Main Activities of Software Testing Services Companies
To begin with, you need to know that a testing activity, which is easiest to be observed, is execution of test cases. But so that the process can be more effective and efficient, its test plans describe the scope and activities of the ongoing project; they should include time required for: development of test scripts, preparation for test execution and evaluation of test results.
Main test process consists of the following areas of activities:
- Planning and management
- Analysis and design
- Implementation and commercialization
- Assessment of exit criteria and creation of reports
- Steps to complete the test
Even though there is sufficient logical sequence in the arrangement of these activities, they may overlap or happen simultaneously. However, as a rule, software testing services companies can adapt these areas of activities to a specified system or project.
Let us briefly review some of these:
Test planning & test management
Test planning includes activities aimed at defining testing goals and describing testing tasks so as to achieve these goals.
Test management is the practice of managing manual and automated tests; it is a series of planning, organizing, scheduling, executing, tracking and control activities carried out to fulfill the project goals. Test management involves comparing the actual state of things with expected one and drawing up test execution reports including deviation reports. For the test management process to be effective, testing activities need to be reviewed throughout the entire project life cycle.
Performance testing companies check whether software programs can perform their functions correctly under various workloads. This kind of verification helps to identify and eliminate various performance bottlenecks and ensure failure-free operation of your software.
Test planning activity includes data obtained during the review and management.
Test analysis & test design
Test analysis and design is the activity wherein the general testing goals are transformed into tangible test conditions and scenarios. It has the following major tasks:
- Review of the test basis (such as software integrity level (risk level), requirements, risk analysis report)
- Assessment of test basis and test objects / items
- Identification and prioritization of test cases based on the analysis of items being tested, product specifications, architecture and behavior of the software
Mobile app testing services appear to be extremely useful when it comes to ensuring smooth performance of software for hand-held gadgets.
Again, there is no other way of finding out how your software app works across various platforms and devices but to test it for mobile and OS compatibility under guidance of experienced Ukrainian qa providers.
