Describe Software Review and Formal Technical Review (FTR)?

Software Reviews:

Software reviews works as a filter for the software process. It helps to uncover errors and defects in software. Software reviews enhance the quality of software. Software reviews refine software, including requirements and design models, code, and testing data.

Formal Technical Review(FTR): 

A formal technical review (FTR) is a software quality control activity. In this activity, software developer and other team members are involved.

The objectives of an FTR are:

– Uncover the errors.
– Verify that the software under technical review meets its requirements.
– To ensure that the software must follow the predefined standards.
– To make projects more manageable.

The FTR includes walkthroughs and inspections. Each FTR is conducted as a normal meeting. FTR will be successful only if it is properly planned, and executed.

How do you define a Testing Policy?

The following are the important steps used to define a testing policy in general. But it can change according to your organization. Let’s discuss in detail the steps of implementing a testing policy in an organization.

  • Definition: The first step any organization needs to do is define one unique definition for testing within the organization so that everyone is of the same mindset.
  • How to achieve: How are we going to achieve our objective? Is there going to be a testing committee, will there be compulsory test plans which need to be executed, etc?.
  • Evaluate: After testing is implemented in a project how do we evaluate it? Are we going to derive metrics of defects per phase, per programmer, etc. Finally, it’s important to let everyone know how testing has added value to the project?.
  • Standards: Finally, what are the standards we want to achieve by testing? For instance, we can say that more than 20 defects per KLOC will be considered below standard and code review should be done for it.
