Software Quality Assurance

Software quality assurance is a series of planned, systematic sequential actions that enable the quality of the software produced. Usually all software development units have their own Software quality assurance (SQA) team.

This Software quality assurance (SQA) team takes care of the quality at the high end that is the overall product and at the lower order the quality is the sole responsibility of the individual who may engineer, review and test at any level.

Software quality has to be a characteristic of the software produced and thus it is designed into it rather than to be imposed later. It is the duty of every individual in the software development team that quality is maintained even before some formal quality assurance procedures are applied. This practice can improve the quality of all the software produced by the organization.
