The IEEE Computer Society Professional & Educational Activities
Board (PEAB) SWEBOK Evolution Team seeks public review comments
for Version 4 of the Guide to the Software Engineering Body of
Knowledge (SWEBOK). This guide spells out components of the
software engineering discipline, promoting a consistent view of
software engineering worldwide.

The newest version of the SWEBOK Guide includes new topic areas,
updated topic descriptions, and the retirement of topics that are
no longer relevant. Especially, agile (and DevOps) have been
incorporated into many knowledge areas (KAs) since these models
have been widely accepted since the last publication of SWEBOK.

Three new knowledge areas (i.e., Software Architecture, Software
Operation, and Software Security) guide foundational knowledge
in software engineering. The new guide will better integrate the
related disciplines and rename and distribute some material into
different knowledge areas.

Software practitioners worldwide participate in the Guide's
development to ensure that it captures established traditional
practices recommended by many organizations. The SWEBOK Guide
uses a rigorous process that includes successive levels of review.
Each of the seventeen KAs will be published as they become available
for review.

*1st batch*

Drafts of six knowledge areas are now available for review:
* Software Requirements
* Software Testing
* Software Configuration Management
* Software Engineering Management
* Software Engineering Professional Practice
* Software Engineering Economics.

Please review the drafts, and input your comments in the following
form by Feb 13th, 2022.

In your comments, please indicate line numbers, topic area, section,
or subsection if you specifically refer to some parts of the target
knowledge area. The input data will be used for SWEBOK V4 editing
purposes only. If you have more than five comments, please use the
form multiple times. Please note that all chapters will be
finally edited and layout consistently and adequately.


Please let us know if you have any questions about this review
procedure at swebok-contact at list.waseda.jp
