Vigilant Testers, Powerful Performance

Every phase of software development is under the observant eye of our software QA team. They adhere standard practices in order to avoid even the overlooked bugs or errors. Mature and industry-practiced testing processes are followed at the company. From requirement gathering to functional testing and deployment of a project, QA lifecycle is defined.

Software QA plan involves all the use cases and testing activities required to achieve the quality objective. Our processes are customized as per the project methodologies like Waterfall, Agile, Spiral, and Iterative.

Step 1: Review Requirements and the Documentation

Not only the business team but the QA team is part of the requirement gathering phase. When the requirements are being documented, they are reviewed on following basis:

-Clarity
-Consistency
-Redundancies
-Execution
-Verification

Key advantage of this phase is, errors are being detected on early stage and the risk associated with cost could be reduced. Also, documentation quality improves hence makes sure the accuracy of the cost estimates.

Step 2: Test Cases Preparation

After documentation comes test cases which are in actual the actions QA engineers will be going to execute in order to make sure certain software is working according to set standard. We use both manual and automated tools for test case generation. Automated test cases help in tracking the metrics.

Step 3: Test Cases Designing

As soon as the development phase of the project ends, QA team starts running prepared test cases. There are different tests for different scenarios. Smoke test – In this type of testing, a module or a software is being tested lightly for its core functions. After passing this test, a software is forwarded for further testing. Integration test – components of the software should work integrated with a system.

Performance test – the behavior of a system should be checked at normal and peak load times which comes under load test. In stress testing, systems break down on critical load is being evaluated. Security test – protection level of a proposed and developed solution is tested in this type. Cross-browser test – cross-browser compatibility is tested as if all the units and the functions of the software works smoothly. Regression test – for bugs detection in a code, usually conducted when a new feature is added in the software.

Step 4: Reporting

Performance of overall software is being checked based on the number of tests. After testing, a QA engineer records all bugs in a tracking system which usually is a project management system.
PMS tools help team members informed about the tasks in real time. Also, a priority level is assigned to each task from high to low which is further based on the number of resources and timeline available.

Step 5: Bug Fixing and Verification

Our teams use industry standard PMS tools and after the developer fixes the bug, he reports back on the task update being reported by the QA person. QA team verifies if the bug is fixed properly and then completes the tasks being generated over the tool.

Rule of thumb for this stage is, no bug will be considered fixed until and unless it’s verified.
