Before delivering the solution to the customer, the project must be tested to ensure that all use cases and requirements are met. The solution architect will work with the responsible technicians to create a detailed test plan to be implemented to ensure that all the project objectives have been satisfied.
The Manufacturing environment “Quality Assurance” (QA) is created with hardware and software identical to those that will be used in production for testing purposes. All new content developed is moved from the development environment to the QA environment for testing and acceptance before being placed in the final Production environment. This procedure ensures that the system used in Production is stable and tested to minimize risk.
