Pilot test is conducted to do preliminary test or study of the system or evaluation activities to try out procedures and make any needed changes or adjustments. A software vendor may pilot test the software application or system prior to the development stage to estimate cost and time as well as foresee risks to take necessary precautions.
Our software testing approach is based on a pro-active model where defect prevention is given higher importance than defect identification, where the defects are found and fixed before the build is created. We do context driven testing where each project has its own context and the value of testing is enhanced by understanding and using it as an essential reference.
As a part of Software Quality process, we emphasize on both, structural and nonstructural aspects of the system. Nonstructural aspects relate to functional requirements of the system. Structural aspects refer to reliability, maintainability, availability, performance and others. Structural quality is evaluated through the analysis of the software's inner structures and its source code at the unit level, the technology level and the system level. It adheres to the comprehensive principles of software architecture.
What is Pilot Testing
Pilot Testing verifies the major functionality of the system before going into production. In Pilot testing, a selected group of end users try the system under test and provide the feedback before the full deployment of the system.
Reasons for Doing Pilot Testing
Pilot projects are commonplace for many businesses before making a large strategic decision that would impact customer experience or introduce a new channel.
✔ With a pilot project, you get the chance to see how the technology works before choosing to invest in a full-scale solution. It lets you “try before you buy,” if you will. With minimal investment, a pilot project lets you mitigate the risk of upsetting customers or wasting resources.
✔ Even with a pilot project, you want a secure, effective solution in place to properly test your new idea. That means it will take time to implement, but it can be done more quickly than implementing the complete solution. With a smaller scope, there’s less time between saying “go” and seeing the solution take effect.
TEST WITH AN ENGAGED AUDIENCE
✔ By implementing a full solution, your idea is out in the world for anyone who may come upon it. With a pilot project, you have the chance to choose your users, which ensures engaged customers will use your product as expected and provide valuable data.
GET REAL FEEDBACK
✔ With a pilot project, you want a secure, effective solution in place to properly test your new idea.
✔ No matter how much time you spend in your strategic war room, there will always be unexpected results in any project. For example, customers may prefer texting at noon but calling in the evening. Or they might expect the new solution to help them with other services that aren’t supported. It’s better to find the unknown early on and with a smaller audience.
Pilot Testing Benefits
It Perfects The Software – Prior to launch the software has to be perfect from all angles. Most of the testing is conducted by a professional tester who not the actual users of the software. To overcome this difficulty, Pilot Testing is done. This ensures that the software is in the prime state of health even from the actual users’ point.
Easy To Guess Success Rate – None of the other techniques of testing are actually successful in getting the real users’ feedback. This is because none of those tests are done by the users themselves. Pilot Test is successful in gaining the actual users’ feedback. As such, it is possible to judge the chances of success even before the software is released.
