In your context, what does FUT stand for?


I never heard of this test type before (aren't there too many already?) and found two:

  • Friendly User Test
  • Functional Unit Test

Are you referring to one of these two or to some other type of testing?

Feature or function under test.
It is similar to BUT 'Build Under Test', SUT "System Under Test", and MUT "Method ..."
It is intended to be testing isolated to the feature/function, for example medication ordering, and it can have its own test plan or be part of the overall test plan. The methods of testing would depend on the feature/function but generally would focus on that feature/function and not include system or systems integration testing (SIT).
In the case of medication ordering it might include CRUD, iteration, date, encoding, ACL/ACE, enumeration, dictionary, field scope/type, Scientific Notation, referencial integrity, and many other classes of test.

I hope this info is useful to u.Involvement in all phases of the project while performing Functional Unit testing(FUT) , During these phases of testing various test types such as Smoke testing, New Functionality, Regression, Functional end to end, and Risk Based are conducted.

FUT is the short form for Functional Unit Testing. This is usually performed in an SAP system where functionality of each unit is tested to ensure that the overall functionality of the software or application should work as per defined benchmarks.  


You may even call it a function under test kind of testing. However, the goal of the process is all about meeting the functionality related objectives. But it is an approach that helps you to take the product to the market faster and therefore may need you to make frequent iterations on test cases.
