Firmware is a combination of software and hardware. Application software are programs that addresses an organization's processes and functions as opposed to system software which enables the computer to function. Embedded systems are built-in modules for a specific purpose, for example SCARF. Area: 7 656. Using test data as part of a comprehensive test of program controls in a continuous online manner is called a/an:
A. test data/deck.B. base case system evaluation.C. integrated test facility (ITF).D. parallel simulation. The correct answer is: B. base case system evaluation. Explanation: Base case system evaluation uses test data sets developed as part of comprehensive testing programs. It is used to verify correct systems operations before acceptance, as well as periodic validation. Test data/deck simulates transactions through real programs. An ITF creates fictitious files in the database with test transactions processed simultaneously with live input. Parallel simulation is the production of data processed using computer programs that simulate application program logic. Area: 7 657. Which of the following ensures completeness and accuracy of accumulated data? The correct answer is: A. Processing control procedures Explanation: Processing controls ensure the completeness and accuracy of accumulated data, for example, editing and run-to-run totals. Data file control procedures ensure that only authorized processing occurs to stored data, for example transaction logs. Output controls ensure that data delivered to users will be presented, formatted and delivered in a consistent and secure manner, for example report distribution. Application controls are a general terminology composing all kinds of controls used in an application. Area: 7 658. Access rules normally are included in which of the following documentation categories?
