Diff between TEST STRATEGY & TEST PLAN
Can anyone pl. help me out for below question..?
1. What is the Diff between TEST STRATEGY & TEST PLAN.?
A document describing the scope, approach, resources, and schedule of intended testing activities. It identifies test items, the features to be tested, the testing tasks, who will do each task, and any risks requiring contingency planning. [IEEE]
A detail of how the test will proceed, who will do the testing, what will be tested, in how much time the test will take place, and to what quality level the test will be performed. [IEEE]
A document prescribing the approach to be taken for intended testing activities. [B. Hetzel]
A high-level description of the test levels to be performed and the testing within those levels for an organization or programme (one or more projects). [ISTQB]
from: All Things Quality: Testing Terms Glossary
TEST STRATEGY & TEST PLAN in few places consider same , but most places differes
Test Policy > Test Stretergy > Test Plan > Test Specification > Test Summary and Completion report is a order of test documentation.
Strategy speak about methodology , Objectives and way to go ahead
Plan jot downs the finer detail, schedule, risk and exit and entry criteria.
Guideline BS7925-2 can be a good starting point
Test Plan describes the approach, features to be tested, testers assigned, and whatever you plan for your project.
Test strategy is the freezed part of BRS
thanks for your answer..
Can u p. let me know what are the things that come in Entry and Exit Criteria for TEST STRATEGY..?
Entry and exit criteria come in Test Plan not in Test strategy....
Entry criteria: All test case complete and review done.
Environment ready .
Smoke test done.
Exit Criteria :
All test case executed.
Test result verified.
All bug resolved.
Sanity test done
Sujay Kumar nice said of entry and exit criteria .
Entry and Exit criteria will depend on the test phase (unit, integration, UAT, regression, etc), project / testing methodology, application / system under test, risk appetite of the business, etc.
The Entry criteria for unit testing a startup's prototype website under Agile will be different to the Entry criteria for UATing a FTSE100 financial consolidation system under Waterfall / V-model.
The poster above has provided some examples of Entry / Exit criteria, but they are not a definitive list and do not necessarily apply to all projects / developments. They also can and do often appear in the Test Strategy so that they are defined early in the project lifecycle so everyone is aware of what they are early on.

Thanks for the lucid and perfect answer sir.
