In the absence of a well-defined development process and a set of objective metrics, subjective data can be used to assess the quality of a software release. This assessment can identify and characterize development risk, focus testing and validation efforts, and indicate where and how process management should be improved. The OpenVMS Engineering organization has developed a questionnaire, a set of quality indicators, and a data reduction methodology that implement such an assessment. This
