Testplan Entry and Exit criteria
I was asked the question, that what are the TestPlan 'Entry' and 'Exit' criteria..?
can u pl. help me out..
Entry - When you are ready to test ; e.g. 80% code coverage of Unit test with no high sever/priority bug will accepted in Integration test.
Exit - When you are ready to sign-off the test activity; e.g. no Critical bug and no more than 4 High bugs with 85% testcase execution.
IEEE829 will be your friend. Also BS7925-2 can be explored.
A set of decision-making guidelines used to determine whether a system under test is ready to move into, or enter, a particular phase of testing. Entry criteria tend to become more rigorous as the test phases progress. [R. Black]
A set of decision-making guidelines used to determine whether a system under test is ready to exit a particular phase of testing. When exit criteria are met, either the system under test moves on to the next test phase or the test project is considered complete. Exit criteria tend to become more rigorous as the test phases progress. [R. Black]

Test plan entry is when you are ready to test the project with the test plan.
Test plan exit ensures that the project application has been satisfactorily completed before exiting the system test stage and clarifying the application as complete.
