  • STLC (Software Test Life Cycle)

    Software Testing Life Cycle or STLC is a comprehensive group of testing related steps followed to deliver quality product. Testing has become an important phenomenon during and after development of any software. The various steps in the testing process are:

    • Test planning

    This is the initial and the key step of STLC (Software Test Life Cycle). This step determines the overall flow of testing process starting from the following:

    • Requirement gathering, its analysis and specifications
    • Forming the test plan and test scenario
    • Preparing test cases and its approval
    • Tools selection and confirmation

    We carry out our test planning based on IEEE Standard for Software Test Documentation and other industry specifications.

    • Testing environment and harness preparation

    The stage is defined by test automation framework design, development, and test script creation. SCMS a software development company has state-of-the-art testing equipment, system software, and web middleware. This ensures creation of the proper testing environment. It also helps in essentially decreasing the time for testing configuration deployment.

    • Test execution

    The manual and automated software testing, as specified in the test plan is applied in a dynamic state of the code. The approaches and methods are utilized to validate the executable code developed meeting the specifications stated at the start of a software project.

    For each of these types of testing, we have established approaches, proven testing tools, and adjusted reporting document templates. Testing techniques applied:

    • Black Box / White Box testing
    • Ad Hoc / Exploratory testing
    • Scripted testing
    • Test Reporting

    We use the industry-recognized bug tracking tools like Bug tracking, Jira, BugZilla. The test reports are well documented and the spotted bugs are reported to the developer after the testing is completed.

    • Final report and analysis

    This is the final step of test cycle. It involves the final report preparation and project metrics generation. The defects spotted are analyzed and recommendations are made for improvements.
