The definition of software quality is always debatable. Sometimes, the quality cannot be defined and some other times, it can be defined, but only on a particular context. Or sometimes, suggestions comes up like, ‘quality is nothing but the absence of bugs’.
In order to ensure software quality, we undertake Software Quality Assurance and Software Quality Control.
