Graphical Display of Testing Status for Complex Configurations

PNSQC 2007

Pacific Northwest Software Quality Conference 2007

Representing the status of software under test is complex and difficult. It becomes more difficult when testers are trying new ways to uncover defects; when testing priorities shift as new information is discovered about the software under test. This is sometimes compounded when there are many interacting subsystems and combinations that must be tracked. This paper describes a spreadsheet method developed to provide a single page representation of the test space for large and complex sets of product components and configurations. The spreadsheet can be used as the focal point for project testing.
