Abstract

A measure of software quality W.D. Brandt & D.N. Wilson ^Concurrent Engineering Research Center, West Virginia University, 886 Chestnut Ridge Road, Morgantown, West Virginia 26506, USA ** School of Computing Sciences, University of Technology, Sydney, P.O. Box 123, Broadway, ABSTRACT This paper presents a software quality questionnaire developed by the Concurrent Engineering Research Center (CERC) at West Virginia University. The questionnaire is used by an independent testing group to measure the quality of software prototypes as a major input to determining whether or not prototypes should be made available to engineering users. The questions and relative weightings provide a useful insight into factors that influence software quality. INTRODUCTION Concurrent Engineering is a systematic approach to the integrated, concurrent design of products and their related processes, including manufacture and support.
