11. 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 ...

12. Foreword to Information Modeling for Interoperable Dimensional Metrology
Topic: Software Testing Metrics
Published: 12/30/2011
Author: John A Horst
Abstract: The value of information exchange standards development is described and defended against other data exchange interoperability options in the context of dimensional metrology in manufacturing.

13. Goals of and Charge to the NIST Workshop on Software Measures and Metrics to Reduce Security Vulnerabilities (SwMM-RSV)
Topic: Software Testing Metrics
Published: Date unknown
Author: Paul E Black
Abstract: The Federal Cybersecurity Research and Development Strategic Plan seeks to fundamentally alter the dynamics of security, reversing adversaries' asymmetrical advantages. Achieving this reversal is the mid-term goal of the plan, which calls for "sustai ...

15. Introducing Combinatorial Testing in a Large Organization: Pilot Project Experience Report
Topic: Software Testing Metrics
Published: 4/1/2014
Authors: Jon Hagar, David R Kuhn, Raghu N Kacker, Thomas Wissink
Abstract: This poster gives an overview of the experience of eight pilot projects, over two years, applying combinatorial testing in a large aerospace organization. While results varied across the different pilot projects, overall it was estimated that CT wou ...

16. Maintainers Manual for Version 2.2.1 of the NIST DMIS Test Suite
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7720
Topic: Software Testing Metrics
Published: 10/25/2010
Authors: Thomas Rollin Kramer, John A Horst
Abstract: This manual is a maintainers 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 ma ...

17. Metrics for the Cost of Proprietary Information Exchange Languages in Intelligent Systems
Topic: Software Testing Metrics
Published: 1/31/2011
Authors: John A Horst, Nathan W. Hartman, George Wong
Abstract: The increasing number of intelligent software components is accompanied by an increase of proprietary information exchange languages between components. One of the challenges for the smart technology worker is to achieve intelligent system component ...

18. 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 ...

20. Research Directions in Security Metrics
Topic: Software Testing Metrics
Published: 4/4/2011
Author: Wayne Jansen
Abstract: More than 100 years ago, Lord Kelvin 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 measurement for co ...
