On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:
1. Describe and discuss the decisions faced by management, information systems developers (analysts, designers, programmers, testers, support staff), clients and users when assessing the production of systems of appropriate quality in a cost-effective manner;
2. Assess the risks of several approaches to the verification and testing of the outputs of various phases in the system development life-cycle; and
3. Identify the roles of, and conflicts between, clients, developers, system testers and user acceptance testers.
