  • 6. Early test design • test design finds faults • faults found early are cheaper to fix • most significant faults found first • faults prevented, not built in • no additional effort, re-schedule test design • changing requirements caused by test design Early test design helps to build quality, stops fault multiplication © AiTi Education 6
  • 7. Experience report: Phase 1 Phase 1: Plan 2 mo 2 mo dev test test 150 faults 1st mo. 50 faults users not happy © AiTi Education 7 Quality fraught, lots of dev overtime Actual "has to go in" but didn't work
  • 8. Experience report: Phase 2 Phase 2: Plan 2 mo 6 wks dev test test 50 faults 1st mo. 0 faults happy users! © AiTi Education 8 Quality smooth, not much for dev to do Actual acc test: full week (vs half day) on time
  • 9. VV&T © AiTi Education 9 • Verification • the process of evaluating a system or component to determine whether the products of the given development phase satisfy the conditions imposed at the start of that phase [BS 7925-1] • Validation • determination of the correctness of the products of software development with respect to the user needs and requirements [BS 7925-1] • Testing • the process of exercising software to verify that it satisfies specified requirements and to detect faults

  • 12. How would you test this spec? • A computer program plays chess with one user. It displays the board and the pieces on the screen. Moves are made by dragging pieces. © AiTi Education 12
  • 13. “Testing is expensive” • Compared to what? • What is the cost of NOT testing, or of faults missed that should have been found in test? – Cost to fix faults escalates the later the fault is found – Poor quality software costs more to use • users take more time to understand what to do • users make more mistakes in using it • morale suffers • => lower productivity • Do you know what it costs your organisation? © AiTi Education 13
  • 14. What do software faults cost? • Have you ever accidentally destroyed a PC? – knocked it off your desk? – poured coffee into the hard disc drive? – dropped it out of a 2nd storey window? • How would you feel? • How much would it cost? © AiTi Education 14

  • 19. How expensive for you? • Do your own calculation – calculate cost of testing • people’s time, machines, tools – calculate cost to fix faults found in testing – calculate cost to fix faults missed by testing • Estimate if no data available – your figures will be the best your company has! © AiTi Education 19 (10 minutes)
  • 20. Overview • Models for testing, economics of testing • High level test planning • Component Testing • Integration testing in the small • System testing (non-functional and functional) • Integration testing in the large • Acceptance testing • Maintenance testing © AiTi Education 20
  • 21. (Before planning for a set of tests) • set organisational test strategy • identify people to be involved (sponsors, testers, QA, development, support, et al.) • examine the requirements or functional specifications (test basis) • set up the test organisation and infrastructure • defining test deliverables & reporting structure See: Structured Testing, an introduction to TMap®, Pol & van Veenendaal, 1998 © AiTi Education 21
  • 22. High level test planning • What is the purpose of a high level test plan? – Who does it communicate to? – Why is it a good idea to have one? • What information should be in a high level test plan? – What is your standard for contents of a test plan? – Have you ever forgotten something important? – What is not included in a test plan? © AiTi Education 22
  • 23. Test Plan 1 • 1 Test Plan Identifier • 2 Introduction – software items and features to be tested – references to project authorisation, project plan, QA plan, CM plan, relevant policies & standards © AiTi Education 23 • 3 Test items – test items including version/revision level – how transmitted (net, disc, CD, etc.) – references to software documentation Source: ANSI/IEEE Std 829-1998, Test Documentation
  • 24. Test Plan 2 • 4 Features to be tested – identify test design specification / techniques • 5 Features not to be tested – reasons for exclusion © AiTi Education 24
  • 25. Test Plan 3 © AiTi Education 25 • 6 Approach – activities, techniques and tools – detailed enough to estimate – specify degree of comprehensiveness (e.g. coverage) and other completion criteria (e.g. faults) – identify constraints (environment, staff, deadlines) • 7 Item Pass/Fail Criteria • 8 Suspension criteria and resumption criteria – for all or parts of testing activities – which activities must be repeated on resumption
  • 26. Test Plan 4 • 9 Test Deliverables – Test plan – Test design specification – Test case specification – Test procedure specification – Test item transmittal reports – Test logs – Test incident reports – Test summary reports © AiTi Education 26

