Software Engineering 10IS51 UNIT-1 OVERVIEW The economies of ALL developed nations are dependent on software. More and more systems are software controlled. Software engineering is concerned with theories, methods and tools for professional software development. FAQs About software engineering: What is software? Software is set of Computer programs associated with documentation & configuration data that is needed to make these programs operate correctly. A software system consists of a number of programs, configuration files (used to set up programs), system documentation (describes the structure of the system) and user documentation (explains how to use system). Software products may be developed for a particular customer or may be developed for a general market. Software products may be • Generic - developed to be sold to a range of different customers • Bespoke (custom) - developed for a single customer according to their specification What is software engineering? Software engineering is an engineering discipline which is concerned with all aspects of software production. Software engineers should adopt a systematic and organized approach to their work and use appropriate tools and techniques depending on the problem to be solved, the development constraints and the resources available. What is the difference between software engineering and computer science? Computer science is concerned with theory and fundamentals; software engineering is concerned with the practicalities of developing and delivering useful software Computer science theories are currently insufficient to act as a complete underpinning for software engineering What is the difference between software engineering and system engineering? System engineering is concerned with all aspects of computer-based systems development including hardware, software and process engineering. Software engineering is part of this process System engineers are involved in system specification, architectural design, integration and deployment What is a software process? A set of activities whose goal is the development or evolution of software Generic activities in all software processes are: • Specification - what the system should do and its development constraints • Development - production of the software system
