Software quality may be defined as conformance to explicitly functional and performance requirement explicitly documented developed standard and implicit characteristic that are expected of all professionally developed software. This tend to three important points

a)      Software requirements are the foundation from which quality is measured, lack of conformance to requirement is lack of quality

b)      Specified standard defined asset of development criteria that guide the manner in which the software is engineered, failure to follow such may compromise the software quality

c)       Asset of implicit requirement example ease of use and good maintainability is necessary and lack of which compromises the quality

Software Quality Assurance Activities

Software quality assurance activities lies in the hand of software engineer who do technical work and SQA group that have the responsibility of quality assurance planning, record keeping analysis and reporting.
