Structured Software Testing

This course presents how to test software based on requirements in a risk-driven approach regardless of project type. It discusses all necessary documents to be used as inputs to software testing and the documents to be developed within the testing processes. Techniques and approaches to test case development are discussed in detail. This course includes practical skills necessary to effectively comprehend requirements documented in a systems requirements specification to be used as one of the inputs in writing test plans and test cases.

Training Objectives

At the end of the course, the participants will be able to:

  1. Define basic testing concepts based on the new ISO/IEC/IEEE 29119 test standard.
  2. Develop a focused, risk-based test plan to prioritize what to test and manage the test project.
  3. Develop test cases based on functional and non-functional requirements.
  4. Use the new ISO/IEC/IEEE 29119 standard in writing test plans, test cases and test procedures.
  5. Apply verification and validation strategies.
