1. INTRODUCTION
(NOTE 1: THE SOFTWARE TEST PLAN GUIDELINES WERE DERIVED AND
DEVELOPED FROM IEEE STANDARD FOR SOFTWARE TEST
DOCUMENTATION (829-1998)).
(Note 2: The ordering of Software Test Plan (STP) elements is not meant to imply
that the sections or subsections must be developed or presented in that order. The
order of presentation is intended for ease of use, not as a guide to preparing the
various elements of the Software Test Plan. If some or all of the content of a section
is in another document, then a reference to that material may be listed in place of
the corresponding content.)
The Introduction section of the Software Test Plan (STP) provides an overview of the project
and the product test strategy, a list of testing deliverables, the plan for development and
evolution of the STP, reference material, and agency definitions and acronyms used in the
STP.
The Software Test Plan (STP) is designed to prescribe the scope, approach, resources,
and schedule of all testing activities. The plan must identify the items to be tested, the
features to be tested, the types of testing to be performed, the personnel responsible for
testing, the resources and schedule required to complete testing, and the risks associated
with the plan.
1.1 Objectives
(Describe, at a high level, the scope, approach, resources, and schedule of the
testing activities. Provide a concise summary of the test plan objectives, the
products to be delivered, major work activities, major work products, major
milestones, required resources, and master high-level schedules, budget, and
effort requirements.)
1.2 Testing Strategy
Testing is the process of analyzing a software item to detect the differences
between existing and required conditions and to evaluate the features of the
software item. (This may appear as a specific document (such as a Test
Specification), or it may be part of the organization's standard test approach. For
each level of testing, there should be a test plan and an appropriate set of
deliverables. The test strategy should be clearly defined and the Software Test
Plan acts as the high-level test plan. Specific testing activities will have their own
test plan. Refer to section 5 of this document for a detailed list of specific test
plans.)
Specific test plan components include:
Purpose for this level of test,
Items to be tested,
Features to be tested,
