Software Engineering
  • Software systems are complex
    • Impossible to understand by a single person
    • Many projects are never finished: "vaporware"
    • The problem is arbitrary complexity
  • 1968 Definition:
    • Software Engineering means the construction of quality software with a limited budget and a given deadline
  • Our definition:
    • Software Engineering means the construction of quality software with a limited budget and a given deadline in the context of constant change
  • Emphasis is on both, on software and on engineering
course format
Course format
  • A Single Semester Course
    • Lectures: Theoretical foundations and background
    • Project: Learn how to apply them in practice
    • Lectures and Project work are interleaved
  • A Single Project Course
    • Everybody is working on the same project
  • Cheating Rule for 15-413
    • You cheat if you do not acknowledge the contribution made by others.

stars subsystems
STARS Subsystems
  • Authoring subsystem: Provides the capability to author and annotate IETMS which can be viewed with a web-based display tool. Interfaces to existing commercial products ACS and AIMSS that provide part of the required functionality.
  • Work flow subsystem: Provides a review and quality control process for IETM documents submitted by authors. The subsystem also detect changes in IETM documents and notifies the author. The subsystem also notifies mechanics when work orders have been created for them.
  • Modeling subsystem: Allows authoring of a description of an F18 airplane with a CAD tool, providing different views, such as a wireframe view, that can be overlaid on the real airplane
stars subsystems15
STARS Subsystems
  • Augmented reality subsystem: Provides location information of the airplane with respect to the mobile mechanic performing the maintenance.
  • Inspection subsystem: provides the capability to do an inspection based on IETM documents. The mechanic adds an annotation ("virtual sticky") to the repair location, by pointing to a specific location at the airplane.
  • Repair subsystem: provides the capability to perform maintenance procedures described in a work order. Locates the stickies associated with a specific airplane, and to perform the maintenance procedure interactively by using voice input and output.
  • Notification subsystem: provides a publisher/subscriber mechanism for subscribes of documents and work orders.
subsystems and teams
Subsystems and Teams
  • STARS will be developed in a team-based approach
  • Each subsystem in the software architecture will be mapped on a team
  • You will be member of one or more teams
    • Development team (Authoring, Workflow, Modeling, Augmented reality, Inspection, Repair)
    • Crossfunctional team (Architecture)
  • You can give us your team preferences when your register for the project.
    • Deadline: Thursday, Aug 26, 6 pm
  • Team selection is done by project management and will be announced in class, Tuesday August 31.
