By David J. Anderson

This e-book is definitely approximately software program improvement administration, however it is usually a ebook approximately enterprise. Managers can not have enough money to debate those themes independently. This ebook is intended to put off the seat-of-the-pants instinct and tough approximations which have been a long way too standard in software program improvement administration. The becoming approval for agile tools has proven fit stability among strict approach and person flexibility may be completed. David Anderson takes it a step farther, and explains how the fit stability of agility may help companies turn into extra ecocnomic. the result's a publication that might let managers to foster groups that produce higher software program, much less expensively, on time, and with fewer defects.

JUnit in Action, 2nd edition

Whilst JUnit used to be first brought a decade in the past through Kent Beck and Erich Gamma, the Agile circulate was once in its infancy, "Test pushed improvement" used to be unknown, and unit trying out used to be simply beginning to movement into the common developer's vocabulary. at the present time, such a lot builders recognize some great benefits of unit trying out and depend upon the more and more refined instruments now on hand.

Similarly, let CH = 1(0) denote the failure (survival) of the hardware. ), by the convexity rule. Bayes' Law is useful for addressing questions pertaining to the cause of failure of the computer system. For example, we may be interested in knowing the probability that software failure was the cause of failure of the computer system, if the system experiences failure. ) But P(c = 1 1 Cs = 1) = 1, since the computer system is a series system, and P(C = 1 1 Cs = 0) = P(CH = 1), since the computer system can only fail if there is either a hardware or a software failure (or both).

4. The four codes are to be used in a fault-tolerant system, and we are required to assess the credibility (reliability) of the system. A fault-tolerant system will produce a response if three or more of its outputs agree with each other, and the response is a correct response if I:;=IXi ~ 3. Thus, we are required to assess P(I:;=IXi ~ 3 I H). 5, i = 1, .. ,4. Then, under the judgment of independence (of the XiS), and suppressing the Xl, X 2 , . . 5)4 . 5. 5. 3125; 1 the events Et=,Xi = 3 and Et=,Xi = 4 are mutually exclusive.

Now suppose that were we to know e, we would judge £ independent of 1t, so that for all 0, P(£ I O,1t) = P(£ I 0). 9) () suggesting that our uncertainty about £ can be expressed via two probability distributions, P(£ I 0) and P(O 11t). The distribution P(£ I 0) is called a probability model for £, and P(O 11t) the prior distribution of e. If £ denotes a lifelength, then P(£ I 0) is called afailure model [cf. Singpurwalla (1988a)], and if £ denotes the time to failure of a piece of software, then P(£ I 0) is called a software reliability model.
