1. What is the most important impact QA can have on a product development process?
The most important impact QA can have on a product development process is the increase in the quality of the products.
2. Name 3 things in a development process that effect quality, and briefly describe each.
Requirement Specification – Without proper requirements, there would constant changes and this would effect ultimately the quality of the product.
Design – Even though we have exact requirements, we need to design in such a way it encompasses simplicity, scalability and reliability among other factors.
Domain knowledge – This is necessary since it wouldnt be wise for a software engineer with no knowledge of hospitals to code a critical emergency software product.
3. What kind of metrics would you use to describe the results of a simple load test?
CPU Utilization, Speed, Stability, Accuracy, Latency
4. How do you determine when you have done enough testing?
Depends but mostly when negative and positive testing give out the correct results as expected.
