Abstract:

This document reports an investigation into the processes involved in functional testing. The objective was to determine criteria by means of which the process can be quantified and hence controlled. The report demonstrates that insufficient knowledge about functionality exists for general metrics to be constructed. Indeed it clearly indicates that any method dependent on a knowledge of functionality is unlikely, except in special application areas, to be successful. Keywords Functional testing Requirements analysis Design methods Software functions Testing methods.
