In Systematic Test and Evaluation Process (STEP) and CTP it is not necessary for improvements to take place in a predefined sequence, unlike TPI Next and TMMi.
STEP is a content reference model that believes that testing process starts with software product requirements gathering phase and goes on till the system retires. It lays emphasis on “testing before coding” through a test strategy based on requirements. This makes sure that the test cases are developed early which in turn confirms that the requirements are correct, before design and coding begins.
These are some of the basic assumptions of STEP model:
In the next topic, we investigate the points a Test Manager must consider before selecting a testing tool.
