Validating application design against specifications
A good tool provides guard rails to ensure that the important things are always done.It gives your team flexibility to produce ad hoc views and reports to better use (and explore) the data you’ve captured.Planning for verification occurs throughout the project life cycle.You’ll develop the test plan, which captures critical milestones.Defects in the product are resolved and released, and regression testing is performed.A traceability matrix is created to verify that design inputs identified in the verification test plan have been tested and passed.
Since these tests should be run on production or production equivalent units, design validation tests are often the last tests performed.This effort can also help you identify how much work is left, where you might need to add development or test staff, or when you should re-evaluate delivery schedules.Being able to link anomalies directly to a requirement improves communication between testers and developers. Generating anomalies directly from a test protocol failure means that more detail about the issue is captured.Verification can be reduced to a simple five-step process.Identify the best approach for conducting verification.
Depending on the item being verified, a test case or test suite would be run, or an inspection or analysis done to provide the required evidence.
