In the process of creation of a successful software product, there is an inevitable problem of finding a balance between the quality and the release date of the software product. The testing allows of obtaining a product that satisfies all requirements. But the covering of each product risk with various test cases and compiling them take too long. The correctly prepared testing process should provide a required quality level without exceeding project time and budget . If the time for testing was estimated wrongly, it can lead you either to the late product delivery, or to the decrease of its quality and competitiveness . The estimation of time resources in software testing is a rather complicated and volumetric process but its significance for the creation of the successful project shouldn’t be underestimated.
This article contains recommendations that can help you to obtain more realistic and functional time estimates for the testing of a new project.
