ALBO CASTRO, Mónica Ma. Foundations for the definition of a model of quality assessment for GNU / Linux Nova. Rev cuba cienc informat [online]. 2017, vol.11, n.2, pp.87-101. ISSN 2227-1899.

ABSTRACT The evolution of the software industry has established development models that allow to obtain high quality products that ensure competitiveness in the market. The quality management software has two main approaches, process quality and product quality, influencing one to in the other. Among the various software products whose quality can be critical for use are the operating systems, GNU/Linux distributions are a variant that have served as solution for countries with fewer resources. The University of Informatics Science has created a GNU/Linux distribution that could replace privative platforms to contribute to the process of migration to free software that has been promoting the country for several years.  For his development currently has a methodology, where quality management has an open definition on how to ensure product quality and has discipline of tests that verifies and validates the defined requirements, however, it does not have a procedure that evaluates the quality of products. This paper proposes the elements that should include an evaluation model of product quality for the GNU/Linux Nova distribution from the study of international quality standards, quality models for free software and the particularities of this type of product.
