Introduction

Introduction

TDT 4235 – Quality assurance and process improvement – consists of two parts:

  • Quality Assurance – QA: nine lectures, covered by 14 chapters in the compendium.

  • Software Process Improvement – SPI: 23 lectures, covered by 19 chapters in the compendium

    Lectures are held on

  • Wednesdays 13:15 – 14:00 in F6

  • Fridays 11:15 – 13:00 in F3


What will you learn

What will you learn

This course have two foci: QA and SPI. In the course we will focus on how to do QA and SPI in an industrial setting. This means that quit a lot of what you will learn are methods that

  • Look a little “un-scientific” and contains little mathematics and proofs

  • Are simple to use in practice

  • Are based on solid industrial experience and are known to work in practice


What will you learn qa 1

What will you learn – QA (1)

  • An intro to quality and quality assurance

  • The concept of Total Quality Management – TQM

  • The International Standards Organization quality standard ISO 9001 plus its guidelines for software – ISO 90003

  • How to certify a quality system

  • Different types of standards


What will you learn qa 2

What will you learn – QA (2)

  • How to introduce and implement a standard in a company

  • Quality improvement – the what’s and how’s

  • How to measure and assess quality

  • A product quality standard – ISO 9126

  • QA, ISO 9001 and agile development (Scrum)

  • QA, TQM and innovations – pros and cons


What will you learn spi 1

What will you learn – SPI (1)

SPI in an industrial setting is about three main activities

  • Data collection and analysis – what is the problem, where does it come from and how big is it?

  • Root Cause Analysis – how can we get rid of or reduce the problem?

  • Post-analysis – did our solution really work and what can we learn from it?


What will you learn spi 2

What will you learn – SPI (2)

  • An intro to software process improvement

  • SPI through best practice – CMM – and through problem solving – TQM

  • Analysing risk and opportunity – the GALE and ALARP methods

  • Data collection for SPI

    • SWOT, Gap analysis and Open space.

    • Affinity diagrams, interviews, surveys and experiments


What will you learn spi 3

What will you learn – SPI (3)

  • Subjective data and how to analyse them

  • Data archaeology

  • Post Mortem Analysis – PMA – and business value

  • Root Cause Analysis – RCA

  • Goal – Question – Metrics, the GQM method for data collection

  • Data analysis

    • Plotting

    • Statistical analysis

    • Sample size


What will you learn spi 4

What will you learn – SPI (4)

  • Reuse of experience

  • Proactive SPI

  • Alternative SPI – a collection of methods that has been used and sometimes worked quite well

  • Several case studies from industrial SPI


About exercises 1

About exercises – 1

The exercises will be done in groups of 3 to 5 persons. There are three exercises:

  • Exercise 1: write a QA procedure for a Small – Medium Enterprise (SME).

  • Exercise 2: write an essay. The topic have to be selected from a predefined list of essay topics. The result will count for 30% of your grade.

  • Exercise 3: perform data analysis of a set of error reports and suggest improvements for the company.


About exercises 2

About exercises – 2

You need to get together and

  • Form groups

  • Report the group’s members to the teaching assistant, who will give the group a serial number.

    All group members will get the same assessment

  • Pass or No pass for exercise 1 and 3

  • Points between 0 and 30 for exercise 2


Students expectations 1

Students’ expectations – 1

I need to know what you expect to get out of the course.

  • I’m not planning to meet all your expectations

  • I will tell you which of your expectations that

    • Will be met. E.g. you will learn about how to assess product quality

    • Will not be met. E.g. you will not learn how to be a better programmer.


Students expectations 2

Students’ expectations – 2

You can help me by writing down your expectations for the course on a piece of paper – one short sentence per item – and give it to me after this lecture

I will analyse the input, make a summary and tell you which part of your expectations that will be met by the course.

The summary will be presented at the start of the lecture next Monday.
