Capturing and reporting this information usually drives the average QA engineer slightly mad (after all you only need to find one bug during the execution and all figures will be distorted). So yes there is a certain amount of ambiguity associated with tracking this. Having said that there is some merit to this. Not least it helps provide some idea on the resources needed for a particular project. If you can estimate the testing duration (and provide past evidence) it's far easier to argue the case for the right level of resources for future project. So it’s not...

Assignment of Test Cases with Quality Center

As part of our test management complexities series we're looking here at assignment of testcases within Quality Center. Assignment within QC typically works at the "testcase" level within the Plan and Lab areas. We can extend assignment to sets and steps but this requires custom field set up (which we look at in the video). In this video we first put this in context by looking at some of the key Quality Center concepts for planning and execution; the Plan where we define cases, with steps and group them into folders. and the Lab where we create sets which link to a number of cases from the plan area. With this concept we can then link the folders, that contain...
