- GB/T 8567-2006
- GB/T 11457-2006
- GB/T 18905-2002
The software quality requirement included Functionality, Reliability, Usability, Efficiency, Maintainability, Transfer-ability, Applicability and user filing.
The Dr. Yu briefed the internal and external quality based on GB/T 16260.1 for information system.
Finally, Dr. Yu summarized that the key implementation industries in mainland included medical, financial, nuclear power and electricity, and railway information system.
Ms. Hou introduced the software engineering technical requirement and quality assurance standard systems, as well as, information security protection standard system. Software development and maintenance GB standards were mentioned.
After that Ms. Hou briefed the ISO/IEC 20000 technical standard system included quality model, requirement, measurement and evaluation.
She also introduced the 5 level of information system security based on a series of GB/T standards and the case study for using GB/T 9385-2008 was shared.
The first Q&A session
After tea break, Mr. CHOE Gum-ho (Director, Ministry of Knowledge Economy; Korea Laboratory Accreditation Scheme (KOLAS)) was the third speaker and he presented the topic "Accreditation Program of Software Testing in Korea and Other Countries".
Mr. Choe introduced the nationally recognized software program. In Korea, there were two track system of software testing that the first one was Nationally Recognized Testing & Certification and the second one was KOLAS Accredited Testing Laboratories. The following diagram showed the collection of ISO/IEC JTC 1 standards.
Results of survey on APLAC's accreditation bodies (ABs) was shared and found that many ABs had not ready for providing software testing accreditation service. Mr. Choe said they focused on product quality and security based on ISO/IEC 9126, 25000 and IEC 61508, etc. It would be extended to safety management system and healthcare information technology based on ISO 26262, technical regulations, etc.
The fourth speaker was Dr. Mark PEDERSEN (National Innovation Manager, K.J. Ross & Associates) and his presentation named "Software Testing Industry Trends and Standards in Australia".
Dr. Pedersen highlighted the 2012 Australian Software Testing Industry. The ratio of testing team structure was showed. Usually, the ratio of test manager to team was 1:11; test directors to team was 1 to 70; and testers to developers was 1:5.
Dr. Pedersen said NATA accreditation for software testing in Australia based on ISO/IEC 29119. The scope and structure of that standard was mentioned. Finally, Dr. Pedersen concluded that opportunities for off-shore software testing services were increasing in the commercial arena but the cost imperatives for compliance testing was important.
