sometimes called slow link testing if the organization typically tests with a faster link

box and the internal behavior of the program is completely ignored. Testing occurs based upon the external specifications. Also known as behavioral testing, since only the external behaviors of the program are evaluated and analyzed.
it focuses on "corner cases" or values that are usually out of range as defined by the
specification. This means that if function expects all values in range of negative 100 to
positive 1000, test inputs would include negative 101 and positive 1001. BVA attempts to
derive the value often used as a technique for stress, load or volume testing. This type of
validation is usually performed after positive functional validation has completed
(successfully) using requirements specifications and user documentation.

software organizations evolve as they define, implement, measure, control and improve
their software processes. The model is a guide for selecting the process improvement
strategies by facilitating the determination of current process capabilities and
identification of the issues most critical to software quality and process improvement.
