Quality Management Software platform is a user-friendly tool designed for construction companies and inspectors in order to collect and analyze data on the works carried out on the construction sites.
We joined the project when the software was rather unstable, had an inefficient development workflow, and didn't undergo competent testing procedures to ensure its quality.
Each team member worked independently, and there were often misunderstandings. The user stories usually didn't contain descriptions of the platform's behavior within the given scenario, which led to a lack of understanding of system operation.
There were no automated tests, and the regression testing ran pretty slow. Performance testing wasn't conducted as well.
The main goal was to build a team, optimize testing and development processes, and integrate automated tests. Besides, we had to provide the platform with an ability to support mobile devices that required testing on multiple devices.
We became the center of cooperation. Frequent and effective communication with developers and all team members, as well as weekly retrospective meetings, contributed to team building. The rule to reread all requirements and add acceptance criteria to each user story was introduced for testers. It has considerably reduced the number of possible bugs at the development stage and improved general understanding of each particular user story.
A QC member created a new checklist for every user story to cover all affected areas. Extending of the regression test documentation has led to more comprehensive testing and relevance for new features.
Mobile applications for iOS and Android have been designed. Corresponding tests were conducted on multiple devices: few smartphones and few tablets with different versions of operating systems. Testing also covered three different browsers on mobile devices and desktop.
Implementation of automated tests has reduced time for every new build merge, speeded up the running of regression testing, and increased platform robustness. Jenkins integration in every environment has provided us with an opportunity for scheduled everyday running of automated tests. It ensures the proper work of all the basic platform features. The creation of new automation scenarios helps us to keep up with project development.
Scheduled running of automated tests, fixing of build issues to keep up with a changing system, conduction of performance testing, drawing up of new scenarios for brand new features - tasks we are responsible for.Automated Testing
Every new build of Android and iOS applications is tested on several devices on beta and actual versions of operating systems. A significant number of bugs in mobile applications have been fixed.Mobile Testing
Most tests are conducted in Chrome (which is a browser of high priority). Both Testrail and Jira help us to have relevant test documentation for regression/automation runs. We also use Browserstack to cover all kinds of browsers and different devices. If a user has an issue with a particular device, we use Android Studio and xCode to emulate any device, investigate the bug and fix it fast.Web Testing
