PQ: When should this be performed


Can someone give me guidance on this, I am currently validating a HP migration tool that is being used to transfer operating systems and data from an old server to a new server.

I am going through the entire documentation suite to fully validate but do I need to perform a PQ in order to do this

Best Regards


As fare as there are no user requirements, its hard to define test specifications for a PQ.
The PQ is supposed to give the evidence that the user exactly got what he wanted. I assume that the system you want to validate is a cots software. Means you have no reuqirements specified. Therefore a OQ for testing the relevant functions should be good enough.

Thank you GTF that makes sense,

We have actually gone ahead and developed OQ testing for this project which was deemed adequate for the application being used.
