This chapter introduces the generally accepted knowledge on software quality that has been included in the (SWEBOK) Software Engineering Body of Knowledge (ISOTR19759-05). One chapter of the SWEBOK is dedicated to software quality (Apr05). It argues that ethics play an important role in applying the quality models and the notions of cost of quality for software engineers. It also describes the minimal content required in a software quality assurance plan. Finally an overview of what to expect in the upcoming international standards on software quality requirements, which transcend the life cycle processes of all IT processes, is presented.
