A sound testing strategy is one of the best ways to prevent problems in production. A test script is the way to capture this information.
The following are key points to include in your test scripts:
- Document the SAP QA build version the test script was run against
- Create a step for EACH operation to perform
- Put specifically what should be input and what should be returned
- Include a screen shot of the results of each step
- List the tester and have them sign-off on the results
- Have somebody else review the results and sign-off
- Keep versions of the test scripts and document what has changed
Below is a screen shot of a test script and a MSFT Word version is attached (remove the .txt extention).
If you want to make sure you have a good test script, get a non project member to try it. It should be that easy and clear to run.
