A walk-through is a group meeting set up to identify defects.
Walk through can be done on requirements, functional and technical
designs, test cases, completed code, any other project deliverable.
After the walk-through is complete, a report of any identified
defects is created.
The lowest level of detail relevant to the Customer.
What If Analysis
The capability of "asking" the software package what
the effect will be of changing some of the input data or independent
White Box Testing
White box testing (also known as clear box testing, glass box
testing, or structural testing), uses an internal perspective
of the system to design test cases based on internal structure.
It requires programming skills to identify all paths through
the software. The tester chooses test case inputs to exercise
paths through the code and determines the appropriate outputs.
White box testing not only validates these end results but also
the process used to achieve that result.
While white box testing is applicable at the unit, integration,
and system levels of the software testing process, it's typically
applied to the unit. So while it normally tests paths within
a unit, it can also test paths between units during integration,
and between subsystems during a system level test. Though this
method of test design can uncover an overwhelming number of
test cases, it might not detect unimplemented parts of the specification
or missing requirements. But you can be sure that all paths
through the test object are executed.
Method of avoiding an incident or problem, either from a temporary
fix or from a technique that means the Customer is not reliant
on a particular aspect of a service that is known to have a
