The Value of Verification and Validation
A one day course on Verification and Validation (V&V) for managers, team leaders and QA specialists.
Testing is often the last resort for finding mistakes. Done poorly, many faults will still remain in the system. Simply writing more tests won’t make your software better and may result in money ineffectively spent. You must improve your development practices to get better software.
Software development is a collaborative effort. We take considerable pains to analyse, design and implement our system to meet our quality goals. Unfortunately, engineers are not perfect. Under increasing pressure to deliver more features, in less time, and as a consequence not having the luxury of time to learn the problem domain, or examine their solutions.
The solution is to adopt a balanced, multi-technique approach to V&V. Multiple, independent techniques (each playing to their own strengths) is far more effective.
