1 1 CMPT 275 Software Engineering Course Information SUMMER 2014 Janice Regan,

2 2 Best Sources of Information  Extensive information about course content and expectations for successful course completion can be found  By attending lectures  By reading the textbook and other suggested readings  By referring to the information and resources listed on the CMPT 275 website at

3 Janice Regan, How is the course graded?  Midterm (October 22): 15%  Project: 50%  Final (December 9) : 35%  To receive a grade of C- or above you must have a passing grade in the course, and a passing exam grade.  A passing exam grade is defined as Midterm % * Final % * 0.35 > 0.250

4 Janice Regan, How is the project graded?  Deliverable 1 - Client meeting:4%  Deliverable 2 – Requirements v1:3%  Deliverable 3 - Client Requirements Review : 4%  Deliverable 4 – Requirements/Model: 5%  Deliverable 5 – User Manual: 4%  Deliverable 6 - Design: 8%  Deliverable 7 – Testing: 3%  Iteration Review 13%  Iteration Review 23%  Deliverable 8 – Final project submission: 5%  User Acceptance Test: 8%

5 Meetings outside of Class  You will be expected to have regular group meetings outside of class time  In addition to your own group meetings there are 5 additional meetings outside of class time during the term  Requirements Gathering 2 X 1hour  Iteration Reviews 2 X 25 minutes  Final User Acceptance Test 1 hour Janice Regan,

6 Iteration reviews  Will be held Wed. July 16 th, July 23 rd  Will be held during and after class on these days.  Each iteration review is minutes long  You will demonstrate the features promised for the iteration in your implementation plan Janice Regan,

7 7 Out of class client Meetings  The client meeting (May 15-16), the client requirement review meeting (June 4-6) and the user acceptance test (July 30 – Aug. 1) are also out of class meetings  All team members must attend these meeting  Any member missing one of these meeting will receive a grade of 0 for that meeting  These meetings will be scheduled early in the term (more later today). Find links to schedules for these meetings at

8 Scheduling out of class meetings  It is extremely difficult to schedule these meetings  To make it as simple as possible I will give you a list of possible times for each of the three 1 hour meetings  Each group must give me 4-5 selections of times (in order of preference) at which they can attend such meetings. Janice Regan,

9 9 What are deliverables  Each of the Deliverables is a series of tasks (an assignment)  Each group demonstrates their understanding of the software engineering methods learned in class by working through the tasks within the related deliverable  Different phases or stages of the project are parts of different deliverables

10 Janice Regan, Deliverable expectations  Detailed descriptions of each deliverable are already available on the course website  Due dates for each deliverable are also given on this page  Each detailed description includes a summary of the expected content and an indication of how marks will be distributed  Except under exceptional conditions all team members will receive the same grade

19 Janice Regan, Preparing for lectures  A course overview and approximate schedule is given at  Read the suggested readings for the lecture and the posted lecture notes before class.  Think of any questions that may help you to clarify previous material at the start of the class, or to clarify new material during class

20 Janice Regan, Readings and lecture notes

21 Janice Regan, Other important information  There are general expectations for the preparation of deliverables. These can be found at

22 Janice Regan, Academic Dishonesty  Any work submitted by your group must be the original work prepared by that group  Any information, code, etc. that is not original must have its source cited  Failure to follow these simple rules will result in penalties appropriate to the seriousness of the offence  SFU Academic Honesty policies can be found at

23 23 CMPT 275 Software Engineering Group selection for your term project Janice Regan,

24 Term project  Specifications will be provided  Development will be done using JAVA with Swing or C++ with QT  This course is about the engineering and design of software, much of the grade will be based on the design and development rather than just the operation of the final product. Janice Regan,

25 Groups  Your term project will be completed in groups of 7 students  You may choose your own groups.  If your group has less than 7 students I will assign additional students to your group  If necessary I reserve the right assign the students in your group to other groups Janice Regan,

26 Creating Groups  During the first lecture you will be asked to form groups of 7 students  Each of the newly formed groups will be asked to help schedule out of class meetings for the term Janice Regan,

27 Out of class 1-hr meetings  Requirements Gathering meeting  May  Requirements Review meeting  June 4-6  User acceptance test  July 30 – Aug. 1 Janice Regan,




31 Group Information  Please send the instructor an containing  Full names of all group members  For each of the schedules shown on the previous three slides provide at least four time slots you are available for meetings (in order of preference )  If there are not 4 times that all members of your team may be present, let me know how many people cannot make each of your later choices. Janice Regan,

32 How do I know?  I will post schedules for  the out of class 1 hour meetings (same slot for all 3 meetings for each group)  The 25 minute iteration review meetings  These schedules can be accessed from the deliverable schedule web page Janice Regan,
