The software developer is always responsible for testing the individual units (modules) of the program
ensuring that each performs the function for which it was designed. In many cases, the developer also
conducts integration testing - A testing step that leads to construction of the complete program structure.
Only after the software architecture is complete, does an independent test group (ITG) become involved?

The role of an ITG is to remove the inherent problems associated with letting the builder test the thing
that has been built. Independent testing removes the conflict of interest that may otherwise present. After
all, personnel in the ITG team are paid to find errors.

How ever, the software developer does not turn the program over to ITG and walk away. The developer
and the ITG work closely throughout a software project to ensure that thorough tests will be conducted.
While testing is conducted, the developer must be available to correct errors that are uncovered.

The ITG is part of the software development project team in the sense that it becomes involved during
the specification process and stays involved (planning and specifying test procedures) throughout a large
project.

However, in many cases the ITG reports to the SQA organization, there by achieving a degree of
independence that might not be possible if it were a part of the software development organization.
