So far, we have discussed software quality purely in terms of what it is (Chapter 2), and in terms of the process frameworks (Chapter 3), and the good practice – coding, design, and planning (Chapters 4 and 5) – that can be used to ensure it. Ultimately, however, it becomes necessary to actually take stock – to step back and assess the quality of the system at hand. This chapter marks the point where we move from discussing ‘good practice’ to discussing families of techniques – testing, inspection, and measurement, that are specifically dedicated to providing an objective assessment of (a particular aspect of) the quality of a system.
