Functional correctness of software
This refers to the extent to which a program satisfies its specification and fulfills the user‘s mission objectives. Functional correctness of software can be measured by performing a structured walkthrough (Specifically a program review) which establishes whether a program satisfies its specification. The functional correctness of a program can thus be determined from the number of issues raised during the structured walkthrough. Functional correctness of software may also be measured by performing black box testing. The number of errors discovered during the testing exercise would thus indicate the functional correctness of the software.
