Book Description

This book presents an integrated technology, Design for Trustworthy Software (DFTS), to address software quality issues
upstream such that the goal of software quality becomes that of preventing bugs in implementation rather than finding
and eliminating them during and after implementation. The thrust of the technology is that major quality deployments
take place before a single line of code is written!

This customer-oriented integrated technology can help deliver breakthrough results in cost, quality, and delivery
schedule thus meeting and exceeding customer expectations. The authors describe the principles behind the technology
as well as their applications to actual software design problems. They present illustrative case studies covering various
aspects of DFTS technology including CoSQ, AHP, TRIZ, FMEA, QFD, and Taguchi Methods and provide ample questions
and exercises to test the readers understanding of the material in addition to detailed examples of the applications of
the technology.

The book can be used to impart organization-wide learning including training for DFTS Black Belts and Master Black Belts.
It helps you gain rapid mastery, so you can deploy DFTS Technology quickly and successfully.
