Code verification is the process used for checking the software code for errors introduced in the coding phase. The objective of code verification process is to check the software code in all aspects. This process includes checking the consistency of user requirements with the design phase. Note that code verification process does not concentrate on proving the correctness of programs. Instead, it verifies whether the software code has been translated according to the requirements of the user.

1.  Development time problem:


Some large systems take so long to develop that the technology (computer, software, hardware components) changes between the time the system is first conceptualized and the time it is ready for delivery to the user.

Analysis of programs by methodically analyzing the program text is called static analysis. Static analysis is usually performed mechanically by the aid of software tools. During static analysis the program itself is not executed, but the program text is the input to the tools .

The aim of testing is often to demonstrate that a program works by showing that it has no errors. This is the opposite of what testing should be viewed as.

The primary goal of the coding phase is to translate the given design into source code in a given programming language, so that code is simple, easy to test, and easy to understand and modify. Simplicity and clarity are the properties that a programmer should strive for.

Studies suggest that the software maintenance process begins without proper knowledge of the software system. This occurs because the software maintenance team is unaware of the requirements and design documentation. Also, traditional models fail to capture the evolutionary nature of the software. To overcome these problems, software maintenance models have been proposed, which include quick fix model, iterative enhancement model, and reuse-oriented model.

Software is expensive: Over the past decades, with the advancement of technology, the cost of hardware has consistently decreased. On the other hand, the cost of software is increasing. As a result, the hardware/software ratio for a computer system has shown a reversal from the early years.

Termination analysis is performed when the development process is over. The basic reason for performing termination analysis is to provide information about the development process. Remember that a project is an instantiation of the process.

Changes are implemented in the software system by following a software maintenance process, which is known as Software Maintenance Life Cycle (SMLC).This life cycle comprises seven phases, namely, problem identification, analysis, design, implementation, system testing, acceptance testing, and delivery phase.
