In the context of an ERDF-funded project portfolio, we have carried out a survey to assess the state-of-the-practice in software quality in Belgian companies. With this survey, we wish to find out what are the most common industry practices (processes, techniques and tools) with respect to software quality, and how these practices vary across companies. Companies could use the results of this study to improve upon their current software quality practices compared to other companies. Researchers could use it to develop better techniques and tools for aspects that have not found sufficient take-up by industry. Teachers may use it to adapt their courses to become more directly relevant to industry practices.
