A software quality toolbox: theory, design and experimentation P. Chalk & P.

New paradigms, such as object oriented approaches, have given rise to further debate. In addition, the pressures from industry for quality management and engineering principles have often resulted in separately taught units in these disciplines. We argue for a pragmatic approach incorporating appropriate aspects of theory, design methodologies and software analysis into the mainstream of software development education. INTRODUCTION Teaching staff at South Bank University have evolved an approach to teaching software development based on sound engineering principles, quality management and a variety of design and analysis tools. The units equip the s
