The research on the software quality model and software quality evaluation model has always been a hot topic in the area of software quality assurance and assessment. A great amount of domestic and foreignresearches have been done in building software quality model and quality assessment model, and so far certainaccomplishments have been achieved in these areas. In recent years, platform building and systematization havebecome the trends of developing basic softwares based on operating systems. Therefore, the quality evaluation ofthe foundational software platform becomes an essential issue to be solved. This article analyzes and concludes thecurrent development of researches on software quality model and software quality assessment model focusing onsummarizing and depicting the developing process of quality evaluation of foundational software platform. It alsodiscusses the future development of researches on quality assessment of foundational software platform in brief, trying to establish a good foundation for it.
