Creating the most reliable possible overall planning for all in-scope test levels, so that the client can take it into account or make adjustments. The principle of the planning is to fi nd the most important defects fi rst within the framework of the strategy and estimated effort.

Exit Criteria

The planning must at least contain:
  • Activities to be executed (at the phase level per test level)
  • Relationships with and dependencies on other activities (in or out of the test process and between the various test levels)
  • Time to be invested in each test level
  • Required and available resources (people and infrastructure)
  • Required and available lead time
  • Deliverables.
