Planning Tests
The activity of planning tests involves answering the following questions:

What and Where? Requirements, visual models, and other test inputs tell you
what to test and where to run the tests.
s
Why Test inputs tell you why you are going to do certain tests. For example, tests
may be performed to validate system requirements.
s
When? Iteration plans tell you when the tests must be run and must pass.
s
Who? Test plans, iteration plans, or project plans tell you who performs the
testing activities.
