User Acceptance Testing (UAT)

User Acceptance Testing is a formal test that addresses the needs, demands, and business processes of the user. It is conducted in order to identify the system’s conformance to the acceptance criteria, and to provide the customer or other authorized party with an opportunity to accept or decline the system.

Problems it will solve

  • Minimize the risks related to the incompatibility of the implemented system functionality with the initial business requirements or to the presence of defects in the operation of the new software functionality by promptly discovering these defects during the user acceptance testing
  • Minimizing the duration and costs of the testing

Deliverables

  1. The final report includes the following:
    • Information about how the functionality of the developed software corresponds to the requirements that were specified in the technical documentation
    • Information about the number of defects in the implemented functionality and their severity towards the operation’s capacity of the system
    • A list of bugs and defects with a description of the problem and a method for its reproduction
  2. Testing methodology (MS Word)
  3. Testing requirements (MS Word or MS Excel or format of specialized tool)
  4. Testing scenarios (MS Word or MS Excel or format of specialized tool)
  5. Test data set (MS Word or MS Excel or format of specialized tool)
