Software legend Capers Jones reveals the tight links between software quality, ROI, and TCO, and help you optimize all three
&--Strong empirical evidence that high quality generates strongly positive ROI and reduced TCO.
&--Practical ways to prevent defects, and remove them in pre-test, test, and postrelease.
&--Easy checklists for assessing and improving practice, plus insights into the costs/benefits of intervention.
&--By renowned software consultant Capers Jones. In this book, world-renowned software management expert Capers Jones and software quality guru Jitendra Subramanyam help development leaders and practitioners quantify and optimize the economic impact of quality throughout the software lifecycle - and then choose the highest value interventions to improve it. The authors introduce powerful empirical and field data on the ability of inspection, static analysis, and test methods to reduce up to 95% of defects, and discuss the business value of improvements of this magnitude.

Jones and Curtis bring together crucial new information on:
&--Identifying and fixing the root causes of short- and long-term software cost inefficiencies.
&--Predicting and measuring software defects and their quality impacts.
&--Assessing current practices and identifying the best interventions.
&--Calculating the ROI of quality during development and maintenance.
&--Comparing and choosing methods of defect prevention.
&--Selecting methods of defect removal, such as inspections and static analysis.
&--Understanding and evaluating more than 20 kinds of software testing.
&--Best practices for postrelease defect reporting and repa
