The Qualitheque

Duration

Theme

The Qualitheque was a sequel project  to the IT Design Quality - paradigmatic form and function project. The latter project never accomplished the intended style theory of paradigmatic examples (i.e. exemplars). So, we draw the conclusion that we had to return to the power of examples in themselves.

The Qualitheque was designed to be a web site for descriptions, based on the project's quality-in-use model, of systems in use. These descriptions were meant to constitute a universal repository for debate, learning, impression, and inspiration. Through the power of examples, the design ability and skill of systems developers could be enhanced.

The project thus built a html as well as a pure Java web site to house and display the repository. There was an editorial board which accepted descriptions and presentations according to the quality-in-use model and style guide of the Qualitheque. When the contribution was considered of enough quality it was added to the Qualitheque and thus accessible for the world.

To attract  attention and contributions the Qualitheque was supposed to yield academic credits and reputation. Also, the objective was to achieve a collection of exemplary designs. Thus, a contribution competition and award ceremony was planned. For the award panel several well-known and established academics and professionals were engaged.

Unfortunately, the Qualitheque never really took off as planned. To design and  "package" a contribution required much work with questionable benefits for the authors. Eventually the Qualitheque died a slow death with only five contributions published.
