I am the QA manager for a small software company. This is the only software firm I've worked for, so I have no idea how things are done elsewhere. I'm hoping someone can give me some ideas. Here is the problem: I write a test procedure for a function in one of our products. Then a developer makes a change but doesn't update the design document. I report it as a bug, and he responds, "Oh, it doesn't work that way any more." It happens often enough that it's getting quite expensive in terms of unnecessary hours spent. The developers blame tight schedules and say they don't have time to both write code and update design docs, and they are probably correct. How do other firms handle these changes? Do they have a specific person in charge of change management, tasked with keeping the necessary documents updated? Thanks for your help.
