Distributed Quality Control: A Challenge for Software System Development

  • Gernot Starke
  • Oliver Scholz


For highly distributed user environments, like they are found in the field of tourism, special measures have to be applied to assure that only software products of required quality are produced. By combining established systems analysis methods with a specific quality model, detailed quality requirements are detected and can be mapped onto a model of the development process. This results in project specific process models, which can support and improve system development.
