6. Third Party Acceptance and Testing of Road Information System (RIS) Software
Date of Start:
February 2006
(i) Central Road Research Institute, New Delhi (C,I)
(ii) National Highways Authorities of India (S)

 

Scope and Objectives
Checking the RIS software as per the terms of references given in contract agreement for software development.
Application and Functional testing of the RIS software modules and its detailed data parameters in conjunction with detailed design document.
Checking the system requirement specifications (SRS) document and detailed design document include checking of design, interface, architecture of the system and integration with HDM-4.
 
Methodology
Road Information system (RIS) is a web based system coupled with GIS features developed for decision making in planning and management of National Highways under Golden Quadrilateral. The process of testing starts with understanding the software application and user requirements. Reviewing the system requirement specifications (SRS) document and detailed design document include checking of design, interface, architecture, and integration with HDM-4. Based on user requirements, module wise detailed study has been done for utility, inclusion of various engineering parameters in the application in conjunction with HDM-4 analysis and the software development objectives. This includes identification of missing engineering parameters, units and its appropriated location in the modules. Functionality of the software has been checked in conjunction with detailed design document.
 
Conclusions
RIS application is web based application which will be useful for decision making process for planning, design and management of roads. The identified defects in the RIS applications will be very much useful to improve the software application.
