More and more organisations, in all sectors of the economy, are becoming increasingly dependent on software, either as an integral part of their “product” or to support their business process. The software industry is putting considerable effort in trying to improve the quality of their products. This book addresses a number of important topics in the area of software product quality, based on the results of European research and practical experiences.

“Achieving Software Product Quality” covers the latest developments in ISO product quality standards (ISO 9126), the importance of measurement, usability design approaches, software evaluation and certification methods and techniques and a structured approach for software testing. In addition relatively new topics such Multimedia systems quality are presented. Together the papers, written by various experts in the field, present an overview on the state-of-the-art and state-of-the-practice in the area of software product quality.

The book has been produced in the context of the ESSI-SCOPE project. The European project ESSI-SCOPE aims at raising the awareness on quality issues in software products, with a special focus on software product evaluation. Both editors were members of the ESSI-SCOPE project team.
