Continuous quality control counters this decay through an orchestrated application of constructive and analytic quality assurance techniques. The Continuous Quality Assessment Toolkit ConQAT provides the tool-support required enacting continuous quality control in practice. It supports the rapid design and configuration of quality dashboards that integrate diverse quality analysis methods and tools. The dashboards come with a set of interactive tools that support the in-depth inspection of identified quality defects and help to prevent the introduction of further deficiencies. To cope with the diversity of real-world software systems, ConQAT is not limited to the analysis of source code but takes into account various types of other development artifacts like models or textual specifications. Through its flexible architecture, ConQAT can be customized to address the quality requirements that are truly relevant for a software project. Thereby, it helps to successfully counter quality decay of software systems.
