Recording Test Results – Another approach…

A wise man once said: “It is in human nature to think wisely and act silly.” And that is precisely the reason why people constantly look for guidance. For example by thinking up processes. But how do you ensure that processes are complied with? And perhaps even more interesting, can we learn from other processes and use them? A smart project manager knows how!

Smart approach?

A successful test cycle stands or falls with a good execution and recording of test results. This means that there must be a certain degree of maturity within the test cycle. The more mature the test cycle, the more valuable the outcomes will be. And this is exactly where the process description and compliance come into play and things often go wrong. The question now is: how do you approach this smartly? In our oppinion, these are the two most important answers:

  • Use of smart tooling.
  • Copy /Paste!

Copy /Paste…

It is clear that we are a fan of good tooling. But we are even more fan of smart tooling. Especially tooling that helps to describe, execute, comply with and simply helps to record test results. Even more when users are obligated to use this tool. So, what do we mean by copy /paste? As indicated in the beginning of this blog, it can be very valuable to look at and learn from other processes. Or to copy them. Why reinvent the wheel if you can already use the wheel?

An example

The process of software testing is not a stand-alone process. It is applicable to many test projects. Like for instance the testing of – charging poles – for electric cars. Something that the project management of ElaadNL found out after a trial period with TestersuiteInstead of testing software, ElaadNL uses Testersuite for the Smart Charging test project and more.

“Knowledge and innovation center ElaadNL researches and tests the possibilities for Smart Charging: charging electric vehicles in a reliable, affordable and sustainable way.”

Recording test results

Setting up, executing, observing and recording test results as a process is therefore very well applicable to various test processes. At Testersuite we are therefore eager to see which testing process Testersuite can be used for. Do you have any ideas about this or would you like to try out a project with us? We’d love to hear from you!
