Subject fundamentals
Integration of different domains, linking skills and knowledge developed in the contexts of software project management, software process quality management and advanced programming techniques is the effective engine able to enhance learning outcomes delivered in this course.
Catalyst is the "product", that in the industrial domain tends to be strongly characterized in terms of functionalities realized through specific software components.
Expected learning outcomes
Students learn how to use IT technologies and methodologies in various domains, addressing improvement and enlargement of the set of products of manufacturing, counselling and software development enterprises. Students acquire and exercise specific competences working in enterprises directly, putting in place actions to reduce cost and time to market of products and services. Students work also on planning and implementation of new products and services.
Prerequisites / Assumed knowledge
Course content, require adequate competence on "databases", "advanced programming Java/C++/Visual Basic', quality and project management principles.
This course deals with relevant issues concerning product life cycle, taking also into account the impact that it expresses on firms and organizations. In particular the following topics are developed in details:
- Technologies to support product development process
- Systems for Product Lifecycle Management (PLM)
- Process control and improvement
For the 'software' technologies production area:
- Software product development
- Formal specifications and methodologies
- Software engineering process management
- Identification of specific case studies proposed by selected enterprises
- Project plan development concerning a product/service (case-study related)
- Cost analysis and definition of cost-benefits scenarios
- Methodologies: IDEF0; UML; BPMN; Formal Methods for Specification development
Delivery modes
Students apply requirements specification methodologies and product development solutions using specific CASE products to follow the whole life cycle.
In the context of specific projects undertaken as real case studies, students are organized into project teams developing feasibility studies on the basis of requirements detection promoted by themselves.

Assessment and grading criteria
Written exams aim to assess the following skills:
- Use of domain language
- Use of methodological rigor
- Ability to interpret/formalize requirements
- Ability to foresee/formalize appropriate solutions according to sampled requirements
- Readiness in developing solutions
- Ability to troubleshoot and propensity to develop the team
Theoretical components highlight issues related to "knowledge", practical components promote "know how" and "being able" is developed in lab activities.
