Assessment and Control of Software Risks represents a cross-disciplinary effort which applies a format used in medical writing to software engineering. The book Control of Communicable Diseases in Man, published by the U.S. Public Health Service, was organized in alphabetical order, and listed all known communicable diseases starting with actinomycosis and ending with yellow fever. The format and idea of Control of Communicable Diseases in Man is the basis for this book. Obviously the contents for Assessment and Control of Software Risks are not identical to the former, since software engineering is not medicine. However, its structure is similar. This book assumes that readers are already familiar with the basic terminology of software, and have access to a reasonably capable source of books and journals. Although this book has a large glossary, the terms defined are primarily those which come up during assessment sessions and are troublesome or ambiguous.About the Author:
