Job Purpose & Responsibilities

Assignment
The ERP system within SABIC is SAP ECC. During a year, many changes, updates or improvements are developed. It is essential to test changes before release to the live environment. By performing tests, teams validate that what has changed does not have any negative impact and that the changes are build according to the agreed requirements. Testing can be extensive or for a small part of SAP, depending on the impact of the implemented change. In order to facilitate this testing properly and efficiently, the users create test scripts. Storage of these test scripts takes place in a test catalogue.

We would like you to review the current test scripts, suggest updates and improvements, creating the set-up for specific sections and perform updates accordingly.

Goal
1) Review the current test catalogue test scripts together with teams (update if required, at least all core processes need to have an up to date test script)
2) Improve the test catalogue structure in which the test scripts are stored (translate test catalogue in similar structure in excel)
3) Test catalogue needs to be based on separate building blocks, so pending on change a dedicated test catalogue can be generated
4) Create a list of standard pre-work activities, e.g. data required in the test environment (customer details, material details, inventory etc)

Requirements

This assignment will require process related thinking, communication skills, active listening skills and conceptual thinking capabilities.

Introduction of Project: ASAP 2019
Expected duration of Project: 18 weeks
