Presentation: Testing is usually the preferred verification method but it is expensive. Real-world case studies, practical advice, and emerging trends of requirements verification to show the relationship between financial constraints and confidence needs applied to a program will be discussed. Requirements testing can be viewed as “confidence per dollars”; that is, for every dollar spent, how much confidence is gained that the system is performing as required? It’s an important question, the goal being to maximize the amount of confidence in a system while staying within financial constraints. How verification relates to test event planning will also be discussed. Bill will also present why “tight traceability”, in which the sum of the requirements equals the whole system, is a critical concept in large-scale system development where requirements number in the thousands.
