Software users will be able to test their software to assure themselves that it is consistent with published CIBSE methods and practices. The tests will enable software users to carry out a range of basic checks on the software they use, and to demonstrate that they have undertaken basic initial validation of the software to quality assurance and professional indemnity insurance practitioners. This set of simple tests is intended to develop a culture of software testing and validation to the industry.
