Analysing a problem - writing efficient test cases

“So I have the specifications. Now what?” – a question I have heard from test engineers so many times, asking for an advise on how to analyze and write the best test case set they can from the specification document/s or user stories they have.

The main idea is to analyze the specifications or user stories with the end in mind. It is also about consulting with the other stakeholders that have a say in our product development, mainly a non-technical information (i.e. product, market, and project).

In this keynote, Mr. Linetzki describes the motivation for a clear framework process, and the process itself, that is aimed at helping us construct an optimized set of test cases, from initially receiving specifications or user stories. Mr. Linetzki describes a case study, demonstrating an example on using the process in the Medical sector, which can easily be transferred and implemented in other domains.

Key points:

  • Analyzing requirements and specifications (or user stories) – suggested process
  • Collaborating with stakeholders – as a key factor for test design
  • Using tools in the process for optimization
