Hello dear readers. Thanks for coming back to my blog to learn about the Static Testing Technique.
The first technique of the Static Testing is Informal Review. This type of technique consist on the presentation given by the creator of documents such as software requirements, business requirement document, technical design document, test cases document, function requirement documents etc to the audience. The audience could be senior management, development team, business clients, internal audit team, etc. During these reviews and after, the audience can give their opinion and can share their experience in order to outline the review defects. This static testing type is very useful because it helps in the identification of the defect very early.
The second technique is called Walkthrough. This type of technique is done with the expert or a senior member. For example, Software Requirements Specification Document will be reviewed with the Business lead who have provided the requirements, test cases document will be reviewed by the testing team who is going to execute those test, Functional Requirements Document will be reviewed with the technical team who is going to write the solution etc. This walkthrough is useful because: the lead is aware of the quality of the documents and the target team comes to know about what exactly is going on.
Peer review it’s the review when the peer ensures maker and checker. To outline the common mistake such as workflow mistake, spelling mistake etc, a team of two or more is needed to review the work. The colleague is included as the peer who tests the work at the document level.
Last technique is Inspection. This technique validated the documentation work by the dedicated governance team. For example: the Business Requirement Document, change ticket, technical Design Document, etc are reviewed by compliance, tollgate team and change the governance respectively. If it found inappropriate, inspection can reject the execution of the document.
Having to know the techniques is important as are part of the testing process.
