Effective tester & analyst cooperation
In the software development process communication between the testing and analysis is inevitable. To give tester a clear and high-quality documentation, analysts need to understand what he should change / reword / clarify and that`s why a dialogue and teamplay are required. All team members should also clearly understand how to deal with each other - analysts can be different and sometimes they speak an unknown language.We all know that a true (waterfall) testing should begin as soon as possible - with the documentation. So the testers questions occur in the early stages of creating / writing of the documentation. In general communication between the two camps is more active than it seems. That`s why (as well as for other reasons) an analyst rides whip and spur to the tester - all for software quality! A good example is a large number of tools for tests -requirements synchronizing, for example, Polarion or QC.
