This course teaches the assessment of software design processes and artifacts used by the Air Force. Topics include specific types of architectural views, architectural frameworks such as DoDAF, service- oriented architecture (SOA) development, design diagrams, design quality characteristics, and appropriate measures. Students assess techniques to create and evaluate architecture and design artifacts, as well as the risks associated with moving to software construction. SWE 420 is one of five courses in the SPDP software development track, and is taught online by instructor-led distance learning. Students are highly encouraged to complete SWE 410 before enrolling in SWE 420. Students must successfully complete a series of course exercises in order to successfully complete the class. Upon completion of SWE 410, 420, 430, 440 and 450, the student earns an AFIT SPDP “Software Development” certificate.
