  1. Folder Structure Management Best Practice By Gabriel Rodriguez

  2. Agenda • Folder Structure for Software Testers • Folder Structure for QA Managers and QA Leads • Q&A • Reference

  3. Folder Structure for Software Testers

  4. Folder Structure for Software Testers • The following folder structure is based on the testing life cycle processes. • There are a lot of benefits in organizing your data using this structure • Files will be stored in a systematic way • Files will be easy to find • Historical data for future projects • Work evidence of your tasks • This folder structure can be tailored to meet your needs. (Note: This best practice is based on a real world scenario, ONYX is the name of the project so make sure to customize this best practice to your own project.

  5. Folder Structure for Software Testers • Folder structure example

  6. Folder Structure for Software Testers • Description of the folder structure: • Nemesis Shared Folder • Every team member at Onyx must have a shared folder in \\Nemesis\General\ • Onyx Project • The folder structure depicts several projects (i.e., Washpad, Dragnet, Stardust…) You can start creating folders for each project you have participated

  7. Folder Structure for Software Testers • Description of the folder structure: • Testing Life Cycle Folder Structure • This is the recommended structure to store all your historical data, the structure is composed of the following testing life cycle processes: • (1) Risk Analysis • (2) Planning Process • (3) Test Design • (4) Performing Test • (5) Defect Tracking and Management • (6) Quantitative Measurement • (7) Test Reporting

  8. Folder Structure for Software Testers • Description of the folder structure: • Additions to the folder structure • This is the recommended structure to store all your additions during your daily activities, remember that you can always tailor this section to meet your needs: • (i) SDLC Documentation • (ii) Peer Review Notes • (iii) QA Meeting Notes • (iv) Project Meeting Notes • (v) Testing Literature • (vi) Templates • (..) …

  9. Folder Structure for Software Testers • This is a brief description of the type of data that you can store in each folder: • (1) Risk Analysis • Store Risk Matrix • Store any Risk document related to testing • The following documents can be stored if any risk analysis was performed on them, otherwise store them in a separated folder (Addition Structure) • Requirement Documents • Functional Documents • Design Documents • (2) Planning Process • Store Test Plans • Store QA Project Plans

  10. Folder Structure for Software Testers • (3) Test Design • Store Test Design documents • Store Test Cases • Store E2E Scenarios • Store Test Matrix • Store Test Data • (4) Performing Test • Store Test Execution Log • Sore Test Cases Executed in each Test Pass with Pass/Fail criteria

  11. Folder Structure for Software Testers • (5) Defect Tracking and Management • Store Description of defects found in each Test Pass • Store Screenshots of the defects • (6) Quantitative Management • Store Number of Defects found in each test pass • (7) Test Reporting • Test Report Results • Store Weekly Status Reports

  12. Folder Structure for Software Testers • (i) SDLC Documentation • Store any documents related to Software Development Life Cycle • (ii) Peer Review Notes • Store any peer review notes • (iii) QA Meeting Notes • Store any notes related to QA Weekly meetings • (iv) Project Meeting Notes • Store any notes related to Project Meetings • (v) Testing Literature • Store any articles you consider important • (vi) Templates • Store any templates

  13. Folder Structure for Software Testers • Folder Structure and hierarchy

  14. Folder Structure for QA Managers and QA Leads

  15. Folder Structure for QA Managersand QA Leads • The following folder structure is based on the CSTE Common Body of Knowledge • There are a lot of benefits in organizing your data using this structure • Files will be stored in a systematic way • Files will be easy to find • Historical data for future projects • Work evidence of your tasks • This folder structure can be tailored to meet your needs

  16. Folder Structure for QA Managersand QA Leads • The following is an example of the folder structure

  17. Folder Structure for QA Managers and QA Leads • Description of the folder structure: • Nemesis Shared Folder • Every team member at Onyx must have a shared folder in \\Nemesis\General\ • Onyx Project • The folder structure depicts several projects (i.e., Washpad, Dragnet, Stardust…) You can start creating folders for each project you have participated

  18. Folder Structure for QA Managers and QA Leads • Description of the folder structure: • CSTE Common Body Of Knowledge • This is the recommended structure to store all your historical data • (1) Test Environment • (2) Test Planning • (3) Executing The Test Plan • (4) Test Analysis and Reporting • (5) Defect Tracking and Management

  19. Folder Structure for QA Managers and QA Leads • Description of the folder structure: • Additions to the folder structure • This is the recommended structure to store all your additions during your daily activities, remember that you can always tailor this section to meet your needs: • (i) Templates • (ii) Outlook Backup • (iii) QA Website • (iv) Testing Literature • (v) Dump • (..) …
