Tanya,

I wish the best in implementing SPC for software quality. I hope you can achieve great success using it. However, there are other approaches you might consider. I've been reading recently that single occurrences of human errors tend to be rare and intermittent. They are often thought of as "common causes" of variation, and not easily managed using control charts.

My suspicion is that even though single occurrences are rare that as a
group human errors are a significant source of defects in designing software. Hewlett-Packard and Motorola are using a technique developed in Japanese manufacturing (poka-yoke) to deal with software development errors. (It can be used in concert with SPC.) A paper written by an HP systems engineer on this topic is available at:

While this suggestion is not exactly what you asked for, I hope you'll find it of interest.
