Introduction to Software Quality: Undergraduate Topics in Computer Science

Autor Gerard O’Regan
en Limba Engleză Paperback – 6 iun 2014
This textbook describes the approaches used by software engineers to build quality into their software. The fundamental principles of software quality management and software process im­provement are discussed in detail, with a particular focus on the CMMI framework. Features: includes review questions at the end of each chapter; covers both theory and practice, and provides guidance on applying the theory in an industrial environment; examines all aspects of the software development process, including project planning and tracking, software lifecycles, software inspections and testing, configuration management, and software quality assurance; provides detailed coverage of software metrics and problem solving; describes SCAMPI appraisals and how they form part of the continuous improvement cycle; presents an introduction to formal methods and the Z specification language; discusses UML, which is used to describe the architecture of the system; reviews the history of the field of software quality.

Descriere

In order to maintain strong levels customer satisfaction and loyalty, software developers face considerable pressure to meet expectations for high-quality software products that are consistently delivered on time.
Introduction to Software Quality describes the approaches used by software engineers to build quality into their software. The fundamental principles of software quality management and software process im­provement are discussed in detail, with a particular focus on the capability maturity model integration (CMMI) framework.
Topics and features: includes review questions at the end of each chapter; covers both theory and practice, in addition to providing guidance on applying the theory in an industrial environment; examines all aspects of the software development process, including project planning and tracking, software lifecycles, software inspections and testing, configuration management, and software quality assurance; provides detailed coverage of software metrics and problem solving; describes SCAMPI appraisals and how they form part of the continuous improvement cycle; presents an introduction to formal methods and the Z specification language, which are important in the safety critical field; discusses UML, which is used to describe the architecture of the system; reviews the history of the field of software quality, highlighting the pioneers who made key contributions to this area.
This clearly written and easy-to-follow textbook will be invaluable to students of computer science who wish to learn how to build high-quality and reliable software on time and on budget. Software engineers, quality professionals and software managers in industry will also find the book to be a useful tool for self-study.

Recenzii

From the book reviews:
“This book is true to its title: a comprehensive introduction to software quality aimed primarily at undergraduate students. … the breadth and the appropriateness of the topics covered make this book a welcome addition both to a university library bookshelf and to personal libraries. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Students of all levels, researchers/faculty, and professionals/practitioners.” (L. Benedicenti, Choice, Vol. 52 (6), February, 2015)
“If you are looking for a good, compact overview of software quality, this book is for you. … The book covers many research areas and tools in 20 chapters over 350 densely packed pages. … this is a good reference book for students and practitioners in software research, development, and installation management.” (Birol Aygün, Computing Reviews, September, 2014)
