Skit: Child Stories and Test Cases

Watch this skit to learn about child stories and test cases.
So now that we have come up with an epic story and thought through it with a storyboard, maybe we should come up with some child stories. » That’s a great idea, I will go ahead and write » Okay, so maybe the first one we should do is when the technician has diagnosed that they need a part and they know the part number. » Okay » So may something like, I know the part number and I want to find it in the system, so I can figure out the next steps in the repair. Okay, so I know the part number and what was it? » I want to find it in the system.
I want to find it in the system. » So I can figure out the next steps.
Okay, let’s get some test cases for that. Maybe we need to make sure they search for the part number? » Yeah, that sounds right. » Okay, so, make sure he is able to search for that part number.
Maybe we need something to avoid errors. » Maybe make sure the descriptive info appears in the search. » Okay, make sure descriptive info about the part.
Perfect, so maybe the next child story we could do is on when the technician knows he needs a part, but doesn’t know the part number. » Okay. » So maybe something like, I don’t know the part number and I need to search for it online so that I can move forward. » I don’t know the part number.
And I want to search for it online.
Okay. » Perfect. So then maybe we can move on to the next one where the technician takes a picture of the part and sends it to a colleague. » Okay.
