DCE Software Test Plan

Executive Summary of DCE Software Test Plan Development

Summary written on 1/15/2000
Updated on 3/21/2001

The DCE Software Test Plan (STP) is the top-level document that establishes both "Unit" level tests, and the Formal Qualification Test (FQT) of the DCE Flight Software. This STP establishes and governs the approach for verifying DCE Computer Software Components (CSCs), and their compliance with flight software requirements - as set forth in the DCE FSW Requirements Document (COS-UCB-004) and the DCE Software Design Document (COS-UCB-009).
