What this is

Test plan which documents at a high level how a system or product will be tested in different ways during the project to ensure it meets its requirements and functions properly.


Why it's useful

To ensure that a high-quality product, system, or service is delivered to the end user/customer, different types of testing are required at different stages of the project. But how do schedules often stay on target? By having their testing time reduced, unfortunately. The early test plan helps ensure that enough time is allowed for adequate testing later in the project. The team thinks through ALL the testing that will be required, and creates an accurate schedule with good estimate backup. This planning also serves to highlight dependencies such as equipment needs and number of test personnel required.


How to use it

Create an initial overview test plan with the appropriate information for your project. The following groups should all contribute input to the initial plan and be involved in its review: Quality, Development, Marketing, Business Architects, Operations, Customer Support etc. as appropriate for your company. The test plan will then be updated, or used to guide more detailed test plans, later in the project. (For larger projects each type of testing will eventually have its own detailed test plan. For smaller projects all test information may be kept in this one document and updated and expanded as the project proceeds.)
