Although proper testing requires substantial amount of time and effort in planning and execution, there are situations when time is limited and full-fledged testing runs against the time limitation. How can testers handle such situations?
When facing a limited time frame available for testing, we need to effectively use the available time and resources. Starting the testing of the project with an assumption that “We can’t test everything, no matter what” will really help in prioritizing tasks. Do a risk analysis to identify functionalities with the highest risks and functionalities that will be used by the maximum number of users. Do an analysis about what to test first and in which sequence.

  • 1. How to Test on Tight Testing Schedule Although proper testing requires substantial amount of time and effort in planning and execution, there are situations when time is limited and full-fledged testing runs against the time limitation. How can testers handle such situations? When facing a limited time frame available for testing, we need to effectively use the available time and resources. Starting the testing of the project with an assumption that “We can’t test everything, no matter what” will really help in prioritizing tasks. Do a risk analysis to identify functionalities with the highest risks and functionalities that will be used by the maximum number of users. Do an analysis about what to test first and in which sequence. Also, preparing a checklist that focuses on major key areas covered during testing will help testers, by ensuring that they are not missed out in the tight scheduled testing. The checklist should cover Functionalities that are most visible to users and those which are frequently used. Functionalities that are very important for the intended purpose of the project. Areas that contain more risk, i.e., those areas/items when broken, will bring the entire application down to ground Newly added functionalities, since they are the least tested ones Complex functionalities that are easy to misunderstand Functionalities that had recent updates or bug fixes Functionalities that were developed under schedule pressure Functionalities that could cause the most customer support complaints Functionalities which, if they go wrong, could result in bad publicity This is clearly not the only exclusive list of guidelines to test under tight testing schedule. But still, it covers many important areas that usually need attention. With the available checklist, proceed with testing the project and help the team deliver the project in time with the expected quality output.Visit IVESIA’S WEBSITE Follow us at LINKEDIN and TWITTER
