A Proposed Testing and Analysis Research Initiative
September/October 1992 (vol. 9 no. 5)
pp. 89-96

The steps being taken to develop a US software research agenda and to bridge the gap between testing and analysis researchers and practitioners are discussed. The current software reliability crisis and the obstacles to developing more effective testing and analysis technology and transferring it to industry are reviewed. Nine research areas most likely to yield important results are outlined. A major initiative in testing and analysis to provide the needed resources, an organizing framework, and an impetus to broaden and intensify critical testing and analysis research is discussed.
