Seminar Abstract:

Most of the time the testing phase of the application does not allow an end-to-end testing with all the interfaces up and running in QA environment. To remedy the situation the common practice is to have coverage analysis with appropriate risk mitigation in Finacial (large) applications mainly. However the testing scenarios of E-Commerce, Business to Business Models, Electronic Raw Material Acquisition, Auction Engines are not at all different. The present paper provides a statistical analysis of the scenarios and calculates the associated risk for each phase of testing cycle like, Unit, System Integration Testing, End-to-End Testing, UAT.

The purpose of the present paper is to provide an outline of Bayesian Methods (Prior and Posterior analysis) in Software testing with special emphasize on Capability Maturity Model. Different types of testing scenarios will be analysed for each phase of testing like Unit testing, System Integration Testing, End-to-End Testing, User Acceptance Testing and post production maintenance Testing. Manual and Automated testing will be discussed in details for stable QA environment. Finally the benefits of using quantitative analysis to mitigate the associated risk in each phase will be discussed in details.
