test design Questions

All of us have our own view of what MUST be the proper New Product Development phases. I believe those are:

1. Ideation: Come-up with an idea you think it could be a market winner.

2. Patenting: Evaluate the merit of getting Intellectual Property (IP) protection for your new product idea.

3. Design: Develop non or partially functioning models of your new product idea and start soliciting user feedback.

4. Feasibility Proof: Perform various technical/business studies to determine IF your new product idea is feasible.

5. Development: Develop a product/process to yield a number of fully functioning new product prototypes as if each of them were to be used by the final user/customer.

6. Controlled Field Use Trial: Let potential users use the new product as IF it were purchased by them and generate feedback based on a previously approved protocol.

7. Design-Verification/Validation: Fine-tune new product design/development and complete design verification/validation studies to confirm the new product meets User Requirement Specifications (URSs) per its respective Labeling Claims.

8. Regulatory Filing (if required): Prepare any required documentation and submit it to appropriate Regulatory Authorities for securing their approval to market it.

9. Full Field Use Trial: Repeat above phase 6 but using a comprehensive pool of potential users/customers.

10. Scaling-up: Scale-up your process so your new product could be manufactured in high quality/low cost conditions.

11. Technology-Transfer: Develop documents' list for new product's production in high volume.

12. Process Validation: Validate your process so it produces final product consistently meeting specifications.

13. Manufacturing: Start manufacture and ship product to market.

14. Launch: Launch product and monitor its acceptance by the user.

15. Line Maintenance/ Improvement: Compile, analyze user feedback and continuously improve product.

What is your opinion? Please explain, if you could.

My preference would be tools that have record and playback functionality.  There are lots of automated tools for Windows, but only a few for CentOS Linux.

Each QA automation team has its own specific priorities when choosing a test automation tool to facilitate the UI regression testing process. But what approach is more popular: a lightweight solution which is simple and quick grasp (but will not cover all your regression testing scope) or a full-scale test automation framework which can do much more but will require lots of time to create and maintain the test coverage? What would you/your team/your manager(s) choose and why?

Hi,

I am a test automation specialist and test manager and I am seaching for ideas in which way I have to change my mindset, my knowledge and tool expierience when beeing part of a development team or company for developping digital services and products?

There are many tools available in the market for automation testing.But which is the best tool to start with who does not have experience in Automation testing but has worked on manual testing.

As I know, here's the list of some automation testing tools that i think they are the best at this moment:

1. Testcomplete https://smartbear.com (It's a paid automation tool. It's an little tricky to learn and use but quite similar to Selenium)

2. Katalon Studio: https://www.katalon.com (It's a free automation tool - enhances Selenium and Appium with a complete test automation framework that helps you start testing in no time)

3. Tosca Testsuit: www.tricentis.com (There are many more features that are useful for automation but there can really be a need for some coding effort to integrate with your application)

And anything else?

Our company uses Storyline and Captivate tools to create ELearning courses. These output in flash. I'd like to setup some simple automation tests for our regression suites. Ideally at no cost. Appreciate any inputs. Thanks

I am using selenium ide for finding the locators,here I got a locator 'link=History of *' which works in selenium ide but when I use the same locator in web driver code it fails.

Says " Unable to locate element: {"method":"link text","selector":"History of .*"} ".
Does selenium support regular expressions in its locators?

 

Please help me out in this.

There is a test case option inside of Microsoft Team Foundation Server.  Does anyone here use it and how effective have you found it to be?  

In the Quality Center Requirements module, should we link test cases at the EPIC or story level for traceability and coverage

Which tool is the best for Test Management. It must be suitable for any type of software projects and it can be integrated with any third party issue tracking tools[eg. bugzilla etc.,].
