Regression Test Flow & Stages
It is divided into 4 stages which are following:
— Regression Methodology
Organization create its own methodology regarding the regression tests to be performed, based on regulations and the company policy. This methodology will define the whole process, responsibilities, and milestones, and it shall describe how we are going to handle each type of and “When” ?
4 issues need to be covered in this methodology which includes:
– Risk Analysis
– Project influence map
-Cause and Result plan
— Regression Evaluation
Need to analyze the impact of each change (when it occurs) based on the review of the
documentation available and in accordance with the specific strategy ‘event’.
This is done in 3 stages:
1. Building the Regression Influence Map
2. Recursive Diffusion (3 cycles)
3. Filtration (after deciding about the regression threshold)
Regression tests should be performed and should be focused on several aspects:
new processes, changed processes, deleted processes, affected processes and bug fixing.
Summarizing the results and deciding about more cycles as deemed necessary
