Functional Test Management

Functional testing answers the fundamental questions “does our product actually work?” and “can the user do what we expected?” This method of software testing tests the functional requirements of an app, verifying whether the software works as per customer needs.

Testinium provides the essential functional testing techniques your product requires and hundreds of tailored solutions to make sure it is ready for the next step.

We have realized the risks after the structural test transformation and started managing effectively. We ensured that our product is being developed via a test-driven process

Functional Testing Best Practices

Any functionality is tested by providing inputs, observing its output and comparing the actual results with the expected ones. Here are best practices that may come handy while you perform functional testing:

1. Collect Information Required to Perform Testing

It is crucial to know what is to be tested, whats is the procedure and what is the plan, for functional testing. Collect the information and test the critical things first. The development team has information about critical user commands and processes. Test Team shoud prepare the document or matrix to link the product to the requirement and to the test cases. When any changes happen on product, documents and matrices should be modify.

2. Make Test Plan and Test Cases

Testing the main functions of an application.

Test cases are nothing but input data based on the functionality’s specification. These test cases should be arranged and ranked as per priority to reduce delay and risk. The development and business teams should review these test plans together.

3. Execute the Test

Actual functionality and test plans need to match to execute the test properly. Test cases should be written in such a way that it can be modified if necessary with the changing needs of the product. Problems and its solutions can be documented for further analysis.

4. Consider the Automated Testing

Automated testing is done to improve quality of the product or software and also to save time. The tester has to decide about which cases should be automated. 

Automated testing is slightly costlier in short span; but, in the long run it is more beneficial for the product. As Testinium, we suggest you to avoid performing automation on things that can be cheaply and effectively done by manual testing.

5. Manage Defects with Defect Reporting System

Many people working on same functionality may result in repetition of defect reports, incorrect order of issue solving, consideration of wrong defects and much more. To avoid this, centralized defect reporting system that need to includes defect reporting and verifying, ranking of defects as per priority and information about the assignment of tasks should be created.

6. Reporting of Test Results

Many people working on same functionality may result in repetition of defect reports, incorrect order of issue solving, consideration of wrong defects and much more. To avoid this, centralized defect reporting system that need to includes defect reporting and verifying, ranking of defects as per priority and information about the assignment of tasks should be created.

Overall, test result report should be presented in a clear and simple way for understanding of the development team.

7. Analysis

Problems and options in both testing and development can be detected during analysis. It helps in improving procedures followed in product development. Analysis is helpful to make product success.

We now have constant feedback loop about the quality of our product thanks to Testinium. As a result, our agility in Continuous Delivery increased tremendously.
