About this eBook

PREFACE Even though software engineering is formalized into a discipline not quite fifty years ago, software applications today are pervasive and critically important in many areas of society. Although there are many good books about project management and software management, the focus of existing books seem to be either on detail mechanics and tools of project monitoring and task tracking, or about high level ideas and approaches on how organization s capabilities might be improved. This book focuses on the concepts as demanded by the syllabus of Uttar Pradesh Technical University U.P.T.U . This book blazes the way toward the next generation of software management practice. Many organizations still cling to the waterfall model because, even with its shortfalls, it provides the most fully elaborated management guidelines on how to proceed in a given software situation. The B.Tech students in U.P.T.U, Lucknow, are offered a course titled Software Project Management. In order that the students understand the subject thoroughly and do not miss any important concepts, this book has been developed with extreme care. The book is specifically aimed at the students and teachers of this course. The chapters are developed according to the sequence demanded by the Syllabus and also according to the project management life cycle. However, the students professors should note that due to logical groupings, some chapters contain portions from other areas within the syllabus as they fit better there. The salient features of book are 1. Coverage of all the topics in the syllabus of the course 2. Inclusion of many diagrams to facilitate quick understanding to the students 3. Use of simple language 4. Detailed coverage of all important topics. The book has been divided into thirteen chapters. Chapter 1 deals with the fundamentals of Software Project Management, including the various problems faced by project managers including project characteristics, constraints, benefits, life cycles etc., have been discussed. Chapter 2 discusses the various models used in the software development life cycle. Chapter 3 deals with the various issues and steps involved in software project planning. Chapters 4 and 5 deals with a very important stage of SPM i.e., Project Scheduling. It includes the detailed discussion on Work Breakdown Structure WBS , its types, characteristics etc., these chapters also deal with various Project Scheduling Techniques viz, Network Diagrams and Bar Charts. The next three Chapters 6, 7 and 8 are about the various measures taken for Project Monitoring and Control. These chapters include the fundamentals of Project Monitoring and Control. It also includes the various techniques used for Project Monitoring and Control viz., Earned Value Analysis EVA and Software Reviews are discussed in detail. Chapters 9 and 10 are about the Software Testing and Software Quality. This includes the detailed concepts of Software Testing and how the Software Quality is maintained and achieved including the formal approaches of Software Quality Assurance.
x Preface Chapter 11 deals with the Software Configuration Management activity. Various tasks and activities, change control, change request management, version control management are discussed as part of SCM activity. Chapter 12 deals with Software Project Risk Management. It includes what is risk, its types, sources, process of risk management are covered in details. Chapter 13 deals with CASE Tools, the important tool used for Software Project Management. Software project management could be very challenging at times, but can also be very much fun and rewarding. I anticipate that the book serves its intended purpose, and that the students benefit from it in the maximum possible manner and I hope this book can help future software project managers not only to be successful in their projects but also to enjoy the assignment as well.
