Software Testing As an Integral Part of Creating a Software Product

How thoroughly the tests are carried out depends on how soon the project will be finalized, and whether there will be a need to subsequently eliminate errors. Testing a software product at different stages of creation is the key to high-quality order execution. A lack of proper testing of a software product can cause a wave of negative reviews and subsequently form a negative attitude towards the program. Recognizing the importance of software testing, reputable software testing services perform all stages of software development.

Steps that Are Needed to Test Software

What should you do to test software?

  • Test design. Test strategy development, test plan development, test case development and documentation.
  • Test run. Analysis of specifications and code. Coding and running test cases.
  • Improving software testing. Conducting research on the results of testing with obtaining information on coverage of source code with test cases or program functionality. Development of recommendations to improve testing.
  • Improving the quality of a software product. Issuing recommendations on how to improve the software as a whole or in order to meet the set requirements and tasks.
  • Optimization of software testing. Development of programs that automatically process source codes and make necessary conclusions on quality.

Types of Testing that Are Used

  • Regression testing. Checking the functionality of the software after making changes.
  • Functional testing. Verify product meets functional requirements and specifications.
  • Load testing. Ensuring the reliability of the software under given conditions. Performance measurement, determination of system configuration.
  • Modular software testing A full cycle of testing individual components for the possibility of integration and use as part of larger systems. Testing source code modules for compliance with design requirements.
  • Optimization testing. Elimination of bottlenecks by improving the algorithms, as well as using the right technologies.
  • Testing the interface. Testing the user interface of the product to check the functional characteristics, usability, understandability and compliance with a certain style.
  • Analysis of the source code. Analysis of the code in accordance with the requirements of the project.
  • Analysis of documentation. Analysis of specifications for completeness and reliability, verification of user instructions and documentation of the software product.
  • General (final) testing “Black Box” testing based on checking the functionality that the product under test should have in accordance with the specification and documentation.

Hope now you have a better understanding of the essential elements of software testing.
