|Ti 16-18||D122||Jürgen Münch||04.09.2012-09.10.2012|
The goal of this course is to gain knowledge and skills for designing, creating, analyzing, and applying software and system development processes. Various modeling techniques and notations engineered specifically for software processes are introduced during the course which will help to understand how processes are managed effectively.
Topics for the course:
- Process modeling goals and basic terminology
Prescriptive process models and standards
- Lifecycle models: Incremental Commitment Spiral Model, Unified Process, Cleanroom, etc.
- Engineering models: Scrum, Extreme Programming, Model-based Statistical Testing, etc.
- Standards: ISO/IEC 12207:2008, IEC 61508 (Spice), ISO 26262, IEC 62304
- Process descriptions
- Process deployment
Descriptive process modeling
- Creation of descriptive models
- Modeling approaches: MVM, Elicit
- Process elicitation
- Managing risks in descriptive process modeling
- Process modeling notations, metamodels, and tools: MVP-L, SPEM, ECMA/NIST, Eclipse Process Framework
- Empirical studies (for analyzing and understanding process effects)
- Software process simulation (for analyzing process behaviour)

The course consists of lectures, exercises and an exam. From a total of 60 points, a maximum of 54 points are available from the exam and a maximum of 6 points from the exercises. To pass the course, a total of 30 points are required. For the exercises, doing about 20 % of exercises yields 1 point while an exercise completion level of about 80 % or over is worth 6 points. The course assistant can be contacted for inquiries about the exercise sessions and other help.
There is one course exam on the following date and another retake exam where the exercise points are still valid from the course.
