Abstract:

MITRE carried out a Software Quality Assurance SQA effort for the Groundwave Emergency Networks Thin Line Connectivity Capability system during the early period of its development. The process included desktop analyses, simulations, and execution of the major portions of the software leading to formal qualification testing by the contractor. As a result, the contractor was alerted to potential omissions and incorrect implementations of the software, culminating in a final implementation that was essentially error-free. An important lesson learned from this type of effort is the need for early and thorough involvement of and interaction between contractor and SQA personnel.
