Authors: Mario R. Barbacci, Robert J. Ellison, Anthony J. Lattanze, Judith A. Stafford, Charles B. Weinstock, William G. Wood

This report clarifies the context in which a QAW (Quality Attribute Workshop) is applicable, provides a rationale for developing the process and describes it in detail, and concludes with a list of lessons learned and a discussion of how these lessons have helped evolve the process to its current state.

May 2002 - White Paper Issues in Predicting the Reliability of Components

Authors: John McGregor, Judith A. Stafford

This whitepaper presents the design of an experiment that forms the basis of a reliability prediction-enabled component technology (PECT). It also discusses aspects of models that need to be adapted and how they affect the design of the experiment.

April 2002 - White Paper Is Third Party Certification Necessary?

Authors: Judith A. Stafford, Kurt C. Wallnau
