Q. 51: Consider the following excerpt from the Test Items section of a test plan. During System Test execution, the configuration management team shall deliver test releases to the test team every Monday

morning by 9:00 a.m. Each test release shall include a test item transmittal report. The test item transmittal report will describe the results of the automated build and smoke test associated with the release. Upon receipt of the test release, if the smoke test was successful, the test manager will install it in the test lab. Testing will commence on Monday morning once the new weekly release is installed.

Should the test team not receive a test release, or if the smoke test results are negative, or if the release will not install, or should the release arrive without a transmittal report, the test manager shall immediately contact the configuration management team manager. If the problem is not resolved within one hour, the test manager shall notify the project manager and continue testing against the previous week's release, if possible. If the test release fails installation, addition-ally the test analyst who attempted the installation shall file an incident report.

Assume that you are working as the test manager on this project. Suppose that you have received two working, installable, testable releases so far. On Monday of the third week, you do not receive the test release.

Consider the following possible actions:

I. Notifying the configuration management team manager
II. Notifying the project manager
III. Filing an incident report
