    What is stabilization [testing]?

    Hello folks. A fairly straightforward, unconvoluted topic I wish to raise: What is the definition of Stabilization Testing to you? In your experience.
    You see, I'm writing a test strategy right now and I am required to define Stabilization Testing, which my employer has never done before. I'm just looking for feedback to develope a clear definition for myself! I appreciate [nearly] all [constructive] input!

    Re: What is stabilization [testing]?

    Is that another term for stability testing, or are you talking about something different?

    To: Scott Barber
    Well, if you consider only 'application stability' when the Application Under Test (AUT) is first installed in given environment, then that would entail a specific set of tests that come to mind (Acceptance/Validity testing? Smoke testing?) However, what compounds the confusion in my case is that 'Stabilization Test' used to be called 'Integration Test' here. Now, I had thought that 'Integration Test' implied here that individual components were tested for their compatibility when linked together with other coomponents that make up the entire AUT!
    As it turns out, this may be the case: the so-called 'Stabilization testing' tests the combined components (ideally with live connections)for stability in the test environment using a subset of the functionality test scripts, then after, utilizing test scripts geared more for integration (connectivity and backend testing?) which I have never done.
    So what's your definition of stabilization testing?
