Process Quality Assurance for UML-Based Projects


Software quality, by its very nature, is elusive. Add to that the issue of ever-changing user requirements and the vagaries of software project management and "quality" can easily become a mere word on a distant horizon. This highly acclaimed book demonstrates how the Unified Modeling Language (UML) can be used within a process framework to help reduce complexity, clarify requirements, and add structure to project management in order to yield software quality here and now.

Process Quality Assurance for UML-Based Projects focuses on the crucial process aspect of software quality. In an easy, entertaining way, the author outlines common-sense strategies for determining the applicability of UML to a project, creating and managing project teams, identifying levels of quality standards, applying quality techniques, and estimating and testing in UML-based projects.

With this book you will be able to:

  • Understand the elusive nature of software quality, the pressures on software quality, and the importance of processes and modeling in enhancing software quality
  • Divide modeling into three distinct but related spaces--problem, solution, and background space--and correlate the roles of business analyst, system designer, and system architect to these modeling spaces respectively
  • Understand quality discussions applicable to small, medium, and large projects
  • Appreciate the sociological aspect of quality management in software projects, including the value of transactional analysis (TA) in team formation and motivation
  • Relate to an iterative and incremental process based on the concepts of process-components and related activities, tasks, roles, and deliverables
  • Move your organization forward in terms of CMM process maturity
  • Gain valuable and practical insights into process and project metrics, measurements, and estimations
  • Appreciate the strategic aspect of testing as it relates to quality assurance
  • Understand quality discussions applicable to new developments, integration, package implementation, outsourcing, data warehousing, and educational projects
  • Access extremely well-referenced work by leading practitioners, researchers, and academicians
  • Estimate and refine process and project metrics


At the end of each chapter, key points are encapsulated in FAQs and exercises for easy referencing and team training. The accompanying CD-ROM contains chapter diagrams in a course format, a Case Study, customizable templates , a starting project plan based on process-components, and trial versions of relevant process tools, MeNtOR Lite(TM), and CBEADS(TM).
