The four phases of testing management process in Test Director - Part I

TestDirector offers an organized framework for testing applications before
they are deployed. While using TestDirector, the testing management process can be defined using the following four steps :

- Specifying the test requirements.
- Planning the tests.
- Run the tests in manual or automatic mode.
- To analyze the defects.

Specifying the test requirements

Testing process is started by specifying the testing requirements in TestDirector’s Requirements module. It provides the test team with the foundation on which the entire testing process is based. A requirement tree is created to define the requirements. This is a graphical representation of your requirements specification,
displaying your requirements hierarchically. After you create tests in the Test Plan module, you can link requirements to tests. A track of your testing needs at all stages of the testing process can be kept. It includes defining, viewing, modifying and converting requirements.

Planning the tests

Testing goals can be determined after the requirements are defined. After this a test plan tree is built to divide the application into testing units or subjects. Tests are defined for each subject. Actions are specified for each test step that are performed on application. Links can be added to keep track of the relationship between your tests and your requirements. After you design your tests, you can decide which tests to automate and after that a test script can be generated. It includes developing a test plan tree, designing test steps, copying test steps, calling tests with parameters, creating and viewing requirements coverage and generating automated test scripts.
