SQRL - Software Quality Research Laboratory

Browse by


The Software Quality Research Laboratory (SQRL) was a research centre - at the University of Limerick, Ireland. With the generous support of Science Foundation Ireland (SFI), the SQRL team conducted fundamental research in support of professional software developers, intended to develop methods and tools that could be used to improve the quality of industrially developed software. Critical to the success of the project is the experimental use of these tools and methods for the assessment of software products.

The tools and methods developed by SQRL were tested by documenting and assessing industrial products. Industry cooperation is also intended to educate industrial personnel about research results, while improving SQRL researchers understanding of industrial needs.

The SQRL team was led by Professor David Lorge Parnas, of the Department of Computer Science and Information Systems (CSIS) at the University of Limerick. SQRL was located in the CSIS building at the main entrance in the University of Limerick.
