    From its inception in 1980, the IEEE 802 committee has led the way in developing LAN (local area network) standards. The committee's work on wireless LANs (WLANs) began in 1987 within the TEEE 802.4 working group. Developing an ISM (industrial, scientific, and medical)-based WLAN using the equivalent of a token-passing bus media access control (MAC) protocol was the committee's initial goal. After...

    In the last 20 years, software engineering standards have evolved from documenting processes in the military complex to supporting the total software life cycle. Standards that define software engineering processes are still progressing in terms of the breadth and depth of their coverage and the maturity of the standards themselves. In this regard, they are moving closer to standards in older engi... View full abstract»

    To address the quality problem for software, developers need a technology that specializes in producing robust software. One widely used process that supports the construction of quality software is testing, which executes the program with input data or test cases, and then compares the output data to expected results. However, the transfer of techniques from research to practice has been slow bec... View full abstract»
