At present many different people work at a software development project. It involves programmers, experts in manual and automated testing, domain knowledge specialists, managers, etc. Unfortunately, all these people are not always on the same page.
Often misunderstandings relate to results of mobile application testing, desktop testing, web site testing. Quality assurance team may be blamed for defects in the software product that appear after the release, delay of the product release and other problems.
As a matter of fact, responsibility for the application quality rests with all the project members.
Test engineers should discuss with other project members software testing goals and the project peculiarities. The discussion helps to avoid many misunderstandings, streamlines the testing process and helps to save time and efforts.
Testers Should Clarify:
- tasks of the testing process;
- testing types that must be performed;
- the application requirements.
The test team should show the other project parties the test plan, talk about methods and tools that will be used during load testing, security testing, functional testing and so on.
Communication between project members must be well organized and professional. Everybody should keep in mind that all of them are working to achieve the same goal – creation of a successful program. Such organization of work and interaction between the project members proved its efficiency.
