Other software qualities

In this dissertation, we focused on implementability and later validity as interesting software qualities for which causal relationships can be established and belief values can be determined. We believe, however, that uncertainty should also be modeled for additional software qualities, including, among others, correctness, reliability, efficiency, safety, and maintainability. Of particular relevance is the work carried out at CSR, discussed in chapter gif, where uncertainty is modeled for software testability and dependability assessment tasks. As mentioned earlier, qualities associated with entities must be consistent with causal relationships such that the resulting network is meaningful.
