The test plan focuses on how the testing for the project will proceed, which units will be tested and what approaches (and tools) are to be used during the various stages of testing. However it does not deals with details of testing a unit nor does it specify which test case are to be used.

When tasks are defined and schedules are estimated, the planning effort has sufficient information to begin staffing plans and organizing a team into units to address the development problem. The comprehensive staffing plan identifies the required skills and schedules the right people to be brought onto the project at appropriate times and released from the project when their tasks are complete.

The development of software begins once the requirements document is 'ready'. One of the objectives of this document is to check whether the delivered software system is acceptable. For this, it is necessary to ensure that the requirements specification contains no errors and that it specifies the user's requirements correctly. Also, errors present in the SRS will adversely affect the cost if they are detected later in the development process or when the software is delivered to the user. Hence, it is desirable to detect errors in the requirements before the design and development of the software begins. To check all the issues related to requirements, requirements validation is performed.

The development of software starts with the requirements document, which is also used to determine eventually whether or not the delivered software system is acceptable. It is therefore important that the requirement specification contains no error and specifies the client's requirement correctly.

Software engineering employs a well defined and systematic approach to develop software. This approach is considered to be the most effective way of producing high-quality software. However, despite this systematic approach in software development, there are still some serious challenges faced by software engineering. Some of these challenges are listed below.

As soon as the first iteration of architectural design is complete, component-level design takes place. The objective of this design is to transform the design model into functional software. To achieve this objective, the component-level design represents -the internal data structures and processing details of all the software components (defined during architectural design) at an abstraction level, closer to the actual code. In addition, it specifies an interface that may be used to access the functionality of all the software components.

The purpose of the software quality assurance plans (SAQP) is to specify all the work products that need to be produced during the project, activities that need to be performed for checking the quality of each of the work products, and the tools and methods that may be used for the SQA activities.

Once the software is developed it should be tested in a proper manner before the system is delivered to the user. For this, two techniques that provide systematic guidance for designing tests are used. These techniques are discussed here.

Developing methods that can produce high-quality software is another fundamental goal of software engineering. We can view quality of a software product as having three dimensions:

For effective project monitoring, the information coming from the development process to the management process should be objective and quantitative data about the project. Software matrices are quantifiable measures that could be used to measure different characteristics of a software system or the software development process.
