Specific Instructional Objectives
At the end of this lesson the student will be able to:

Differentiate a piece of program from a software product.
Scope and necessity of software engineering
Software engineering is an engineering approach for software development. Wecan alternatively view it as a systematic collection of past experience. Theexperience is arranged in the form of methodologies and guidelines. A smallprogram can be written without using software engineering principles. But if onewants to develop a large software product, then software engineering principlesare indispensable to achieve a good quality software cost effectively. Thesedefinitions can be elaborated with the help of a building construction analogy.Suppose you have a friend who asked you to build a small wall as shown in fig.1.1. You would be able to do that using your common sense. You will get buildingmaterials like bricks; cement etc. and you will then build the wall.
Fig. 1.1:
Small WallBut what would happen if the same friend asked you to build a large multistoriedbuilding as shown in fig. 1.2?
Fig. 1.2:
A Multistoried BuildingYou don't have a very good idea about building such a huge complex. It would bevery difficult to extend your idea about a small wall construction into constructinga large building. Even if you tried to build a large building, it would collapsebecause you would not have the requisite knowledge about the strength ofmaterials, testing, planning, architectural design, etc. Building a small wall andbuilding a large building are entirely different ball games. You can use yourintuition and still be successful in building a small wall, but building a large
