Mastering Test Design in Uncharted Waters: Practical Solutions for Test Engineers

Test engineers often encounter imperfect requirements or their absence, which poses challenges in their testing and makes it difficult to formulate appropriate test cases. In this interactive tutorial, we will delve into the realm of complex requirements and explore how to deal with them using an object-oriented approach. Through these exercises, participants will sharpen their skills in the creation tests lacking “ideal” requirements. Also, we will check why modern AI tools are not replacing humans for really complex work. Additionally, we will discuss how this approach (and its artifacts) can help with test planning and estimation, as well as reporting. We will discover how mind mapping can streamline requirements analysis and test design process, enabling participants to overcome challenges posed by complex requirements and enhance overall test effectiveness. The primary objectives of this tutorial are to equip participants with a comprehensive understanding of dealing with complex requirements by using visual tools like object-oriented mind maps and how they can improve their requirements analysis and test design practice. By the end of the workshop, participants will gain practical experience in creating tests in situations of the absence of good requirements, or lack of context and understanding of the system.
