SOFTWARE QUALITY MANAGEMENT FLOSS TOOLS EVALUATION

Abstract

Software Quality Management Tool (SQM) selection can be a quite challenge, as well as the precise definition of the functionalities that every tool of this kind should offer. On the other hand, establishing standards adequate to the FLOSS context, involves analyzing both commercial and proprietary software development paradigms in contrast to the FLOSS philosophy. This article presents the evaluation of 6 different tools (four proprietary and two FLOSS tools) through the application a Systemic Software Quality Model (MOSCA) instantiation according to the SQM tools context, aiming to illustrate an accurate method for selecting tools of this nature and identifying areas for improvement for each one of the evaluated tools.
