Track: Quality Aspects of Human-Factors in Software Engineering



Software quality is strongly influenced by human and social factors. From the perspective of users, human and psychological factors influence how quality is understood and perceived. What qualities are important depends on both objective and subjective assessments by users. On other hand, the extent to which important qualities are achieved depends crucially on human and psychological factors among software development professionals, including requirements engineers, software architects, software developers, software testers, and people working in other roles during the software life-cycle. An understanding of how human factors play into the interpretation and realisation of quality on both the sides of software use and development is important to advance the field towards better software.
