    Test implementation and execution

    - It is the activity by means of which test conditions are transformed into test cases and testware.

    - It is also the time at which the test environment is put in place.

    - It has the following major tasks:

    1. Developing and prioritizing test cases

    2. Creating test data

    3. Writing test procedures

    4. Preparing test harnesses

    5. Writing automated test scripts

    6. Creating test suites from the test cases with a view to producing efficient test execution

    7. Verifying that the test environment has been set up correctly

    8. Executing test cases (either manually or by using test execution tools) according to the planned sequence

    9. Logging the outcome of test execution and recording the identities and versions of the software under test, test tools and testware (test recording)

    10. Comparing actual results with expected results

    11. Reporting discrepancies as incidents and analysing them in order to establish their cause (for example, a defect in the code, in specified test data, in the test document, or a mistake in the way the test was executed)

    12. Repeating test activities as result of action taken for each discrepancy. For example, re-execution of a test that previously failed in order to confirm a fix (confirmation testing or re-testing), execution of a corrected test and / or execution of tests in order to ensure that defects have not been introduced in unchanged areas of the software or that defect fixing did not uncover other defects (regression testing)
