Test Planning
The test plan is used by QA managers to outline the overall test strategy for a project and provide status information on the progress of testing at a project level. They can monitor test coverage and the ongoing status of the QA effort against the stated test plan, and evaluate the level of maturity of the software through defect management and other key test-related metrics.
