Sample text

1: Trust The functional acceptance test for a new software development project is almost finished. A lot of tests were run over the last couple of weeks, and there’s one week to go. A concern emerges during a meeting with the maintenance organisation: all of the live data has to be migrated to the new database. The system administrator knows that tests have been developed for this, but he recently heard about a situation that rarely occurs and is now wondering if it will also be tested. The test coordinator is starting to feel insecure.

There are also errors and the test project has its own progress and bottlenecks. In order to turn all this data into useful information, the tester must be able to see the main features (overview) and explain the details (insight). The tester provides overview and insight by producing a clear test report in which he specifies the quality of the test object and the progress of the test project. The tester uses clear language to describe the consequences for the anticipated goal. This is how he contributes to the insight that is required to choose the right solution.

1 Context of the Test Project Testing is usually carried out as part of a software adaptation process. The fact that a system has gone live does not mean that it will never change. Many a maintenance organization regularly releases a maintenance release to keep the system running and to apply small changes. Because the maintenance organization regularly produces maintenance releases, it automatically gains the experience required to analyze, specify, build and test changes. This creates a standard approach that works as long as the changes are small and the activities are straightforward.
