Test Case Manegment Dream Features
I want to know, "What are you dream features for test management?"
I did a short write up of some of mine here (with an a brief of how I imagine they can work):
Engineering Quality: My 3 Test Management Dream Features
In sort: Risk based scoring ( in dollars ), automatic test pioritization, and ability to auto suggest test cases.
What are yours?
Process - Least variance
Tools - Maximum ROI
Focus - Prioritization based on the quality attribute
Communication - Should be more measurable and comprehensible ( loosely ITIL in any problem solving).
Capacity plan - Must be optimal usage of resources
Motivation - Provide quality work based on the area of interest to resources.
Innovation - A pat project, completely out of box to get ready for future.
Back-up creation - Swapping tasks of resources for creating a optimal back-up in rainy days.
If processes are predictable than estimation and corrective action are pre-define.
Like in six-sigma , focus was not to achieve 4th sigma and onward , but to remove the organic variance from the process by identifying the factors causing the issues.
If we keep resolving the variance bit by bit then we will be more predictable , and luckily, less error prone
I guess I have no idea what that means as far as Test Case Management features
Any process involving management, ceation, reuse, update, share and control should be more mature and predictable.
So process variance is not specific for test case task but for all aspect of process involve in using, maintaining and modifyingo test artifacts w.r.t test management
So if the question is "What are your dream features for test management?", you would say "least variance" would be a dream feature. Sorry, I just don't understand that.
No matter. I don't need to understand if dlai does.
I get the impression all those are some sort of efficiency measures. But I have no idea beyond that. I'm not familiar with six-sigma process/terminology.
we all have our own organizations types, workflows with different needs. I'm curious, how do you roughly calculate those numbers and what sort of perspective would those numbers bring that helps you with your test planning?
