P. Haindl, R. Plösch: Towards Continuous Quality: Measuring and Evaluating Feature-Dependent Non-Functional Requirements in DevOps, 5th International Workshop on Quality-Aware DevOps (QUDOS 2019), March 26, Hamburg,Germany, 2019, accepted for publication.
Specifically in the context of continuous quality engineering it is vital that software quality models can be operationalized and seamlessly integrated in the toolchains of the projects. Also, to effectively direct engineering efforts in DevOps to ascertain the quality of the most frequently used features it is necessary to specify, measure and evaluate non-functional requirements on the level of individual software features. Current software quality models lack thorough operationalization and require human interventions such as collecting static and operational measures from the different systems or evaluating the fulfillment of feature-dependent non-functional requirements. In this paper we present our planned contribution to these challenges as an operationalizable quality model to measure, assess and evaluate feature-dependent software quality characteristics throughout common DevOps toolchains.
