Further, understanding of the sub factors influencing the software quality is essential to any software development process as quantification of quality is based on its sub factors. The identification of factors and as well as sub factors was done on the basis of the literature survey by studying the various software quality models and by intuitive analysis. The results in the form of categorized, logical and understandable hierarchy of sub factors benefit software developers and academicians.
