  User acceptance testing - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
User Acceptance Testing (UAT) is a process to obtain confirmation by a Subject Matter Expert (SME), preferably the owner or client of the object under test, through trial or review, that the modification or addition meets mutually agreed-upon requirements.
The test designer may or may not be the creator of the formal test cases for the same system.
These tests, which are usually performed by clients or end-users, are not focussed on identifying simple problems such as spelling errors and cosmetic problems, nor show stopper bugs, such as software crashes); testers and developers previously identify and fix these issues during earlier unit testing, integration testing, and system testing phases.

 User Acceptance Test   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-11)
The software to be user acceptance tested has been successfully system or suite tested.
User acceptance testing is performed by the 'end users' to ensure that the individual elements (menu item, screen, report) and the overall system, provide the desired result or functionality.
Any units rejected during user acceptance testing will be returned to the appropriate stage, for correction of the code or the design.

 User Acceptance Testing
User Acceptance Testing should be used to test that a product is satisfactory to an end-user or customer, though its role and form do vary from company to company.
The user should be involved in the testing which should be designed to enable him or her to determine if the system meets their business requirements and will work in their business environment.
If they don't know already, users may need to be trained in the purpose and form of UAT, what their responsibilities are, a method of showing the business processes graphically and breaking them down for testing, and in the use of the system under test.

Unit Testing is the first step in the testing process, and is usually conducted by the programmer to ensure that a program operates as defined by the User.
User Acceptance Testing is a very critical stage of the testing process since it is managed by the Users to determine if the application meets the terms of the requirements document.
User Acceptance Testing, which is sometimes combined with a Simulated Work Environment, should also ensure that the Users can complete a day's work in a work day.

User acceptance testing is a phase of the software development process, in which the software is subject to scrutiny by the intended users of the application.
The experiences of the user acceptance testers are essential to provide feedback to the development team as to whether that application meets the user requirement for the system.
It is typically the final phase of testing prior to deployment of the application, and frequently used as contractual signoff for handover of the application.

 Testing
Technical testing and tuning examines the capability of the solution to be operated safely, efficiently and dependably at normal and peak levels of usage.
User Acceptance Testing (UAT) is a common name for the type of testing that forms the basis for the business accepting the solution from its developers (whether internal or external).
If, therefore, the developers' formal testing is done with full participation of the business and with the responsible user managers having prime authority over the content, review and sign-off of the tests, the requirement for user acceptance can be met in a single phase of testing instead of two different phases.

 Keys to Successful User Acceptance Testing
Users and others on the project may question the need for defined test cases and test scripts, but when viewed in the light of project and business (or operational) risks, the time and resources spent in effective testing are resources well spent.
UAT plans can be reviewed by the UAT team, a Quality Assurance (QA) team or facilitator, the project manager, or any other people with knowledge of testing and the project.
UAT can be one of the most critical and risky types of test on a project, which means that a great deal of care should be taken when planning, executing and evaluating the results of UAT.

 Information Security Glossary - User Acceptance Testing - UAT
User Acceptance Testing is a critical phase of any 'systems' project and requires significant participation by the 'End Users'.
To be of real use, an Acceptance Test Plan should be developed in order to plan precisely, and in detail, the means by which 'Acceptance' will be achieved.
The User Acceptance Test Plan will vary from system to system but, in general, the testing should be planned in order to provide a realistic and adequate exposure of the system to all reasonably expected events.

 Acceptance testing: The customer is the ultimate judge
Acceptance criteria: Before you begin the acceptance test, the team should know what criteria will be used to decide whether the system is acceptable or not.
Acceptance testing completes the formal testing process and is the only test that is the responsibility of the customer.
After the acceptance test is finished, you should be ready to implement with a high level of confidence that the system will be relatively error-free and stable.

 Acceptance testing - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Acceptance testing is also performed on lots (mechanical parts) or batches (chemicals) of manufactured or produced items.
These test cases must each be accompanied by test case input data or a formal description of the operational activities (or both) to be performed—intended to thoroughly exercise the specific case—and a formal description of the expected results.
A principal purpose of acceptance testing is that, once completed successfully, and provided certain additional (contractually agreed) acceptance criteria are met, the sponsors will then sign off on the system as satisfying the contract (previously agreed between sponsor and manufacturer), and deliver final payment.

Their contracts often refer to testing in the form of mock elections or a public tabulation of votes on a "test database." These activities typically last for a day.
Another reason for a lack of user acceptance testing is that it typically occurs only at the end of the implementation project.

The ultimate goal of UAT is to validate that a system of products is of sufficient quality to be accepted by the users and, ultimately, the sponsors.
This Short Cut is unique in that it views UAT through the concept that the user should be represented in every step of the software delivery lifecycle--including requirements, designs, testing, and maintenance--so that the user community is prepared, and even eager, to accept the software once it is completed.
Giving the UAT team the tools they need to comprehend the process on their own saves the IT staff from having to explain test management from the beginning.
