A process-integrated approach to defect prevention

by C. L. Jones
Recent efforts to improve quality in software have concentrated on defect detection. This paper presents a programming process methodology for using causal analysis and feedback as a means for achieving quality improvements and ultimately defect prevention. The methodology emphasizes effective utilization of all error data to prevent the recurrence of defects.
