Based on these trends two hypotheses are presented: 1. it is possible to define the quality requirements for any software by selecting one from a standard set of models (a model includes a profile of desired quality attributes) 2. based on readily identifiable characteristics, software types can be identified for which a particular model will be appropriate Some of the implications of these hypotheses are explor
