  • 1. Introduction User Acceptance Testing (UAT) is one sure way to reduce or eliminate change requests, and drastically reduce project costs. If your organization does not practice UAT or does not have a mature process of UAT, this article provides information to hopefully persuade you to re-consider. UAT is an effective process with a high rate of return for those who take the time to implement and follow its discipline. If missing from the software development life cycle, your organization is missing a great opportunity to improve project success.
  • 2. What IS UAT • User Acceptance Testing (UAT) - also called beta testing, application testing, and/or end user testing - is a phase of software development in which the software is tested in the "real world" by the intended audience or a business representative. Whilst the technical testing of IT systems is a highly professional and exhaustive process, testing of business functionality is an entirely different proposition.
  • 3. UAT Goal • If you ask somebody the question “What is the goal of a software test?'' you might get an answer like: “The goal is to prove that a system does what it is supposed to do''. This answer is not exactly correct and demonstrates the necessity to define some fundamentals about software testing. Another response would be, “The goal is to find faults or defects''. • The goal of User Acceptance Testing is to assess if the system can support day-to-day business and user scenarios and ensure the system is sufficient and correct for business usage.
  • 4. UAT Test Cases • The User Acceptance Test Cases help the test execution team to test the application thoroughly. This also helps ensure that the UA testing provides sufficient coverage of all the UAT scenarios. The Use Cases created during the Requirements definition phase may be used as inputs for creating test cases. • The User Acceptance Test Case describes in a simple language the precise steps to be taken to test something
  • 5. Summary • Whether your organization designates the functional role associated with testing as a Business Analyst, Tester, or Quality Assurance professional, User Acceptance Testing done well will engage those responsible very early on in the project development cycle. DevelopMentor Business Analysis curriculum offers many opportunities for learning the skills required of those responsible for UAT.
