Markets are continually demanding smarter products and systems, which in turn leads to more complexity in those products and systems. Whilst advanced functionality is an important competitive differentiator, quality has become part of the ‘price of entry’ to the marketplace. Quality isn’t an attribute that can be tested into products at the end of the development lifecycle, it's a guiding principle that drives all stages of the lifecycle from concept through analysis, design, deployment and acceptance, then through service and finally end-of-life retirement. The management of quality must therefore take account of all key systems engineering disciplines, including requirements engineering, systems design and testing, and change and configuration management. This white paper looks at approaches for effectively integrating quality management into lifecycle activities and the potential benefits this can deliver for project outcomes.
