Functional Tester

Brief introduction to Functional testing

Functional testing is a form of software testing that testing of all features and functions of a system to ensure requirements and specifications are met.

Functionality testing of software is testing conducted on a complete, integrated system to evaluate the system's compliance with its specified requirements. Functionality testing falls within the scope of black box testing, and as such, should require no knowledge of the inner design of the code or logic.

Functional testing covers the following aspects:

  • GUI behavior (changes in properties of objects on the screen while its operation).
  • Error handling (to prevent wrong operations).
  • Input (to prevent incorrect input).
  • Manipulations (to ensure correct output).
  • Backend (valid impact of operations on database).

Functional testing also includes testing to figure out the extra functionalities in the software that are not required according to the software requirement specification.

Our experience

Via accomplishing several Functional testing projects, our Functional testers have mastered each part of Functional testing procedure. Briefly described as follows:

  • Get familiar with SRS and test requirement Nova's Functional testers not only can get familiar with your software requirement specification but also can test whether all items of your requirement document are incorrect. If there are some better solutions, we will provide for you.
  • Design testing plan and test cases According to SRS and other documents, such as project plan, we will design test plan and test cases. Of course, both of them should be reviewed by leaders and the client.
  • Configure test environment Prepare the test environment, tools, and resources necessary to execute each strategy as features and components become available for test. Ensure that the test environment is instrumented for resource monitoring as necessary.
  • Execute tests and report bugs Execute tests according to test cases; on the other hand, we will adopt some other testing methodologies to ensure the quality of tested software, such as exploratory testing. After testing, we will report all bugs with easy understanding language in time.
  • Final reporting and analysis At last, defects analysis and recommendations regarding improvement of the tested software and the software development process in whole.
