About this product
- DescriptionNowadays, 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 t function in the accustomed way. Building and maintaining software is a kwledge-intensive endeavour and requires that specific experiences are handled successfully. However, neither kwledge r experience can be collected, stored, and shipped like physical goods, instead these delicate resources require dedicated techniques. Kwledge 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 kwledge and experience. Kurt Schneider's textbook is written for those who want to make better use of their own kwledge 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 kwledge managers. His presentation is based on years of both practical experience, with companies such as Boeing, Daimler, and Nokia, and research in rewned 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 kwledge management.
