Testing Cycle

25 March, 2014
Although testing varies between organizations, there is a cycle to testing:

1. Requirements Analysis: Testing should begin in the requirements phase of the software development life cycle.

2. Design Analysis: During the design phase, testers work with developers in determining what aspects of a design are
testable and under what parameter those tests work.

3. Test Planning: Test Strategy, Test Plan(s), Test Bed creation.

4. Test Development: Test Procedures, Test Scenarios, Test Cases, Test Scripts to use in testing software.

5. Test Execution: Testers execute the software based on the plans and tests and report any errors found to the development
team.

6. Test Reporting: Once testing is completed, testers generate metrics and make final reports on their test effort and
whether or not the software tested is ready for release.

7. Retesting the Defects
