interpret them and the phenomena surrounding their creation and usage Software Process Model Algorithms for developing software A set of activities methods practices and transformations that people employ to develop and maintain software and the associated products Process A sequence of steps performed for a given purpose the execution of a process model The process integrates people tools and

Page 1 of 12 Software Engineering De nitions Fall 2008 Water Fall Model System Requirements The system concept is de ned customer and client requirements are captured hardware and software components de ned and mapped Software Requirements a formal complete precise consistent and unambiguous description of what each software component must do is prepared by the developer and reviewed by the customer software speci cation document a software project plan is produced at the end of this phase Design phase The speci cation is elaborated in two steps that de ne how the product will work Architectural Design breaks down the whole system into component parts modules and the interactions between them interfaces Detailed Design involves elaborating the design of individual components by specifying data structures and algorithms Code amp Unit Software module designs are translated to code and then unit tested Integration amp Test Software modules are integrated into larger functional aggregates subsystems and tested in the operational environment T he nal step tests the complete system acceptance testing or validation 7 customer agrees that the system meets the speci cation Installation amp Maintenance The completed system is installed in the operational environment and maintained error correction and enhancement for the remainder of the system lifetime Spiral Model A

from the client s and end user perspective Elaboration A phase of the Unified Software Process that produces a Software Requirements Specification giving a high level internal view of the system architecture Use Case A sequence of actions a proposed system performs to o er some results of value to a User Actor A system has many types of users Each type of user is defined by an Ltor Actors may be people or external systems Actors interact with the product via one or more Use Cases An actor role is defined by a particular set of use cases performed by that actor to accomplish a particular goal or objective Use Case Diagram A type of UML diagram that illustrates the flow of interactions between the given system and the actors that participate in a given use case Use Case ModelA model produced by the Unified Process that defines the system boundary external actors and interfaces and system functionality from the users perspective Analysis ModelA model produced by the Unified Process that defines the internal system architecture allocates functionality to system classes and objects and establishes a solution baseline Design Model A model produced by the Unified Process that defines a blueprint for implementation for system implementation an abstraction of the solution that maps I I with some implementation language Design Qualities Styles Concepts Functional Characterized by Functional decomposition use of procedural abstraction for information hiding no data encapsulation reusability only at the application level 7 no reusable modules Implemented in C Functional Characterized by Functional decomposition use of procedural abstraction for information hiding use of OO techniques such as data encapsulation and abstraction with incomplete information hiding reusability of the Vector ADT Implemented in C OO Characterized by Functional decomposition use of procedural abstraction for information hiding use of data encapsulation and abstraction with language enforced information hiding reusability of the Vector Class Implemented in C 00 Characterized by Object Oriented decomposition significant use of reusable classes and packages Page 3 of 12 Software Engineering De nitions Fall 2008 Abstraction A frame of mind and set of concepts that permit the designer to reason about the problem and its solution at some level of generalization that disregards irrelevant details 7 it organizes the problem and its solution into various strata of concepts entities and their logical relationships Procedural Abstraction A kind of abstraction that assigns a name perhaps with defined parameters to a well defined and reusable computational process or algorithm This allows the designer to reason in terms of inputs and results of the named computation without having to think about the details of how the computation will be accomplished or implemented Data Abstraction A kind of abstraction that assigns a name a new type to a collection of related data elements and a set of operations for manipulating those data This allows the designer to treat as one conceptual unit a data structure and the procedural abstractions that manipulate that structure without having to worry about the details of how the data structure and its operations will eventually be implemented A key technique in object oriented decomposition and design Module A separately named and addressable software unit that encapsulates and abstracts a set of related software capabilities and features It generally consists of two parts an interface 7 for access by similar software units and an implementation 7 that specifies how the capabilities and features of the interface are realized Information Hiding A kind of design property that exploits language mechanisms and encapsulation techniques to hide details about the representation of data structures and types for the purpose of making it increasingly dif cult if not impossible for clients of a data type or