Abstract:

This thesis investigates the trends of thought and actual practices of commercial computer companies in the area of software quality assurance. This is done to see if any of these practices could be utilized in the Fleet Material Support Office FMSO environment. This was accomplished by personal interview of software quality assurance personnel in a few randomly selected computer companies and comparing their quality assurance programs to that of FMSO. The following companies were selected 1 International Business Machines IBM Corporation, 2 TRW Incorporated 3 Hewlett Packard Company 4 Amdahl Corporation and 5 Software Research Associates SRA. Results indicate that the greatest differences between the commercial world and the FMSO environment are in managements view of what role or function a quality assurance group should take, staff as compared to line, and this groups interface with the software design and development personnel.
