Is Quality Assurance A Discipline

This is a very important question to consider and, unfortunately, it has been my experience that this is the one question that the practitioners of QA often fail to even ask, much less attempt to answer. In short, a discipline generally tries to look for and exploit regularities in the area of its expertise. We use our disciplines to develop theories to capture and summarize reality, to make predictions, and to guide further actions or research. We share strategies, including observation and experimentation techniques, as well as the statistical analysis of results. This allows the discipline to provide a foundation for practitioners. While there may be differences in focus, skill level, and maturity, we should not allow this to cause us to overlook similarities in assumptions, outlooks, and methods.
