Design Develop and Execute Function and System Test Cases


Designed for engineering and quality assurance professionals who require experience with state-of-the-practice software test methodologies and tools. In addition to experience with functional and structural test design and development, you learn about reliability and regression test methods and tools. The workshop includes several hands-on exercises to increase software development productivity (lower defect densities) and improve product quality (customer satisfaction).

Project teams are recommended to participate and learn how to reduce the high cost associated with testing. This includes discussion and work with verification and validation (testing) across the entire development life-cycle. Lab exercises demonstrate how to push code past the typical test coverage barrier of approximately 30 percent. A glossary of terms, tools, methods and processes for the software engineering project team is provided for process definition. Also, discussion includes use of MS Project for project planning, estimating, and scheduling.

Now that there are hundreds of test development and execution tools available, it's critical to have a well defined V&V strategy and methodology. Topics covered in this course include:


  • Technical reviews and inspections (fspecs, design, code and test)
