The Theory of Relative Dependency: Higher Coupling Concentration in Smaller Modules

A. Gunes Koru; Khaled El Emam IEEE Software, 2010

Our observations on several large-scale software products has consistently shown that smaller modules are proportionally more defect prone. These findings, challenge the common recommendations from the literature suggesting that quality assurance (QA) and quality control (QC) resources should focus on larger modules. Those recommendations are based on the unfounded assumption that a monotonically increasing linear relationship exists between module size ...


Ultra high speed calculation method for link bandwidth design considering failures

Ryuta Sugiyama; Tomonori Takeda; Hisashi Kojima; Ichiro Inoue; Kohei Shiomoto 8th Asia-Pacific Symposium on Information and Telecommunication Technologies, 2010

This paper proposes an ultra high speed calculation method for a link bandwidth design considering failures by using Linear Programming (LP). Our previous study has already proposed the link bandwidth design method by using LP, however the previous method takes quite a lot of calculation time in a large network because of the LP calculation. As the network size becomes ...


A framework for assessing the use of third-party software quality assurance standards to meet FDA medical device software process control guideline's

M. W. Bovee; D. L. Paul; K. M. Nelson IEEE Transactions on Engineering Management, 2001

The proliferation of medical device software (MDS) potentially increases the risks of patient injury from software defects. The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1998 updated its MDS regulations, moving away from a product-based regulatory approach toward one more focused on quality assurance processes. However, what constituted acceptable software quality assurance (SQA) processes and whether regulations could be met ...

  • Core Lamination Insulation Failure and Repair

    This chapter discusses the most common causes of stator and rotor core failures in both induction and synchronous machines, together with proven repair methods. Degradation of the core condition due to the effects of thermal aging can occur in all rotating machine laminated cores. Electrical aging occurs when the voltage across the lamination insulation induced by magnetic fluxes, electromagnetic forces, or high ground-fault currents causes deterioration. The most common causes of mechanical degradation in cores are inadequate core pressure applied in manufacture, core pressure reduction in service due to relaxation of the core support structure, core vibration, back- of-core looseness, and mechanical damage causing smearing of the core surface at the bore. A number of different core insulation defects can be introduced during manufacture and these may not be detected if adequate quality assurance (QA) checks are not performed.

  • Solar Thermal Quality Assurance

    Implementation of Solar Thermal Technology describes thesuccesses and failures of the commercialization efforts of the U.S.solar thermal energy program, from the oil embargo of 1973 throughthe demise of the program in the early Reagan administration andits afterlife since then. The emphasis throughout is on lessonslearned from the solar experience, with an eye toward applicationsto other projects as well as toward possible renewal of efforts atcommercialization.Part I discusses the history of government involvement in solardevelopment and the parallel development of the market for solarproducts. Part II looks at the histories of specific commercializationprograms for five areas (active heating and cooling, passivetechnologies, passive commercial building activities, industrialprocess heat, and high-temperature technologies). Parts III-VIIIfocus in turn on demonstration and construction projects, qualityassurance, information dissemination programs, efforts to transfertechnology to industry, incentive programs (tax credits, financing,and grants), and organizational support.Solar Heat Technologies: Fundamentals and Applications, Volume 10

  • Input Domain Partitioning and Boundary Testing

    In this chapter, the idea of partition-based testing is applied to partition the overall input domain into sub-domains and to test them accordingly. Many problems are commonly observed at the boundaries, leading us to examine various boundary testing strategies in this chapter. Several important boundary testing strategies are described, including extreme point combination (EPC) and weak NX1 and weak 1X1. We also extend these strategies and generalize boundary testing for testing based on other boundary-like situations.

  • Practitioner, Heal Thyself

    This chapter suggests that a software industry could be improved by utilizing a medical school model in universities. Like most current curricula, individual courses would cover requirements, design, implementation, testing, quality assurance and configuration management, project management, formal methods, maintenance, metrics, and so on. After all, people should strive to teach how to do things, not just how to talk about things. Like medical students, each software student should also be assigned a cadaver: a large software system that either works now or worked at one time. During every regular class, students would simultaneously enroll in the cadaver lab, where they would perform related tasks on their assigned software. As in medicine, the students must complete a minimum one-year internship. Internships could take place in special for-profit or not-for-profit companies closely affiliated with or established by the school of software.

  • Feedback Loop and Activities for Quantifiable Quality Improvement

    To support quantifiable quality improvement, various parallel and followup activities to the main quality assurance (QA) activities are needed, including: 1) Monitoring the specific QA activities and the overall software development or maintenance activities, and extracting relevant measurement data. 2) Analyzing the data collected above for quality quantification and identification of quality improvement opportunities. 3) Providing feedback to the QA and development/maintenance activities and carrying out followup actions based on the analysis results above. These activities also close the quality engineering feedback loop. All the important issues related to these activities are discussed in this chapter.

  • Quality Engineering

    In this chapter, we discuss other major activities associated with quality assurance (QA) for software systems, primarily in the areas of setting quality goals, planning for QA, monitoring QA activities, and providing feedback for project management and quality improvement.

  • Testing Techniques: Adaptation, Specialization, and Integration

    In this chapter, we examine individual testing sub-phases and appropriate techniques for them, other specialized tasks and specialized testing techniques, and integration of different testing techniques to fulfill some specific purposes in practical applications. Test integration is also illustrated through a strategy for web testing that integrates both usage- based and coverage-based testing at different levels.
