This handbook offers the implementer of software systems a guide to 25 different techniques for the complete development process, from system definition through design and into production. The techniques are described against a common background of the traditional development path, its activities, and deliverable items.

This book will enable system developers and their managers to widen their knowledge of this process, and will also introduce students of computer science to the practical side of software development.
