Abstract:

The technical report addresses the general area of computer program testing. The test program for computer programs is, in many cases, different from that for equipment due to the uniqueness of the computer program configuration item. Thus, testing concepts for computer programs are not always widely understood. This technical report attempts to clarify computer program testing requirements and procedures by considering such topics as test requirements documents and test plansproceduresreports. The concepts of informal versus formal testing are introduced, which lead to the subjects of preliminary and formal qualification testing. Subprogram, functional, and computer program configuration item levels of testing are also explained, and these ideas are in turn related to informal versus formal testing.
