Software Engineering. Methodological Foundations.

The textbook consists of a course of lectures covered methodological foundations of current software engineering that provides a life cycle (LC) of complex software facilities (SF). The textbook presents profiles of international standards for LC of software systems and complexes regulated models and processes of SF's project management in software engineering. A significant attention is paid to system analysis and feasibility study of large SF's projects. Several lectures are devoted to development of requirements, planning, structural and object-oriented design of SFs. Processes of resource management for SF's projects, defects, mistakes, and risks in a LC of complex software systems are considered. Standardized characteristics of SF's quality are presented, and methods for their choice in SF's projects are analyzed. Detailed description of methods and processes of verification, testing, and evaluation of software components' correctness as well as their integration, qualification testing and inspection of large software complexes is provided. The lectures consider details of processes of maintenance, monitoring, and configuration management in a LC of SF. The course is concluded by a discussion of methods and processes of documenting, quality assurance, and certification of SFs.

It's advisable to use the textbook in teaching postgraduate and PhD students, project managers to build complex software systems during the whole their life cycle (64 hours of lectures and 32 hours of seminars). The course is also oriented to customers, managers of large projects, analysts and leading specialists that provide all phases of LC of complex software facilities and systems with strong requirements for functional quality and limited resources for development.
