This chapter on “Software Design” emphasizes the role of modeling, prototyping, and simulation in software design. The chapter introduces the principles of software design, issues and challenges. Modeling techniques used in procedural and object oriented methodologies is presented along with the Unified Modeling Language (UML). The suitability of prototyping, as a design artifact and a simulation method is briefly discussed. Software processes such as Rapid Application Development (RAD), Rational Unified Process (RUP) and Agile methodologies which influence the design process have been discussed and recommended. The chapter then deals with Design Metrics for Quality Analysis, Software Risk Analysis and Threat Modeling for design of secure software. Finally, some of the recent research topics such as Model Driven Architecture (MDA), Model Driven Development (MDD), Meta Object Facility (MOF), and Model Driven Testing (MDT) have been covered.
