Test analysis is where the majority of work is performed.  Testing Analysts will perform the functions of analysis and design of test conditions and test cases that will be executed in later test phases.  By using the proven methodology of starting the testing as early as the requirements will enable defects to be resolved before they become costly to fix.  Knowledge gained in these earlier stages will enable any subsequent stages of testing to be performed with little or no extra training.

Key Benefits

  • Reduced cost by identification and correction of defects early in the project lifecycle.
  • Increase in the quality of the product based on the formal methodology being applied.
  • Reduced risk as a mitigation strategy is in place.
  • Thorough testing is performed based on knowledge of business requirements through early reviews and walkthroughs.


By basing the testing analysis on the agreed test strategies for the project we apply the following capabilities based on the levels of testing. 
Requirements verification
The success of the project is based on ensuring the requirements have been clearly stated and understood by all parties.  Many potential defects can be resolved at this early stage by performing this step.
Design verification
Once the design has been compiled, it needs to be verified both functionally and technically to ensure that it meets the approved requirements.  
Test case design
Whilst the development work is being performed the test analysts can now proceed to design test cases that test the system meets the approved requirements.  The test based risk mitigation strategy developed earlier is used as we know that we won't have unlimited time to perform 100% test effort.
