Software Quality is Degrading. Here is How to Save It

Software Quality is Degrading. Here is How to Save It

Before releasing a software and if there are still many open issues, it is often that project team enters into an emergency situation and begins the efforts to rescue the release by focusing all efforts on testing. They do as much as they can to close the issues through testing and fixing. This is like trying to save life through Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR). Unfortunately, this might work or might not. The question is: What to do?

In fact, there are a lot of precautions that can be done to avoid such a situation. I would summarize them and say that quality should be baked in. In other words, quality should be built into software rather than integrating it later. Therefore, testing, closing issues and quality activities in general should begin as early as possible even on the first day of the project.

All the best…
