Project Metrics- an application to track the status of software projects. Verification and Validation is a part of S/W. Quality Assurance. Verification refers to the set of activities that ensure correct implementation of a specific function. Validation refers to a different set of activities that ensure that the software that has been built is traceable to customer requirements.
Verification: "Are we building the product right"
Validation: "Are we building the right product"
The project entitled Project metrics should be an effort, to develop a tool to manage the Verification and Validation process .The specific purpose of the Independent Verification and Validation Plan is to bring out the various Verification and validation tasks to be performed.
The goals of the Project metrics is to ensure that the software and the documents are developed are of high quality as expected from any mission critical software. This project should generate the plan for Verification and validation process. This project will be going to maintain the document names, source code module names, version number, released date, receiving date size of document and source code modules of receiving projects for Verification and validation.
Using this application we should be able to assign the tasks/activities to different persons and also calculate the expected efforts and actual efforts. The Verification & validation co-coordinator will do this work.
The project Project metrics contains the 5 modules.
This module should maintain the task names, task numbers according to the projects. If any new project came for verification and validation then project name, task name, task number will be stored.
This module should maintain the required inputs for Verification and validation and assigning the tasks/activities to team members. In this module we will check, required documents are available for performing a task/activity on a particular project.
This module should maintain the total tasks, task id's and total team members name, personal numbers, designation, phone number information.
Efforts Estimation module should maintain the estimated time and actual time for performing the tasks on documents and software.
Estimation of Verification effort for a document should include calculation of manpower to complete the verification of document. Estimation of Verification efforts for source code against the design document.
Actual efforts should includes, actually how much of time is taken to verify the document and source code.