structure to directly access and manipulate the internal content or composition of that type or structure Architectural Design A type of design activity that focuses on the enumeration of all the relevant modules logical organizational units and components processing units their functionality and data processing responsibilities their inter dependencies connectivity andor communication relationships with other architectural units Data Design A type of design activity that focuses on enumerating all relevant information elements that must be handled by the system together with specifving the relationships that must be defined created and maintained among these elements Examples composition a I e aiiun 39 39 r 39 quot 39 generalization and multiplicity are relationships used in object oriented design methods Interface Design A type of design activity that focuses on the mechanism enabling two or more architectural units to exchange data with each other or interact in some way This activity must specifv the data content exchanged the direction of flow timing constraints interaction protocols and mechanism for communication eg hardware signal hardware registers shared variables data file database record or relation gui Page 4 of 12 Software Engineering De nitions Fall 2008 Component and Module Design A type of design activity that focuses on the internal data structures and algorithms required for a given architectural unit to satist all its interface functional and non functional requirements within a given operation context Object Oriented Development Concepts Object A kind of software module or model that abstracts something in the domain of a problem or its implementation re ecting the capabilities of a system to keep information about it interact with it or both an encapsulation of attri bute values and their exclusive services Class A collection of objects o ering a common set of services and possessing a common set of data attributes It de nes or characterizes a new data type in the problem or solution domain Messages A mechanism and information structure for transmitting both control and data between objects Boundary ClassesObjects Used during requirements analysis and specification to model interaction between the system and its actors This interaction often involves receiving and presenting information andor requests These modules collect and encapsulate requirements defining external system interfaces ifthese change only modules of this kind will need to be changed Entity ClassesObjects Used during requirements analysis and specification to model information that is long lived and often persistent They model information and behavior of some phenomenon or concept such as an individual a real life object or event Control ClassesObjects Used during requirements analysis and specification to model modules that monitor and otherwise manage or coordinate sequencing transactions and control of other objects and are often used to encapsulate a control thread related to a specific use cases They are used to encapsulate complex computations or business logic that cannot be logically associated with any other kind of analysis module UML Concepts Class Diagram A type of UML diagram used to express the static structure of an 00 software design in terms of its modular components and their relationships Collaboration DiagramA type of UML diagram used to express the dynamic interactions among objects and actors participating in a use case Sequence Diagram A type of UML diagram used to express the execution time flow of messages and method calls among objects at the detailed design level Activity Diagram A type of UML diagram used to express the control flow among processes and use cases at the system level or the flow of control of algorithmic steps in a method or procedure at the detailed design level Page 5 of 12 Software Engineering De nitions Fall 2008 Generalize Specialize Is A Relation A relationship between two classes in an object oriented design Class Diagram that states if B SpecializesA A Generalizes B every instance ofB is also an instance ofA Composition A Whole Part relation between objects or class instances It indicates Parts that are essential or required constituents of the Whole necessary to make the Whole function properly The Parts have no meaning or independent existence outside the context of the Whole AggregationA Whole Part relation between objects or class instances where the Whole represents a container or organizational unit holding the Parts The Parts can have meaning and can exit outside their relationship to the Whole Association A relationship between an Actor and a Use Case in a Use Case Diagram representing a bi directional interaction and flow of data In the context of a Class Diagram this relationship describes some type of interaction or dependency between two objects or class instances SpecializeGeneralize Relation A relationship between two use cases in a use case diagram that states ifB SpecializesA A Generalizes B B is a specific method for realizing A Includes Relation A relationship between two use cases that indicates one is a required sub step of the other Extends Relation A relationship between two use cases that indicates one is a functional extension of the other 7 defining an optional sub step of the other Uses Relation A relationship between two use cases that indicates one is a required sub step of the other where the sub step is shared by two or more major use cases It implies the includes relation but is unique in that the sub use case is factored out for reuse by other major use cases The following material is based on a CrossTalk article entitled Con guration Management Fundaments

