What is a Quality Plan?
At BIZSENSE Solutions we solely take responsibility of your application with creation of thoughtful optimum quality plan. It comprises two parts:
The Quality Assurance Plan : Quality Assurance is fault prevention through process, design and auditing.
The Quality Control Plan lists the internal reviews needed to meet your quality targets.
Quality Control is fault/failure detection through static and/or dynamic testing of artifacts. By using Quality Assurance and Quality Control techniques, you can create a comprehensive Quality Management Plan for your project.
When do I use a Quality Plan?
Quality Plan should be prepared as soon as goals and objectives of the project if finalized by business. Creating a Quality Plan is essential if you want to provide the customer with confidence that you will produce a solution that meets their needs. The Quality Plan states everything you’re going to do, to ensure the quality of your solution. Create a Quality Management Plan that gives your customer a high degree of confidence that you will succeed.
How do I create a Quality Plan?
The following list represents activities that Quality planning may include:
- Determining the scope and risks, and identifying the objectives of testing.
- Defining the overall approach of testing (the test strategy), including the definition of the test levels and entry and exit criteria.
- Integrating and coordinating the testing activities into the software life cycle activities: acquisition, supply, development, operation and maintenance.
- Making decisions about what to test, what roles will perform the test activities, how the test activities should be done, and how the test results will be evaluated.
- Scheduling test analysis and design activities.
- Scheduling test implementation, execution and evaluation.
- Assigning resources for the different activities defined.
- Defining the amount, level of detail, structure and templates for the test documentation.
- Selecting metrics for monitoring and controlling test preparation and execution, defect resolution and risk issues.
- Setting the level of detail for test procedures in order to provide enough information to support reproducible test preparation and execution.
Why do I need a Quality Plan?
Advantages of having a test plan are:
- It helps understand the goals and objective of the customer, stakeholder and project.
- It helps identify risks which need to be attended.
- Economical Quality :
Effort, cost and time spend reduces if defects are identified as early as possible in the life cycle. A good quality plan ensures identification of issues right from the planning stage.
- Optimal utilization and appropriate allocation of available resources.
And many more advantages.
Danger involved if not having a Quality plan:
- Lack of plan renders lack of goals and targets. This results in repair-service behavior. Without any clear idea of what the benchmarks are, we go in search of things that are broken and our goal becomes fixing them.
- With lack of knowledge of areas of importance and priority, we often don’t solve the problems that need to be solved but the ones we know how to solve.
