Evolving Perceptions of Quality Assurance

Evolving Perceptions of Quality Assurance

Before the production of software and information technologies  had become widely used, quality has long been matched  with physical objects or systems, such as automobiles, tools, radio receivers, television  receivers and others. Due to this fact, quality assurance is often associated with the production process. Before the production of software and information
technologies  had become widely used,
quality has long been matched  with
physical objects or systems, such as automobiles, tools, radio receivers,
television  receivers and others. Due to
this fact, quality assurance is often associated with the production
process.The emphasis is on ensuring that products meet
their requirements. Moreover, these requirements often come with the
end-products in order to give customers or users opportunity to test them for
compliance.For instance, in the manual on the use of stereo
equipment  their technical requirements
are often compiled  according to physical
measurements, total harmonic  distortion,
frequency response or some other relevant data.Since a lot of points in the technical requirements
of the product are compiled according to the ranges and acceptance limit of
errors, deviations decrease in production has been the place where the
statistical quality control may focus.Problems associated with quality are synonymous to
discrepancy to technical requirements or observed errors caused by this discrepancy.
For instance, the typically used “initial quality” for vehicles  can be determined as the average number of
reported errors per 100 automobiles  by
owners during the first 3 years of using car based on actual survey
results.One more typically used quality measure for
vehicles,  reliability, is calculated by
a number of problems over a longer period of time for different phases of the
existence of a vehicle. ThatÂ’s why, it is usually considered to be the most
important measure of quality for used automobiles.During the development of services appears new
point of view about quality.  It is that
business has to adapt to  dynamic
changing expectations of  consumers focusing
on quality control which is changed from zero defect in  products to zero defection of
consumers.ClientsÂ’ loyalty due to their common experience of
working with the service is more important than just compliance with
established standards and technical requirements.Software industry has brought together the
correspondence and official views on the quality, and software
with high quality can be determined by such major elements
as compliance, adaptability and innovation.This view generally shares many beliefs about the
quality of software that have been described above. There are many reasons to
change the point of view about the quality and other areas of quality
assurance concentration.For instance, the main hypothesis of the physical
restrictions, integrity, composition and decomposition, and others cannot be
developed more or  displayed in the
shifting  world of software.