for each build andor system release Test Evaluations Capture results of test cases declares whether or not test case was successful generates defect or anomaly reports for tracking Test Anomaly Reports Document abnormal or unexpected test outcomes or events Used to capture and track test anomalies during development Developer must ensure all anomalies have been satisfactorily addressed or removed before delivery customer signofj Fault Models Answer the question Why do the features called out by the testing technique warrant our e ort A fault model therefore identifies the relationships and components of the system under test that are most likely to have faults Conformance Directed Testing Seeks to establish conformance to requirements and specifications Employs a non specific fault mode 7 any fault that violates conformance is equal to any other in importance or significance Fault directed testing Seeks to reveal implementation faults of a particular kind or type It is motivated by the observation that conformance can be demonstrated for an implementation that contains faults Employs a specific fault mode 7 directs testing toward particular kinds of faults Test Organization amp StagesPfleeger 1 Module Component Unit Testing 7 testing the smallest software building blocks in a controlled environment to meet functional requirements 2 Integration Testing 7 testing component aggregates to ensure interface requirements are met and that inter module communication works according to design 3 Function Testing 7 testing system functionality use cases to insure it meets system

making sure the system runs in the target environment Software Process Improvement Framework Concepts Software Process Capability Decribes the range of expected results that can be achieved by following a software process Software Process Maturity Level The extent to which a speci c process is explicitly de ned managed measured controlled and e ective Five CMM Maturity Levels 1 Initial The software process is characterized by ad hoc and occasionally even chaotic Few processes are de ned and success depends on individual e ort and heroics Repeatable Basic project management processes are established to track cost schedule and functionality The necessary process discipline is in place to repeat earlier successes on projects with similar applications Defmed The software process for both management and engineering activities is documented standardized and integrated into a standard software process for the organization All projects use an approved tailored version of the organization s standard software process for developing and maintaining software Managed Detailed measures of the software process and product quality are collected Both the software process and products are quantitatively understood and controlled Optimizing Continuous process improvement is enabled by quantitative feedback from the process and from piloting innovative ideas and technologies N E 4 V39 Key Process Areas Except for level 1 each maturity level is decomposed into several key process areas that indicate where an organization should focus to improve its software process KPAs identifv the issues that must be addressed to achieve a desired maturity level If an organization is at level K 1 then it has addressed all of the KPAs at levels lt K Each KPA identi es a cluster of activities that when performed collectively achieve a set of goals considered important for enhancing process capability The KPAs may be considered to be the requirements for achieving a particular maturity

accomplishing organizational objectives Organizing Arranging the relationships among work units for the accomplishment of objectives and the granting of responsi bility and authority to obtain these objectives Staffing Selecting and training people for positions or roles in the organization Directing Creating an atmosphere and environment that will assist and motivate people to achieve desired end results Controlling Establishing measuring and evaluating performance of activities toward planned objectives A Mgmt Strategy The overall approach to a project that provides guidance for placin emphasis and using resources to achieve the project objectives A Mgmt Policy Directives that guide decision making and project activities Policies limit the freedom in making decisions but also allow some discretion A Mgmt Procedure Directives that specifv customary methods of handling activities guides to actions rather than guides to decision making Procedures detail the exact manner in which a project activity must be accomplished and allow very little discretion A Mgmt Rule Requirements for specific and definite actions to be taken or not taken with respect to particular project situations No discretion is allowed Functional Organization Personnel in each organizational unit perform the same function Systems Engineering Software Engineering Verificationamp Validation Software Quality Assurrance7 basically they have the same job descriptions although they may vary in experience and leadership roles When a work product is produced or reviewed by members of one organizational unit it is passed to some other organizational unit for further development or review There is no single project supervisor over the whole project although there is a general manager and there is typically a project coordinator andor customeruser liason Project Oriented Organization The organization is organized around projects 7 each project headed by a Project Manager that has the responsibility to hire discharge train and promote people within the project Each project has its own staff organized around similar personnel functional roles Matrix Organization There is a vertical Column or functional structure similar to the Functional Organization but there is a horizontal Row structure similar to the Project Organization overlayed on top of the functional structure Personnel in each functional unit are assigned to work on a given projecti some may not be assigned to any project pool resources Each project Row is managed by a Project Manager who has authority over work assignments but does not have authority to hire discharge train or promote personnel 7 this authority resides in the manager of each functional unit This structure is more e icient in its use of human resources but frequently results in management control conflicts Page 11 of 12 Software Engineering De nitions Fall 2008 Mazlow s Hierarchy of Human Needs This is a pyramid structure that characterizes the needs that motivate human behavior In general needs at lower levels of the pyramid must be met before needs at higher levels can be met The levels are from most basic or fundamental to most noble or
