The goal of Quality Engineering is to ensure that the software you build satisfies the needs and expectations of your customers and stakeholders. It involves several methods, tools, and tactics to prevent errors and enhance overall software quality. This comprises critical steps such as requirements analysis, software design, and development, testing, and maintenance. The objective is to design software that is dependable, simple to use, safe, and efficient, and that truly meets the needs of end users. To do this, Quality Engineers collaborate closely with developers, product managers, and other key stakeholders throughout the software development process to ensure that the final product is of the highest quality and achieves all business objectives.
Capgemini's analysis on Quality Engineering, (World Quality Report 2022-23) 72% of organizations think Quality Engineering can contribute to the environmental aspect of sustainability and highlights 85% of organizations consider Quality Engineering to be pivotal in the implementation of emerging technologies into real-world use cases.
By discovering and correcting flaws before they reach the end user, Quality Engineering helps to lower the expense of poor quality. This saves money on warranty claims, recalls, and other expenditures involved with resolving defects after the product is released. Additionally, Quality Engineering gives firms a competitive edge by proving quality and delivering products that satisfy consumer expectations. This helps the company stand out from its competition.
Adopting high-quality engineering may help a business in many ways, such as:
- Greater customer satisfaction: Good engineering processes assist to make sure that goods and services fulfill the needs and requirements of customers.
- Enhanced efficiency: Quality engineering helps to reduce defect rates and streamline processes, which results in heightened production and efficiency. Defects are found and fixed early in the development process.
- Improved risk management: QE assists in identifying and mitigating possible hazards before they develop into major issues, lowering the possibility of expensive failures or downtime.
- Lower expenses: By identifying and repairing errors early in the development process, quality engineering may assist to lower costs, which can be up to 100 times more expensive when problems need to be fixed.

The DevOps Journey: Organizations implementing DevOps and Continuous Delivery practices understand testing often and getting quicker feedback is key to a successful DevOps implementation. But as organizations seek to improve their product quality and delivery speed, having the ability to predict quality and performance issues before they occur would help organizations concentrate their efforts on improving other areas of the CI/CD pipeline.
Regression Testing 101: Selective retesting to detect faults introduced during modification of a system or software component, to verify that modifications have not caused unintended adverse effects, or to verify that a modified system or software component still meets its specified requirements.
“...a testing process which is applied after a program is modified.”

The two formulae that led the physicists understand the beyond and have ruled innovations in a vast number of areas are:
- f = ma
The formulae that will transform the world of Quality Engineering the way we know it and drive innovation well into the future are below.
How you ask? Simple. Let us start with Q=DT2
Metrics is a very delicate subject at most enterprises I have worked with and within. It is often thought of as a fact-finding or worse faultfinding exercise by the teams that report the data. But then, if you really think about it, How would you measure something you do not track and how do you analyze something you don’t even measure and most importantly how do you improve if you don’t begin to understand what went right or wrong?
In a fast paced environment, it is very important to have Continuous Delivery as the theme to deliver your releases as customers demand and also with the highest levels of quality. To get to continuous delivery continuous development and continuous testing backed by continuous integration are a first step. To achieve continuous development and testing, In this note we use Business Driven testing which is a piece of the larger methodology by Qentelli called Quality Driven Development, as the key first step. Let us now take a look at what it entails.
