Summary:
Early in the world of the Web, Lockheed Martin Astronautics began using web technology to facilitate test procedure execution. The tool supports our integrated team of systems, hardware, software test, and quality assurance engineers.

At Lockheed Martin Astronautics Independent Verification and Validation (IV& V) software test area, we have been successfully using web technology to facilitate test procedure execution. We have created a Web-based system that generates HTML test procedures which directly supports test creation, execution, analysis, and documentation of results. This system constitutes a successfully implemented "groupware" test tool, which has been in production use for over two years.

The tool supports our integrated team of systems, hardware, software test, and quality assurance engineers. Our Web-based tool and associated processes have contributed to a 20-to-50 percent cost savings, while at the same time improving consistency, documentation, review of results, and product control.
