Quality Center offers software quality assurance. including requirements management,test management and business process testing for IT and application environments. It is based on Client Server technology which is based on following modules/tabs:
- Test Plan
- Test Lab
- Defects for management of testing processes
There can be additional modules as well depending on the various Add-ins installed like BPT (Business Process Testing) etc.
Releases: This module helps to manage releases and cycles (iterations) more effectively. User can easily plan and track application release progress using this module.
Requirements: This module is used for Requirement Management and Requirements Traceability of various Test cases stored in the QC Repository.
Test Plan: This tab is used for creating or updating different Test Cases. The Test Cases are contained in different folders which are displayed in a tree like structure. It can store both Manual as well as automated test cases. Manual Test Cases can be written locally or imported from Excel Sheets.
With each ‘Test Step’ having Expected Result and Actual Result section. QC supports automated script developed for different Automation Tools like QTP, Load Runner, and Win Runner etc. These scripts can be saved directly from the Tool into the Test Plan tab of QC. However, prior to this, appropriate QC Add-in needs to be installed to support an Automation Tool.
Test Lab: This tab is for execution of the test cases stored in the Test Plan module which can be imported locally to the Test Lab screen and Run. When Manual Test case is executed, it opens up a pop up listing all the Test Steps and the user is supposed to update status of each step with Passed, Failed or Not Complete. When automated test case is run, QC invokes the Automation Tool which in turn executes the script and stores back the result into QC repository and displays on the UI.
Defects: All the defects are logged in this tab of Quality Center. These defects can be mapped to the corresponding test cases which failed and hence to the Requirements tab.
