In this stage you prepare the test case specification document which contains the details for each test case name listed in the requirements coverage report.
The document should start with a few words about the document purpose and the details of the test environment including the systems covered by the test spec, the hardware, the software, test tools, network requirements and any other special needs required to execute the tests in the document.
Each test case should contain a header consitisting of:
- Test Case Name
- Test Objective / Description
- Preconditions / Prerequisites
- Covered Requirement
and then a series of step by step instructions on how to perform the test. Each step should consist of three columns:
- Step Number
- Step Description
- Expected Result
