Project management reaches across many disciplines including, of course, embedded systems engineering. This book provides a solid base for enriching and streamlining the design to build lifecycle of a real-time embedded system project. Rob Oshana has 25-plus years of experience in the industry which he uses along with real-life case studies and industry examples to set forth a phased lifecycle approach. As the first book to present a complete process for project management of embedded systems it contains a wealth of information including tools, guidelines, and techniques applicable from processor selection to integration to deployment. Initial issues presented by a real-time application are discussed including stimuli/repsonse, mapping, and managing of requirements. Optimization, testing, debugging, and integration are all highlighted as part of the lifecycle management process. This book is a must-have for team leads and managers and engineers of all levels trying to understand how their piece of the puzzle fits into the big picture.
Features include: focused set of processes, tools, guidelines, and techniques provided for software project management; no other book covers the entire lifecycle of an embedded software product; and, filled with industry examples and real-world case studies.
