History 1

History 1

  • The “software crisis”, recognised C1969. - threatened the progress of the computer industry

  • People-time was and still is relatively expensive, machine-time is now very cheap.

  • Programming was and still is very time intensive.

  • Products need support - probably more than ever

  • Software is complex; imagine creating a car with no drawings, specifications or planning.

  • Software “lives” – it somewhat “erodes” with age – contexts, details, standards and usage change

The future

The future

  • SE still as relevant today as it was in 1970

  • Tools have changed and will continue to do so

  • CASE tools have had limited success - specialised tools tend to be used for each stage

    • Modelling, Design, Testing, Optimisation etc.

    • UML is interesting as it is universal

  • New sets of challenges appeared in the latter part of the 1990’s - web development – we will look at this later on in the module when we cover JSP

  • Requirements capture as important as ever for the success of a project….this has not changed in being still the area most prone to getting it wrong

  • Still evidence of projects failing however…..why? <discuss>
