Design For Trustworthy Software. ASQ 2007 CROSBY MEDAL WINNER! An Integrated Technology for Delivering Better Software—Cheaper and Faster! This book presents an integrated technology, Design for Trustworthy Software (DFTS), to address software quality issues upstream such that the goal of software quality becomes that of preventing bugs in implementation rather than finding and eliminating them during and after implementation. The thrust of the technology is that major quality deployments take place before a single line of code is written! This customer-oriented integrated technology can help deliver breakthrough results in cost, quality, and delivery schedule thus meeting and exceeding customer expectations. The authors describe the principles behind the technology as well as their applications to actual software design problems. They present illustrative case studies covering various aspects of DFTS technology including CoSQ, AHP, TRIZ, FMEA, QFD, and Taguchi Methods and provide ample questions and exercises to test the readers understanding of the material in addition to detailed examples of the applications of the technology. The book can be used to impart organization-wide learning including training for DFTS Black Belts and Master Black Belts. It helps you gain rapid mastery, so you can deploy DFTS Technology quickly and successfully. Learn how to • Plan, build, maintain, and improve your trustworthy software development system • Adapt best practices of quality, leadership, learning, and management for the unique software development milieu • Listen to the customer’s voice, then guide user expectations to realizable, reliable software products • Refocus on customer-centered issues such as reliability, dependability, availability, and upgradeability • Encourage greater design creativity and innovation • Validate, verify, test, evaluate, integrate, and maintain software for trustworthiness • Analyze the financial impact of software quality • Prepare your leadership and infrastructure for DFTS Design for Trustworthy Software will help you improve quality whether you develop in-house, outsource, consult, or provide support. It offers breakthrough solutions for the entire spectrum of software and quality professionals—from developers to project leaders, chief software architects to customers. The American Society for Quality (ASQ)is the world's leading authority on quality which provides a community that advances learning, quality improvement, and knowledge exchange to improve business results, and to create better workplaces and communities worldwide.The Crosby Medalis presented to the individual who has authored a distinguished book contributing significantly to the extension of the philosophy and application of the principles, methods, or techniques of quality management.

Constructing Blueprints For Enterprise It Architectures. "This book is the answer to hundreds of CIOs who have asked me how IT can be used to disrupt their market and change the rules of competition. If you live in a hypercompetitive world, CIOs will find this book an invaluable resource." -Richard A. D'Aveni, author of Hypercompetition "I wish Bernie Boar had written this book 20 years ago. And I wish every IT manager and architect had read it and placed his hand on it and sworn by it 20 years ago. Then we wouldn't be in the pickle we find ourselves in today!" -John A. Zachman Constructing Blueprints for Enterprise IT Architectures Recently deployed within a unit at AT&T, Enterprise IT Architecture Blueprinting (EAB) lets you blueprint your system designs with a degree of precision long taken for granted by engineers and architects. In fact, it's the first standardized methodology of its kind. In this book, expert Bernard Boar introduces you to the principles behind EAB and all of its features by walking through the entire design process for developing conceptual, functional, logical, and physical blueprints complete with useful icons, diagrams, and page templates. This valuable guide also defines: * Why blueprinting is an imperative strategy to cope with hypercompetitive business environments in the information age * An accessible vocabulary, rational rules, and clear-cut graphics standards * How to create a set of functional specifications and how they interrelate with diagrams * How to integrate multiple drawings * How to package the finished blueprint * How to design infrastructure and application architectures for extreme maneuverability and maximum flexibility * How to implement blueprinting within your environment and overcome potential obstacles The companion Web site located at www.wiley.com/compbooks/boar gives you: * Sample checklists and blueprint templates that you can customize and reuse

Microsoft Rising And Other Tales Of Silicon Valley. Ted Lewis delivers a first-hand account of the changing computer industry, a story of Microsoft and the Silicon Valley. Lewis maps the history of computing from 1990 to 2000, a tale of greed and emotion in the fastest growing, mainline industry of the world. In this compilation of columns from Computer, IEEE Internet Computing, and Scientific American, Lewis tries to predict and explain the chaos of Silicon Valley. This book reports the author's personal history through the early 1990's to the end of the decade. These stories often try to predict or explain the chaos of Silicon Valley. Lewis analyzes the high-technology industry and its constant change amid turmoil and upheaval. He also examines the art of software development and deals with innovation and the emergence of a techno-society. The book does not promise any answers, but rather concludes this short journey into the recent past with a number of provoking ideas about the future of hi-tech.
