The unit test is the process of executing a set of test conditions on a unit of the system to verify that it performs its assigned function. The unit test begins after a unit of the system is tailored to fit the client team’s needs. It is completed when the functionality of the activity, PCS, YBR flow, etc., has no defects.
Note: This unit test is a combination of what was formerly known as unit testing and function testing.
Each component of the system (activity, PCS, YBR flow, etc.) is a unit of the system. Many associates are accountable for the quality of the configuration and unit test. The unit test is typically planned and designed by the Systems Analyst, while the Lead Systems Analyst and Benefits Operations Manager review the test plan. A few of the unit test conditions from the unit test plan should be informally executed after configuration and prior to handing the unit over for test execution. These informal test conditions should represent a sample of the unit’s functionality to confirm that the configuration was successful enough to continue further testing. The Setup Configuration Analyst assigned the unit test can then execute and evaluate the entire test plan.
