Abstract:
Testing, specifically system testing, often represents a major portion of full project. Frequently the system test activity is expected to do more that simply "show it works." In these cases, data to answer questions needs to be obtained. This talk uses examples to show what data would be collected, why that data was needed and how the data would be used. Also we will give examples of things we have tried and that have failed.

Participants should learn why these measures were selected.
