Software Engineering Process

Based on what you have learned so far…

  • What is your current development process?

  • What can you say about it?

  • What is good/bad about it?

SE-280Dr. Mark L. Hornick


If you are given a requirements specification for a medium sized program could you state in advance

If you are given a requirements specification for a medium-sized program, could you state in advance . . .

. . . how long it would take you to write the program?

. . . how many defects you would inject during its development?

. . . how many defects will remain when it is completed?

SE-280Dr. Mark L. Hornick


Why do we need a process

Why do we need a Process?

Many organizations today cannot meet commitments with repeatability

  • Project A completes without any problems

  • Project B is a disaster

    • Late

    • Incomplete

    • Not tested

      Too many times, the result is

    • Cancelled projects

    • Management over-reaction

Software engineering process

Data from PSP training courses usually show similar results for practicing software engineers and MSOE SE students.

SEI: 810 engineers

MSOE: 30 sophomore students

Software engineering process

Testing time is a major cost in commercial software development; PSP course data shows a general reduction in test time.

Software engineering process

Even with additional PSP planning and quality activities, overall productivity remains nearly constant.

Software engineering process

You can improve your own performance as a software engineer using disciplined methods, but it does take some effort.
