User Guide: Test Case Management User Guide
The Test Case Management (TCM) application helps your quality assurance team to manage their tests and test runs. Using Serena Business Manager, you can monitor your test cases as they move through the workflow, allowing you to report on the status of your tests.
The TCM application consists of two applications, the TCM Test Library application and the TCM Test Run application. The TCM Test Library application manages all of your tests and test cases which will be used by your QA department. This workflow allows you to tell which tests have been reviewed and are ready for use by your testers. It allows you to revise or remove older tests, noting where the test is no longer valid.
The TCM Test Run application manages the actual battery of tests that are run. For each test run, you can select a multiple tests from your test library to use with this test run. The test run set includes the details about the environment, server, and other details of what the test run is running against. The QA Tester manages the test run and chooses when to execute the tests. Subtasks are created to track each of these tests are they are run. When these tests have been completed and moved to the inactive state, the parent test run task moves to the completed state, signifying that all tests have been completed.
QA Managers can keep up-to-date on the current status of the testing through the reports provided with the Test Case Management application. These reports show where the different tests are in the life cycle and which ones have passed and failed. This allows managers to gather important information such as product quality and time to run each test.
