Yesterday I visited this board for the first time, and found oodles of helpful information. However, I ran across something that stuck in my head, but I did not copy it or write it down. [img]images/icons/frown.gif[/img]
It was an acronym for the word SMART, and had something to do with QA Methodologies, and I believe M was for Measurable. Does this ring a bell for anyone?
I used that acronym when describing requirements.
Relavant (or sometimes, Reasonable)

An acronym I have used for testing and automation is: SEARCH
Setup - setup the test
Execute - execute the test
Analyze - analyze the results (actual vs. expected)
Report - report the findings of the test
Cleanup - clean up / reset the system and get ready for next test
Halt (or Have a beer!) - test is done, go relax
Of course we could just use the military acronyms like: FUBAR and SNAFU. Used to define the situation at hand, and pretty much applies to testing software. That app. is FUBAR because of the SNAFU.
PDOOMA (Pronounced P-Dooma)
I know a project manager who uses DAQ in his issues register, very few people ask what it means .... people seem to get embarised asking what an Acronym stands for.
