As the world becomes increasingly dependent on the use of computers, the need for quality software which can be produced at reasonable cost increases. This IFIP proceedings brings together the work of leading researchers and practitioners who are concerned with the efficient production of quality software. Software Quality and Productivity Theory, practice, education and training. Editors: Lee, M., Barta, Ben-Zion, Juliff, Peter (Eds.) Free Preview.   This "bible" of software metrics is designed for software engineers and developers, IS managers, and others charged with performance improvement and quality control. Includes information on software metrics in relation to object technology, client/server architecture, multimedia, software reusability, and reengineering and outsourcing.5/5(2).

In the context of software engineering, software quality refers to two related but distinct notions. Software functional quality reflects how well it complies with or conforms to a given design, based on functional requirements or specifications. That attribute can also be described as the fitness for purpose of a piece of software or how it compares to competitors in the marketplace as a. In this chapter from his book on software quality engineering, Stephen H. Kan discusses several metrics in each of three groups of software quality metrics: product quality, in-process quality, and maintenance quality. He also describes the key metrics used by several major software developers and discusses software metrics data collection. "Improve Quality, you automatically improve productivity." - DR. W EDWARDS DEMING. Focus on improving quality - not productivity (you will get productivity for free.) The Deming Chain Reaction. 20 years ago in his book "Out of the Crisis" Deming wrote about the chain reaction that focusing on quality triggers. It looks like this.   He was the founder and chairman of Software Productivity Research (SPR). He is the author of Estimating Software Costs, Second Edition and Applied Software Measurement. Mr. Jones was awarded a lifetime membership in the International Function Point User's Group (IFPUG), and is is a Distinguished Advisor to the Consortium of IT Software Quality Reviews:

Quality and productivity considerations have become increasingly important in software development. Many different tools and techniques have been developed to improve individual activities within the software process. Software development is a complex interacting system of activities that cannot be isolated from each other.   This item: Applied Software Measurement: Global Analysis of Productivity and Quality by Capers Jones Hardcover $ Only 1 left in stock - Reviews: 6. productivity improvements - people, product, policy, and process. 1.
