Many software teams struggle to implement and comply with quality processes. Adoption and strict adherence to process is seen as stifling, blocking innovation and redundant.
Contrast this with semiconductor fabrication plants (fabs) where adherence to process is the everyday norm and no fab engineer feels compliance with quality processes is optional.
Studying the top reasons why the fab world follows process so diligently reveals some underlying principles that can be applied to the software development world. Applying these ideas, software companies can improve the ability to implement and adhere to quality processes.
