DIFFERENT ROLES IN A SOFTWARE TESTING TEAM

SOFTWARE TESTING

There are different roles in a software testing team. The software testing is performed at every level of software development with specific objective  and by IT professionals. This ensures early defect detection and fixing. There are two ways in which the software testing team performs the testing- manual testing and automation testing.

 

SOFTWARE TESTING TEAM:

The software testing team comprises of test manager, test leader and tester.

Test manager:

The role of test manager is optional. The test manager is hired when there are many testing groups. The number of testers and testing groups depends on the software testing workload. The test manager has below major roles:

  • prepares test strategy
  • prepare the test budget
  • define test levels and test cycles
  • develop strategy for estimating test effort
  • develop strategy for test documentation, metrics and reporting
  • guides and controls the testing teams
  • co ordinates with the test leaders and project manger
  • gathers the updates on testing progress
  • identify the risk and priorities for testing
  • design the testing approach, procedures  and techniques
  • identify, evaluate and choose the testing tools
  • set the strategy on the automation testing
  • co ordinate with other teams for software releases

Test leader:

Each test group is led by a test leader. The test leader performs the roles of test manager in absence of test manager. In addition to that, test leader roles and responsibilities are listed below:

  • prepare the test plan at each test level based on test strategy
  • define the objectives, test items, approaches, risk, contingencies in testing process
  • assign roles and provide schedule to testers
  • identify the test specifications test activities for testers
  • gather metrics and track the testing progress
  • define entry and exit criteria
  • define test environment and monitor the set up process
  • design test documents templates
  • set up the configuration management
  • lead and conduct the meetings
  • review the test documents
  • co ordinate in the testing group
  • monitor the testing and co ordinate the software release
  • resolve the issues in the test groups
  • guide the testers
  • prepare the test summary report
  • co ordinate for automation testing

Testers:

The testers group can comprise of entry level testers, senior testers, performance testers, automation testers and testers performing specific tests. The roles and responsibilities of a typical tester are listed below:

  • gather the test requirements
  • review the project documents to understand the requirements and identify the errors
  • assist the test lead to prepare the test plan
  • create the test documents like traceability matrix, test data and test cases
  • set up and verify the test environment
  • test the software at different levels and record the results
  • identify, report and track the defects
  • co ordinate with developers to ensure the defect fixing process
  • automate the tests
  • provide test support
  • develop the test specifications, conduct the test and record the results for the different items of the software
  • participate in the review meetings
  • assist the users in UAT
  • provide the test updates to test lead
  • provide the learning experience during the project and document it

A proactive behaviour is expected from testing team. The testers in the team should share the common objective of establishing the confidence in the quality of the software. The testing activities are to be conducted in the environment of trust. The policies and standards are to be followed to conduct the testing activities for the success of the project.

  1. The development of a quality software is a shared interest and work among the client and the members of the development team. Testers hold a strong role in the development of a life cycle of a software. The tester role is to identity the defects in the software and to verify compliance of software with the client requirements. Below are the main steps testers carry out in order to contribute to a bug free software development:
    – Test Requirements Gathering
    – Test Plan & Analysis
    – Test Design
    – Test Implementation & Execution
    – Defect Reporting & Tracking
    – Test Closure
    The testers perform above test steps on a ‘developing software’ under the guidance and supervision of the test lead, and the frequent meetings with the test lead, fellow testers and often times with the developers as well.

  2. As stated above, the roles and responsibilities of a typical tester in order to provide a defect free software are below:
    – Gather the test requirements
    – Review the project documents to understand the requirements and identify errors.
    – Create the test documents like RTM, Test data and Test Case
    – Assist/discuss with the Test Lead in preparing of Test Plans and Test Steps
    – Set up and verify the test environment
    – Test the software and record the results
    – Identify, track and report the defects
    – Co-ordinate with developers on defect fixing
    – Automate the test
    – Develop the test specifications
    – Participate in the review meeting- Assist the users in UAT
    – Document the project experience.

  3. Tester- tester group inclde entry level tester, senior tester,automation tester, and tester performing specific tests.
    Roles and responsibilities of testers
    *gathering test requirements
    *review the project document to understand the requirements and find out the errors
    *test the software at different levels and record results
    *co ordinate with developers about defeat fixing process
    *participate in review meetings
    *help the user in UAT
    * provide the learning experience during the project and documents it
    So the tester has to find out the problem in particular software requirements

  4. Test Manger – roles of an test manager in tester group is optional it is required only when many groups are involved. he/she will prepare strategy, test budget, define testing levels & cycles, estimating testing effort, test documentation,metrics & reporting guides and controls. also co ordinate with test leaders and project manager to gather update identify risk and testing.

  5. Testers
    The testers group can comprise of entry level testers, senior testers, performance testers, automation testers and testers performing specific tests. They gather
    gather the test requirements from the BA,review the project documents to understand the requirements and identify the errors. They also assist the test lead to prepare the test plan, create the test documents like trace ability matrix, test data and test cases,

  47. The role of the test leader is to lead the team as they work, even when the manager is not present. Some of their responsibilities are; being prepared to lead and conduct meetings, review the test document, resolve any issues within the test groups, guide the testers when needed, and prepare the test summary report

  48. The testers are the foundation in the testing team. Testers can be entry level testers, senior testers, performance testers, automation testers and testers performing specific tests. A tester’s role starts by gathering requirements and project documents to understand and identify any errors. The tester assists the test lead to prepare the test plan. They create main documents like RTM, test data and test cases. These form the basis of the testers’ job. They set up and verify the test environment. They test the software and identify, report and track the defects. They get back to the developers and work with them to ensure the defects are fixed. They may also use automation tools to run tests. They participate in review meetings and assist end users in User Acceptance testing. They report to the test lead.
