

    workflows. These increments are called iterations.

    ? Iterations are useful to limit complexity, receive feedback on previous releases, and

    provide management insight into progress and risks.

    ? Each iteration is normally 2-6 weeks in length (although very large projects may have

    longer durations).

    ? Each iteration produces a Baseline, which is the set of work products produced during

    the iteration. (A Baseline may include a software release and documentation.)

Iterations can be classified as:

    ? Inception: Determines the requirements of the product (e.g. prototyping)

    ? Elaboration: Selects an architecture.

    ? Construction: Establishes the basic product.

    ? Transition: Prepares application for release (including test).

     Classifications of Iterations Phases: Inception Elaboration Construction Transition Requirements Analysis Design Implementation Test

Specifies the following Analysis and Design models:

    ? Use-case model: Describes how product is to be used.

    ? Analysis model: Describes the basic classes for the application.

    ? Design model: Describes the relationships between classes and objects.

    ? Deployment model: Allocates software to computers.

    ? Implementation model: Describes how the code is organized.

    ? Test model: Consists of test components, test procedures, and test cases.

Introduction 6

    Model Driven Architecture (MDA)

UML Designs translated automatically into code using the following stages:

    ? Computer-Independent Model (CIM): Describes the requirements in an

    implementation-nonspecific way.

    ? Platform-Independent Model (PIM): A high-level design lacks platform specifics.

    ? Platform-Specific Model (PSM): Sufficient platform information is provided (database,

    programming language, data structures) to generate code

    ? Code: Currently 70-90% of code can be generated using MDA.
