TAILIEUCHUNG - Lecture Software engineering - Chapter 8: Design concepts

Software design encompasses the set of principles, concepts, and practices that lead to the development of a high-quality system or product. Design principles establish an overriding philosophy that guides you in the design work you must perform. Design concepts must be understood before the mechanics of design practice are applied, and design practice itself leads to the creation of various representations of the software that serve as a guide for the construction activity that follows. | Chapter 8 Design Concepts Slide Set to accompany Software Engineering: A Practitioner’s Approach, 7/e by Roger S.

Design Mitch Kapor, the creator of Lotus 1-2-3, presented a “software design manifesto” in Dr. Dobbs Journal. He said: Good software design should exhibit: Firmness: A program should not have any bugs that inhibit its function. Commodity: A program should be suitable for the purposes for which it was intended. Delight: The experience of using the program should be pleasurable one. Analysis Model -> Design Model Design and
