What is the PDCA cycle and where testing fits in?Correct answer is 'There are four steps in a normal software development process. In short, these steps are referred to as PDCA.PDCA stands for Plan, Do, Check, Act.Plan: It defines the goal and the plan for achieving that goal.Do/ Execute: It depends on the plan strategy decided during the planning stage. It is done according to this phase.Check: This is the testing part of the software development phase. It is used to ensure that we are moving according to plan and getting the desired result.Act: This step is used to solve if there any issue has occurred during the check cycle. It takes appropriate action accordingly and revises the plan again.The developers do the "planning and building" of the project while testers do the "check" part of the project.'.

Which of the following statements concerning the productivity levels of engineers can be inferred from the passage?Directions: Answer the question based on the following passage.I think Indian firms have achieved the highest levels of efficiency in the world software outsourcing industry. Some researchers have assumed that Indian firms use the same programming languages and techniques as Chinese firms but have benefited from their familiarity with English, the language used to write software code. However, if this were true, then one would expect software vendors in Hong Kong, where most people speak English, to perform not worse than Indian vendors do. However, this is obviously not the case.Other researchers link high Indian productivity to higher levels of human resource investment per engineer. But a historical perspective leads to a different conclusion. When the two top Indian vendors matched and then doubled Chinese productivity levels in the mid-eighties, human resource investment per employee was comparable to that of Chinese vendors. Furthermore, by the late eighties, the amount of fixed assets required to develop one software package was roughly equivalent in India and in China. Since human resource investment was not higher in India, it had to be other factors that led to higher productivity.A more fruitful explanation may lie with Indian strategic approach in outsourcing. Indian software vendors did not simply seek outsourced contract more effectively: they made aggressive strategy in outsourcing. For instance, most software firms of India were initially set up to outsource the contract in western countries, such as the United States. By contrary, most Chinese firms seem to position their business in China, a promising yet under-developed market. However, rampant piracy in China took almost 90 percent of potential market, making it impossible for most Chinese firms to obtain sufficient compensation for the investment on development and research, let alone thrive in competitive environment.a)Before the 1980s, the productivity levels of the top Indian software firms were matched by those of Chinese software firms.b)The official language of a country has a large effect on the productivity levels of its software developers.c)During mid 1980s, Indian software vendors surpassed the efficiency levels of their Chinese counterparts.d)The greater the number of engineers a software firm has, the higher a firm's productivity level.Correct answer is option 'C'.

Software and intellectual property have come a long way to provided new dimension to the markets. For a firm to be satisfied with the performance and functionality of an existing product was to risk losing market share to a competitor that targeted the same market. The nature of competition in the industry has been such that, if there is a perceived market for a particular software product, someone will build it, and someone else will, as well, said Harry C. Reinstein, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the Aion Corp.While many software firms were aware of what intellectual property protection applied to software primarily trade secret law and copyright law, the actions of most of the firms suggested the legal concerns rarely entered into product-development decisions. The collective behavior of firms served to achieve the constitutional aim on which intellectual property law based: to promote the progress of science and the useful arts. More specifically, the software industry achieved the intent of intellectual property law, that is, to advance the public good, an objective widely interpreted to mean the generation and wide dissemination of ideas and innovations.Todays legal ferment indicates that software firms are much more attuned to intellectual property issues. And why not copyright law and patent law exist to encourage innovation. Both award limited monopolies to thosewho invest their resources, effort, and ingenuity in developing products that society may deem useful. Thus intellectual property law offers the potential for private financial gain as an incentive for undertaking the risks of innovation.To Francis D. Fisher, adviser to the Educational Technology Group at the Harvard Law School concerns that intellectuals property protection seem at odds with the industrys historically high rate of innovation. It is not enough to suggest that the incentives of monopoly are needed, Fisher maintained. We need evidence. We need to shift the burden of proof, so that those who believe that the public interest gains from extending property rights to software must prove their case. Among those who believe this case is unproven is Richard Stallman, whose Free Software Foundation and League for Progra-mming Freedom provide a test of his conviction that innovation is best served absent prices based on commercial monopoly. While Firms be unconvinced of the need to accord strict intellectual property right to software, by competitors and user is widespread. Firms trying to position themselves in the market to earn returns on their investment often devote considerable thought to protection strategies.Q.Which one of the following is a correct deduction from the given passage?a)Francis D. Fisher and Richard Stallman are of the same opinion as to software development and intellectual property regime.b)Views of Harry C. Reinstein and Francis D.

What is the PDCA cycle and where testing fits in?Correct answer is 'There are four steps in a normal software development process. In short, these steps are referred to as PDCA.PDCA stands for Plan, Do, Check, Act.Plan: It defines the goal and the plan for achieving that goal.Do/ Execute: It depends on the plan strategy decided during the planning stage. It is done according to this phase.Check: This is the testing part of the software development phase. It is used to ensure that we are moving according to plan and getting the desired result.Act: This step is used to solve if there any issue has occurred during the check cycle. It takes appropriate action accordingly and revises the plan again.The developers do the "planning and building" of the project while testers do the "check" part of the project.'.

