parallel software design
Your rating: None

In section SE / Software Verification and Validation (p. 178, line 403 of the Ironman-v1.0), I see 'Testing parallel and distributed systems", which is good. However, I don't see any mention of designing such systems in the topics or objectives of section SE / Software Design (p. 174, lines 271-338), or any mention of how to construct such systems in the topics of objectives of section SE / Software Construction (p. 176, lines 343-388). This effectively lets software engineering instructors "off the hook" when it comes to addressing potential parallelism in software design / implementation. If it is important to know how to test such systems, it is also important to know how to design and construct them. A mention of this topic with a cross-reference to SF / Parallel (p. 183, lines 102-107) would seem appropriate.
