Skyline Hosts Milwaukee SPIN Meeting
Location: Skyline Technologies, N16W23217 Stone Ridge Drive, Suite 200, Waukesha, WI 53188

A testing effort must have a beginning and an end.  To understand what the end looks like (what “done” looks like), an accurate and efficient testing estimate based on risk is paramount.  This discussion focuses on how you can use 3 simple Project Management techniques to generate and improve your test estimations.  Projects are more easily understood if broken down into smaller units.  In project management, this is referred to as a Work Breakdown Structure (WBS).  This same technique can be used for Test Estimation optimization.  We use the Constraint Triangle (also called the Project Management Triangle or the Iron Triangle) to determine customer satisfaction based on 3 (sometimes 6) differentiating factors. The risk based test estimation can be derived in a similar fashion.  Finally, understanding what “done” looks like using elicitation from key stakeholder interviews can help you determine where the end of your testing effort really is.
