The Butterfly Model for Test Development

[article]
Member Submitted
Summary:

There is a dichotomy between the development and testing of software, signified by the abundance of software development models and the dearth of test development models. Software testing's ephemeral nature aggravates the issue, as does the software developer's view of testing - represented only by a deadline, not a process.

This paper presents a new model for software test development. The butterfly model is then correlated with the ubiquitous V development model to establish context.