Test Plan 5 © AiTi Education 27 • 10 Testing tasks – including inter-task dependencies & special skills • 11 Environment – physical, hardware, software, tools – mode of usage, security, office space • 12 Responsibilities – to manage, design, prepare, execute, witness, check, resolve issues, providing environment, providing the software to test
  • 28. Test Plan 6 • 13 Staffing and Training Needs • 14 Schedule – test milestones in project schedule – item transmittal milestones – additional test milestones (environment ready) – what resources are needed when • 15 Risks and Contingencies – contingency plan for each identified risk © AiTi Education 28 • 16 Approvals – names and when approved
  • 29. Overview • Models for testing, economics of testing • High level test planning • Component Testing • Integration testing in the small • System testing (non-functional and functional) • Integration testing in the large • Acceptance testing • Maintenance testing © AiTi Education 29
  • 30. Component testing • lowest level • tested in isolation • most thorough look at detail © AiTi Education 30 – error handling – interfaces • usually done by programmer • also known as unit, module, program testing
  • 31. Component test strategy 1 • specify test design techniques and rationale – from Section 3 of the standard* • specify criteria for test completion and rationale – from Section 4 of the standard • document the degree of independence for test design – component author, another person, from different section, from different organisation, non-human * Source: BS 7925-2, Software Component Testing Standard © AiTi Education 31
  • 32. Component test strategy 2 • component integration and environment – isolation, top-down, bottom-up, or mixture – hardware and software • document test process and activities – including inputs and outputs of each activity • affected activities are repeated after any fault fixes or changes • project component test plan – dependencies between component tests © AiTi Education 32
  • 33. Component Test Document Hierarchy Component Test Plan © AiTi Education 33 Source: BS 7925-2, Software Component Testing Standard, Annex A Component Test Strategy Project Component Test Plan Component Test Specification Component Test Report
  • 34. Component test process BEGIN Component Test Planning Component Test Specification Component Test Execution Component Test Recording Checking for Component Test Completion END © AiTi Education 34
  • 35. Component test process © AiTi Education 35 BEGIN Component Test Planning Component Test Specification Component Test Execution Component Test Recording Checking for Component Test Completion END Component test planning - how the test strategy and project test plan apply to the component under test - any exceptions to the strategy - all software the component will interact with (e.g. stubs and drivers
  • 36. Component test process © AiTi Education 36 BEGIN Component Test Planning Component Test Specification Component Test Execution Component Test Recording Checking for Component Test Completion END Component test specification - test cases are designed using the test case design techniques specified in the test plan (Section 3) - Test case: objective initial state of component input expected outcome - test cases should be repeatable
  • 37. Component test process © AiTi Education 37 BEGIN Component Test Planning Component Test Specification Component Test Execution Component Test Recording Checking for Component Test Completion END Component test execution - each test case is executed - standard does not specify whether executed manually or using a test execution tool
  • 38. Component test process © AiTi Education 38 BEGIN Component Test Planning Component Test Specification Component Test Execution Component Test Recording Checking for Component Test Completion END Component test recording - identities & versions of component, test specification - actual outcome recorded & compared to expected outcome - discrepancies logged - repeat test activities to establish removal of the discrepancy (fault in test or verify fix) - record coverage levels achieved for test completion criteria specified in test plan Sufficient to show test activities carried out
  • 39. Component test process © AiTi Education 39 BEGIN Component Test Planning Component Test Specification Component Test Execution Component Test Recording Checking for Component Test Completion END Checking for component test completion - check test records against specified test completion criteria - if not met, repeat test activities - may need to repeat test specification to design test cases to meet completion criteria (e.g. white box)
  • 40. Test design techniques Also a measurement technique? = Yes = No © AiTi Education 40 • “Black box” – Equivalence partitioning – Boundary value analysis – State transition testing – Cause-effect graphing – Syntax testing – Random testing • How to specify other techniques • “White box” – Statement testing – Branch / Decision testing – Data flow testing – Branch condition testing – Branch condition combination testing – Modified condition decision testing – LCSAJ testing
