Now, we will do in contrast "Tests using (Design and Functional) Specifications (Part-2)"
Read the Project Documentations:
There are different kinds of documents may be available:
User Guides / Manuals
These documents are very important and can help to build the product and test it.
Seek Guidance … Ask others:
To understand “what to be tested”, you must learn to ask others about the product and seek guidance who has relevant knowledge about the product workflow.
Use Test Case Design Techniques:
The test case designs can be developed using these three important techniques:
User based Scenarios
Boundary value Analysis (BVA)
Equivalence Partitioning (EP)
If you still want to understand about the system and learn to develop more test cases.
Learn to Question others. It can be to “Users”, “Project Managers”, “Programmers” and even “Testers”. Remember; think you don’t know anything and ask them to tell about the product, but don’t forget to interrupt to explain more in detail.
This can help you to generate more test ideas of what to test.
Test generation is a skill, it should be learnt and understand to create good test cases and helps to provide exactly or more than the customer needs.
Tip to Management: Create a friendly environment between the teams to interact frequently; this can help the product successful.
