Transitioning from AdHoc to Structured QA

Agile or Not, most organizations are finding that they need to treat quality more seriously to consistently improve. For software quality to consistently improve, a framework is needed to provide the building blocks of quality software that delivers improvement with each iteration. At XBOSoft, we’ve found the key elements of a QA framework to be the following seven areas:

  1. Requirements
  2. Test Cases
  3. Test Management
  4. Results reporting and metrics
  5. Traceability from requirements to features, to test criteria, test cases, and defects
  6. Tools to support the process
  7. Test Automation
