Setting up requirement-driven traceability
Our client is an international electronics group and industry leader that shapes the future of communications, information, and security. Over time, the company has grown into a respectable worldwide organization. Their products range from electronic goods for industry, infrastructure operators, and government customers. They operate in numerous countries all over the world and they count over 12 000 employees.
The client reached out to us in early 2021 and asked for help on a project needing requirement-driven traceability tracking. Their requirements were already managed through the IBM ALM solution, so it was natural to utilize another component of the solution for test/quality management.
The entire project was based on IBM Engineering Test Management (formerly known as Rational Quality Manager or RQM), a part of the Engineering Lifecycle Management end-to-end platform. That platform covers all major product areas and software engineering (requirements management, development management, quality management). It also enables full transparency and traceability. The image below shows the activities and tools of the continuous engineering lifecycle.
Discovering the capabilities of the solution was the first step in creating the customized configuration for the successful support of the client’s project. The focus of this phase is on setting up the process configuration of the entire ETM project through workshop presentations. Setting up high-level artifacts (test plans, test cases, test suites) in accordance with relevant requirements (DNG) is an integral part of test planning.
Throughout the entire project, a special emphasis has been put on reporting. Setting up dashboards with widgets showing different granular views, generating and exporting customized artifact list views and JRS reports offer a traceability insight fit for both business and technical stakeholders of the client’s project.
