This new work from Watts Humphrey lays the foundation for a disciplined approach to software engineering. In his previous book, Humphrey developed methods for managing an organization's software process. These methods, now commonly practiced in industry, provide to programmers and managers specific steps they can take to evaluate and to improve their software development and software maintenance capabilities. In Humphrey's new book, he scales those methods down to a more personal level, helping software engineers working on relatively small-scale programs to develop the skills and the habits they will need later in their professional life to plan, track, and analyze large and complex software projects more carefully and more successfully.
Clear examples and samples drawn from industry enhance the practical focus of the book. Exercises in the form of projects give readers the opportunity to practice process management as they learn it, a comprehensive instructor's set includes notes on teaching the course, overhead masters, modifiable assignment kits in Word, and a statistical support package in the form of Excel spreadsheets for the analysis of individual and class data.
Watts S. Humphrey, author of Managing the Software Process, broadens his disciplined approach to software engineering. In this book, Humphrey helps software practitioners develop the skills and the habits they will need in order to plan, track, and analyze large and complex projects more carefully and successfully. Clear examples and sample forms of projects are included.
