This paper will provide answers to questions that the writer had on the topic as well as to the overall importance of Functional Testing. Questions to be discussed will be accentuated throughout the paper. II. What Is Functional Testing? Functional Testing in a sense is to test every function individually; this meaning testing the function to the extent that the tester can say with confidence that the function works.
This test is performed in the presence of the user. Black box testing focuses on the overall function of the software rather than is structure. The set of tests is derived by considering the Requirement Specification for the software. Testing is performed early in the stage out , but black box testing toward the end. Typical black-box test design techniques include: • Decision table testing • All-pairs testing possible in this testing.

To reduce the cost of changes, it is important to apply change management as early as possible in the software development cycle. Requirements traceability is considered crucial in change management for establishing and maintaining consistency between software development artifacts. It is the ability to link requirements back to stakeholders’ rationales and forward to corresponding design artifacts, code, and test cases. When changes for the requirements of the software system are proposed, the impact of these changes on other requirements, design elements and source code should be traced in order to determine parts of the software system to be

There are however multiple perspectives on ALMT (Kaariainen & Valimaki, 2008; Schwaber, 2006). From a technology vendor’s perspective ALMT focuses on integrated tool suites that support requirements management, design management, configuration and change management, quality management and deployment and release management (Jwo, Hsu & Cheng, 2010). Kaariainen and Valimaki (2008) and Schwaber (2006) have a less technology focused perspective and st... ... middle of paper ... ...ot function autonomously, employees need to use ALMT for organisations to potentially benefit from its capabilities (Ebert, 2013). ALMT capabilities support the entire software development process with the objective of minimising software project and maintenance failure (Lacheiner & Ramler, 2011). This study departs from the past research on ALMT in that the unit of analysis is the ALMT user, and the emphasis is on ALMT adoption.
Software Maintenance and Change Control In today's world there is very unusual to have a program developed that will not have further development after release. The requirements of the time that we live are very dynamic and there is a need for constant adaptation. A basic requirement for any new software product is to be adaptable, easy to maintain and modify. Time factor and cost factor are ruling in the agitated competition and only those who are well organized and prepared are able to survive. The question for software maintenance and change control is taking key position in both perspectives: the perspective of the manufacturer of the software, and the perspective of the consumer.
It is also necessary to evaluate the checking which will enhance the reliability (Bertolino, 2012). The aim of researchers working on the evaluation of software testing techniques related to the effectiveness in finding the defects in the software and also the ability to increase the software quality. This research lies within the empirical method research based on the validation and verification process along with the focus on the evaluation. It connects both the practice and research and aims to continue building of the empirical knowled... ... middle of paper ... ...ty of Western Australia. Sawant, A.
An estimation model cannot make the estimation success; an effective monitoring policy is also required to make the estimation successful. In the planning of a software project managers decides the number of mile stones and these milestones must be achieved in the given calendar time. Project Manager must be continuously monitoring the progress of the project. If the team is not reaching the mile stones on the time then project manage has to take the necessary action. 4) The concept of multistage effort estimation is introduced in this research.
