The Road Map to Software Engineering: A Standards-Based Guide organizes relevant IEEE software and systems standards using two frameworks: the SWEBOK Guide's topical knowledge areas and the widely used IEEE/EIA 12207 standard. This useful guide is endorsed and recommended by the Software and Systems Engineering Standards Committee of the IEEE Computer Society for both practitioners and students.
JAMES W. MOORE is a thirty-five-year veteran of software engineering and a fifteen-year veteran of software engineering standardization. With degrees from the University of North Carolina and Syracuse, he has worked in both the commercial and defense sectors for IBM and, now, The MITRE Corporation. Currently he serves as the Vice Presi...

Editorial Reviews

"Moore's book is exactly what his title says...consider it a valuable index and commentary— the Cliff Notes" for IEEE standards." ("CHOICE," June 2006) "For readers who want a book about standards and how they can be used in a software engineering context, this is the book to have." ("Software Quality Professional," June 2006) ..."an excellent source for [software engineering practitioners]...helping them to locate the standards pertinent to questions they face in real projects." ("Computing," May 22, 2006)
