NUST School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (SEECS) is organizing a Workshop on Quality for Sustainable Software Design 11 June 2014 | 1100 Hrs | SEECS seminar hall

Presentation Abstract:

The presentation will build a case for why Quality should be a paramount concern for sustainable software engineering especially when dealing with medium to high level of complex products and services which have to stand the test of time.  It will attempt to define the quality challenge and provide a perspective from a single release as well as the complete lifespan point of views.  The correlation between cost, schedules, quality and maturity is explained and a desirable optimum configuration is described.  A capability and maturity based framework is suggested to devise a list of practical actions and initiatives to achieve the desired goals
