This course introduces concepts, techniques and tools for software risk management. The course examines various risks of software practice and evaluates them in terms of mathematical models (e.g.,probability theory). Students learn techniques for mitigating, avoiding, and handling risks throughout the software life cycle. The course depends on software metrics; we also look at reliability theory and its application to software risk management. Prerequisite: SW3460 or consent of the instructor.
