Top 5 Testing Strategies Your Start-Up Needs To Have In Place

A Start-up idea is like a small plan. It has a great chance of becoming a large tree but requires special conditions and a good environment. Once you’ve done with early founder challenges like documentation, legal requirements, product market fit, etc. The stage of development is ahead of you. Starting software development is always a new part of the challenge. One of them is the testing strategy of your Startup.
Launching a product full of bugs takes additional time in product marketing and costs while pushing back the deadline to fix these defects. It is time and resources that an upcoming start-startup cannot afford.

Here are the top 5 software testing strategies that you can adopt to ensure the perfect product:

1. Align your QA strategy to your business Start Up goals:

A product is launched in the market with specific key achievements in mind. These goals must be communicated throughout the company, including the QA and development teams. This way, developers will have a clear idea of the product you have in mind.

The QA team will strategize based on your needs and test to perfect the aspects critical to your goals. It prevents a lot of post-launch debugging or troubleshooting.

It also makes it easier to strategize for the QA team, who can create a detailed plan focused on your goals, break down tasks as needed, and work with the development team for QA testing and debugging before launch.

2. Create a detailed plan for testing / QA processes:
Documentation is key to maintaining quality consistency. This plan can be divided into four parts:
1. Quality management plan
2. Testing strategy
3. Test Plan
4. Test Case
Each of these documents should contain the focus of the process and the critical elements involved—a standard policy to follow during the process with individuals interested in the trial.

3. A suitable work environment for the team
Here are some steps rules you can take to ensure a healthy team environment:
• Clear demarcation of tasks
• Involvement of the QA team in the development
• increase their knowledge base in terms of the business aspect of production
• Open communication

4. Testing for User Acceptance
A good product is developed with the end user in mind. A QA team can understand the defined user personas for development and test based on these user types.
Here’s how you can go about it:
• Define a method for your UAT process
• Conduct the test in an organized way
• Document the process

5. Measuring Code Quality
Here are some metrics that you can use to measure code quality:
Reliability: it defines how smoothly your code can run without fail.
Performance Efficiency: Performance efficiency can be defined by the quick response of an application to any given functionality.
Security: Security can be measured by the application’s ability to detect any such problems and the time required to fix these errors.
Maintainability: it depends on the complexity of the code. Maintainability can be measured based on how many lines of code there are and how easy or difficult it is to find and modify a given string.
Rate of Delivery: it is based on how quickly the software is updated and delivered to end users.
Here are some testing strategies your start-startup needs to have to ensure a great quality product that best uses the given resources.
