The practical guide to evaluating and improving the quality of mission-critical software.

Large software systems will never be perfect, but decision makers need better ways to evaluate and enhance software quality—especially where software is mission critical or used in life-or-death environments. Solid Software presents realistic techniques for analyzing and improving the quality and robustness of any software system or software-intensive product.

Solid Software isn't theoretical: it's a relentlessly practical decision maker's guide to making intelligent, responsible trade-offs that lead to the best software at the best cost.

  • Understand what levels of quality are reasonable to expect at every stage of the software life cycle, including development, deployment, and maintenance
  • Discover the key "design leverage points" that lead to robust software
  • Learn sophisticated new ways to predict software quality and assess systems in production
  • Make the most of hazard analysis, testing, design analysis, reviews, static code analysis, and other techniques
  • Choose the best tools—and use them more effectively

Solid Software draws upon dozens of real-world examples, based on the authors' extensive experience as software quality consultants, and interviews with key software decision makers worldwide. Whether you're a developer, project manager, architect, executive, manager, or regulator, it's your single source for improving software quality—in the real world.
