Quality Management for Virtual World Applications - Process and Artifacts

Disclosed is a document designed to illustrate a complete Quality Management process for virtual world applications. It includes the following aspects:

Quality management tasks on each phase of the development cycle:

  Visioning
- define roles and responsibilities for quality management resources - review vision document and provide feedback
- review business cases and provide feedback
- conduct risk assessment

  Design
- review use cases and provide feedback
- review design artifacts provide feedback -

plan testing effort - test environment preparation, test cases/scripts development

- define processes

  Build - the tasks identified below are to be performed iteratively until exit criteria has be met
- continue reviewing design artifacts
- continue developing test cases/scripts
- execute tests including performing regression test after each new build and starting community test
- manage defects
- report final test results

  Maintain
- execute regression test
- execute new function test

3D skill sets required for Quality Management practitioners:

  3D interaction techniques
- 3D testers are players. They need to learn object manipulation, navigation, system control to effectively maneuver in virtual world
- 3D testers need to add the 3D dimension aspect when creating test cases and executing them. Since testing is often is not performed by an individual tester, it is ess...
