Managing Software Quality discusses the methods involved in the integration of process, document and code indicators when constructing an evolving picture of quality. Throughout the book the authors describe experiences gained in a four-year on-site validation of the framework, making this book particularly useful for project or program managers, software managers and software engineers. In particular they provide guidance to those in software development and software support who are interested in establishing a measurement programme that includes software quality prediction and assessment. The authors share numerous valuable lessons learned during the research and applications of software quality management.

The Quality Special Interest Group of the British Computer Society presents the edited proceedings of their sixth International Conference on Software Quality Management (SQM'98) held in April 1998 in Amsterdam. The objective of this series of annual conferences is to promote international co-operation among those concerned with software quality and process improvement, by creating a greater understanding of software quality issues and by sharing current research and industrial experience. The papers cover a broad spectrum of practical experience and research. The topic areas include process improvement, maintaining a quality management system, quality metrics, human factors, project management issues, software tools and approaches to systems development. The organisers would like to thank Origin for their sponsorship of the proceedings. The editors are indebted to the members of the International Advisory Committee for their support and for refereeing the abstracts and the final papers, as well as to the authors who have contributed to the success of this conference.

""This is the single best book on software quality engineering and metrics that I've encountered."" --Capers Jones, from the Foreword"Metrics and Models in Software Quality Engineering, Second Edition," is the definitive book on this essential topic of software development. Comprehensive in scope with extensive industry examples, it shows how to measure software quality and use measurements to improve the software development process. Four major categories of quality metrics and models are addressed: quality management, software reliability and projection, complexity, and customer view. In addition, the book discusses the fundamentals of measurement theory, specific quality metrics and tools, and methods for applying metrics to the software development process.New chapters bring coverage of critical topics, including: In-process metrics for software testingMetrics for object-oriented software developmentAvailability metricsMethods for conducting in-process quality assessments and software project assessmentsDos and Don'ts of Software Process Improvement, by Patrick O'TooleUsing Function Point Metrics to Measure Software Process Improvement, by Capers Jones In addition to the excellent balance of theory, techniques, and examples, this book is highly instructive and practical, covering one of the most important topics in software development--quality engineering. 0201729156B08282002

This book embodies the belief that quality matters to the software developer and that the construction of an effective quality management system is one practical way to bring quality disciplines to bear on software development activities. ISO9001 with ISO9000-3 provides a specification for a QMS which addresses the software specific areas as well as those relevent to all industries. This book makes ISO9001 and ISO9000-3 accessible and relevant to software specialists while recognizing the very real deficiences of these documents. Two major issues of concern are addressed: measurement, which is the basic core of continuous improvement mechanisms; iterative and incremental techniques, which are becoming increasingly common. We can also see how these areas can be integrated into a development environment without threatening the quality culture of the organization.
This book compiles experiences from different industries and perspectives. Its goal is to give practical insights into high-tech software development projects of today.

This publication deals with two major software quality management challenges. The first one involves how to deliver a software product within a competitive time frame and with a satisfying quality to the customer. The second one concerns how to best deal with the growing complexity of software applications using Internet technology. Due to faster development cycles the quality of an application has to be monitored during operation, since the usage of the application and the technology around it might change from day-to-day. The book compiles experiences from different industries and perspectives. Its goal is to give practical insights into high-tech software development projects of today.

This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 5th Software Quality Days Conference (SWQD) held in Vienna, Austria, in January 2013. This professional symposium and conference offers a range of comprehensive and valuable opportunities for advanced professional training, new ideas, and networking with a series of keynote speeches, professional lectures, exhibits, and tutorials. The seven scientific full papers accepted for SWQD were each peer-reviewed by three or more reviewers and selected out of 18 high-quality submissions. Further, two keynotes and six short papers on promising research directions were also presented and included in order to spark discussions between researchers and practitioners. The papers are organized into topical sections on risk management; software and systems testing; test processes; model-based development; and process improvement and measurement.
