Book Description

Of all the audit functions faced by QA, software auditing is probably the most difficult because of the need to know and understand the intricacies of the processes being audited. In addition, auditors must be familiar with and understand the implications of the international and national standards and know how to proceed when deficiencies are revealed. Howard Garston Smith is Software Quality Assurance Auditor for Pfizer, UK, and brings twenty years of expertise in software development and auditing to this incredibly detailed manual. He provides the "what to" and the "how to" of software QA auditing in a clear and practical style that guarantees effective software quality audits.
