On Thu, Jul 12, 2018 Linda Westfall presented “Essential Competencies for Improving Software Development”

Traditionally, manufacturing based quality approaches have focused on our ability to replicate multiple copies of a product over and over again to an exact specification within acceptable variation. While the replication process does exist for software (for example, making many copies of a CD), it is rarely the cause of major software quality and reliability issues. Another reliability issue is that physical equipment and products “wear out” over time so preventive maintenance and calibration are important considerations. However, software is not a physical entity and therefore it does not “wear out”, once a defect is removed from the software, it is gone for good as long as good configuration management practices are in place.

Since software defects rarely come from replication and they do not occur because of physical deterioration over time — software is different. Software quality are concerned with the requirements, design, implementation, verification and validation processes used to develop the software. This webinar will explore some of the essential competencies involved in shifting traditional quality approaches to a software development focus.

A note from the RMMR conference Chair

I would like to take this opportunity to invite/welcome you to the annual RMMR 2022 conference. It has been a couple of years of disruptions and as a result of those disruptions many things have changed. Most notably the transition from face to face meetings to remote meetings. It is a safe assumption that our
