Version: Compatible with Bentley AutoPIPE V8i SELECTseries 4 Maintenance Release 1 (Version 09.05.01.02) Build Type: SELECT Release Product Operating Systems: Microsoft Windows (see System Requirements for specific details) Language: English Date: June 11, 2013
The Bentley AutoPIPE Acceptance Test Set (ATS) provides the user with a recommended procedure for validating the integrity of the installed AutoPIPE 09.05.01.02 program. Since software validation and verification is a common requirement of mandated quality control procedures the ATS is available to all AutoPIPE users as a benefit of the SELECT program.
Prior to any commercial or Quality Assured release, the accuracy of the AutoPIPE program is verified by the execution of Alpha Tests. These Alpha Tests consist of a matrix of test systems designed to capture key feature attributes related to numeric and functional processing. Each set of test outputs is compared to a prepared set of expected results (i.e. hand calculations, some other well-established computer program, etc.), and evaluated for acceptance. The test matrix has been developed, verified, and documented per the requirements of the Bentley Software Quality Assurance Procedures (D/N# QAP).
The Acceptance Test Set includes input files and full documentation covering a sampling of test systems and results documented from the Alpha Tests.
Although many program features are verified by the ATS, it should not be construed as being complete for testing of all program functions. Additional tests for specific program features are continually being developed.
