Purpose • BP tends to staff SAP projects with new resources each time − Purpose • BP tends to staff SAP projects with new resources each time − Once employees learn about systems testing, they move back to the business − If we use an experienced contract resource, they leave after the project ends • We are attempting to create a testing framework that can be used by any SAP test manager • We don’t think we know all the answers or angles − We are looking to benefit from your experience and knowledge − Tell us what is good in the approach − Tell us what won’t work − Tell us what can be improved 4

Today’s Approach • I will provide some context on the environment inside of BP Today’s Approach • I will provide some context on the environment inside of BP • I will describe the testing framework as proposed • I would then like to enter into a discussion around the proposal • Thus, I would like to limit questions during the initial part of the session to those for clarity or understanding, then really get into the bulk of the discussion towards the end 5

BP • BP is a multi-national Oil and Gas Super Major • It recent BP • BP is a multi-national Oil and Gas Super Major • It recent years, it has grown through mergers and acquisitions − Amoco − Arco − Veba/Aral − Castrol • This created a company with multiple legacy systems and over 114 accounting book of records • In 2004, BP re-organized to create the structure on the next slide • This re-organization provided the FC&A (Financial Controls and Accounting) function with the authority to declare SAP as the mandated ERP for accounting − FC&A then created the GFT, Global Financial Template − FC&A also created the MIF, Management Information Framework to report the GFT in a consistent format 6

Testing Framework – Vision • As you can see, there are many different large Testing Framework – Vision • As you can see, there are many different large scale SAP programmes in progress • Each programme has multiple releases to various countries set up as individual projects • Each project has an obvious need to do testing • By providing a common framework, we can − Incorporate the experience and best practices of FC&A − As well as insights gathered today − Incorporate, as much as possible, the experience and best practices of other areas in BP − Jumpstart the creation of any project with a robust testing approach − Execute robust testing in a common way across the projects − Provide a standard to evaluate the testing efficacy of an existing project to inform the Go/No Go decision 8

Testing Framework – Content • Applies to all systems testing associated with the project, Testing Framework – Content • Applies to all systems testing associated with the project, but concentrates on SAP − Technical testing − Unit/string − Stress/performance − Security − Operational Acceptance (back up/restore, DR, etc. ) 9

Testing Framework - Approach • Create and agree the “Table of Contents” of framework Testing Framework - Approach • Create and agree the “Table of Contents” of framework (see next slide) • Build out documents, templates, processes, procedures, etc. − Utilizing good pre-existing material whenever possible • Store the framework on a common Share. Point site that can be accessed by anyone in the corporation • Provide on-going support for the projects about the framework 11

Testing Framework – Proposed Table of Contents • Purpose • Generic testing theory − Testing Framework – Proposed Table of Contents • Purpose • Generic testing theory − Why test? − How much to test? • Testing models − V-model − W-model − Risk-based • Test phases − Phases and definitions − What each test phase attempts to answer − Appropriate entrance and exit criteria − Testing input to Go/No Go decision criteria 12

Testing Framework – Proposed Table of Contents – cont. • Test processes − Traceability Testing Framework – Proposed Table of Contents – cont. • Test processes − Traceability matrix − Test and defect tracking − Testing tools and automation − Quality assurance of the testing − CMMi aspects of testing • SAP testing nuances • Challenges of testing at BP 13

Discussion Questions • Has anyone else in the room done this? • What’s missing Discussion Questions • Has anyone else in the room done this? • What’s missing from the Framework? • What was your approach? • What were your challenges? • What worked for you? • What didn't work? • How did you get support from the business/projects to take on the Framework? • Did you go incrementally? Or try and implement the entire Framework from the start? • What was the feedback? • How is it evolving? 14
