About the book

Quality is a complex and multifaceted concept that can be described from different perspectives depending on the context peculiarities and the stakeholders. Though measuring quality is not a new theme, asking a developer to measure the quality of a product may generally sound like an unknown or even a new aspect to the software development activities. In this book, an attempt has been made to describe various pertinent aspects of software quality from different points of view. The book has been planned and designed for a one-semester course on ‘software quality assurance’ as a follow up course on software engineering.

Key Features

  • Quality Assurance Embedding: Concepts of software quality assurance modeled as an phase-embedded activity rather than treating them as separate and post development activity. Learning by Objectives: Chapters start with a set of objectives, to which a prospective should be targeting to achieve. Each chapter ends with three types of review questions, objective, short answer, and descriptive. List of key terms referring to abstract concepts, which may be used for better and crisp communication. Solution Manual in electronic form available for qualified teachers on demand. Instructor’s Manual includes PowerPoint slides, brief notes on teaching and list of projects with descriptions. Each chapter ends with a list of key references for the concepts in the chapter. Useful websites appended to each chapter for quick reference
