More About This Title Software Quailty Engineering: A Practitioner's Approach


Software quality stems from two distinctive, but associated, topics in software engineering: software functional quality and software structural quality. Software Quality Engineering studies the tenets of both of these notions, which focus on the efficiency and value of a design, respectively. The text addresses engineering quality on both the application and system levels with attention to Information Systems and Embedded Systems as well as recent developments. Targeted at graduate engineering students and software quality specialists, the book analyzes the relationship between functionality and quality with practical applications to related ISO/IEC JTCI SC7 standards.


WITOLD SURYN, PHD, is a Professor at the École de Technologie Supérieure, Montreal, Canada (engineering school of the Université du Québec network of institutions) where he teaches graduate and undergraduate software engineering courses and conducts research in the domain of software quality engineering, software trustworthiness, and software project management. Dr. Suryn is also the principal researcher and the director of GELOG: IQUAL, the Software Quality Engineering Research Group at École de Technologie Supérieure; the Canadian expert to ISO/IEC SC7—System and Software Engineering Working Group 6 on software quality; and the International Secretary of ISO/IEC SC7.
