Software Test Planning Simplified
Software testing is as much an intense series of mental aerobics — noting requirements, identifying logical gaps and assessing usability — as an exercise in thoughtful organization. Test environments must be designated. Functionality documented. Test steps sequenced.
Teams tasked with creating a test plan must balance two diverse objectives. The first, building a tool that categorizes test cases priorities and results in a workable way for team members. The second, organizing the resource so project leaders can easily assess progress and quality. The right tool designed and customized strategically can do both.
- Priority functionality
- Steps to execute tests
- Expected test results
- Individual test cases separated by platform
- Implementation stage
- Project summary
- Pass/fail results for critical, important and useful cases
- Environment access information
