Assessing Right Amount of Quality Assurance (QA) for Software Products. "A Quality Assurances for Developing Software Projects"

Murtaza Hussain Shaikh, Mir Sajjad Hussain Talpur

Abstract

Quality Assurance (QA) is an important aspect of product development in any industry, not least software development. To secure an end-product that is as high a quality as possible, thus satisfying the customers, Quality Assurance is essential. A software application released with several so-called "bugs" and other flaws is obviously a product which has passed through a poor Quality Assurance process. Thus, it is important to have a proper, systematic program to follow during the developments, which ascertain the final quality of the product. Too much QA however, can lead to developers focusing too much on analyzing and documenting every part of the development, ending up with an overload of documentation. This would slow down the development progress, and in the worst case, kill of the project. There are two main aspects of this paper; first problems of “inappropriate amount of Software Quality Assurance” and second is "how we can balance between creativity and quality"? However, we will briefly visit other industries to shed light on the importance of QA as a whole.
