ABC is the organization which designs and develops application software in house for its clients. It has designed and developed one such mission critical application software for its client, which is XYZ. ABC has also been maintaining the application software after it has been successfully rolled out in many locations of XYZ. Application software has modules for data entry, queries, reports and maintenance. The application software has brought many awards to ABC. The application uses standard operating system and standard RDBMS and architecture is client server. Now PQR wants to deploy the same application at the international level. When they tried to bid for a similar application at the international level, they were not selected, as their application software was not tested and certified for Quality by professional certifying agency as per international standard (IEEE). So, ABC lost the international assignment to their competitors. Now, top management of ABC realized their mistake and decided to go for a professional third party Quality audit and certification of their successful application software as per international standards. They sought the help of an accredited software testing and certifying agency.
Suppose you are a part of the certifying agency; your role will be to help ABC development team prepare the essential documentation for the application software like Software Requirements Specification (SRS), User Manual (UM), Software Design Description (SDD).
