In 2006, the most important Canadian distributor and retailer of hardware products was faced with formalizing its internal processes in response to the requirements of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act. This publication is a follow-up information to our first paper on process conformance and audits. The software testing process and how conformance to the documented process was achieved within 3 months is described. This research paper presents an introduction, the testing process itself, the process conformance measurement and the results obtained during the first three months of measurement.
