This is the decade of software quality. In the 1980s we focused on trying to increase productivity; in the 1990s we strive to create higher quality products. Quality is not about user satisfaction, product conformance, or costs and schedules-nor is it solely about defects. Instead, there is a well defined, intuitive relationship between quality and those other product traits, one that clearly distinguishes among them.