Which of the following statements concerning the productivity levels of engineers can be inferred from the passage?Directions: Answer the question based on the following passage.I think Indian firms have achieved the highest levels of efficiency in the world software outsourcing industry. Some researchers have assumed that Indian firms use the same programming languages and techniques as Chinese firms but have benefited from their familiarity with English, the language used to write software code. However, if this were true, then one would expect software vendors in Hong Kong, where most people speak English, to perform not worse than Indian vendors do. However, this is obviously not the case.Other researchers link high Indian productivity to higher levels of human resource investment per engineer. But a historical perspective leads to a different conclusion. When the two top Indian vendors matched and then doubled Chinese productivity levels in the mid-eighties, human resource investment per employee was comparable to that of Chinese vendors. Furthermore, by the late eighties, the amount of fixed assets required to develop one software package was roughly equivalent in India and in China. Since human resource investment was not higher in India, it had to be other factors that led to higher productivity.A more fruitful explanation may lie with Indian strategic approach in outsourcing. Indian software vendors did not simply seek outsourced contract more effectively: they made aggressive strategy in outsourcing. For instance, most software firms of India were initially set up to outsource the contract in western countries, such as the United States. By contrary, most Chinese firms seem to position their business in China, a promising yet under-developed market. However, rampant piracy in China took almost 90 percent of potential market, making it impossible for most Chinese firms to obtain sufficient compensation for the investment on development and research, let alone thrive in competitive environment.a)Before the 1980s, the productivity levels of the top Indian software firms were matched by those of Chinese software firms.b)The official language of a country has a large effect on the productivity levels of its software developers.c)During mid 1980s, Indian software vendors surpassed the efficiency levels of their Chinese counterparts.d)The greater the number of engineers a software firm has, the higher a firm's productivity level.Correct answer is option 'C'.

Software and intellectual property have come a long way to provided new dimension to the markets. For a firm to be satisfied with the performance and functionality of an existing product was to risk losing market share to a competitor that targeted the same market. The nature of competition in the industry has been such that, if there is a perceived market for a particular software product, someone will build it, and someone else will, as well, said Harry C. Reinstein, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the Aion Corp.While many software firms were aware of what intellectual property protection applied to software primarily trade secret law and copyright law, the actions of most of the firms suggested the legal concerns rarely entered into product-development decisions. The collective behavior of firms served to achieve the constitutional aim on which intellectual property law based: to promote the progress of science and the useful arts. More specifically, the software industry achieved the intent of intellectual property law, that is, to advance the public good, an objective widely interpreted to mean the generation and wide dissemination of ideas and innovations.Todays legal ferment indicates that software firms are much more attuned to intellectual property issues. And why not copyright law and patent law exist to encourage innovation. Both award limited monopolies to thosewho invest their resources, effort, and ingenuity in developing products that society may deem useful. Thus intellectual property law offers the potential for private financial gain as an incentive for undertaking the risks of innovation.To Francis D. Fisher, adviser to the Educational Technology Group at the Harvard Law School concerns that intellectuals property protection seem at odds with the industrys historically high rate of innovation. It is not enough to suggest that the incentives of monopoly are needed, Fisher maintained. We need evidence. We need to shift the burden of proof, so that those who believe that the public interest gains from extending property rights to software must prove their case. Among those who believe this case is unproven is Richard Stallman, whose Free Software Foundation and League for Progra-mming Freedom provide a test of his conviction that innovation is best served absent prices based on commercial monopoly. While Firms be unconvinced of the need to accord strict intellectual property right to software, by competitors and user is widespread. Firms trying to position themselves in the market to earn returns on their investment often devote considerable thought to protection strategies.Q.Which one of the following is a correct deduction from the given passage?a)Francis D. Fisher and Richard Stallman are of the same opinion as to software development and intellectual property regime.b)Views of Harry C. Reinstein and Francis D. Fisher are synonymous with software development and intellectual property regime.c)Francis D. Fisher and Richard Stallman are of opposite opinion as to software development and intellectual property regime.d)None of the aboveCorrect answer is option 'C'. Can you explain this answer?

For a firm to be satisfied with the performance and functionality of an existing product was to risk losing market share to a competitor that targeted the same market. The nature of competition in the industry has been such that, if there is a perceived market for a particular software product, someone will build it, and someone else will, as well, said Harry C. Reinstein, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the Aion Corp.While many software firms were aware of what intellectual property protection applied to software primarily trade secret law and copyright law, the actions of most of the firms suggested the legal concerns rarely entered into product-development decisions. The collective behavior of firms served to achieve the constitutional aim on which intellectual property law based: to promote the progress of science and the useful arts. More specifically, the software industry achieved the intent of intellectual property law, that is, to advance the public good, an objective widely interpreted to mean the generation and wide dissemination of ideas and innovations.Todays legal ferment indicates that software firms are much more attuned to intellectual property issues. And why not copyright law and patent law exist to encourage innovation. Both award limited monopolies to thosewho invest their resources, effort, and ingenuity in developing products that society may deem useful. Thus intellectual property law offers the potential for private financial gain as an incentive for undertaking the risks of innovation.To Francis D. Fisher, adviser to the Educational Technology Group at the Harvard Law School concerns that intellectuals property protection seem at odds with the industrys historically high rate of innovation. It is not enough to suggest that the incentives of monopoly are needed, Fisher maintained. We need evidence. We need to shift the burden of proof, so that those who believe that the public interest gains from extending property rights to software must prove their case. Among those who believe this case is unproven is Richard Stallman, whose Free Software Foundation and League for Progra-mming Freedom provide a test of his conviction that innovation is best served absent prices based on commercial monopoly. While Firms be unconvinced of the need to accord strict intellectual property right to software, by competitors and user is widespread. Firms trying to position themselves in the market to earn returns on their investment often devote considerable thought to protection strategies.Q.Does Francis D. Fisher consider intellectual property rights important for growth and development of software?a)Yes, as software does not require intellectual property.b)Yes, software growth is possible only through commercial monopoly.c)Yes, strong intellectual property regime is not a requirement for software innovation.d)Yes, software patents are required for giving impetus to innovation in this field.Correct answer is option 'D'. Can you explain this answer?
