How to Measure software Quality

Poor code and undetected critical issues, developer spent more time to detect, locate and repair the software development process.

Software quality measurement is benchmark for monitoring, verifying and validating with early defect detection and application size.

If SQA team and development team is not using right software quality measurement method, then hidden or undetected threats could be produce critical software outage.

Aside from general expectation, source code quality, minimize threats and user specified requirement SQA team and large IT companies presented their ideas with the help of following formula
1] CUPRIMDS –: Capability, Usability, Performance, Reliability, Installability, Maintainability, documentation and service
2] FURPS –: Functionality, Usability, Reliability, Performance, Service

1] CUPRIMDS –:
1. Capability -: Ability to perform certain action through set of controllable measure or environments
2. Usability -: Easy to use, interaction and matching more closely user specified requirements
3. Performance -: A process of performing task and function under critical (stress, load) condition
4. Reliability -: It is process of evaluation and measure under specified time period (MTTF, MTTR)
5. Installability -: It is easy to install, run and retrieve data whenever required
6. Maintainability -: Probability of performing successful operation, measure speed and ease of application after installed
7. Documentation -: It is used to serve official information (manual of technical and facility description) and flow of data
8. Service -: Set of valuable actions performed to fulfils user specified needs or provide facility for user satisfaction

2] FURPS –: Functionality, Usability, Reliability, Performance, Service
1. Functionality -: Verify and validate all user specified functions performing correctly
2. Usability -: Easy to use, interaction and matching more closely user specified requirements
3. It is process of evaluation and measure under specified time period (MTTF, MTTR)
4. Performance -: A process of performing task and function under critical (stress, load) condition
5. Service -: Set of valuable actions performed to fulfill user specified needs or provide facility for user satisfaction
