It is a process to determine if a product or service follows a certain set of requirements. It is a quality management procedure that checks how much quality requirements of the product or service is fulfilled.
In the similar way, Software Quality Assurance improves the work to check efficiency, identify flaws and find any methods or approaches to complete the process, to enable companies to provide better customer satisfaction and boost profit in the way.
A Quality Assurance Engineer is the person who carries out all these tasks to provide the better final product.
Now let us discuss the ways in which a QA Engineer contributes in the process of software development.
1. Details gathering – Determining different approaches to Quality Assurance
This is the first step of involvement ofa QA. In this step a QA gathers all the knowledge about the project and also talks to the clients about the technology and features requirements of the project. After listening to all the requirements from the client, QA decides on the following three factors
– Analyze the requirements of the project.
–Finding different approaches to solve the requirements.
–Planning for different testing phases
2. Validation –
This step provides the information if the product will be valuable for the companies once it reaches the customer. For that, the QA engineer meets both client and development teams and discusses and gathers feedback regarding the project’s design, features and usability.
3. Planning different tests
This step involves a QA engineer to create some scenarios in which the product or service will behave. Basically, this step is carried out from the customer’s point of view. In this way, a QA will determine unexpected obstacles and find methods to improve them.
4. Manual testing of developed features
In this step, a QA will test different features of the product or service to ensure maximum quality. Following are some examples of tests carried out by a QA engineer
–System integration tests
5. Test automation
A manual test involves a human to sit before the computer and carry out the required tests. But automation testing involves automated tests which save a lot of time. After this test a QA will send the report to the development teams for further improvement of the product or service.
Hiring a highly-qualified and experienced QA engineer will benefit in many ways. They will help you save a lot of time and money, their reports will improve the quality of the products/services and also increase company reputation by delivering a customer-friendly product.
