Test Documentation as Early Warning of Errors

by Nataliia Vasylyna | November 23, 2016 8:02 am

Any QA company tends to complete software testing[1] in time and as far as feasible to curb expenditures.

Each software test process starts with the requirements’ examination. Unfortunately, documentation provided by the client frequently differs in degree but not in kind. Sometimes this entails critical circumstances for the project, especially the day before release.

Agree that after many weeks of manual testing[2], then some more time of automation testing, it will be not so good to detect that the registration form does not have validation. This happened because this item was absent in the primary documentation so the developer just missed this.

In order to avoid such kind of situation, one suggests executing documentation testing[3]. It means that testers begin their activity before the developers start writing code lines. In fact, this is non-functional testing – a procedure which is performed as the preventive way of early discovering of potential errors.

Why Should Documentation Checking Be Obligatory Executed?

Thereafter, requirement testing checks the future system before its direct creation. It helps to define some inexactnesses and ambiguity of task, reveal whether the product is functional and meets the market needs.
