In today’s software development era, one major step is considered to be very crucial. It is the “guaranteed quality of the final product”. Quality Assurance is a vital step in software development procedure as it ensures that there are no defects or bugs in the final product. Even if the software is developed with maximum care by the programmers/developers, there are major chances of some bugs, routine issues or defects in it. QA helps safeguard the final product from breaches or potential problems that users may have.
But the question is what are these bugs and how they occur? Let us look at some of the points being the reason for bugs in software development.
Quality assurance is the way of assuring the quality of the software by making it bug-free. It involves a set of activities that includes some processes, procedures, standards and correct implementation. These activities are estimated through process monitoring, product evaluation, audits and a number of testings. Where:
Standards are the set benchmark to which the software products are compared.
Procedures are the set benchmark to which the development and control processes are compared.
Developing software incorporates risks, both technical and programmatic. These risks hold back the website/software from performing better. Quality Assurance plays the role here, it reduces the risks. Hence it is a mandatory process for assuring the quality in both the workflow and in the end product. If this process is skipped, then there are chances of getting a corrupted and unacceptable end product that may cause bad impact on your business.
Quality Assurance undergoes some stages called Software Development LifeCycle (SDLC). This is followed by Designing, Development, Testing, and Maintenance. Quality Assurance Engineers are involved in every stage of the SDLC. They parallelly monitor the system to make sure that it runs smoothly without any abnormality.
Below are some measures of Quality Assurance, often called PDCA, in which;
Quality Assurance brings value to the project as well as the whole company.
Let us explore the benefits of QA:
Quality Assurance is the collection of activities that checks if the actual results match the standard results and a process that ensures whether a software system is an error-free system. QA was previously ignored by the companies, as their major concern was to release the end product and generate revenue. But, Quality assurance is a significant part of software development and Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC). It increases the Return on Investment (RoI) with increased percentages.
Quality Assurance ensures higher standards in development as well as in delivered products. This results in maintaining the old customers and generating new ones.
