7      TEST DESIGN FOR UAT

Chapter 3 introduced the test development process (TDP), the process by which the tests for UAT are created. Each of the three components of the TDP, test conditions, test cases and test procedure specifications (test scripts), represents a step in a process or hierarchy that starts with the definition of the requirements and ends with UAT.

In this chapter we will explore that hierarchy, explain in more detail how test conditions, test cases and test scripts are built, and apply this directly to our UAT exercise.

Topics covered in this chapter

•  The hierarchy of test design

•  Identifying test conditions

•  Designing test cases

•  Designing test scripts

•  Data creation
