Structured to follow the software lifecycle, this book gives advice on incorporating performance, operability, and other non-functional requirements into a project development lifecycle. Focus is on design, testing, and certification of applications for their target production environments. The first eight chapters focus on the planning through deployment phases. Later chapters examine common problems and project monitoring. A final chapter looks at impediments to good design that can limit non-functional requirements. The audience for the book includes anyone who has a lead architectural, design, or business role on a systems project, including those working on the project, project sponsors, or those directly benefiting from the results. Although the book is accessible to beginners and experts alike, it assumes some knowledge of the basic project development lifecycles and concepts of both functional and non-functional requirements. Ford is a consultant specializing in software systems for the financial services industry. The book is distributed in the US by Taylor & Francis.
