  • Quality assurance is an integral part of software
    development cycle that detects bugs, reduces
    costs and enhances quality. The software testing
    should start early with the defined objectives.
    Let us find out why we need testing at the
    beginning of a software project.
  • According to the expert research, the
    deficiencies in software requirements and
    software design had more damaging effects as
    compared to bugs in programming itself. Here. Is
    the interesting fact why you should start testing
    early during the software development.

  • Just the presence of QA ooze quality Artists
    on work
  • Sounds familiar? These arguments are pretty
    reasonable that QA job is more than bug fixing
    and promotes the overall quality of a software
    from requirement analysis to deployment. Quality
    maintenance for the software is as important as
    oil in the machine. When implemented at the early
    stage, QA specialist plans its own strategy to
    manage the overall quality of a software product.
    Now coders and other team members will work in
    their own disciplines without focusing on the
    quality-related tasks.

  • Forming a good communication and bond among team
    member is mandatory for successful deployment of
    the software product.
  • When QA specialist hired early, he forms a good
    bond with team members and gets respect too. At
    the same time, when hired later, this becomes a
    shock for the members and they are not ready to
    share all the details at ease.
  • The best idea is to hire QA engineer early and
    let him maintain the overall quality of product
    at its level best.

Top 3 reasons why you need QA specialist at the
beginning?
  • The involvement of QA specialist at the early
    stage helps to plan testing carefully during the
    different development stages. When QA specialist
    attends all the meetings since the beginning, he
    is able to understand the project requirements
    and the customer expectations more closely. This
    is the way QA engineer is able to fix errors for
    the requirements and design stage to prevent the
    damaging effects.
  • Also, expert QA engineers are able to write
    use-cases ad the text scripts that can be used by
    the developers during software designing. It will
    reduce the overall development time and costs for
    the project.
  • When QA specialist gets involved from the
    earliest stage, he becomes the main source of
    information for project team members to
    significantly improve the development process.

Quality maintenance is an art What happens
when art, coding, and designing come together?
  • At a practical level, QA makes the biggest impact
    not just by finding errors but maintains overall
    quality throughout the development cycles. When
    QA hired early, it reduces the testing footprints
    required.
  • Testing is an art and the job of QA is not just
    to check the coders and designers work but the
    continuous integration of ideas that need to be
    implanted earliest.
  • Next time when artists, coders, and the designers
    come together at an early stage of software
    development, how interesting this would be to
    allow creative's to explore their crafts and
    deliberate exclude any discipline.

Top 3 reasons why testing should start early?
  • According to IBM, the costs to fix bugs is
    five times extra when covered later in design
    phase while costs can be reduced significantly if
    testing is implemented early. Also, costs
    increase up to 100 times if testing is
    implemented at maintenance stage.

  • Errors documented in software requirements and
    designing at the early stage has a wonderful
    impact on future development cycles.
  • Costs to fix errors increases throughout the
    development cycles and it gets cheaper when fixed
    early.
  • To make the testing more effective, this is
    important to write use-cases and the scripts
    early.

The ability to detect and prevent errors at
development phase is result of well-tailored
business model and the continuous efforts
  • Here, we are discussing a well-defined
    quality procedure that is used by top software
    companies to deliver success at a glance.
  • You should involve QA at the very beginning
    stage of software development process.
  • This is necessary to define the objective of
    testing activities and how it can be helpful for
    your project in a precise manner.
  • The next comes designing of the test scenarios
    for complete test coverage.
  • Once test scenarios are designed properly, here
    comes the time to document them, execute them and
    analysing the final outcomes.

Conti
  • Different type of testing like unit testing,
    integration testing, regression testing etc.
    should be performed throughout the development
    life cycles.
  • Plan to automate the test scripts whenever you
    feel necessary.
  • At the end, generate the reports and compare
    different test results with the exit criteria.

Final Words
  • This is clear from the discussion that
    maintaining the quality of a software project is
    not an individual effort but the hard work of the
    complete team.
  • The software development team is striving to
    improve the development process by identifying
    the errors at the early stage, reduce the
    resolution time and minimize the overall costs of
    a project.
