Traceability for Planning and Executing Tests
Comprehensive system tests are a challenge for test management. objectiF RPM helps you master them. For all requirements in the release backlog objectiF RPM identifies all the test cases. After identification, objectiF RPM can generate test plans for the execution of the test cases. You can repeat this process for regression tests as often as necessary.
If a test is executed and fails, you can immediately derive bugs, describe them and, if applicable, specify an estimated workload for the fix. Once a bug is fixed, the associated tests are automatically set to “retest”. The test management workflow that makes this possible can be adapted at any time to your individual processes. The workflow ensures that testers and developers are always on the same page.
In addition, objectiF RPM maintains an automatic history and records the relationships between bugs, test cases and requirements.
With objectiF RPM, traceability and test management go hand in hand.
Monitoring Test Progress
How are the tests going? A glance at a dashboard in objectiF RPM gives you the answer – in real time. Which test cases are complete and how are the bug fixes going? Determine which KPIs you need and how they should be displayed in the dashboard. Choose from numerous diagrams and indicators to ensure that you’ll stay informed at all times.
Planning and Executing Reviews
A reviewer leaves a comment on a requirement and triggers a related event. Events and the resulting state changes control the review workflow
Getting people together at one time and place for reviews is difficult – especially in distributed organizations. In objectiF RPM you can involve multiple parties in the review process, regardless of where they are located. The reviewers just need a web browser and they’re good to go. You can review stakeholder goals, requirements, use cases, test cases, risks, documents and other artifacts.
This is how a review works with objectiF RPM:
- Set up a review by selecting reviewers and the deadline
- Reviewers are automatically notified about the upcoming review. The review also appears in their to-do lists.
- Reviewers can begin reviewing independently.
- Reviewers leave comments and signal approval or rejection by changing the review’s state. The remaining process is controlled by the review’s state.
The quality assurance manager can track the state of all current and planned reviews by using a real-time query
