It's difficult to quantify the true state of a test effort. Often, it's measured by quantity of work combined with deadline compliance. But if this is the case, then the true level of quality remains unknown. The Requirements-Based Testing (RBT) process offers a set of metrics that can be utilized throughout the development cycle. These metrics can provide an accurate picture of the test effort at any given time.
Contrary to popular belief, test measurement is not a mysterious art. Rather, it's a vital part of test management. This presentation will assist those new to test measurement-and those that have been intimidated by measurement and its complexities in the past-discover that test measurement can and should be a part of your test plan. Learn metrics and techniques that are easy to understand as well as implement.
To many organizations, the concept of metrics is foreign. Even after taking training on metrics usage, few organizations take advantage of the value metrics can bring. This paper presents the special challenges online companies face, describes a practical plan for rolling out
test metrics, and shows how test metrics collection and analysis can reduce cycle time and provide meaningful information to the development team.
Elaine Soat presents an easy set of measurements to use during system testing (QA test cycle). Examine measurements taken from defect tracking and application coverage to projected testing hours versus actual testig hours. Learn how such process and measurement information is evaluated and used for proposed process improvements. Gain the ability to do comparison reporting to measure successes of process improvement within your QA test cycle.
