21. Users Manual for Version 2.2.1 of the NIST DMIS Test Suite
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7735
Topic: Software Testing Metrics
Published: 10/25/2010
Authors: Thomas Rollin Kramer, John A Horst
Abstract: This manual is a users manual for the NIST DMIS Test Suite, version 2.2.1. DMIS (Dimensional Measuring Interface Standard) is a language for writing programs for coordinate measuring machines and other dimensional measurement equipment. The manual d ...

22. The TRECVid 2008 Event Detection Evaluation
Topic: Software Testing Metrics
Published: 12/9/2009
Authors: Jonathan G Fiscus, John S Garofolo, Paul Douglas Over, Martial Michel, Richard T. Rose
Abstract: This paper is a summary of the 2008 TRECVid Event Detection evaluation. TRECVid is a laboratory-style evaluation that aims to model real world situations or significant component tasks. The event detection evaluation was organized to address dete ...

23. Directions in Security Metrics Research
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7564
Topic: Software Testing Metrics
Published: 4/30/2009
Author: Wayne Jansen
Abstract: More than 100 years ago, Lord Kelvin insightfully observed that measurement is vital to deep knowledge and understanding in physical science. During the last few decades, researchers have made various attempts to develop measures and systems of measu ...

24. Static Analyzers in Software Engineering
Topic: Software Testing Metrics
Published: 3/2/2009
Author: Paul E Black
Abstract: Static analyzers can report possible problems in code and help reinforce good practices of developers. We contrast the strengths of static analyzers with testing and indicate the current state of the art.

25. Pseudo-Exhaustive Testing for Software
Topic: Software Testing Metrics
Published: 4/28/2006
Authors: David R Kuhn, Vadim Okun
Abstract: Pseudo-exhaustive testing uses the empirical observation that, for broad classes of software, a fault is likely triggered by only a few variables interacting. The method takes advantage of two relatively recent advances in software engineering: algor ...

26. Failure Modes in Medical Device Software: an Analysis of 15 Years of Recall Data
Topic: Software Testing Metrics
Published: 12/5/2001
Authors: Dolores R. Wallace, David R Kuhn
Abstract: Most complex systems today contain software, and systems failures activated by software faults can provide lessons for software development practices and software quality assurance. This paper presents an analysis of software-related failures of medi ...

27. Application Portability Profile (APP) The U. S. Government's Open System Environment Profile OSE/1 Version 2
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 500-210
Topic: Software Testing Metrics
Published: 6/9/1993
Author: Gary Fisher
Abstract: The focus of this guide is on open system environments (OSE) which integrate POSIX, GOSIP, and other specifications to provide the functionality necessary to address a broad range of Federal information technology requirements.

28. Characteristics and Functions of Software Engineering Environments
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 85-3250
Topic: Software Testing Metrics
Published: 9/1/1985

29. Guide to Contracting for Software Conversion Services
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 500-90
Topic: Software Testing Metrics
Published: 5/1/1982
Author: Mark Skall

30. An Analysis Framework and Additive Software Analysis
Topic: Software Testing Metrics
Published: Date unknown
Author: Paul E Black
Abstract: We present a framework for software assurance, in addition to an additive software analysis approach. Both have the potential to dramatically reduce software vulnerabilities within the next seven years. The framework (1) aggregates tool outputs, (2) ...
