ARE PROGRAMMERS SPECIAL QUALITY ASSURANCE MANAGERS?

Can a software engineer be a Quality Assurance Manager?  Quality Assurance is a management task.

To find out, let us look at the beginning of all Quality Assurance programs; i.e., the Deming Cycle.

The Deming Cycle, first used in Japan in 1947, consists of the following four steps.

The first Deming Cycle Step is “make a plan”. The second Deming Cycle Step is “do the plan”.

The third Deming Cycle Step is “check the results”. The four Deming Cycle Step is “change the plan if needed”.

The Deming Cycle appears to be a concise definition of common sense!

Would you believe it if I told you that all programmers are Quality Assurance Managers?

No! Then would you believe it if I told you that a computer program is a Deming Plan?

A computer program is a Deming Plan to be done at the client’s site by a computer, not by a person.

Most Programmers do not understand that they are very special Quality Assurance Managers.

WHATIFWE required our programmers to be special Quality Managers? Would this be a terrible inconvenience?
