Cleanroom Process Model
March/April 1994 (vol. 11 no. 2)
pp. 50-58

Cleanroom software engineering is a team-oriented process that makes development more manageable and predictable because it is done under statistical quality control. The philosophy behind cleanroom software engineering is to avoid dependence on costly defect-removal processes by writing code increments right the first time and verifying their correctness before testing. Its process model incorporates the statistical quality certification of code increments as they accumulate into a system.
