OBJECTIVE:
To be aware of
•    Different life cycle models
•    Requirement dictation process
•    Analysis modeling and specification
•    Architectural and detailed design methods
•    Implementation and testing strategies
•    Verification and validation techniques
•    Project planning and management
•    Use of CASE tools 

UNIT I        SOFTWARE PROCESS                            9

Introduction –S/W Engineering Paradigm  – life cycle models (water fall, incremental, spiral, WINWIN spiral, evolutionary, prototyping, object oriented) - system engineering – computer based system  – verification – validation – life cycle process – development process –system engineering hierarchy.  

UNIT II     SOFTWARE REQUIREMENTS                        9
Functional and non-functional - user – system –requirement engineering process – feasibility studies – requirements – elicitation – validation and management – software prototyping – prototyping in the software process – rapid prototyping techniques – user interface prototyping -S/W document. Analysis and modeling – data, functional and behavioral models – structured analysis and data dictionary.


UNIT III     DESIGN CONCEPTS AND PRINCIPLES                9

Design process and concepts – modular design – design heuristic – design model and document. Architectural design – software architecture – data design – architectural design – transform and transaction mapping – user interface design – user interface design principles. Real time systems - Real time software design – system design – real time executives – data acquisition system - monitoring and control system.
