Relation Of Problem Solving To Software Engineering


Namespace: WIN_COM_API
One of my prefered books in problem solving is "How to solve it" by G. Polya.
In this book, it is mentioned that the four steps in solving a problem are:

1)Problem understanding.
2)Create a plan.
3)Execute the plan.
4)Verify the result.

It is frequently said that problem solving skills are useful in software development.The
reason of this, is that we can make a one to one correspondance between the problem solving
steps and the following software engineering steps.

1)Gathering requirements.
2)Architecture, design.
3)Coding.
4)Testing.
