Software quality: theory and management
The development of high-quality software is an issue of great and growing importance throughout the software industry. This book introduces software quality in a clear, accessible manner, bridging the gap between software engineering and software management. Software Quality is written in two principle parts. The first part describes the concept of quality and the way in which it can be applied to software, with descriptions of the techniques employed in software quality assurance. The second part shows how these techniques can be used and discusses the standards involved. It also includes a case study of a company's experience in the development of quality issues, from product failure through to the introduction of structured systems, design methods and consideration of standards accreditation. A final section looks forward to the future of the subject.
