Hello All, I am working on a freelance testing project and I want to know which model is better for testing in the process and concept point of view between agile and waterfall. Yesterday when i search for difference between them I found this source and as I know waterfall all the development phases of the project are accomplished once and In this method, the test approach is rarely used but not an idea about agile. Can anyone know which model is useful in testing? and what technique agile model used?4 months, 2 weeks ago AthiParticipant
The exact requirements, scope, and nature of a project, as well as the organizational context, all play a role in determining which of the two methods is best. Both methods have their own advantages and disadvantages.
Agile stands out because of its flexibility and iterative methodology. It works well for projects where needs are expected to change or where the result is not immediately noticeable. Agile breaks the project down into smaller sections, allowing for constant project evaluation and adaptation as it moves along. This adaptability is very useful for software development projects since it allows for potential changes in user requirements or technological developments. Agile places a priority on providing a minimum viable product (MVP) as soon as possible and encourages cooperation and regular communication.
On the other hand waterfall model is a more traditional, sequential approach. It is suitable for projects with clear specifications. Waterfall proceeds through different phases which include requirements, design, implementation, testing, deployment, and maintenance.
In summary, the best method to choose depends on the specific characteristics of the project. While Waterfall is suited for projects with stable, well-understood needs, Agile is preferred for dynamic projects with evolving requirements. Some test automation services companies adopt a hybrid model to leverage their strengths. Read more about the same here. In the end, it’s important to match the approach selected with the particular requirements and objectives of the project and organization.
