  • 1. IBM Rational DOORS – HP Quality Center Integration
  • 2. Integrating the project team
  • 3. Requirements-driven testing
    Test Status
    Test Design
    Test Execution
    Quality is conformance to requirements
    Requirements Management
    Requirements Management
    Rational DOORS
    Test Status
    Test Planning
    HP Quality Center
    Basing tests onrequirements can help ensure that deliverables meet customer expectations
    Test Design
    Test Execution
    Process automation and increased focusThe test team is working against the right set of requirements
  • 4. Potential benefits of requirements-driven testing
    Providing a requirements-based integration between Rational® DOORS® and HP Quality Center can help enable:
    The requirements analyst to focus on delivering testable requirements with clearly defined qualification criteria
    The quality assurance (QA)/tester to focus on developing tests against a known set of requirements
    The performance of release management based on requirements/quality measures rather than on statistics of test pass/failure
  • 5. Rational DOORS – Quality Center integration overview
    Role-based, helping to bring functionality and data to users’ preferred tools
    Both Rational DOORS users and HP Quality Center users
  • 6. Role: analyst
    The analyst is a Rational DOORS user principally interested in requirements management
    Specifies the qualification criteria that must be met by testing
    Needs to know that requirements are tested
    Performs impact analysis to cover requirements and test
    Wants to be involved with release review boards
  • 7. Role: QA/tester
    The QA/tester is a Quality Center user principally interested in test management and execution
    Uses the qualification criteria as test requirements
    Needs to be involved with requirements review
    Establishes traceability to requirements
    Investigates test failures
    HP Quality Center
  • 8. Role: manager (system review board)
    System review board (SRB)
    Analyzes impact of defects (priority, severity)
    Has the final say regarding release decision
    Test managers
    Influence the SRB through confidence that they have an efficient test process that is based on the requirements
    Development managers
    Influence the SRB based on comparing the latest test information against their development efforts
    Analyst managers
    Influence the SRB with the full business impact of making a release based on whether requirements have been met or not
  • 9. Role: integration administrator
    The integration administrator is interested in automating as much of a project lifecycle as possible
    Restricted to a limited number of people
    Understands more about the integration than “standard” users
    Interested in making sure that users are controlled
    Wants to make sure that the integration runs smoothly with minimal adverse business impact
  • 10. But what does it do?
  • 11. Facilities within HP Quality Center
    See Rational DOORS data inside the requirements tab in Quality Center
    Test against requirements rather than simply against what is built
  • 12. Facilities within Quality Center (continued)
    Map Rational DOORS data into other parts of Quality Center, such as the test design
    Modify Rational DOORS data to aid communication
    Limited to user-defined attributes
  • 13. What happens next?
    Qualification criteria can be reviewed, and comments can be entered into Quality Center
    Existing functionality within Quality Center
    Automatic generation of template test information from the qualification criteria
    Control over requirements changes through traceability alerts
    Similar to Rational DOORS suspect links
    Test execution helps raise defects that are indirectly associated with requirements
  • 14. Facilities within Rational DOORS
    Manually instigate transfer of information between Rational DOORS and Quality Center
  • 15. Facilities within Rational DOORS (continued)
    Associations created within Quality Center seen as Rational DOORS links
    Use standard Rational DOORS facilities to review tests
    Suspect links to help ensure that requirements changes are not missed
  • 16. Facilities within Rational DOORS (continued)
    Quality Center information seen as Rational DOORS modules
    Requirements, tests, defects, etc.
    Full impact analysis, including test data
    “Statement of quality” (SoQ) alongside requirements
    Three levels of detail: Boolean, defect list, full test summary
    Defect monitoring against requirements
    Business criticality set by analyst for prioritization
    Traverse into Quality Center if required
  • 17. Statement of quality attributes
  • 18. Roll-up results
  • 19. Roll-up results (continued)
  • 20. Detailed analysis
    Analyst now has detailed information to help identify what needs to be fixed
  • 21. Synchronize SoQ attributes
  • 22. Facilities available to the integration administrator
    Data-set definition
    Defines how much information should be visible when seeing the same information in Rational DOORS and HP TestDirector for Quality Center
    Attribute mapping
    Configures how Rational DOORS information is seen in Quality Center
    Configures how Quality Center information is seen in Rational DOORS
    Client installation for remote administration
    Individual named-user authentication to help improve security
  • 23. Synchronization controls
    Configure synchronization
  • 24. So what?
  • 25. Potential analyst benefits
    Better visibility of test plan can potentially lead to improved system quality
    Review construction of the audit trail to help verify that requirements have been planned to be tested
    Monitor test status against requirements to help identify business impact
    Role-based integration within Rational DOORS
    Traceability columns on requirements and test
    Reporting facilities
    Suspect links
  • 26. Potential QA/tester benefits
    Work against a defined set of requirements
    Help improve system quality while controlling an efficient test process
    How much testing is enough?
    More efficient test “autopsy”
    Is a defect in the test, implementation or requirement?
    Traverse audit trails back to original requirements analysis
    Role-based integration
    Combined reports from within Quality Center
    Traceability alerts help avoid loss of requirements changes
  • 27. Potential manager benefits
    Quality assurance statistics alongside requirements can help ensure that:
    Business criticality can be understood and traced back to user need
    Overall development process is prioritized commercially rather than technically
    Statistics aggregated up through the requirements hierarchy
    Faster identification of overall system quality
    Easier to communicate quality assurance to the end customer
  • 28. Potential overall benefits
    More cohesive organizations, smaller learning curves
    Can see information from other disciplines without having to move outside a preferred working environment
    Support for improved system quality
    Providing a connection between the analysts and the testers can improve likelihood that clear acceptance objectives will be both defined and met
