Static Testing, IEEE 1028 standard for Software Reviews

Notes on Static Testing / Reviews - http://softwareandquality.blogspot.com/2009/08/static-testing-ieee-1028-standard-for.html

Comments:

Static Testing/Reviews - needs a big pot of experince in software. I mean only the Preconditions for a Review for example. And it's only one - important - part of a Rewiew. A software, mission critical, implemented in real-time environment. Who can really do Static Testing/Review but, because of the Weight of the Preconditions?

True. For starters, when only dynamic tests are being run, it would be useful to introduce informal reviews which are relatively light weight and based on the experience, choose to either move to formal types or stick to informal reviews.

Undertaking this activity requires buy-in and backing from the organization. In most cases, a suitable business case needs to be prepared highlighting the benefits that accrue from this exercise. On the face of it, it may be hard to justify this exercise when the organization is used to only executing tests as we know it. Unless justification in terms of cost and time saved are highlighted, getting buy-in can get difficult especially when projects operate under cost/time pressures. Finally, if we can get at least the informal reviews done, it would be better than not doing any reviews at all.

Maybe? I suggest an individual mentor program within small groups. Buy-in in current economcis crisis fails. And highlightting will work for platforms like Java at public views like JavaOne. It has surely the backing from organization. Take the TCK for the platform, for example JINI. You can learn and earn much about software, precise from Madison. If you are willing to do so. I agree, when projects operate under cost/time pressures reviews are the first thing to cut off by any behaviour. Best is, bring them togehter on the thing, where not doing any reviews at all and hold them.

That's a nice idea and sounds workable to me. Operating within your area of influence as you have stated, to introduce changes is a possibility.
