TEST INCIDENT REPORT
Test processes determine whether the development products of a given activity conform to the requirements of that activity and whether the system and/or software satisfies its intended use and user needs. The scope of testing encompasses software-based systems, computer software, hardware, and their interfaces.
829-2008 – IEEE Standard for Software and System Test Documentation, is an IEEE standard that specifies the form of a set of documents for use in eight defined stages of software testing, each stage potentially producing its own separate type of document.
Software quality assurance test documentation includes:
Test Incident Report
The Test Incident Report documents all issues (bugs) found during different test phases. It’s the detail of the actual versus expected results of a test, when a test has failed, and anything indicating why the test failed.
- It’s uniquely numbered and tracked to resolution.
- Defect tracking tools are preferred.
