View Full Version : Test and Verification (software) Dictionary

01-16-2017, 02:40 PM
This thread is for input on the testing and verification dictionary. This dictionary will be a collection of words associated with product / software testing. Anybody that helps provide definitions for the dictionary will be noted in the front matter of the book that will come out later this year. We will also send a digital copy of the book to those that have contributed.

We are looking for legitimate definitions as well as definitions that may be a bit acerbic or of a dooms-day humor. For example:


Conventional Definition

Acerbic Definition

Customer evaluation

Occurs when a customer receives a supplier product and evaluates it in their product or evaluates it as itself.

Instead of conducting tests before the customer gets the product, we send the product to the customer expecting them to find all of the defects and still remain our customer.

We will post words here and look for definitions. If you have an idea for a concept that should be added, start another thread under this post. We have over 400 words, but recognize there may be more. We will start at the top (A), and work our way down the alphabet.
