International Technical Report ISO/IEC was prepared by the Joint Technical Committee ISO/IEC JTC1, Information Technology, Subcommittee SC7 . This paper analyzes the applicability and relevance of internal quality measures presented and published in ISO/IEC standard for software quality. ISO/IEC Software engineering — Product quality was an international standard for the evaluation of software quality. It has been replaced by ISO/IEC.

There is also a definition of quality in use which defines the user’s view as a result of using the software.
This part provides the concepts introduced in the original standard ie a recommended quality model which categorizes software quality in six characteristics, which are further sub-divided into subcharacteristics. ISO standards by standard number. Each quality sub-characteristic lec. This standard stems from the GE model for describing software quality, presented in by McCall et al. They have been reworded and several new ones added.
ISO 9126: The Standard of Reference
Attributes of software that make the software adhere to application related standards or conventions or regulations in laws and similar prescriptions. Attributes of software that bear on the presence and appropriateness of a set of functions for specified tasks. Attributes of software that bear on the effort needed for diagnosis of deficiencies or causes of failures, or for identification of parts to be modified.
Attributes of software that bear on opportunity and effort using it in the place of specified other software in the environment of that software. Attributes of software that bear on the effort needed to install the software in a specified environment. External metrics are applicable to an executable software product during testing or operating in later stage of development and after entering to operation process.
Attributes of software that bear on its ability to maintain a specified level of performance in case of software faults or of infringement of its specified interface.
As a isso, the notion of user extends to operators as well as to ido, which are users of components such as software libraries.
Attributes of software that bear on the amount of resource used and the duration of such use in performing its function. ISO has eight product quality characteristics in contrast to ISO ‘s sixand 31 subcharacteristics. An external metric is a quantitative scale and measurement method, which can be used for measuring an attribute or characteristic of a software product, derived from the behaviour of the system of which it is a part.
Quality characteristics and subcharacteristics. Attributes of software that make the software adhere to standards or conventions relating to portability.
The current standard is under review. Views Read Edit View history.
The subcharacteristics have been moved from the annex to become part of the standard. List of International Electrotechnical Commission standards. Software product is defined in a broad sense: Information technology – Software Product Evaluation – Quality characteristics and guidelines for their use – Internal metrics are applicable to a non executable software product during designing and coding in early stage of development process.
Attributes of software that bear on response and processing times and on throughput rates in performances its function.
Ideally, the internal quality determines the external quality and external quality determines quality in use. An attribute is an entity which can be verified or measured in the software product.
On doing so, however, it leaves up to each organization the task of specifying precisely its own model. Attributes of software that bear on the capability to re-establish its level of performance and recover the data directly affected in case of a failure and on the time and effort needed for it.
ISO/IEC – Wikipedia
The standard provides a framework for organizations to define a quality model for a software product. An internal metric is a quantitative scale and measurement method, which can be used for measuring an attribute or characteristic of a software product, derived from the product itself, either direct or indirect it is not derived from measures of the behaviour of the system. Attributes of software that bear on the opportunity for its adaptation to different specified environments without applying other actions or means than those provided for this purpose for the software considered.
Attributes of software that bear on its ability to prevent unauthorized access, whether accidental or deliberate, to programs or iiso. Information irc – Software quality characteristics and metrics – Part 3: Information technology – Software quality characteristics and metrics – Part 2: It defines six product 91263 characteristics and in an annex provides a suggestion of quality subcharacteristics.
Quality-in-use metrics are only available when the final product is used in real conditions.
This part provides internal metrics for measuring software quality characteristics. 926-3 of software that bear on the effort needed for modification, fault removal or for environmental change. Use British English Oxford spelling kec January These biases include changing priorities after the start of a project or not having any clear definitions of “success”.
This may be done, for example, by specifying target values for quality metrics which evaluates the degree of presence of quality attributes.
Compared to”security” and “compatibility” were added as main characteristics. Attributes are not defined in the standard, as they vary between different software products. Retrieved from ” https:
