Test plan, operator effect
The test plan should include procedures to minimise the operator effect, such as memorization of test target locations. In order to reduce memorization of test target locations a certain operator should preferably only cover a particular test lane once a day and not start the following day with the test lane processed as ultimate lane the day before.
