Crazy testing patent of the week

Just in case you might have thought that crazy patents only belong in the world of smart phones, say hello to US Patent 6725399 – Requirements based software testing method.

“The six key process areas are development of a test plan, development of test cases to support the plan, development of an environment to simulate the technical environment in which the program will operate, test execution in which the tests are executed in a technical environment, compiling and analyzing the results and finally reporting the results in a form whereby the end user can determine both the feasibility of the software system for the specific requirements and any areas where additional testing or modifications are necessary.”

Doesn’t that sound like the day job of every tester on the planet ?
