User Acceptance Testing Integration Testing for the SAP Upgrade
What is User Acceptance Testing? End users testing the system Using a set of integrated scenarios with pre- determined data Final round of testing following EBS team testing Ensure that the system operates as the user expects
Why do we do the User Acceptance Test? Uncover any issues not identified in previous testing cycles Allow end users to transact in the upgraded system and view any changes to it Provide user input to the business process owners to accept the system and sign-off for go-live
User Acceptance testing is not… A chance to change how the system or processes works A chance to recommend new functionality The opportunity to create new test cases (except after the execution of the prepared scripts, as time permits)
What is my responsibility as a tester? Follow the scripts as written Analyze the results Record results, include document number, PERNR or other pertinent information for follow-on steps Notify test support of failed steps
What do the scenarios look like? Scenarios are end-to-end strings of business processes that mirror daily work Each scenario was written by users familiar with the business processes and steps Spreadsheet format Printed on paper for you to use for testing and recording results
How is the test conducted? All testing is done in a room set aside for this purpose; Training Room 4 at Mt. Washington, Davis Building, second floor, 9 AM to 4 PM. We ask that users follow the schedule provided. The laptops in the room have an icon to connect to the QA (quality assurance) environment.
How is the test conducted? - continued Users have the same access as they have in production. The test support team will assist users with any issues. This team will open a JIRA (Issue Tracking software) for documenting any failed step. Users will turn in their marked up scenario sheets when testing is completed, or at the end of the day.
When is the testing? Testing begins on March 1 and continues through April 2. The core hours are 9 AM to 4 PM, Monday through Friday Specific assignments are available on the scheduling spreadsheet This is a five week period – First three are for scenario execution – Last two weeks for retest of failed steps
How is the test conducted? - continued If you use a Mac, we have two workstations for you to test from that platform. Other laptops have IE 7 or IE 8; all are marked. BW runs overnight-all transactions finished by 7PM will be available in BW for verification by 9AM the next day. Most tests will require only 1-2 days for execution. You will be asked to return and retest failed steps once remediation is complete.
What are the scenarios? Life cycle of a Grant Life cycle of a Capital Project Life cycle of Fixed Assets Life cycle of Travel Life cycle of AP Procure to Pay Finance Miscellaneous HR/Payroll (completing on separate schedule)
Conclusion User Acceptance Testing is a way to be sure that the system works from the perspective of the business user. The results of this test are input to the go/no-go decision for taking the upgraded system live. EBS appreciates your time and effort in helping to make the upgrade of SAP a success.
