Common Problems with Testing

By Rajesh on 4/3/2014

Software testing need huge investment though clients are not satisfied with their software developed by different software developer; one of the key reasons behind this is the insufficient testing.  So the two main type of testing problems are as follows:

  1.  General Testing problems: This depends on the software testing and not applies for specific testing types.
  2. Test type- specific problems: This problem is related to a specific type of testing such as unit testing, system testing, and integration testing.

Here I am going to discuss the General testing problems which can be broadly divided into 9 categories:

Test planning and scheduling problems arises because of poor and incomplete documentation where there is no separate plan for a testing. The scheduling of testing is not sufficient for the amount of testing that should be performed. Project testing, however done but latter client find out many defects in the software.

Stakeholder involvement and commitment problems arises due to the stakeholder involvement and wrong commitment problems. They always try to find the defect instead of whether it is running according to the documentation prepared.

Management-related testing problems imply inadequate management for a particular project so management fails to supply adequate supply of resources or inappropriate testing environment.

Test organizational and professionalism problems indicate the lack of testing expertise, lack of independence and unclear testing responsibilities. Many company hired software professional in cheap rate which can’t provide the smart output at the end of completion of project.

Test process problems arise when the testing and engineering processes are poorly integrated. Some time company’s approach of testing for different project becomes same and it never try to find out specific need test a project. Inadequate test evaluations and inadequate test evaluations also cause of testing errors.

Test tools and environments problems arise due to insufficient number of test environments. Some of the test environments may also have poor quality or has many defects in it.

 Test communication problems deals with improper or inadequate test documentation. Some time test documents are not updated and so the communication between software developer and tester.

The confused test team also considered the responsible for the failure of software testing. The deadline approaches the team member feel that they will not able to complete testing before deadline of the project then project manager may hand over to other team as well or hire new tester. The project is on delivery schedule so available engineers and technical leadership working day and night make the test team confused, hence some defect remains in the project.
