2.12 Installation or Production Testing

Installation or Production Testing verifies whether the installed system performs as expected in the actual user’s environment (if acceptance or pilot testing was not performed at the user location). This is the final check-out of the system prior to retiring the existing system (if one exists), and/or turning responsibility for the system over to the user organization or Maintenance and Operations (M&O) staff. The system is used for processing actual business using "live" data and the new/modified business processes.
