How to Make Your Development and QA Work Together?

When developers and testers work together, consult with one another and coordinate on a project, the team always delivers high-quality software. This type of close collaboration helps developers to meet deadlines, testers to release bug-free features and customers to enjoy a superior product.

It can be tough to manage deadlines and work pressures for both Development and QA teams because they have very different roles within a company.

To minimize the time and effort spent finding creative ideas, consider these suggestions:

Team approach to our work

In any team, every member has a clear role to play and without each other, the project wouldn’t be complete. To strengthen this unity, it’s important to have a “we are a team” approach from the start. It’s very important to encourage interaction between QA and Development from the first day of the project because as they work together and clarify misunderstandings that arise, problems can be solved quickly. More often than not, when either group realizes that the main goal is building a great product together, conflicts can be resolved easily.

Complimenting Roles

To operate as a successful business, we need to know and respect the roles of everyone on our team. As members of the development and quality assurance teams, it’s important to understand that you have a significant amount of overlap. Though your work profiles may be different, together you form an interdependent group with a well-rounded skill set.

Programmers spend much of their time on maker tasks, which involve concentrating on complex software builds for clients. During these times, bug reports are considered a distraction. However, using an official bug reporting platform can help maintain the peace.

The development team should make time for bug fixes, and the QA team should make time for reporting new bugs. Bug fixes are important to the stability of your application, and letting other people know about bugs can help prevent them from being overlooked.

What does a customer want?

A customer wants to be engaged and find what they’re looking for quickly, easily, and intuitively. When building software, developers should be able to understand the customer needs and how their product will help meet them. Customer expectations are always evolving, which is why it’s important that QA analysts test a product before release and understand customer insights. With every technological development, customers have higher expectations of the products they buy; Apple is a good example.

For example, customers now expect an app or software to be easy to use and reflect what they’re used to doing in the real world. A customer-centric approach to development can keep your software usable and customer-friendly.

Encourage Communication

Real communication is key to a successful project. QA analysts should make themselves available to talk with developers whenever they can. If they’re not sure of each other’s skills, things will certainly be difficult. Work on developing strong group communication for the duration of the project through an existing tool or platform.
