Test in Development of IT systems : A study of methods and procedures for low-level test (English)
Abstract [sv]

Test av informationssystem är en viktig del inom systemutvecklingsprocessen för att minimera felaktigheter och förbättra tillförlitligheten av system. Trafikverkets IT enhet hade ett fastställt och strukturerat testarbete för high-level test däremot hade de inte ett fastställt strukturerat testarbete inom low-level test. Vi fick i uppdrag att undersöka metoder och arbetssätt som fanns inom low-level test. Vi skulle också jämföra system som genomgått ett strukturerat testarbete inom low- och high-level test mot system som genomgått ostrukturerat low-level test och strukturerat high-level test. Målet med examensarbetet var att föreslå lämpliga metoder och arbetsätt inom low-level test för Trafikverkets IT enhet. Målet var också att ge en rekommendation ifall ett strukturerat testarbete inom low- och high-level var att rekommendera i jämförelse mot system som genomgått ostrukturerat low-level test och strukturerat high-level test. Genom litterära studier och intervjuer med Trafikverkets resurser genomförde vi vår undersökning och kom fram till vårt resultat.Vår rekommendation för Trafikverket IT var att de ska använda sig utav testdriven utveckling eftersom utvecklarna var osäkra på vad som skulle testas och metoden skulle klargöra detta. Dessutom ville de ha valmöjligheter och riktlinjer som skulle ge dem en mer bestämd arbetsstruktur. Vi rekommenderar också en anpassning av Self-Governance ramverket där aktiviteter väljs ut för varje projekt av en metodansvarig eller projektansvarig (Scrum Master) som bestämmer vilka aktiviteter som ska utföras på individ- och gruppnivå.

Abstract [en]

Testing of information systems is an essential part of the system development process to minimize errors and improve the reliability of systems. Trafikverket IT unit had a structured testing in the test phase high-level, however, they had not a structured testing in the development phase, low-level tests. We were assigned to examine methods and working methods in low-level test. We also would compare systems that had undergone a structuredtesting in low-and high-level test against systems that had undergone an unstructured low-leveltest and structured high-level test.The goal of the thesis was to propose appropriate method/methods in low-level test for Trafikverket IT unit. The goal was also to make a recommendation if a structured testing in low-and high-level were to be recommended in comparison with systems that had undergone unstructured low-level test and structured high-level test. Through literary studies and interviews with Trafikverket employees we reached our result. Our recommendation for Trafikverket IT is that they should use test-driven development because developers were unsure of what should be tested and the method would make thisclear. The developers also wanted to have options and guidelines that would give them a definite work structure. We also recommend an adaptation of the Self-Governance frameworkfrom where activities can be selected from each project manager (Scrum Master) that determines which activities will be performed in individual- and group level for each project.
