"Status and Relevance of International Software Testing Standards"
Speaker: Jon Duncan Hagar, IEEE Project Editor ISO/IEC/IEEE 29119
*** Breakout Rooms Networking Sessions Precede 6:00-6:30pm ***
This one-hour session provides a basic introduction and status of the ISO/IEC/IEEE 29119 software testing standard series, replacing several IEEE and national standards. The session will consider perspectives on how the standard can be used and implemented in companies as well as situations where it might not be applicable. ISO29119 part 1 provides basic software test terms, concepts, ideas, and approaches. Process elements from ISO29119 part 2 will be considered addressing the team organization, management, planning, execution, and completion of test activities. A brief overview of ISO29119 part 3 provides guidance and outlines for test documentation. Finally, the session presents the contents of part 4, software test design techniques.
1. Introduction to and status of ISO/IEC/IEEE 29119 part 1 to 4
2. When the standard can be useful
3. Where the standard might not be used
