How to Make Adhoc Testing More Effective
Adhoc testing is done when the testers do not have enough time at hand to do a detailed testing with proper test plans and test cases. Sometimes Adhoc testing is carried out at the end of the project after the execution of all the test cases. So in that sense Adhoc testing is the kind of testing which acts as a complement to other types of testing.
The success of Adhoc testing depends upon the capability of the tester who carries out the test. The tester has to find bugs without any proper planning and documentation solely based on just his intuition.
An important advantage of Adhoc testing is that it helps to save a lot of precious time. Sometimes it’s after spending valuable time on preparing and explaining tests that the program’s design is changed. With Adhoc testing precious time is not wasted on planning and documents.
