Software Product Quality: Ensuring a Common Goal
Blekinge Institute of Technology, School of Engineering, Department of Systems and Software Engineering2009 (English)Conference paper (Refereed) Published
Software qualities are in many cases tacit and hard to measure. Thus, there is a potential risk that they get lower priority than deadlines, cost and functionality. Yet software qualities impact customers, proﬁts and even developer eﬃciency. This paper presents a method to evaluate the priority of software qualities in an industrial context. The method is applied in an exploratory case study, where the ISO 9126 model for software quality is combined with Theory-W to create a process for evaluating the alignment between success- critical stakeholder groups in the area of software product quality. The results of the case study using this tool is then presented and discussed. It is shown that the method provides valuable information about software qualities.
