What this is

Template for a User Acceptance Test Plan to be used for final approval of the system's state by customers before deploying an application to users. Such a plan typically describes the purpose and scope of a particular set of testing; the team to perform the testing, and their responsibilities; and specific test scenarios, environment, and conditions.


Why it's useful

User Acceptance Testing is a key feature of preparing for implementation; it provides a formal means for ensuring that a new system actually meets the necessary user requirements, from the user or customer's perspective. UAT is intended to test the system in as close to a full normal day-to-day operational environment as possible, before deploying the system for general use. The testing can be broken down into tests of specific modules of the system functionality and its support documentation. It should take into account both functionality and usability.


How to use it

The tests, and the procedure by which testing is performed and results reviewed and addressed, must ensure that the system or application is compliant with business rules, meets the users' expectations, and performs as expected in the actual business environment. The UAT should therefore check different aspects of the system such as:

  • Sufficient degree of detail, for instance, on Help screens
  • Complete screens - all necessary information to perform a business process or user transaction is present
  • Correct content from the user's point of view - quality and accuracy of data
  • Usable results (screens returned after an operation, reports generated, etc., including layout and contents)
  • System performs the business functions as required
  • Accuracy and usefulness and usability of user documentation and procedures
  • Release, installation, and configuration management procedures
