This procedure ensures that the product is tested thoroughly before being introduced to the market.

A Software Quality Assurance engineer should understand how a user will behave and anticipate the actions that a user will perform on the software that is being developed. This strengthens the capabilities of the software and equips the consumer with a quality product/service.

Successful software quality assurance engineers have a broad understanding of computer systems and software standards, are detail-oriented and adept at anticipating user behavior and solving problems efficiently and creatively, says the Princeton Review.
