Eight common misconceptions of software quality are examined and refuted. The concept of cleanroom engineering of software is introduced. Cleanroom engineering achieves intellectual control by applying rigorous, mathematics-based engineering practices, establishes an errors-are-unacceptable attitude and a team responsibility for quality, delegates development and testing responsibilities to separate teams, and certifies the software's mean time to failure through the application of statistical quality-control methods. A typical project is used to explain the concepts and procedures.<>
