Hi all,

I think the way of finding Complete Processes might differ from the
case. If it is an ordered test one possible way could be: asking the
client if there are any Complete Processes and where. This is not
possible in comparative studies. Sometimes one can find Complete
Process when using the site search  for example searching for
"Registration" or something similar. Some types of websites typical
have Complete Processes (shoping  and booking sites, hotels,...).
Because of that it might be a good way to recommend different ways of
finding Processes. Probably we should collect use cases for the
Methodology, as it was suggested from Shadi some weeks ago. I think
this might be helpful for the scope but also for the question of
Complete Processes. Thoughts?

Best

Kerstin
