Volume 1 (of 2) of the Software Development Project How To Guide: Project document templates library is a practical, no-nonsense, cost-effective way to improve the conduct of software development projects. The book is written by an experienced Software Engineer who moved from the world of projects to academia, completing a PhD in software process in 2009. Earlier editions of this book have been successfully used since the 1990's by software development project managers and staff around the world. It has also been used by Universities in Australia to support their IT degrees. This book is essentially a toolkit that project managers and development organisations generally can use to good effect on projects. It can also serve as the basis for defining their own processes, their own software quality management system. Volume 1 has the following parts: A. SOFTWARE PROJECT PLAN B. SOFTWARE QUALITY PLAN C. CONFIGURATION MANAGEMENT PLAN D. REQUIREMENTS LIST E. STATEMENT OF USER REQUIREMENTS F. SOFTWARE REQUIREMENTS SPECIFICATION G. SOFTWARE DESIGN DESCRIPTIONS H. SOFTWARE QUALITY METRICS I. SOFTWARE TEST PLAN J. SOFTWARE REVIEWS a AUDITS K. SOFTWARE USER DOCUMENTATION A Proven Approach. The approach the author suggests when establishing software quality management systems is to first take the time to understand the organisation's established ways of undertaking projects, then 'graft' onto these existing processes appropriate material from this book. Not more bureaucracy, please! This approach recognises that any new quality management system that simply places a new layer of bureaucracy onto an already over-burdened staff is doomed to failure because staff will resist it. Both Sound and User-friendly. When that system is based on sound software engineering principles, as outlined by the IEEE software engineering standards, the system becomes both sound and user-friendly. Profitability through Higher Capability. Development organisation's that have defined their processes and who can demonstrate that they follow these processes will likely rate at level 3 or higher on both the CMMI (TM) and ISO 15504 SPICE. Achieving level 3 or higher can place development organisations more competitively in the tendering process, as well as making the organisation more profitable by reducing the time-to-market and re-work through increased efficiency.
