Glossary

Systems = People + Machines + Metods + Benefit (from ISO Data Processing Glossary)

People = Users + Administrators + Engineers

Machines = Hardware (Components and Firmware) + Software (Programs and Data)

Methods = Documentation + Training + Culture

Benefit = Advantages (Social, Economic, Personal)`

engineer = a person who uses scientific knowledge to solve practical problems (eg. cause a system to evolve & improve)

Specification = Objectives + Requirements

Objectives = attributes + measurement methods

Requirements = true / false measurement methods

administrator = someone whose job is to keep a system operating correctly

user = someone who derives some or all of the benefit of a system

Testing = Unit Tests + Integration Tests + System Tests

Quality Assurance = Inspections + Verification + Feedback (note: test construction is engeineering)
