What is Iterative Testing


Definition of Iterative Testing

When conducting iterative testing, a design or development team will make small, incremental changes to the product, based on insights gained from previous changes.

Iterative testing is a valuable tool for SaaS and tech-based companies because it allows for small, easy-to-manage changes rather than large sweeping ones.

General FAQ

When does rapid iterative testing make sense?
Rapid iterative testing makes sense when you have a prototype ready for users to test, are looking for fast hands-on feedback, and still have the time to change the product’s design before it’s expected to hit the market.
What is meant by iterative model in testing?
The iterative model is a way to break down a large application’s testing and development into smaller, more manageable chunks during the Software Development Lifecycle. It begins as a streamlined version with a limited number of software requirements, before growing in complexity until a wider feature set is incorporated, bringing the system closer to its final state.
What is iterative testing methodology?
The iterative testing methodology is a process in which a product undergoes repeated testing and tweaks throughout different stages of its development. The aim is to reduce or remove any issues affecting usability and user experience ahead of the launch date. This is vital to ensure customers receive maximum value for their money.
