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)
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)

Bridging the gap between end user expectations, vendors' business prospects, and software engineers' requirements on the ground. Foreword Welcome to the 7th International Workshop on Software Quality and Maintainability. Continuing the debate of Is software quality in the eye of the beholder? started seven years ago, this workshop aims at feeding into it by(More)
In software systems recurring patterns are often observed and have been collected and documented in different forms, as for example in development guidelines. These well-known patterns are utilized to support design decisions or to automatically detect flaws in software systems. For the most part, these patterns are related to software quality issues and(More)
