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.
IEEE Std 1059 1993 IEEE Guide for Software Verification and Validation Plans
Suitable for software quality assurance professionals, software engineers, project managers and senior managers, this book is a concise and practical introduction to the basic principles of effective software verification and validation (V&V). This new edition has been thoroughly revised and includes five new chapters and five new appendices focused on management techniques to make your company's software V& V efforts more cost-effective. For Managers, you learn how to help your organization create more accurate estimates and schedules. For practitioners, you learn fundamental software verification and validation practices such as the formal inspection process, configuration management, effective testing techniques, and how to use measurements to drive further process improvements.
This work began when I was appointed as a Technical Director for Modeling and Simulation (M&S) Verification and Validation (V&V) for a major defense system in 2008. It is intended to provide the nuts and bolts of performing M&S V&V in one volume. It is not intended to provide a holistic approach to M&S V&V, as that can be derived from other sources. As such, this book assumes a basic understanding of V&V, including its place in the lifecycle, its purpose and its scope for ensuring the quality of models and simulations. During the process of developing this text, the Simulation Interoperability Standards Organization (SISO) completed SISO-GUIDE-001.2-2013, Guide for Generic Methodology for Verification and Validation (GM-VV) to Support Acceptance of Models, Simulations, and Data, 2 Volumes, June 2013. The guide does serve the purpose not covered by this book. This text provides procedural details for performing V&V. The procedures are static, dynamic and informal.
Guide to Software Engineering Standards and Specifications
This directory presents an overview of 300 software development standards, guides, and technical reports. The book contains extensive information on all the existing standards, what they contain, how they are used, when to apply them, and where to obtain copies.
Comprehensive and up-to-date, it covers the most vital part of software development, independent verification and validation. Presents a variety of methods that will ensure better quality, performance, cost and reliability of technical products and systems. Features numerous hints, tips and instructions for better interaction between verification and validation personnel, development engineers and managers. Includes 8 case histories ranging from major engineering systems through information systems. Many of the principles involved also apply to computer hardware as well as the fields of science and engineering.
