  • 1 Identification/Definition of the Method

    /Baader, 1990/ chap. 2.3 of sections II and III

    2 Brief Characteristic of the Method

    The Classical Design Verification proves a specification to be a refinement of another one. The proof is only done after the completion of the refinement.

    3 Application of the Method in the V-Model

    Within the V-Model the Classical Design Verification can be applied for the self assessment in SD. It is not sensible to allocate this method to QA because the team having refined the specification should perform the proof.

    4 Interfaces

    There is an interface to FS - Formal Specification. The Classical Design Verification has to be suited to the formal specification language.

    5 Further Information
