Develop project patterns for project planning

Project patterns are a powerful instrument for planning and carrying out your projects. Patterns make project work easier for project leaders, requirements engineers, developers and testers, because the use of a pattern takes away many routine steps. These are not necessarily the patterns you find on objectiF RPM after the installation. If you have an idea how you or your project team could make life easier, then just create a pattern yourself and just put it into the pattern catalog.

Create your own project patterns easily

Easily? Yes, it actually is easy to create your own project patterns. I would like to show you the evidence. I will show you a short video with sound that describes how a project pattern is created that fulfils the following purpose: with the pattern you can create test cases and test activities for an existing requirement.  Details of why it’s useful is explained in the film Use your project pattern , but there is still something to do: every generated test case still has to be specified. That is a form-based process. Here you can see the form.

The requirement that is generated for the test case is referenced in the form – the project pattern takes care of that. The pattern that resukts here belongs to the expansion patterns. It adds a new element to an existing element complete with relationships.

There are more pattern types with which you can refine elements by replacing placeholders and simplify the work of all roles involved. If you have questions about creating and using patterns, we will be very glad to hear from you!
