More often than not projects are always tested for their viability before being executed. As projects are often time consuming it is segregated into smaller parts and tested. The process involves creating a life like environment and testing each of the segregated parts prior to their actual implementation. Ideally, any project if successful in a testing environment is also successful in actuality. Unfortunately, projects are not religiously tested before their actual implementation which often leads to their unsuccessful completion.
Testing outcomes are critically observed by stakeholders, members of management, and business analysts as they provide the future course of action. The usual objective of a project is to gauge its usability for end-users at a price that is affordable. Timely delivery is another major consideration for evaluating the feasibility of any new project.
Objectives and Obstacles
Projects are conceived and executed with definite objectives in mind. Every organization has its short term and long term objectives which are achieved through different projects. As meeting objectives are important for a company, carrying out project tests are thus essential. Tests should be conducted with sincerity and completeness as they are intimately connected with achieving company objectives. Scope of test, test data, testing methods, and test schedule should be in absolute order so that they are similar to established scope of a project.
