Domain name wrong or not usable Broken links, broken s Server load – too many hits on the site Client side performance –down load time Security isn’t working Content is out of date Browser incompatibility, HTML doesn’t validate Interface – navigation, link colour Graphics missing or too large Scripts don’t work - forms, databases Isn’t accessible to those with disabilities

18 What you can test Functional testing Compatibility testing
Load/performance testing Stress testing Usability testing Security testing Integration of unit testing Link testing HTML Validation Reliability testing Regression testing

19 Why have quality?

20 The Deming Cycle or PDCA Cycle
PLAN CHECK DO ACT Plan a change to the process. Predict the effect this change will have and plan how the effects will be measured Implement the change on a small scale and measure the effects Adopt the change as a permanent modification to the process, or abandon it. Study the results to learn what effect the change had, if any.

21 Cause and Effect Analysis
(Fish-Bone or Ishikawa Diagrams) • Helps the group to visualise the problem • Encourages divergent thinking but along a logical path • Provides diagram for easy discussion • Based on brainstorming but more visual
