You may be familiar with preventive testing i.e. creating and reviewing test designs early to improve functional requirements, test designs, and stakeholder understanding. Unfortunately, test designs only describe functionality . There are other (internal) qualities such as code predictability or compliance with design guidelines that need to be assessed. Therefore, other verification tactics are needed.
Verification entails assessment of compliance with all requirements. It includes all forms of testing as well as technical reviews, verification-focused analysis, verification-focused measurement, and operational monitoring. A verification strategy is comprised of verification tactics that together assess whether a solution complies with its requirements and goals.
This presentation describes the value of early development and technical review of verification strategies i.e. the value of preventive verification. Such reviews may reveal mismatched understandings and expectations as well as defects in requirements and verification strategies. Preventive verification includes preventive testing.
