12 QA Life Cycle consists of 5 types of
Phase V: QA Testing QA Life Cycle consists of 5 types of testing regimens: 1. Unit Testing 2. Functional Testing 3. System Integration Testing 4. Regression Testing 5. User Acceptance Testing MGD Services, Inc.

13 1. Unit Testing The testing, by development, of the application modules to verify each unit (module) itself meets the accepted user requirements and design and development standards MGD Services, Inc.

14 2. Functional Testing The testing of all the application’s modules individually to ensure the modules, as released from development to QA, work together as designed and meet the accepted user requirements and system standards MGD Services, Inc.

15 3. System Integration Testing
Testing of all of the application modules in the same environment, database instance, network and inter-related applications, as it would function in production. This includes security, volume and stress testing MGD Services, Inc.

16 4. Regression Testing This is the testing of each of the application’s system builds to confirm that all aspects of a system remain functionally correct after program modifications. Using automated regression testing tools is the preferred method MGD Services, Inc.
