Download Development & Validation Process for Analyse-it for Microsoft Excel (.pdf) Evaluating the Numerical Accuracy of Analyse-it For purposes of U. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) validation, Analyse-it for Microsoft Excel should be considered off-the-shelf software.
For that reason Analyse-it is not directly responsible for compliance with FDA regulations. To that end, you should read this document to assess the adequacy of our software development process and determine what, if any, additional efforts you need to take to establish that the software is validated for the intended use.
[Wikipedia] Testing conducted internally by the manufacturer, alpha testing takes a new product through a protocol of testing procedures to verify product functionality and capability. Anomalies may be found during, but not limited to, reviewing, testing, analysis, compilation, or use of software products or applicable documentation.
[IEEE] An application programming interface (API) is an interface in computer science that defines the ways by which an application program may request services from libraries and/or operating systems.
End-user software engineering considers all aspects of the software life cycle involved in end-user software development. There are other older resources for papers not listed here.
People who write programs -- but not as their primary job function -- are end-user programmers. We have collected a large sample of spreadsheets (5607 total files, 4499 of which are unique and suitable for automated processing in Excel) that researchers can use to evaluate their methodologies and tools for creating and maintaining spreadsheets.
[ISTQB]Testing practice for projects using agile methodologies, such as extreme programming (XP), treating development as the customer of testing and emphasizing a test-first design paradigm. [ISTQB] A software testing practice that follows the principles of agile software development.
Study-unit Aims: The objectives of the study-unit are:- To introduce the principles of metrology in chemical measurements;- To introduce statistical tests of significance that are used in chemical metrology, and their application in the interpretation of analytical results;- To introduce the least squares method of determining linear relationships, and its application in the determination of calibration plots;- To describe the methodologies for the validation of analytical methods;- To describe principles of confirmation of measurement competence – the use of certified reference materials, comparison of the intra-and inter-laboratory data. : By the end of the study-unit the student will be able to: - Define basic terms used in chemical metrology;- Select appropriate statistical tests that are used in chemical metrology;- Recall the basic principles of sampling;- Recall the parameters needed to validate a measurement procedure and their definitions, and select the appropriate parameters for a particular validation;- Recall the main metrological concepts (traceability, measurement uncertainty) and approaches (validation of analysis procedures, reference materials, interlaboratory comparisons) relevant to chemical analysis. : By the end of the study-unit the student will be able to:- Apply appropriate statistical tests in chemical metrology;- Interpret correctly and verify the results of analytical measurements on the basis of relevant statistical calculations;- Validate a measurement procedure;- Select and apply appropriate methods to ensure proper calibration and validation of the analytical method;- Check the correctness and reliability of analysis results. Christian, 6th ed., 2004- Quantitative Chemical Analysis, Daniel C. The University reserves the right to make changes in case errors are detected after publication.Agile testing is built upon the philosophy that testers need to adapt to rapid deployment cycles and changes in testing patterns.[Wikipedia]A combinatorial software testing method that, for each pair of input parameters to a system (typically, a software algorithm), tests all possible discrete combinations of those parameters. Any condition that deviates from expectation based on requirements specifications, design documents, user documents, standards, et, or from someone's perception or experience.For one reason or another, they find themselves creating, maintaining, and debugging programs in support of their other goals.
