  • * System software
  • * Application software
  • * Engineering/Scientific software
  • * Embedded software

5. What are the challenges in software?

  • * Copying with legacy systems.
  • * Heterogeneity challenge
  • * Delivery times challenge.

6. Define software process.

Software process is defined as the structured set of activities that are required to develop the software system.

7. What are the fundamental activities of a software process?

  • * Specification
  • * Design and implementation
  • * Validation

  • * Software Configuration Management.
  • * Work product preparation and production.
  • * Reusability management.
  • * Measurement.

9. What are the merits of incremental model?

  • i) The incremental model can be adopted when there is less number of people involved in the project.
  • ii) Technical risks can be managed with each increment.
  • iii) For a very small time span, at least core product can be delivered to the customer.

10. List the task regions in the Spiral model.

  • * Customer communication – it is suggested to establish customer communication.
  • * Planning – All planning activities are carried out
  • * Risk analysis – The tasks required to calculate technical and management risks.
  • * Engineering – tasks required to build one or more representations of applications
  • * Construct and release – tasks required to construct, test, install the applications
  • * Customer evaluation – tasks are performed and implemented at installation stage based on the customer evaluation.
