Level 1- Initial (no maturity goals)

  • In this phase testing is a confusion process,it is not well defined,and it is not different from debugging .

  • SRS document is also not available.

  • testing is done temporarily after the coding phase was completed.

  • testing and debugging are actually different but we treat as same here to find bugs in software.

  • There is no quality assurance team in this phase.

  • lack of resources and properly trained staff results in low quality of software.

  • The objective of testing is to find errors and  to know the how software is working.
