Publisher Comments:

Improving Software Quality Do you want to cut development and maintenance cycle times by 50% or more? Do you want to reduce costs by 50% or more? Do you want to virtually eliminate software defects and related reliability problems? Do you want to get out from under the burden of your existing software? Then, you need this book—an insider’s guide to Total Quality Management. Improving Software Quality tells you how to apply Total Quality Management (TQM) to software development and evolution. You’ll find out how to translate the manufacturing orientation of existing TQM material into a software environment with extensive examples for both development and maintenance. Using the Software Engineering Institute’s assessment (SEI), you’ll learn how to quickly benchmark your existing software organization against the best in the world and begin to implement proven action plans to establish a baseline of excellence.
