What If We Programmable Software Development Environment contains a Monte-Carlo Test
capability that can greatly facilitate the
integration of software test into all levels of a software
development project. Software Modules and Kits can be easily
tested for not only proper operation but also resistance to programming
errors relative to their use.
the modules (subroutines, functions, classes, etc) that make up the
software product can greatly improve the effectiveness of the overall
test effort. The module is less complex than the product and
hence can be more thoroughly tested. This will greatly reduce the
total number of tests needed to produce a quality product.
can be designed with methods that are resistant to programming errors
relative to their use. These errors are detected when the
executable is prepared (compiled and linked). Consequently, it is
quite costly to quantitatively evaluate programming error resistance
capability of a module. A unique test program will need to be
developed for each unique test condition.
The What If We Programmable Test System was
designed to rapidly:
Prepare a test program to subject the module
to a unique test sequence
Prepare the associated executable test
program (compile and link).
Execute the test module.
sequences are prepared randomly
(Monte-Carlo) from a set of defining rules
which can include programming errors that
should be detectable during the preparation
of the executable test program. This
program can be used to test programs,
modules, or software kits; and will score
not only proper operation but also the
successfully detected programming and
Software Quality programs are now practical.
All Quality programs such as ISO9001 have the
following three components:
Enforceable Standard Methods and Procedures:
The collection of software kits rapidly
converges to a set of software engineering
standard libraries for the organization.
of Quality: The Monte-Carlo Test capability provides a means of
evaluating the resistance of modules and parts
to errors in the design phase of the project.
- A means of updated the
Standard methods or Quality measure: The
responsible organization can easily develop all
of the defining files for the Programmable
Software Development Environment.
There are no required "silent partners".
