Summary: This module emphasizes software quality engineering as an integral facet of development, from requirements through delivery and maintenance. We will understand how to choose appropriate quality goals and select, plan, and execute quality assurance activities throughout development and evolution to predictably meet quality and schedule goals. We introduce also how quality assurance can be incorporated into process improvement feedback loops that amplify the ability of an organization to cost-effectively prevent and detect faults.
