Verification and Validation of Modern Software-intensive Systems
As software becomes increasingly complex, verification and validation becomes more important than ever. But traditional "V&V" methods don't always work well with today's object-oriented, RAD, client/server and Web-based application projects. In this book, two of the world's leading software quality experts provide the first blueprint for V&V that reflects today's realities.KEY TOPICS: Start with a look at the fundamentals of V&V, and the fundamental tools and methodologies underlying most V&V efforts. Learn how to evaluate specifications and other interim development documents to ensure that the correct systems are being built; and how to use metrics effectively in today's software environments. Discover how to apply V&V to object-oriented systems, RAD, and usability testing -- and how to scale V&V for small-scale, medium-scale, and large-scale projects. Discover how V&V can be integrated into the SEI Capability Maturity Model and other software quality models; what V&V means for project managers and risk managers; and the role of Integrated Product Teams (IPTs). Finally, review the latest advances on V&V in software-intensive systems.MARKET: All software quality professionals, as well as managers and customers concerned with software quality issues.
