Standards and Procedures

Establishing standards and procedures for software development is critical, since these provide the framework from which the software evolves. Standards are the established criteria to which the software products are compared. Procedures are the established criteria to which the development and control processes are compared. Standards and procedures establish the prescribed methods for developing software; the SQA role is to ensure their existence and adequacy. Proper documentation of standards and procedures is necessary since the SQA activities of process monitoring, product evaluation, and auditing rely upon definitions to measure project compliance.

General Principles of Testing

Here are some principles of software testing and i have tried to explain in brief about these

Testing can find  defects but cant guarantee no defects

Testing can show that defects are present, but cannot prove that there are no defects. Testing reduces the probability of undiscovered defects remaining in the software but, even if no defects are found, it is not a proof of correctness. Read more…

IU Test

IU Test refers to installation , uninstallation  test of software products or units. It is a part of software quality assurance (QA or SQA). During this test software is tested with numerous installations and uninstallations to verify that the product is unistalled and unistalled correctly. This test is done to verify every files specified  are copied to or removed from the targeted folder of the server. This test is carried out by further steps

Importance of software testing

A small step in assuring software quality can save a lot of  money and time that is wasted due to negligence in software testing. Each and every one  involved in software development should be conscious of software testing and to ensure quality software, testing is very important .We know the fact that software is  developed by humans, also we know “humans are prone to errors”. These errors done by humans lead to faulty operation by software in operational use, which is in turn results into a failure, so software testing is aimed at making sure the software product meets its predefined goals with no errors or least possible errors that can be tolerated.

Software Testing

Software testing is the process of investigating a program or application with the intent of finding software bugs (errors or other defects) so that the correctness, completeness, security ie overall quality of product is detected.

Depending on the testing method employed, can be implemented at any time in the development process. However, most of the test effort occurs after the requirements have been defined and the coding process has been completed.

What is software quality assurance ?

Software Quality Assurance (SQA) is defined as a planned and systematic approach to the evaluation of the quality of and adherence( Faithful attachment; devotion) to software product standards, processes, and procedures. SQA includes the process of assuring that standards and procedures are established and are followed throughout the software acquisition life cycle. Compliance with agreed-upon standards and procedures is evaluated through process monitoring, product evaluation, and audits. Read more…
