    Test cases of individual objects to be assessed have to be selected based on the methods defined in the Assessment Specification, in such a way that their meeting of the quality requirements can be sufficiently guaranteed.

    The Assessment Specification is submitted within the scope of this activity and then released by the QA Manager after the corresponding control. The personnel separation between the developer and the staff member in charge of the release must be taken into consideration.


    Within the scope of self-assessments, test cases have already been selected in SD. These test cases can be valuable for the proof activities; therefore they should be taken into consideration. As far as necessary, they have to be updated or modified.
