Test Management Overview
Definition ‡ ´Manage and measure the application delivery process from a quality perspectiveµ Process
‡ Validate application functions against the functional specification, i.e., functions yield the expected results? ‡ Report and track defects ‡ Measure test coverage and track application quality


‡ Use of Test Management Tool tools reduces the reporting time as well as the cost. Test Scenarios.What is Test Management Tool ‡ Test Management Tool is a repository. Test Cases and Defects. ‡ It is meant for storing Requirements. 5 .

‡ The tool captures all the information entered by the users and gives the report to the management instantaneously. ‡ Sends mail or trigger an alert based on the type of data captured by the end user. ‡ Customizable to the need of the organization ‡ Process compliance 6 .Why Test Management Tool ‡ Avoid the errors that human make when they compile reports received from various people.

Benefits of Test Management Tool ‡ More consistent ‡ Reliable in compilation of reports ‡ All the reports are instantaneous and hence the status of delivery is clearly visible to management. ‡ Security ‡ Traceability Matrix ‡ Managing Change Request 7 .

Caution ‡ Needs discipline in entry otherwise the report will go havoc. ‡ The tool maintains history and hence one cannot cook-up data ² hence more compliance is required 8 .

What are the different tools available in the market (for functional testing) ‡ ‡ ‡ ‡ ‡ Rational Clear Quest Rational Test Manager Silk Central HP Quality Center Open Source Tools ² Bugzila. 9 . Jira etc.

± Select the Module to which the import to take place (Requirements or Tests or Defects) ± Select Temporary Map file (if you want edit latter you can save the file with map name) 26 .Export From XLS Contd.

± Select the fields from the list and use ³>´ and map to Excel column name 27 .Export From XLS Contd.

± Same way we can do for defects or Test Case 28 .Export From XLS Contd. ± Click on finish ± Go to QC and we can see the Requirements got added.

Export From Word ‡ Install the Word Add in provided by the QC ‡ Open the word doc file ‡ Tool bar has got added to the word open document ‡ Under Tools. Quality Center Link has got introduced. 29 .
