STARWEST 2020 Concurrent Session : Test 360 with BDD at V-Speeds


Thursday, October 8, 2020 - 2:15pm to 3:15pm

Test 360 with BDD at V-Speeds

In Aviation, V-Speeds are the speeds derived from data obtained from designers and manufacturers during flight testing. Using them is considered the best practice to maximize aviation safety and performance. Can this same model be applied to Software testing? How about aviation software testing? We, at Airline Tariff Publishing Company applied the same principles of V-Speeds to obtain data about the application in a 360 viewpoint (i.e. from the designers, subject matter experts and product owners) to maximize our test script development efficiency within the BDD framework. This talk will focus on what we learnt during this process and how it lead to a fine tuned effective BDD implementation and management.
