An Ontological Approach to Model Software Quality Assurance Knowledge Domain

Nada O. Bajnaid, Rachid Benlamri, Algirdas Pakstas, and Shahram Salekzamankhani
Abstract—Software Quality Assurance (SQA) becomes one of the most important objectives of software development and maintenance activities, and many SQA standards have emerged as part of the Software Engineering discipline. However, despite the effort made to improve consistency and coherency among SAQ standards, still there is no single standard that covers the whole SQA knowledge area. To contribute to this effort, this paper presents a framework of an ontological model to describe and define both domain and operational knowledge of SQA. International standards (SWEBOK, IEEE, and ISO) were the main sources of the terminology and semantic relations of the proposed SQA conceptual model. Different approaches have been used to evaluate the developed SQA ontology. The ultimate goal was to develop an ontology that faithfully models the SQA discipline as practiced in the software development life cycle.

Index Terms—Domain modeling, knowledge representation, ontology, ontology evaluation, semantic web, software engineering, software quality assurance.
