Abstract


Software is considered as a quality software or product if it meets customer satisfaction based on certain criteria or attributes as suggested in software quality assurance. This study aims to identify the current practice of software quality model adopted by software companies.  Several quality attributes are identified in software quality model to determine the importance the attribute to the software project. This research used Internet-based questionnaire and purposive sampling in getting responses from SME Company providing software solution or services. The result of the study showed that specific quality attributes quality model and suggestion for potential improvement addressed by the practioners play an important role toward the success of quality software produced.
