Derive Test design specifications from the abstraction tier in the development hierarchy immediately above the tier where they are employed against the design artifacts. Apply Test cases against the assembled system in the same tier. A host of possible methods exist. The simplest approach may be a checklist of required capability and measures of performance derived from the ConOps that is applied as a checklist against System Requirements. Map problems to solutions. All problems must have a solution that addresses them. Test Engineering subjects the requirements to verification using the method Inspection. At the same time they collect the test requirement for the system’s technical requirement.
An approach to mapping can be through the use of modeling. Model the problem space and the solution space and the traces between them.
