Functional Testing Encompasses the Complete Functionality of an Application
It is the most widely used testing type for determining the quality of an application. As there are various aspects in testing functionality of an application, the process of functional testing performed at Powersoft19 SQA includes multiple testing types depending upon the nature of the application. The process of functional testing starts with requirements analysis. We devise the test plan based on the requirements analysis. The test plan can include either or both manual and automated testing according to the nature of the application. For stable applications with a moderate level of complexity and a high level of repetitive test requirements, we devise automated testing scripts. The key during this phase is that the functional requirements of the product are iterated and understood by all stakeholders.
In the second phase, we identify the test scenarios and then write the test cases. The next phase is the regression testing to ensure the quality of application after each fixing. We document all reports generated during various stages of functional testing through the ‘defect life cycle’ management process. This data enables a deep insight into the reasons of the bugs and improve the quality of application for future development cycles. Embedded and web application’s functional testing services are two focus areas of our functional testing services.
- Compatibility of different units of application
- Evaluation of complete system’s performance under practical environment
- Assurance of the fitness of application for purpose
