“Measuring Programming progress by lines of code is like measuring aircraft building progress by weight.” – Bill Gates
A software engineer or a developer designs and develops software or modules or programs for specific purposes of the users or the clients, so that they can get benefits what they want. Since the software is developed in order to fulfill various objectives of the users, it should have some defining features. Some of the features of a good software module or computer programs are mentioned herein.
It is appropriate to mention here that Software development is the computer programming, documenting, testing, and bug fixing involved in creating and maintaining applications and frameworks involved in asoftware release life cycle and resulting in a software product.
One of the most important characteristics of a good software module is its compatibility with required efficiency. It must be designed and developed in such a way as to provide the intended results accurately. Since the purpose of creating software or module is to facilitate the clients or the users in their related tasks, it is essential to ensure that the objective is being accomplished accordingly or not.
A software module is developed by a software engineer or a software developer who has acquired sound knowledge and experience about the related field. He designs and develops software to provide many options to help the users sufficiently. Besides, it is important for him to consider various aspects, such as, ensuring if it’s been created to suit the needs or if there are any more options to be added. Whether or not it’s designed and developed in such a way that it may enable the uses to use it conveniently and independently.
Besides, a software module is considered as more valuable if it is well-matched with requirement in addition to having the ability for more features to be added in case the need arises over a period of time. In this way, a software module is to be created with a futuristic motive as well.
A few more defining features of a software module that are of abiding importance are: its maintenance, efficiency, portability and the storage savings and being error free. While performing its tasks in an efficient manner, a good software module or a huge program that consists of various sub programs or routines, has many good features to make the whole process of producing the intended results easier by reducing time and efforts of the users to a greater extent.
