About the book

An Integrated Approach to Software Engineering emphasizes a case study approach whereby a project is developed through the course of the book, illustrating the different activities of software development. The sequence of chapters is essentially the same as the sequence of activities performed during a typical software project. The third edition updates this sequence for today’s standards and adds a valuable chapter on Software Architecture. All activities including quality assurance and control activities are described in each chapter as integral activities for that phase of development. Similarly, the author carefully introduces appropriate metrics for controlling and assessing the software process. The text is bolstered by numerous examples, chapter summaries, a helpful bibliography, and good index.
