    Abstract

    The development of the Decision Support Framework (DSF) for software testing provides a solid basis for assisting the software test manager in assessing the risk of achieving successful software testing. To further enhance the DSF, the DSF has been expanded beyond its static and dynamic analysis perspectives.

    It has been observed that any activity or process has some type of inherent temporal perspective. Thus the adding of a temporal perspective to the DSF static and dynamic analysis perspectives is a step forward. The temporal information is derived and integrated utilizing the test manager’s experience and his/her software test plan. This provides an additional analysis on successful software testing and the consequences of influences that affect software testing. An explanation of why the framework needs a time perspective and other associated changes is provided. The details of the temporal perspective and the other relevant changes to the framework are described. The total decision support framework, with an integrated temporal perspective, is presented and discussed
