Concepts of ISO 9000 and the Software Development Life Cycle

  • Arthur M. Langer

Abstract

Perhaps one of the most significant challenges in analysis today is its role in the software life cycle. There has been much criticism by management, users, and developers as to the lack of discipline applied to software development projects and personnel in general. The software industry continues to have a poor reputation for delivering quality products on schedule. Although many organizations have procedures, few really follow them and fewer still have any means of measuring the quality and productivity of software development. A system of procedures should first be developed prior to implementing a life cycle that can ensure its adherence to the procedure. These procedures also need to be measured on an ongoing basis. This book restricts its focus to the set of procedures that should be employed in the analysis and design functions.
