Software engineering may be defined as the systematic design and development of software products and the management of the software process. The general principles of software engineering are set forth in Part I, in which the author relates software engineering to the whole field of the system development process--system engineering, hardware engineering, software engineering, and system integration. Presented briefly are overviews of the major aspects of software engineering--design, development, and management.
