Deployment notes

  • Is updated training material produced and disseminated?
  • Is it confirmed that deployments are completed?
  • Are the results of improvement deployments documented? For example:
    • Lessons learned and problems encountered during the deployment
    • Test process and testing technology improvement measures, objectives, priorities
  • Is the actual cost cost, effort and schedule measured for deploying each test process and testing technology improvement?
  • Is the progress toward achieving the organisation’s test process performance objectives monitored and analysed and corrective actions taken when needed?
