360logica guarantees quality software product through its functional testing services irrespective of the present and future risks involved. Our proficiency lies in usability testing and providing quality assurance. This ensures that the client application is tested according to the objectives and set parameters. Our experts are adept in performing error-free integration, effective compatibility testing, and enhanced reliability of applications that are cost-effective in the least possible time.
The Need for Functional Testing
Functional testing caters the need to determine application compliance with the stated requirements. It is a kind of graphical user interface (GUI) test executed on a complete, integrated system. Functional testing includes effective examination and validation of all functions, features, and competence of a software product. Some of the tests play a vital role in minimizing undetected defects; they include requirement-based, functional, usability, and compatibility testing.
Our Approach Assures Highest Quality Functional Testing
With expert and qualified testers on board, 360logica has an exemplary track record in providing functional testing to clients in retail, IT, telecom, e-commerce, e-learning, manufacturing, finance, healthcare, travel, technology, and other sectors. We formulate a robust approach and personalized test plans to ensure all prerequisites are met according to the application as expected. We are adept in using a variety of licensed and open source tools, which help reduce the cost of testing. Moreover, test automation techniques allow us to create interfaces for low-cost regression testing before and after deployment of software products. Our expertise in using the personalized selenium automation framework guarantees high-quality open-source testing of applications and improved integration and compatibility testing. The website testing phase includes running the application on different browsers and propositions to improve its compatibility and ensuring robust functional features.
The essence and depth of our functional testing services are mentioned below.
Requirements identification of the software project
Functional specifications set by project objectives and creating input data
Determining output according to the requirements
Executing test cases
Analyzing and assessing of actual findings against expected outputs
Test Cycle for Requirement-Based Functional Testing
The well-defined and effective test cycle process followed by 360logica allows the functional testing team to implement processes and application to any given testing situation depending on available resources. Some of the key components of processes and deliverables that are a part of our requirement based functional testing approach are discussed below.
Tests are planned comprehensively for various kinds of testing, including functional testing and compatibility testing. Test leads consider the customer feedback and team assistance while defining deliverables, scope of the test, and preparing the test schedule. However, the test plan can be modified depending upon the kind of issues coming up during the testing cycle.
Partitioning or Functional Decomposition
We check the effectiveness of each area thoroughly for executing the allotted task by breaking a system into multiple functional components. Once independent functional testing has been carried out, the deliverables are reviewed by the test team for integration. In case the functional partitions are not properly defined, they are created and maintained properly by the test team.
Defining and verifying requirements can be made effective during testing, especially while switching from the conceptual stage to functional code directly. 360logica has extensive expertise in helping the software development team in setting requirements as well as creating testable requirements in case they are not delivered. These are verified both at an individual and integrated level through compatibility testing processes.
Test Case Design
Our focus lies in designing personalized test cases that allow us to check the functional behavior according to the stated requirements and end-user experience. These customized test cases are included under the apt functional partitions and mapped based on the requirements to be tested.
We ensure a complete error-free and cost-effective solution by developing a traceability matrix. Test design activity is said to be completed after mapping all the requirement aspects thoroughly. We at 36logica ensure proper tracing of test cases to a requirement for which these are exclusively created. This gives a clearer picture of the application.
Test Case Execution
Test cases are executed and the results are recorded after the software testing process. Depending upon the state of software product and the test plan, we define the execution of each test plan. In case any requirement doesn’t comply with the existing state of the application, we delay it until the testing is done according to the given requirements.
Testing team is responsible for identifying, documenting, and managing the defects. We determine the reason for the same and help the development team with appropriate measures.
The details obtained during compatibility testing, usability testing, website testing, test automation development, and other areas of functional testing, are prepared and shared by the test team. This briefs the developers and stakeholders about the exact behavior showed by the requirements that were successfully tested and those that required changes.
