Taxonomies of software qualities have attempted to differentiate the roles of the various software qualities (Boehm[lj). As such they have not achieved a delineation useful for software quality assessment, either quantifiably or relatively. Typically software quality roles have been either as-built utility or evolvability. As-built utility centers around issues of reliability, measurability, and human/social factors. Evolvability centers around issues of understandability, testability, and modifiability. None of the issues associated with either as-built utility or evolvability are easy to differentiate in a manner that allows discussion of software quality in even a relative manner. We propose a software quality taxonomy which delineates softw
