     Assignment Description

    Course Project Overview

    This course is comprised of a series of Individual Project assignments that will contribute to a Key Assignment submission at the end of the course. Each week, you will complete a part of a Software Engineering Research document. You will select an organization and apply your research to the analysis and selection of a Software Engineering methodology and practices that would be appropriate for the organization. You will also develop ways to improve the selected Software Engineering methodology and the associated practices.

    Additional information and the deliverables for each Individual Project will be provided in the assignment description for the project. This is the course key assignment that you will make contributions to each week.

    Project Selection:

    The first step will be to select an organization as the target for your Software Engineering Research. This organization will be used as the basis for each of the assignments throughout the course and should conform to the following guidelines:

    • Non-trivial: The selected organization should be large enough to allow reasonable exercise of the Software Engineering Research process.
    • Domain Knowledge: Student should be familiar with the organization to allow focus on the research tasks without significant time required for domain education.
    • Accessibility: Student should have good access to the people and other information related to the organization because this will be an important part of the research process.
    • Note: The selected organization may already have a Software Engineering methodology and practices in place and still be used as the basis for the projects in this course.

    Select an organization that fits these requirements and submit your proposal to your instructor before proceeding further with the assignments in the course. Approval should be sought within the first several days of the course. Your instructor will tell you how to submit this proposal and what notification will be given for project approval.


    For the assignments in this course you will be developing a Software Engineering Research document and helping a company select an appropriate Software Engineering methodology and practices for their software development efforts. Your first task in this process will be to select an organization to use as the basis of your projects. You will also create the shell document for the final project deliverable that you will be working on during each unit. As you proceed through each project phase, you will add content to each section of the final document to gradually complete the final project delivery. Appropriate research should be conducted to support the analysis in your document and assumptions may be made when necessary.

    The project deliverables are:

    • Submit organization proposal to instructor for approval
    • Software Engineering Research Document Shell
      • Use Microsoft Word
      • Title Page
        • Course number and name
        • Project name

        • Project Outline and Requirements
          • Brief description of the organization (can be hypothetical) where the research will be applied. Include a list of products and/or services provided by the company, company size, location(s), and other pertinent information.
          • Summary of the IT systems and major computer and data uses of the company that would be affected by the implementation of a Software Engineering methodology and practices.
          • Material can be taken from approved proposal submitted to instructor
          • Be sure this project is approved by the instructor
        • Software Engineering Practices
          • Research Software Engineering best practices and select a methodology suitable for the selected organization.
          • Provide a description of the methodology and associated practices.
          • Develop and document ways to improve the selected methodology and the associated practices.
    • Name the document yourname_SWE311_IP1.doc
    • Submit the document for grading
