Process impact: This is a test run log for manual system testing. A test run is logged whenever the manual system test suite is carried out. The log overview helps visualize the set of system configurations that have been tested and those that have not. Clearly understanding the degree to which the system has been tested helps to assess progress, assess risk, and focus ongoing testing efforts.
  • Review the target audience, environmental requirements, and possible deployments to understand the set of possible system configurations that could be tested.
  • Use a table or list to describe that set of possible configurations. Mark each possibility with Pending, N/A, or Waived.
  • Track each test run with an issue in the issue tracker or an item in the test-runs document.
  • Periodically review the set of possible system configurations to identify any additional needed test runs.
