The Role Of QA: Shrinking or Expanding ?
Optimizing processes in a company is like cultivating good habits at home Quality assurance is the planned and systematic set of activities that ensures that software processes and products conform to requirements, standards, and procedures. Processes include all of the activities involved in designing, developing, enhancing, and maintaining software. Products include the software, associated data, its documentation, and all supporting and reporting paperwork.

This led to major economic growth, but machines started to replace the average worker, who could not get another job or acquire a new skill, which hurt many people. The similarity of the situation QA testing finds itself in currently is uncanny. Problems This problem has been particularly acute in the performance testing/engineering discipline as well as the automated functional testing area. Prices have been running counter to standard economic models where a scarcity of a resource would demand higher prices The value of the new providers is so low that the natural rise in prices due to scarce resources is being completely offset by the low value of the of providers. Great as a market model case study Bad for the software quality assurance profession. Related Reading Shrinking Role Of QA What we are left with is a sense of imbalance. Developers create code that lacks the necessary quality, while at the same time, management is cutting down on QA. There is an inherent flaw here. Reports In February 2001, as the dot-com bubble was bursting, the Agile Manifesto was published and a new way of developer thinking started to emerge. Agile development methodologies breathed new life into the developer world, where adapting to ever-changing situations and rapidly deploying working software became the focus of development teams. Agile is more involved in each working part of a team and the code, with a special focus on developer testing rather than QA testing. As Agile continues to become more widespread and effective, QA is needed less, and that means it has one foot out the door. QA Importance and necessity If you dont care about quality, you can meet any other requirement Gerald M. Weinberg QA is pretty important. Quality Assurance testing is employed to reduce possible defects in every stage of the software development life cycle. The 2003 book Managing Software Engineering Knowledge states the focus of Software Quality Assurance is to monitor continuously throughout the Software Development Life Cycle to ensure the quality of the delivered products. Know Your Audience, Know Yourself Sure, Quality Assurance QA testing your code can be a chore. Its tedious. Youd rather be surfing or checking your Facebook news feed. But you cant put it off in this age of so many different phones, tablets, and other web-enabled devices. Knowing your audience before you start designing will help you focus your attention on the features and platforms that matter most. The main goals of QA during software development are to develop error free software, to determine if there is any variation from software requirements, to use the software in a real time environment, and to provide confidence in the software, among other things. The bottom line seems to be that QA is important, and that customers would prefer to wait slightly longer for a quality product then receive a potentially flawed one sooner. You are better off taking the time to complete it than not. Reports A article on Bhakti Satalkar corroborates this, stating that the main goals of QA during software development are to develop error free software, to determine if there is any variation from software requirements, to use the software in a real time environment, and to provide confidence in the software, among other things. The bottom line seems to be that QA is important, and that customers would prefer to wait slightly longer for a quality product then receive a potentially flawed one sooner.

R. D. Tata Testing is a skill. While this may come as a surprise to some people it is a simple fact. Software Quality assurance is the process, in which whole software development activities will strict follow some rules or regulations. The rules or regulations are called as Standards that is followed in Software development life cycle. If this standard is not followed then there is chance for errors in many ways. These standard will assure the development process bug free.The quality assurance standards is set by organization and it is followed the all team members of the project. This Quality assurance specialist will monitor every one. Simply this assurance enables 100 bug free software.
