Abstract

Software quality methodologies J. Moses School of Computing and Information Systems, University of Sunderland, Priestman Building, Green Terrace, Sunderland ABSTRACT This paper presents and justifies the view that the future of Software Engineering lies in the development of a software analysis and design methodology, including formal methods, which must enable prediction and measurement of quality factors in order to assure both quality of software and acceptance of formal methods. An approach to the development of such a methodology is also recommended. INTRODUCTION During the last two decades, the discipline of software engineering has emerged as the driving force behind professionally produced software. The features of the software engineering approach to system development are well documented, see Sommerville [1]. Even so, few, if any, software projects ever incorporate all developmental stages, rigorous design approaches and testing techniques
