1. Explain about conventional software management. (16)
2. Explain about the evolution of software economics. (16)
3. Explain about the Improving software economics. (16)

1.What is meant by the term “Test Artifacts”?
• The test artifacts must be developed concurrently with the product from inception through deployment. Thus, testing is a full-life-cycle activity, not a late life-cycle activity.
• The test artifacts are communicated, engineered, and developed within the same artifact sets as the developed product.
• The test artifacts are implemented in programmable and repeatable formats
(as software programs).
• The test artifacts are documented in the same way that the product is documented.

2.Give the typical contents of an architectural baseline.
• Requirements: critical use cases, system-level quality objectives, and priority relationships among features and qualities
• Design: names, attributes, structures, behaviors, groupings, and relationships of significant classes and components
• Implementation: source
