A test plan is a document that contains a test strategy for a project, lays out its objectives and goals, the schedule, and estimated and required resources. In our past article on the test plan we talked in more detail about what is, and how to go about writing it. If you need the information to kick the process off, as well as some examples, it is a good place to start.
Note, that the lists should serve as a guideline, and your test plan doesn’t have to follow the list to the tee. Obviously, you can adjust the order, shift some of the sections, remove or add some other sections, as you see fit.
