Hey, guys
i know this question is not related to delphi, but i don't care to give me points out here.
Which testing method are most people used to tset their system? and how to document it down?

My company are damn suck! doesn't have a proper test method for me to test thier system. They simply just me to test the system and record everything what i just tested...

i hope that can get some advice from you experts, for me to test the system properly.

thanks alot

josh,
  Are you talking about testing an application?
  A good way to do that would be to first write down test cases: what are the expected (and unexpected) inputs possible to the application, and what is its expected output. The cases can also include system performance etc. if that is an important criteria in your app.
  Write the results of your tests (pass/fail) when you test using the test cases.
  Then, feed those inputs to the application and see if you get the expected result.
  That essentially is a generic explanation of testing, without knowing what exactly you want to test.
  Hope that helps,
...Snehanshu

joshfly,
  I don't find your test plan/test case question stupid :-) The SQA does all this for us here, so I don't know the exact definitions myself.
  My answer may not be accurate, but here's my understanding: A test plan would include what are the things that you want to test, like System performance, Speed, input/result, what are the tools you would use for testing, would the testing be automated or manual etc.
  Then, based on your test plan, you can write test cases for each thing you want to test.

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

Regarding documentation, we document things in excel.
Here are the columns we have for Test Cases:
****
Test ID
Description
Input's (if any)
Expected Result
Actual Result
PASS / FAIL
****

Perhaps you can call the collection of test cases as a test plan.
Then, we have a bug report sheet which lists the bugs found for each test case. The bug report has following columns:

Tester (bug report):
****
Bug ID.
TestCase ID
Bug Description
Severity H / M / L
Tested by
Test Date mm/dd/yyyy
****

Developer (after reading bug report)
****
Severity & Comments by Developer
Fixed / Open
Developer Name
Date mm/dd/yyyy
Remarks
****

Tester (After developer fixes the bug)
****
Status: O / C / R
Date mm/dd/yyyy
Remarks
****

Legend:
O - Open
C - Close
R - Reopen
H - High
M - Medium
L - Low
