Hi,


We have a base products which are Accounts Payable solution,Desktop Publishing, General Ledger etc.Configuration and customization to these products has been taken care in order to provide a solution to Customer.
Recently we have revamped the teams and testing team is formed.This testing team works both on Implementation System testing and as well as Base Product System and integration Testing.

Now, I want to define a Process Complience mechanism for this testing and release Process.Can anyone please suggest what all i need to concentrate on.

Basically I want to come up with
-Audit Mechanism for the Testing
-Define Metric collection during System Testing Phase
-After each round/Cycle of system testing , a defect analysis to ensure that defect prevension plan is carried out


Can anyone please suggest me on this.:confused:

Thanks,
Aparna.P

This is a very big question which is addressed in standard software engineering text books. Such processes will be heavily influenced by the specific technologies that are used and the complexities of the product.

The question seems to combine auditing the testing process with auditing the testing process. These are issues that would be better separated: first design the testing process, then consider how to audit and improve it.

What's an audit mechanism for testing? Does it mean auditing the testing process or using tests to perform some kind of audit?

The obvious metrics are number of bugs detected and their severity. Another useful metric is productivity, perhaps lines of code tested per person-day. It's also useful to measure test coverage, perhaps the percentage of lines of code that were actually tested.

I don't understand how the test people are expected to plan defect prevention. While their primary role is to detect defects, they are not alone. Inspections and reviews of design and code will also contribute to defect detection. Defect prevention then is a collaborative effort amongst all departments involved.

Hope this helps,
Pat
