Software Testing Introduction The national and international standards of any product and service are considered important to assess their holistic safety, quality and reliability that is highly important for every buyer. Moreover, there are also some standards that are based on safety of people and these standards are related to road safety, toy safety and secure medical packaging etc. At government and regulators basis various new better regulations are being developed. Not only in other fields but also in IT field these standards are practiced by developers, testers and others who are related to this field. The purpose of making this report is to discuss about a national and international standard document for software testing. Here selected national standard document for software testing is about ANSI and international standard document is IEEE. I will discuss in detail about these standards for software testing in upcoming paragraphs. Page 3 of 12
Software Testing Response to QuestionsIn past years, there was no comprehensive set available for software testing standards. But now there are some useful standards for software testing. Among those national and international standards ANSI and IEEE for software testing are important to discuss here in this report. A software is a product for a buyer and before selling that product its overall testing is mandatory to do at testers and as well as at developers’ end. This testing must be done according to ANSI and IEEE standards. Before using these standards fundamental knowledge about them is necessary. What is the standard name?The national standards ANSI for software testing stands for American National Standards Institute. It is a primary industrial standards body in United States of America. ANSI circulates some software related standards in combination with the IEEE and ASQ (Standards.ieee.org, 2017). On other side, international standards IEEE for software testing develops standards like SoftwareTest Documentation, Software Unit Testing and Assurance for Software Quality. The full form of IEEE is Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (Indiver, 2016). Who holds the copyright for the standard?The copyrights of ANSI standards hold by American National Standards Institute. But if I talk about ANSI Online standards then no portion of these standards is under ANSI Inc. These onlinematerials have their own original copyright owner. On contrary, the copyrights of IEEE are managed by its Intellectual Property Rights Office i.e. IPR Office. This department is responsiblefor all IEEE related copyright matters, its policies and procedures. For getting any information Page 4 of 12
