Published software quality models either provide abstract quality attributes or concrete quality assessments. There are no models that seamlessly integrate both aspects. In the project Quamoco, we built a comprehensive approach with the aim to close this gap. For this, we developed in several iterations a meta quality model specifying general concepts, a(More)
This paper presents the findings of a survey on quality models in practice conducted among four software companies in Germany. In the first phase of the study, 25 quality managers and users of software quality models were interviewed regarding the use of quality models, quality assurance techniques, and problems arising from the current situation in their(More)
Assuring high quality of software is crucial, but a highly complex topic. It is intermingled with most disciplines of software engineering, which have developed their own quality assurance approaches. However, they lack a common foundation, which leads to loss of information between the disciplines and requires additional tracking effort. There is no(More)
Context: Software quality models provide either abstract quality characteristics or concrete quality measurements; there is no seamless integration of these two aspects. Quality assessment approaches are, hence, also very specific or remain abstract. Reasons for this include the complexity of quality and the various quality profiles in different domains(More)
Service-oriented architectures (SOAs) are well established as an architectural paradigm for distributed systems. With software systems becoming more and more complex over time, quality assurance becomes increasingly important. A clear understanding of software quality for SOA is therefore crucial in order to assure quality in the long run. In this paper, we(More)
With the service-oriented paradigm, some established ways of thinking about software quality and its assurance seem to change. But things do not necessarily become more difficult. Some considerable advancements to traditional ways of quality management can be introduced through the use of service-based systems, leading to largely reduced efforts and(More)
Statistical data on the proportionate share of tuberculosis of the skeleton in tuberculotic diseases, vary between 1% and 4%, according to the Deutsches Zentralkomitee zur Bekämpfung der Tuberkulose, 1977 Hamburg; Kaster 1964. This type of tuberculosis mainly affects relatively young people up to 20 years of age and elderly people who are around 50.(More)
