Abstract : The Testing Techniques for Parallel Software (TTPS) project was conducted by Optimization Technology, Inc. for Rome Laboratory. The purpose was to investigate and implement candidate parallel software testing techniques to improve the quality and reliability of parallel software through the application of automated software testing tools and techniques. Although software testing tools are beginning to mature for the sequential software development environment, the availability of software quality and test tools for the parallel environment continues to be poor. The TTPS project focused on the incorporation of candidate techniques into an operational demonstration tool. The TTPS tool delivers parallel software testing techniques, automated documentation, and metrics integrated into a high quality software quality tool ready for real world testing application.
