Create a scenario in which you are responsible for defining the test strategy for a product (that requires software for it to work correctly) or for a software-only product or service.
Choose an existing product such as an application on your mobile device, an application on the computer you use for school or even Google Glass™, Apple Watch™, Dropbox™, etc. Alternatively, you can generate a product idea from your own imagination.
Write an introduction defining the product and what it does. (If it is your own product idea, you may need to spend more time on this part of the Assignment. You must provide your instructor a complete understanding of the product.
Then, consider the six testing phases as listed below.
- Integration testing
- Acceptance testing
- System testing
- Scalability testing
- Security testing
- Stress testing
For each of these phases, provide the following:
- Define how the phase of testing is to be performed.
- Describe the testing environment and how you will determine pass or fail.
- Explain what hardware will be needed.
- Explain what software will be needed.
- Describe the roles of the staff/team required to perform the test.
- Explain the recourse if a test fails (note that the recourse may be different depending on the test)
Your viewpoint and purpose should be clearly established and sustained.
Lastly, provide information regarding the tool(s) you will use to document your findings.
