Specification Requires Testing… Really?
Chris and Fred discuss scenarios where it is (for whatever reason) impossible to demonstrate reliability through testing.

So … does this mean that the customer can’t get something that is reliable if we can’t test for it? … can customers even ask for it? Of course they can. The customer knows what they want.

This is how it works for nuclear power plants … so what makes your organization special? Listen to this podcast if this intrigues you.
