The software testing life cycle – a very short introduction

Independent from any specific software development methodology, the software testing life cycle can generally be divided into a number of distinct phases: analysis and planning, developing and documenting tests, test execution, evaluating test runs and preparing the next cycle.

In the traditional “waterfall” model you would go through this cycle once, with the agile software development approach you would have a number of short test iterations during product development.

No matter which approach you take, you will need to capture your test cases, organize them, and track the results so that you know if you have reached your quality standards (or if you have fallen behind).

We designed TestRail specifically to guide you through the complete software testing life cycle. From documenting tests, managing test suites and test runs, capturing results, all the way to generating powerful reports. See for yourself and try it for free.
