Computer programming, Computer programs, Reliability
The problems associated with software development and use are investigated from a management point of view. Having identified the critical aspects of effective software management, an approach is suggested for the creation and implementation of a software quality assurance program, Particular attention is focused on the concept of Life Cycle Procurement as currently utilized by the Department of Defense. The research was accomplished in two phases. The first consisted of an extensive literature search, seminar attendance and participation in several working groups assigned the responsibility for establishing software quality assurance guidelines. The second phase involved direct participation in the development of a formal software quality assurance program. The report is written in a manner designed to guide a non-technically oriented manager through a complete analysis of software, its measures of quality, its problem sources and the most promising techniques which can he used to control and evaluate its development.
