Abstract: Quality assurance has always been a major concern for software engineers. While a lot of work has been devoted to technical quality assurance aspects, its economics have rarely been addressed. This is remarkable in the light of the current endeavor of the software industry to learn from more mature industries and to adapt their ‘lean’ and process improvement philosophies. We advance this debate by proposing a decision support scheme. It facilitates the selection and prioritization of quality assurance activities for improvement initiatives. The prioritizing order is based on the expected quality gains in terms of reduced number of defects in the software product. Our scheme supports managers in their decision process, as shown in three industrial case studies. It can be instantiated with low data-collection effort because it makes use of calibration data and model characteristics of COQUALMO.
