Role of BA in Dev and Test phase
•   Assist on requirements clarification to various stakeholders till the business solution arrives
•   It may be user stories, use case diagram, class diagram, activity diagram, ERD
•   Assist on preparing test cases to testers or test managers in some organization BA prepares test cases as well.
•   Close collaboration between the business analyst and business is very important as is continuing that communication and collaboration through the development and testing phases.
•   Finding experienced and knowledgeable business people (experts or group of experts) to work with and learn is important.

A Business Analyst has two main tasks during Development and Testing:
a) Clarifies queries of the developers and testers during their work.
b) Maintains Required Traceability Matrix to cross check the developers and testers if they are covering all the requirements and their statuses.
