Static analysis is usually carried out by means of a supporting tool. The ratio of the number of failures of a given category to a given unit of measure, e. Recording the details of any incident that occurred, e. See also negative testing. Often employd for off-the-shelf software as a form of internal acceptance testing. The process of combining components or systems into larger assemblies. Beta testing is often employed as a form of external acceptance testing for off-the-shelf software in order to acquire feedback from the market.
Reports are prepared that compare the actuals to that which was planned. A factor that could result in future negative consequences; usually expressed as impact and likelihood. A requirement that specifies a function that a component or system must perform.
Reviewers 2041 be chosen to represent different viewpoints and roles in the review process. Testing that runs test cases that failed the last time they were run, in order to verify the success of corrective actions.
A black box test design technique in which test cases are designed to execute scenarios of use cases. A human action that produces an incorrect result. A tool that facilitates the recording and status tracking of incidents. An iteration is a complete development loop resulting in a release internal or external istqg an executable product, a subset of the final product under development, which grows from iteration to iteration to become the final product.
Formal testing with respect to user needs, requirements, and business processes conducted to determine whether or not a system satisfies the acceptance criteria and to enable the user, customers or other authorized entity to determine whether or not to accept the system. A software tool that translates programs expressed in a high order language into their machine language equivalents. The process of testing to determine the maintainability of a software product.
A review of a software work product by colleagues of the producer of the product glozsary the purpose of identifying defects and improvements. See also boundary value.
A reason or purpose for designing and executing a test. A document specifying the test conditions coverage items for a test item, the detailed test approach and identifying the associated high level test cases. The person involved in the review that identifies and describes anomalies in the product or project under review.
A test design technique where the experience of the tester is used to anticipate what defects might be present in the component or system under test as a result of errors made, and to design tests specifically to expose them. Acronym for Commercial Off-The-Shelf software. A step-by-step presentation by the author of a document in order to gather information and to establish a common understanding of its content. Confirmation by examination and through provision of objective evidence that the requirements for a specific intended use or application have been fulfilled.

Deviation of the component or system from its expected delivery, service or result. See also horizontal traceability, vertical traceability. A risk directly related to the test object. The degree, expressed as a percentage, to which a specified coverage item has been exercised by a test glosssary.
The process of testing to determine the performance of a software product. A scripting technique that stores test input and expected results in a table or spreadsheet, so that a single control script can execute all of the tests in the table.
For example performance may be slightly worse when performance testing tools are being used.
A test management task that deals with the activities related to periodically checking the status of a test project. A document specifying a set of test cases objective, inputs, test actions, expected results, and execution preconditions for a test item. It is a record of the test planning process. A tool that provides support to the review process. If a document can be amended only by way of formal amendment procedure, then the test basis is called a frozen test basis. A tool that provides objective measures of what structural elements, e.
The requirements are prioritized and delivered in priority order in the appropriate increment. A flaw in a component or system that can cause the component or system to fail to perform its required function, e. An environment containing hardware, instrumentation, simulators, software tools, and other support elements needed to conduct a test.

A tool that supports the creation, amendment and verification of models of the software or system [Graham]. The process of testing to determine the reliability of a software product.
In principle test cases are designed to cover each partition at least once. A test management task that deals with developing and applying a set of corrective actions to get a test project on track when monitoring shows a deviation from what was planned.
An item or event of a component or system that could be verified by one or more test cases, e.
A tool that supports operational security. Exit criteria are used to report against and to plan when to stop testing. Load generation can simulate either multiple users or high volumes of input data.
A document summarizing testing activities and results. The set of generic and specific conditions for permitting a process to go forward with a defined task, e. Testing performed to itqb defects in the interfaces and in the interactions between integrated components or systems.
An element of configuration management, consisting of the evaluation, co-ordination, approval or disapproval, and implementation of changes to configuration items after formal establishment of their configuration identification.
Testing of a previously tested program following modification 0214 ensure that defects have not been introduced or uncovered in unchanged areas of the software, as a result of the changes made.
