What is Early Testing?
Software testing should start early in the Software Development Life Cycle. This helps to capture and eliminate defects in the early stages of SDLC i.e requirement gathering and design phases. An early start to testing helps to reduce the number of defects and ultimately the rework cost in the end.
The various aspects of Early Testing which would help the QA Managers and Leads while developing or devising the Testing Strategy document in SDLC are explained here.
Adoption of Early Test will immensely result in the successful delivery of a Quality Product.
