Stages of Full Lifecycle Testing
in 8 steps

1.

Software Requirements Stage

Since a tester approaches the application from the user’s perspective, it is vital that she takes part in the requirements-gathering state of the project (especially true for product-companies). By doing so the tester gets a clear understanding of testing objectives, requirements and QA goals by gathering first hand knowledge from the customer.

In best case scenario:

All three parties; a developer, a tester and a customer all contribute to the planning of the module.

2. QA Strategy Development and Planning.

6MTech believes in well-defined QA strategy because it saves time and money. By testing and problem-solving critical pieces of software at the right time, the project can proceed with great speed due to an overall reduction in work needed.

Good QA strategy prevents the project from entering the all too familiar chaos of multiple software modules being tested, tweaked, re-tested, re-tweaked simultaneously.

At the start of the project, clear plans are put in place regarding the types of tests and trouble-shooting to be performed at various stages.

Broader QA testing plan:

  • Test types, methodologies and tools
  • Duration and objective of each phase
  • Number of features to be tested and test coverage
  • Efforts and human resources required
  • Other QA-related and auxiliary activities (test documentation creation, analysis, reports creation, etc.)

3. Requirements
Testing

6MTech will test your requirements for compliance, completeness and consistency.

Preparation Preparation Preparation

If requirements are incomplete, poorly documented or defined even perfect code itself will become sub-par. For best results, testing must be started before the first line of code is written, during the requirements analysis phase. By testing requirements, we will help you to eliminate most of the possible failures in the solution, as many of them will appear at this stage.

Transparent documentation

Depending on the project, the test documents will vary in detail, form and extensiveness but in all cases it will make the process transparent to you. This improves the quality of the test and shows you what you pay for. This can take place in a variety of documents: approval forms, test cases and test reports, etc.
As the project grows, it is also important that all testing documentation is kept up to date.

4.

Documentation Creation

6MTech takes a particular pride in ensuring the relevance and regular update of testing documents.

5.

Prototype Testing

The Crucial stage of development. Changes at this stage prevent potentially Fatal changes later on.

Pre Production Stage

The prototype can be a series of images, static web pages, or the early version of the system. As the early core of an application, the prototype shows the stability and performance of the application, and thus plays an important role in the overall QA strategy. Prototype testing includes detection of design, structure or logic errors. During prototype test a lot of attention is given to usability testing.

Design 90%
Usability 55%
Functionality 100%
Logic of UI 75%

Daily Testing

Online activity reports are published for all tasks performed as well as errors found. These reports are customized and can be done either based on your templates or those of 6MTech. This allows you to be fully involved with the testing process if you so wish.

6.

Regular/Bulk testing

@ 6MTech we apply SCRUM. If you have favorite Software to communicate, then we use that.

7.

Stabilization testing

The final test stage before Beta Testing.

Steady as it goes

When all functions have been developed and the application is almost ready to be launched, a Stabilisation test is performed. The interaction between all the modules and components becomes clearer and the test is carried in a production environment. Some of the functions can be tested only at this point, for example, the work of large databases, real life payments, etc.

Stability to Updates

Testing remains an important part of product maintenance even after the product is launched. All changes to the system must be tested to ensure that the system is to provide those functions as designed without any negative impacts on other functions or systems. When the environment changes (hardware or software), the service or applications must be retested to ensure that it continues to function as intended and works well with other components and modules of the software (Regression testing to be used)

8.

Product Launch and Support

@ 6MTech we apply SCRUM. If you have your favorite Software to communicate with, then we use that.

“I would like to formally thank the team at 6MTech for all of their efforts over the years in SIP Testing. The reporting of issues and system functionality were swift and accurate. The team’s actions in determining system performance and their responsiveness toward quickly changing and short term requests were exceptional. Thank You everyone on the 6MTech team for all your hard work and a job well done!”
Victor, Movial Applications Ltd
“We are grateful for all the hard work you put into our projects and especially to your ability to adapt to new customer and project environments. Talking about agile company. Thank you all!”
Mr.Marjanen, Titania Internet Ventures Plc
“After our pilot project (4 years ago) was finished, 1 month before schedule, we moved all our ongoing project to 6MTech. Decision was simple. The level and range of skills their staff poses is mind blowing. The dedication and extra input of the team really came as a surprise. We have not met any another company who offers this high level of service and especially for this price! Now our developers fix the reported bugs in the morning and continue coding. We have experienced drop on time of production and cost + on average we have 91% decline on errors before beta tests.”
Jussi, Suomen Mediatoimisto Ltd

What Else? If we can Run it, We can Test it!

If you have a unique project, whether it is technically or otherwise different and list of our test scenarios did not match your need, let us know. We can test anything (and we have). Hence our broad skill guideline:
If we can run it, we can test it.

Provide us with:

  • Hardware needed to run your program for testing
  • Manual or Operating guide to set it up
  • Any possible abnormalities that are “Needed to Know” for testing
