This post was written for dev teams who do not have a dedicated QA manager or the like.
WhySo why should you do a product quality rating? It will give you an indication of how well the product is engineered in a more holistic perspective. Many will judge the quality of the product based on what end users say about the product. While end user feedback is a very important indicator of quality or value, the product may still have many issues underneath the covers that are just waiting to blow up and become a big issue for the user or other sides of the business.
This product quality review helps to get a complete overview of the product and its strengths and weaknesses. It helps to plan ahead and reduce risk.
HowThe rating can be conducted by the product development team, perhaps in collaboration with others such as internal users and other stakeholders. As several of these categories are only known to the dev-team this rating cannot be done by customers or other external stakeholders.
A score from 0 to 10 can be given where 10 would be the score that the best product on the market would receive in that category.
