Encyclopedia of Software Engineering Three-Volume Set (Print) (Hardback)Phillip A. Laplante (editor)
- We can order this
Software engineering requires specialized knowledge of a broad spectrum of topics, including the construction of software and the platforms, applications, and environments in which the software operates as well as an understanding of the people who build and use the software.
Offering an authoritative perspective, the two volumes of the Encyclopedia of Software Engineering cover the entire multidisciplinary scope of this important field. More than 200 expert contributors and reviewers from industry and academia across 21 countries provide easy-to-read entries that cover software requirements, design, construction, testing, maintenance, configuration management, quality control, and software engineering management tools and methods.
Editor Phillip A. Laplante uses the most universally recognized definition of the areas of relevance to software engineering, the Software Engineering Body of Knowledge (SWEBOK ®), as a template for organizing the material. Also available in an electronic format, this encyclopedia supplies software engineering students, IT professionals, researchers, managers, and scholars with unrivaled coverage of the topics that encompass this ever-changing field.

This reference resource covers various topics related to the development of software, the environments in which software operates, and how humans interact with these environments. ... Articles in this set offer an overview of broad topics, including economics, human-centered computing, and the IEEE Computer Society. Some of those broad topics are divided into subtopics, with an article dedicated to each subtopic. ... The very well-written articles, which vary in length, include an abstract, introduction, summary, and references. ...Unlike many multivolume reference sets, this resource provides easy access via an index at the back of each volume. ... this encyclopedia will be useful for undergraduate and graduate students in the software engineering, computer science, and information science fields. Libraries should give strong consideration to the electronic version, which offers features such as citation tracking and linked references. Summing Up: Recommended. Lower-level undergraduates through researchers/faculty.
