Software Disasters - Understanding the Past, to Improve the Future, Prof. Patrica McQaid, Ph.D
Over the years, there have been several major software disasters, resulting from poor software project management, poor risk assessment, and poor development and testing practices. The results of the disasters range from project delays, project cancellations, loss of millions of dollars of equipment, to human fatalities. It is important to study software disasters, to alert developers and testers to be ever vigilant, and to understand that huge catastrophes can arise from what seem like small problems. The focus of the talk is on the factors that led to these problems, an analysis of the problems, and then the lessons to be learned that relate to software engineering, safety engineering, government and corporate regulations, and oversight by users of the systems. It is by understanding the past, that we can improve the future
Keys to Software Testing: Looking not only under the lamp post, Mag. Rudolf Ramler
Software testing has emerged into a strategic role in ensuring product quality in software engineering. Although in the early days considered as an art, nowadays, software testing is recognized as a specialized profession with a maintained body of knowledge, best practices and guidelines as well as standardized qualifications. For many testing challenges, a spectrum of approved solutions can be offered and supported by state-of-the-art tools. However, the constantly increasing size and complexity of software products on the one hand and the demand to fulfill and exceed customer expectations and quality requirements on the other hand, motivate the research for new innovative testing approaches. This talk highlights current research directions illustrated with promising results that can provide keys to open future opportunities in software testing.
Models in Software Quality Assurance: Testing and Debugging, Dr. Bernhard Peischl
Six decades into the computer revolution, four decades since the invention of the microprocessor, and two decades into the rise of the modern Internet, all of the technology required to transform industries through software finally is in place and can be widely delivered at global scale. Assuring the quality of software and software services in certain business areas is thus becoming a crucial factor. This talk focuses on the state-of-the-practice in using diverse models (lightweight to formal ones) for software quality assurance. Particularly the talk addresses the role of models in field of test case generation and debugging (or fault isolation).
Exploration of System Specifications and Test Refinement, Prof. Dr. Klaus-Dieter Schewe
Formal specifications together with validation and verification provide a solid approach to produce high-quality software.
Nonetheless, the software systems produced are still subject to thorough testing to guarantee as much as possible that the resulting software satisfies the requirements and needs of the customers and users. In the talk the enrichment of the formal development process with high-level test cases will be propagated, which together with an interpretation of specifications could already contribute to explore the desired software quality. Then the refinement of the specifications has to be extended to the test cases.
