Software verification and validation - a practitioner's guide

  title={Software verification and validation - a practitioner's guide},
  author={Steven R. Rakitin},
From the Publisher: If you're a software quality professional, but lack formal training in software quality assurance, this practical reference will fill in the gaps. Based on the principles of continuous process improvement, this book offers practical solutions for performing verification and validation tasks throughout the entire software development life cycle. This logically organized book supplies common-sense techniques and up-to-date information that helps your organization produce… 


SQA and V&V can be used to evaluate the intermediate products and the final product, and can be applied to user documentation, which is best developed together with code and can often force issues regarding requirements and code.

The Role of Software Verification and Validation in Software Development Process

The role of Verification and Validation (V&V), which goes beyond the role of QA and Testing, in different phases of the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC), is described and the current state of practice for V&V is described.

Improving software quality and management through use of service level agreements

This dissertation proposes that SLAs be used in software acquisition to support quality and process control throughout the lifecycle (requirements engineering through post-production support) of a software-intensive system.

Verification and Validation People Can Be More Than Technical Advisors

V&V is used as a convenience, even if a reader prefers use of the term Independent V&V (IV&V), and its relationship with other groups is provided, and how V&Vs can help in non-technical project areas is addressed.

Software Testing & Diagnostics: Theory & Practice

The introduction into the field of software testing, automated software testing and diagnostics will be given together with explanation of fundamental terminology. The viewpoint of quality theory

Managing the maintenance of ported, outsourced, and legacy software via orthogonal defect classification

A method to analyze the information contained in the form of defect data and arrive at technical actions to address explicit product and process weaknesses which can be feasibly addressed in the current effort is described.

A Thesis for the Degree of Master Generating Test Cases from UML Activity Diagrams

This work proposes an I/O Explicit Activity Diagram which is reconstructed from UML activity diagrams which is transformed into a directed graph which is the central conceptual tool of testing.

Inception of Software Validation and Verification Practices within CMMI Level 2

This PhD thesis will propose one approach to conciliate validation and verification practices with of CMMI maturity level 2 and by adopting ISO/IEC 29119 standard to fulfill a product lifecycle perspective.

Software Quality model Analysis Program

The solution developed is called the quality model analysis program (QAP) and is a fuzzy system that weights the proposed model attributes according to certain rules that enables software project managers to better utilize their resources and take specific actions to better improve the quality of the software produced.
