Software Engineering: Question Set – 17

What is CMM?

The SEI employs an evaluation that culminates in a grading scheme with five points in order to determine the present stage of process maturity that a company has reached. The compliance with a capability maturity model (CMM) that identifies key activities required at different degrees of process maturity is what the grading scheme evaluates in order to determine grades. The Software Engineering Institute (SEI) approach offers a method for measuring the overall efficiency of a company’s software engineering practices and identifies five stages of process maturity. These stages are defined as follows:

  • Level 1: Initial
  • Level 2: Repeatable
  • Level 3: Defined
  • Level 4: Managed
  • Level 5: Optimizing

Black box testing always focuses on which requirement of software?

Black box testing always focuses on the functional requirements of the software.

What is the cyclomatic complexity of a module that has 17 edges and 13 nodes?

The cyclomatic complexity of a module that has seventeen edges and thirteen nodes = E – N + 2

E = Number of edges, N = Number of nodes

Cyclometic complexity = 17 – 13 + 2 = 6

What is a Feasibility Study?

In the field of software engineering, a feasibility study is an investigation that evaluates the suitability of potential projects and systems. A feasibility study is a measurement of a software product that determines how the creation of the product might benefit an organisation from the perspective of a validity analysis or the point of view of practicality. Studies of feasibility are carried out for a variety of reasons, including the evaluation of the correctness of a software product in relation to its development and portability as well as the contribution of an organization’s projects and other such matters.

Software does not wear out in the traditional sense of the term, but the software does tend to deteriorate as it evolves, why?

The software does not wear out in the traditional sense of the term, but the software does tend to deteriorate as it evolves because Multiple change requests introduce errors in component interactions.

What are the three essential components of a software project plan?

  • Team structure,
  • Quality assurance plans
  • Cost estimation.

The testing of software against SRS is known as ….?

The testing of software against SRS is known as acceptance testing.

What does the term “computer software” mean?

Software for computers comes in a full bundle that contains not only the actual programme but also its documentation and a user guide that explains how to operate the software.

When you know programming, what is the need to learn software engineering concepts?

A person who is skilled at building a wall might not be as skilled at building a house from the ground up. In a similar vein, a person who is capable of writing programmes could not be familiar with other ideas associated with software engineering. Programmers are given direction by the concepts of software engineering on how to evaluate the needs of the end user, design algorithms before beginning the actual coding process, create programmes by coding, and test both the code and its documentation.
