Abstract : Physical description: 1 VHS video; 1/2 in.; col.; mono.; playing time 82 mins.; standard playback sp. Traditional engineering disciplines have centuries of history--enough time to gain a perspective on how they emerge and mature. Software engineering has no such history. Drawing on the history of traditional engineering disciplines for examples and analogies, Mary Shaw offers insights into the path the software engineering profession must take if it is to become a legitimate engineering discipline. These insights can be used as guidance for improving the practice of software engineering.
