5 Aspects of Software Testing
A growing number of people in software business agree that testing is important, but still, there are difficulties with understanding the process of testing and its nature.
To make everything clear, let’s take a look at the 5 main aspects of the software testing process. It will also give you an idea about the kind of work a software testing company is doing.
5 aspects of testing are:
Check and verify
First of all, testing is about demonstrating in a constructive way that something works, if not fully, then at least to some extent. Secondly, every element should be checked and every bug should be verified in order to assure high-quality testing.
Detect and search
In testing, it is necessary to detect bugs as soon as possible and then continue to search for the rest of them in order to avoid unforeseen behavior of the system.
Reduce risks and explore
Any testing works with risks in the system under test. Of course, the purpose of testing is to reduce these risks as much as possible. Also, QA engineers investigate and explore in order to look deep inside the system while conducting software testing.
Measure and predict
While testing, it is necessary to always measure all quality attributes like availability, reliability, performance, etc. Relying on the obtained results, it is possible to predict the behavior of the system in the future and the way further tests should be conducted to bring the best results.
Prevent and develop
Prevention of bugs is one of the most important tasks for test engineers. But further development should not be forgotten either as without it your software will not start working correctly.
Software testing is a multilayered process that has several crucial aspects. Efficient professional testing can only be achieved by properly executing all of these aspects. But when it is done, the positive effect of testing for software functionality cannot be underestimated. Proper testing is indispensable for any software to work smoothly, quickly, and to the software users’ and owners’ utmost satisfaction.
