Abstract In Pakistan, Testing and implementation of ERP software projects facing product and project risks due to its initial stages. All these risks whether related to project or product must be tackled before these risks became the threat for software success. Better evaluation of ERP software required road map for Planning, identifying risks and testing activities. In this research paper a Progressive testing technique followed by spiral process model was introduced to develop ERP software. The spiral process model identified different ERP software risks and progressive testing technique tackled with these risks. This Progressive testing technique involved (TDD),(ATDD),(TFD),(TLD),(BDD),Pair Programming and gray box testing. Resultantly a Revolutionized Spiral Software model RSSM was developed with better testing solutions for the successful development of ERP software in Pakistan. To get a larger nationwide view on the RSSM (across Pakistan), a survey was conducted through a questionnaire and the results were analyzed to show whether the provided solution meets the organization goals.
