Watts Humphrey 1927-2010

Watts Humphrey, founder of the Software Process Program at the Carnegie Mellon Software Engineering Institute (SEI) and recipient of the National Medal of Technology, died Thursday at his home in Sarasota, Florida. He was 83.

Known as the "Father of Software Quality" Humphrey dedicated the majority of his career to addressing problems in software development including schedule delays, cost increases, performance problems, and defects. Humphrey joined the SEI in 1986, after making what he described as an "outrageous commitment to change the world of software engineering."
