    Testplan software

    Hi,

    we need a method of writing our testplans so that the testplan could be held in a central location and be accessed by and written to by the QA staff concurrently?

    Anybody got any recommendations for this?

    Re: Testplan software

    Can anyone give me the name of a good QA book which references how to create Test Plans (as well as all other QA processes)?

    Thanks.

    Re: Testplan software

    Dave,
    Does you company have anything like a central repository such as Plumtree or Peoplesoft? That is how we manage documents. We use to have a central shared folder on a global server to perform this function, but it did not have the check-out, check-in capabilities. What about something like TestDirector or a CM tool?

    Re: Testplan software

    Dave,
    Just Curious...What is in your test plan ? (is it a test plan or a test case document)
    Why do folks need to update it concurrently ? I thought a single person (or maybe two) is responsible to update the plan.

    Re: Testplan software

    Microsoft Office 2003 Products offer shared work spaces which I understand allow concurrent updating.

    However I tend to agree with qasleuth - a Test Plan - at least as I know it - would be a single person job.

    I view a test plan as a respository of information, not a document. It should be continually updated, even during testing, to ensure that it is relevant. This should however be done in a structured manner with the right people updating the relevant information.

    The most effective way to do this is to move away from using MS word and the like ( or spread sheets) and adopt products like Test Director.
