JD Edwards Test Planning & Management

At DWS, we believe there is a smarter way to test; one that starts with pinpointing and testing only those objects that are affected by a change event (such as an upgrade or an ESU). For an extensively modified footprint this may not seem easy to do. However, if you could, it would significantly reduce the time and effort required for test planning and execution. Allowing you to focus your efforts and only test what needs to be tested.

Dimension Focus™ is the first product available to JD Edwards customers that will analyze your entire EnterpriseOne system to identify exactly which objects are impacted by the new release and how significantly they are affected. This intelligence is then used to inform your test planning and management, so you only test what needs testing.

Now you can get even greater value from your existing testing product or service provider. Using Dimension Focus™ you can minimize the effort involved in preparing your test scripts and the charges payable to your test service provider as you can now identify what does NOT need to be tested. Some benchmarks have indicated you could save up to 85% on your testing effort and costs by using Dimension Focus™.

ESU Impact Analysis

Dimension Focus™ is a software application that analyses the ESU (Electronic Software Update) code changes down to the event and function level. We use our bespoke dependencies logic to find the top level standard and custom objects that the ESUs affect.

Unique Features

Dimension Focus™ builds on DWS’ spirit of innovation that led DWS to create its unique Dimension Analyze™. Dimension Focus™ takes impact analysis to new levels of insight.

  • It analyses the impact on standard, copies and custom objects.
  • It grades the impact for each object by analysing the dependencies at the event level and figures out the scale of the impact that applying the ESUs has had on each top level object.
  • It creates a testing “heat map” to show the level at which the applications are affected, and those that the customer needs to spend the most amount of effort testing.
  • It enables you, the customer, to plan to which applications you need to give the maximum amount of testing time and, perhaps more importantly, those applications that are not affected so only require a minimal amount of testing.
