Quality Engineering is defined as a process that produces the best product possible. It requires substantial effort across the SDLC to ensure that all areas are adequately tested. Here are some core areas of Quality Engineering:
- Unit Test Automation
- Code Coverage Analysis
- System Performance
- Service Virtualization
- Test Automation
- Test Driven Development
- End to End Data Validation
A few objectives that are accomplished through Quality Engineering:
- Improve test effectiveness
- Leverage quality metrics in order to make better decisions
- Find defects earlier
Quality Engineering is a repeatable process that leverages tools to accelerate time to market. It takes Quality Assurance to another level and produces predictable results. Quality Engineering is expanded across development, testing, and release management teams. Organizations that are able to create a collaborative Quality Engineering practice will be the most successful.
