The process of quality assurance is not just analyzing the several distinct modules of software code. The purpose of and advantages of quality assurance is to meet the expectation of your end users, and their needs with reliable, secure, and stable solutions. Several tasks come as a package of quality assurance. But when and how to engage the QA experts in your project? How are they playing a crucial role in the software development lifecycle? We are trying to answer these questions in this article.

Do we need Quality Assurance Analysts? We have already met several businesses that claim to have the best software developers or coders, Their code always meets the requirements and expectations without any bugs. According to them, their business doesn’t need QA professionals in their project. However, this is a major misconception in their thought process regarding the need for quality assurance. Hence, we are going to discuss and clarify the importance of QA and how it will help businesses.

What is The Importance of Quality Assurance?

According to the experts, the quality process involves several steps combining multiple steps with one goal. The goal of quality assurance is to ensure the security, usability, and functionalities are meeting the requirements and quality standards. The QA also detects the possible risks with security and performance concerns of the products. So that there won’t be any issues after the product release.

Quality Assurance always comes up with the following two terms.

  1. Quality Control
  2. Software testing

Though, these terms address different problems but they have a common goal as interest. 

Quality Assurance 

It is the continuous process of improving the process of Quality Control. To be more precise, it focuses on improving the organizational standards of quality management. It tracks the consistency of the product’s production process. QA aims to identify the risks and consider the measures to avoid those issues even before they occur.

QA focuses on the process and is involved from the pre-development phase.

Quality Control

It verifies whether the product meets its functional requirements. It is a process that ensures the quality of a product is maintained. Also, all the errors or bugs are eliminated in the process. This process is generally applied in the post-development and pre release phases. 

Quality control focuses on the whole product.

Software Testing

Software testing is a process to identify defects, bugs or issues. Also, it ensures that all bugs are solved successfully.

Although, ignoring any of the above QA processes can bring down the cost of a project with faster delivery of features. Still, it might turn out to be a huge risk for both technical and commercial terms.

It evaluates the source code as well as the design of the software. It is carried out during the testing phase or the development phase.

What are the Possible Risks Businesses Can Face By Ignoring the Software Quality Assurance Testing?

The businesses can go through several losses if they come across any loss of quality. Be it with performance, security, usability, etc. a single miscalculation can lead to severe loss.

  • Delay in delivery or software release by missing the deadlines
  • Late deliveries or rework leads to extra costs causing several losses to the finances of the business
  • Poor quality or inability to provide the product on time will damage the reputation of your business.
  • Low quality or bugged or slow performance will damage the reputation of your business.

Advantages of Quality Assurance in Software Development

However, the proper implementation of quality assurance in software development can have the following major advantages

  • Predict the possible risks and vulnerabilities at the early stages of software development
  • The fast and optimized software development cycle
  • Assurance of improved security of the software
  • Better performance of the software
  • Improved user experience
  • Reduction in the costs of projects.

Thus, the business does not need quality assurance at the end but throughout the process. They must involve the QA experts from the beginning of the project requirement gathering stage.

Why And When To Involve QAs In Software Development?

Even with the conventional method of the software development lifecycle, quality assurance plays an important role. However, the agile software development process brings better results. At Creatiosoft, we follow the following six key stages for teaming up with the best QA and SDET engineers.

  1. Review the project documentation
  2. Plan and estimate the testing process
  3. Prepare test document
  4. Test the product
  5. Stabilize the product
  6. Maintain the product

How Quality Assurance Testing Approach Of Creatiosoft Is Benefitting Businesses?


Review the project documentation

At Creatiosoft, we involve our QA experts from the early stages. They play an active role in reviewing project documentation and requirements. This helps us in gaining the following goals.

  • Get familiar with initial product requirements
  • Detect potential contradictions in goals
  • Eliminate inaccuracies in product specifications
  • Complete and finalize product requirement

Planning and estimation of the testing process

Planning and estimation of the testing process

Our QA engineers focus to create testing strategies and testing plans for every new project or task. They include the following activities while planning the testing activities

  • Preparing a test plan
  • Determining a test strategy
  • Estimating QA activities
  • Preparing a testing schedule
  • Assessing risks
  • Selecting testing tools

Our QA experts primarily focus on planning to provide insights on possible product improvements. 

Preparation Of Test Documentation

At Creatiosoft, our SDET engineers design the test documentation. This helps in covering the following tasks.

  • Introduce new specialists to the project
  • Evaluate team efficiency
  • Report on completed tests and detected bugs
  • Implement process automation, etc.

Software Testing

We consider the following factors while performing the software testing. 

  • Type of Project
  • Technologies used
  • Core functionality
  • Potential weaknesses, etc.

After considering these factors, the QA experts perform the software testing with the right testing approach. There are two types of testing

  1. Functional Testing
  2. Non-functional testing

Let’s say, there is a game where the stakeholders are adding new features in it. Now, the game testers need to plan accordingly ensuring that these additions should not impact the performance of the game at any level. 

Quality Assurance testers need to validate that the game remains secure and its performance remains stable even under severe loads. We perform the game testing by gathering and analyzing several metrics such as CPU load on the 

  • server side, 
  • system response time, 
  • the number of requests per second, 
  • and error rate. 

If any loading issue appears, then both QA engineers and game developers should fix the issue at once.

Product stabilization

Once we have resolved all issues and our product is ready for release. Our QA engineers incorporate the stakeholders to make sure that the software is stable and performant. Also, we ensure that the final deliverable possesses all features of our client’s expectations.

Precisely, our QA engineers help our clients with the following tasks:

  • Run final tests to verify the performance, stability, reliability, and security of the software
  • Verify whether the final deliverable matches the requirements and expectations
  • Outline and implement suggestions to improve the quality of the software.

Product Maintenance

Even after the release of the software, our QA experts continue to work on improving the performance of the software. They ensure that the software is not just working but works efficiently. The fast and efficient software or product eventually attracts new customers. We also detect that no factor should compromise the stability of the product.

These six critical practices ensure the successful execution of software development. Our QA experts ensure the delivery of a solution that matches the quality standards while matching the requirements and expectations.
