Software quality assurance (SQA) is becoming increasingly important to the software
and electronics industries as software systems become more complex and integrative.
This book is designed to serve the three audiences who will be facing the SQA
challenge: students at universities and colleges, participants in vocational training
courses and software development and maintenance practitioners/professionals.
The book is a product of the author’s many years of consulting and teaching
experience.
Features:
? A broad view of SQA. Discussion goes beyond classic custom-made software to
include issues of in-house software development, outsourcing, and SQA in small
organizations.
? Comprehensive discussion of practical issues. Stress is placed throughout on
SQA application, operation, organization and control.
? Comprehensive coverage of SQA topics.Topics rarely covered in SQA texts are
included: procedures and work instructions, supportive quality devices, costs of
software quality and the actors participating in the SQA framework.
? State-of–the-art topics.Automated testing, computerized SQA tools and interna-
tional standards (e.g., ISO 9000-3) are among the topics covered.
? Pedagogical support. Each chapter includes summary frames, case studies, real-life
examples and implementation tips, review questions and topics for discussion.
? On-line instructor’s guide.The guide contains lesson planning guidelines,
PowerPoint presentations and a test bank.
The book comprehensively covers the ISO 9000-3 requirements. It also provides a
substantial portion of the body of knowledge required for the CSQE (Certified
Software Quality Engineer) as outlined by the ASQ (American Society for Quality).
Dr Daniel Galin currently serves as Head of Information Systems Studies, the
Ruppin Academic Center. In addition to his many papers, Dr Galin has also authored
several books on the analysis and design of information systems as well as co-
authoring (with Dr Z. Bluvband) a book on software quality assurance in Hebrew.
His professional experience includes numerous consulting projects in software quality
assurance and information systems design for major Israeli firms. He received his BSc,
MSc and DSc from the Faculty of Industrial and Management Engineering of the
Technion, Israel Institute of Technology, Haifa, Israel.
