Today's engineering managers who use total quality management (TQM) face the challenge of moving it from adoption to seamless incorporation into their organizations. Both the application and the theory of TQM can be advanced through an examination of the philosophy of pragmatism and the sciences of adaptation. Pragmatism provides a philosophy that establishes a theory for incorporating TQM into engineers' ...

  • Introduction

    In this chapter we give a tutorial definition of Quality of Experience (QoE) in multimedia communications and outline the book's structure, with a short overview of each chapter.

  • From Wonderland to the Real Problem

    Most people see the software crisis as a reality in software development. The author disagrees, and believes that long ago the software world moved through the looking glass into Wonderland, in which proposed breakthrough solutions resemble the conversations at the Mad Hatter's tea party. The real problem is a near total disconnection of Practitioners-those who build and maintain the product-and Others-the managers, vendors, and researchers who perpetuate the idea of a crisis and advise Practitioners how to handle it. According to the author, the Practitioners are generally closer to the truth than the Others. The misinformation chain starts with researchers, who advocate rather than evaluate new concepts. Vendors of products, services, and methodologies, who use and elaborate that unfounded advocacy, add more links to the chain. Finally, managers bind Practitioners to the misinformed practices advocated and elaborated by those earlier in the chain.

  • Software Audits

    This chapter focuses on the software audit, which is one of the most formal types of reviews. It presents the components of detection costs. Audits allow for detecting defects and therefore diminish the software product development risks. Audit activities are usually targeted to the most important projects of the organization and its external supplier's activities. An internal audit, also called a first‐party audit, can be useful for a software supplier wanting to obtain an ISO 9001 certification. The chapter describes a third‐party audit that is typically conducted by an independent organization. ISO 12207 defines audit requirements and a decision management process. The chapter summarizes the audit characteristics according to the IEEE 1028 standard. It expresses that improvement and conformity assessments will always consider the assessment of the current processes used by an organization. An organization must implement a corrective action (CA) process following the conduct of internal or external audits.

  • Policies, Processes, and Procedures

    The cost of quality, policies, processes, and procedures are classified as preventive cost elements, which are costs incurred by an organization to prevent the occurrence of errors in various development or maintenance processes. Policies, processes, and procedures are commonly used in the following business models: custom systems written on contract and commercial and mass‐market firmware. This chapter describes the policies, processes, and procedures of the quality system documentation pyramid for the software organization. The best and most effective documentation is a concise graphical representation of a document, a process, or a procedure. ISO 9001 defines the work environment as a set of conditions under which daily work is performed. The chapter outlines some elements that are used to describe the processes, activities, tasks, roles, and products of ISO/IEC 29110. The Personal Software Process (PSP) enables all engineers to significantly increase the quality of their software products while increasing their productivity and respecting deadlines.
