Computing systems are employed in the health care environment in efforts to increase reliability of care & reduce costs. Software verification & validation (V&V) is an aid in determining that the software requirements are implemented correctly & completely & are traceable to system requirements. It helps to ensure that those system functions controlled by software are secure, reliable, & maintainable. Software V&V is conducted throughout the planning, development & maintenance of software systems, including knowledge based systems, & may assist in assuring appropriate reuse of software.

This report addresses Test & Evaluation (T&E) of software intensive systems & the DoD's efforts to improve the software process. DoD software costs total over $30 billion a year, of which 2/3's is for maintaining, upgrading, & modifying operational systems already in production. Today's major defense systems depend largely on the quality of this complex & increasingly costly software. Because software error can cause a system to fail, possibly with life threatening consequences, software intensive systems need to be thoroughly tested before production. Charts & tables.

We have all the necessary hardware, and have had it for years, but don't yet have robot-driven cars because we don't have the software. This book explains how we can build better software and all get our own high-tech chauffeur.
