Maintaining Website Quality Standards…

The need for maintaining quality standards has increased rapidly as a result of the steady rise in the value sourcing space. Hence, it is of prime importance that every web project passes through a rigid quality check before its launch.

Let us have a quick glance at some of the important points to be kept in mind while planning a basic Quality Assurance (QA) process/ Quality Policy.

  • Before commencing a web project, ask yourself four very important questions:

    • What are the features of the website?
    • How to design a website so that it highlights the features in an effective way?
    • How to code every feature and test every unit?
    • How to test the website before delivering it to the end customer?
  • Develop a successful System Development Life Cycle (SDLC) process. SDLC basically means a process which is used to build an information system which includes the validation, requirements, user ownership and training. Your SDLC process should include the following steps:
    • Figure out your budget and evaluate whether the project is feasible or not?
    • Analyze and design the website according to the business requirements of the company.
    • Translate the design into coding using a number of programming tools like Pascal, C, C++ etc.
    • Next step is to test the website coding like unit testing, user acceptance testing, system testing etc.
    • The project should be well equipped to accommodate any changes after it is delivered to the customer.
  • Some of the major features of quality testing consists of:-
    • Testing Functionality:
      Functionality testing ensures that the project correctly conform the required functions. This means checking and testing the project for its accuracy.

    • Compatibility Testing:
      The web project should comply with W3C standards, should be compatible to work on different search engines and should be able to work on various Operating Systems, browsers and hardware.

    • Testing for Performance:
      Performance testing involves testing the project on the basis of its response time, loading speed, availability etc.

    • Testing for Usability:
      User Acceptance Testing (UAT) ensures that the project is tested according to the business requirement/s of the customer.

In order to identify any limitation or weakness, it is necessary to incorporate the QA processes during the performance testing stage. Once the product (website) is launched, it sets an image in the minds of the customers. And if there is any defect in it, then all the efforts go waste which leads to dearth in revenue and loss of customers. Also, a bigger project calls for a systematized process of quality testing.

The aforesaid are some of the essential points to be considered as a part of your quality testing policy that can boost the overall competence of your project.
