6 Testing, QA, QC Definitions

Group: Testing, QA, QC

Topic: Beginner's Corner

#1. Alpha Test - The preliminary testing of a new product in which research and development are still in progress. In PSDP, alpha builds are delivered during the initial coding phase in order to validate functionality.
#2. CRUD Matrix - CRUD is an acronym that stands for create, read, update, and delete. A CRUD matrix documents what objects (forms, reports, libraries, and scripts) access what data elements in a database. It can help you test your software on large projects and is critical for maintaining a large application. If you make changes in one form or script, a CRUD matrix can tell you what other forms, libraries, scripts, and reports will need to be tested.
#3. Regression Testing - Retesting previously fixed defects or rerunning test scripts that previously passed.
#4. Works As Designed (WAD) - Term used by the software designer to let a tester know that the defect they reported isn't a defect, the reported behavior is working as the designer wants it to.

Topic: Testing, QA, QC

#5. Quality Assurance - The process of comparing the features of the delivered software product with the documented requirements with the goal of verifying the product meets the original requirements.
#6. Quality Control - A process employed to ensure a certain level of quality in each deliverable such as a requirements specification, a design specification, the final delivered software, etc.
