The first step for planning a test involves developing a high-level test strategy. In general, the testing strategy should determine the scope of a test, the types of testing techniques that should be used to detect defects, the procedures that notify the builder of qualify defects and help to eliminate these defects, entry and exit criteria for testing against which various tests are performed. Implementing the principle of close integration of development and testing in order to optimize the development schedule, the testing strategy should describe different testing activities to be carried out across the entire development life cycle. When formulating an overall strategy it is necessary to consider both static and dynamic tests.

If automation is used to control various test process activities, the automation strategy should be regarded as an integral part of the overall testing strategy. Automation requires independent but parallel test effort that must be carefully planned and executed only when it does not lead to a decrease in test efficiency. Quality control companies actively participate in qa analyses to monitor organizational processes and ensure that they meet specifications. Make sure that your products are safe, easy-to-use, consistent, feature-complete, reliable, etcetera to appeal to your customers.

You can use the following approach to formulating the testing strategy:

  1. Determine the scope of a test by analyzing documents containing requirements for the software product (technical specifications) in order to find out what needs to be tested. Consider testing activities that are not directly derived from requirements documents, such as installation testing and incremental testing, usability testing and compatibility testing which in turn allows to understand whether or not the product is compatible with other types of equipment operated in the customer’s environment.
  2. Define the approach to testing by selecting static and dynamic tests done during each stage of development. Besides, you will need to include descriptions of all the work products that should be prepared by the testing team.
  3. Define entry and exit criteria for each testing phase, as well as all quality control check points but this task requires participation of testing specialists.
  4. Determine the automation strategy in the event that you are going to automate any type of testing activity.
