Product operation factors− Correctness, Reliability, Efficiency, Integrity, Usability. Software Quality Attributes: The Basics. Following factors are used to measure Software Development Quality. When the system requirements are defined, it is essential also to define what is expected regarding these quality attributes, since these expectations will guide the planning of the system architecture and design.

This standard describes a hierarchy of eight quality characteristics, each composed of sub-characteristics: Functional suitability; Reliability; Operability; Performance efficiency; Security; Compatibility Die ISO 25010 bietet Methoden zur Bewertung der Qualität und Güte von Softwareprodukten und softwarebasierten Leistungen. /Length 9 0 R 3 Software Quality Attributes 3.1 Quality Attributes Much of a software architect’s life is spent designing software systems to meet a set of quality attribute requirements. qual-ities such as performance and modifiability depend at least as much on the overall architecture as on the code level implemen-tation. Software quality assurance (SQA) on a higher level seems like we are talking about the evaluation of software on the basis of certain attributes such as functionality, performance, adaptability, etc. They are commonly divided in two main groups based on the quality they are requesting, i.e., development and operational qualities. This metrics include the following − 1. Our experience shows that there are conflicts between modifiability and performance. When a developer got to know what non-functional requirements he/she needs to have, it’s easier to understand what software quality attributes should be optimized for the architecture. f��ۢx�����UMoࢿ��yTU�U��I��=`�wŠ�;88;����o�j�;�� Q�\�/؆`�70� ��\��6�JrAӇNMlOX��+�9��ʻ[v. endobj The quality of a system is the degree to which the system satisfies the stated and implied needs of its various stakeholders, and thus provides value. <> Software architects need to understand their designs in terms of quality attributes. Software Quality Attributes are: Correctness, Reliability, Adequacy, Learnability, Robustness, Maintainability, Readability, Extensibility, Testability, Efficiency, Portability. This approach to software quality is best exemplified by fixed quality models, such as ISO/IEC 25010:2011. Diese aktuellen Herausforderungen beeinflussen auch die Art, wie Software entworfen und entwickelt wird. Common subsets. Software Quality Attributes Approach. Next, we’ll look at what exactly each attribute means individually.Performance shows the response of the system to performing certain actions for a certain period of time.There are two ways how to measure performance: 1.

Good software design tends to enhance multiple software quality attributes at the same time, for example, by designing for testability (via TDD for example) we also increase the readability, modularity, portability and maintainability. Channel capacity. Acknowledgements I would like to thank Prof. Harald … Each attribute can be used to measure product performance. General software quality at-tributes include scalability, security, performance and reliability. This model classifies all software requirements into 11 software quality factors. 2 0 obj Functionality, usability, reliability, performance and supportability are together referred to as FURPS in relation to software requirements. It also discusses what quality is by presenting a number of high-profile quality gurus together with their thoughts on quality (which in some cases actually results in a more or less formal quality model). Publisher: Software Engineering Institute. They represent areas of concern that have the potential for application wide impact across layers and tiers. endobj Mean Time to Failure 2. 1 0 obj %PDF-1.5 This involves the thorough study of the internal and external features of the software, including real-time operations experienced by the end user and the actual code written in which only the developer is aware of. Interoperability is an attribute of the system or part of the system that is responsible for its operation and the transmission of data and its exchange with other external systems. The quality of software systems may be expressed as a collection of Software Quality Attributes. The purpose of this report is to take a small step in the direction of developing a unifying approach for reasoning about multiple software quality attributes. Customer Problems 4. At the early stages of software process it is very difficult to define a complete software specification. <>>> 4 0 obj Additionally the old trade-off between quality itself and productivity no longer applies.

Product revision factors− Maintainability, Flexibility, Testability.

Many of these quality attributes can also be applied to data quality. Certain software quality attributes such as maintainability, usability, reliability cannot be exactly specified and measured. Note 1 to entry: Software quality characteristics can be refined into multiple levels of subcharacteristics and finally into software quality attributes. To reason about architectural patterns, we must first characterize the quality attribute requirements.
