The final installment in this three-volume set is based on this maxim: "Before software can be designed its requirements must be well understood, and before the requirements can be expressed properly the domain of the application must be well understood." The book covers the process from the development of domain descriptions, through the derivation of requirements prescriptions from domain models, to the refinement of requirements into software architectures and component design.

Nowadays, there is software everywhere in our life. It controls cars, airplanes, factories, medical implants. Without software, banking, logistics and transportation, media, and even scientific research would not function in the accustomed way. Building and maintaining software is a knowledge-intensive endeavour and requires that specific experiences are handled successfully. However, neither knowledge nor experience can be collected, stored, and shipped like physical goods, instead these delicate resources require dedicated techniques. Knowledge and experience are often called company assets, yet this is only part of the truth: it is only software engineers and other creative employees who will effectively exploit an organisation's knowledge and experience. Kurt Schneider’s textbook is written for those who want to make better use of their own knowledge and experience – either personally or within their group or company. Everyone related to software development will benefit from his detailed explanations and case studies: project managers, software engineers, quality assurance responsibles, and knowledge managers. His presentation is based on years of both practical experience, with companies such as Boeing, Daimler, and Nokia, and research in renowned environments, such as the Fraunhofer Institute. Each chapter is self-contained, it clearly states its learning objectives, gives in-depth presentations, shows the techniques’ practical relevance in application scenarios, lists detailed references for further reading, and is finally completed by exercises that review the material presented and also challenge further, critical examinations. The overall result is a textbook that is equally suitable as a personal resource for self-directed learning and as the basis for a one-semester course on software engineering and knowledge management.
This book covers two applications of ontologies in software engineering and software technology: sharing knowledge of the problem domain and using a common terminology among all stakeholders; and filtering the knowledge when defining models and metamodels. By presenting the advanced use of ontologies in software research and software projects, this book is of benefit to software engineering researchers in both academia and industry.
This comprehensive and well-written book presents the fundamentals of object-oriented software engineering and discusses the recent technological developments in the field. It focuses on object-oriented software engineering in the context of an overall effort to present object-oriented concepts, techniques and models that can be applied in software estimation, analysis, design, testing and quality improvement. It applies unified modelling language notations to a series of examples with a real-life case study. The example-oriented approach followed in this book will help the readers in understanding and applying the concepts of object-oriented software engineering quickly and easily in various application domains. This book is designed for the undergraduate and postgraduate students of computer science and engineering, computer applications, and information technology. KEY FEATURES : Provides the foundation and important concepts of object-oriented paradigm. Presents traditional and object-oriented software development life cycle models with a special focus on Rational Unified Process model. Addresses important issues of improving software quality and measuring various object-oriented constructs using object-oriented metrics. Presents numerous diagrams to illustrate object-oriented software engineering models and concepts. Includes a large number of solved examples, chapter-end review questions and multiple choice questions along with their answers.
