    Silk Plan Plus

    I am leading a team for my company that will be evaluating different test management tools for our organization.

    I would like some feed back as to the strengths as weaknesses of Silk Plan Plus. Also any tips of questions to ask specific to this vendor's tool would be appreciated.

    SilkPlan(T-Plan) is a good test planning tool and it offers some flexibility in the way that you can organize things. As far as needing to have things formatted a certain way when importing things goes....SilkPlan does let you import things using other formates, but the template that the tool ships with only supports one format. With the limitless ways that one could format a script, it can't know everything.

    But don't worry.

    The import method is actually a VBA script that can be modified (or you can write your own) to support any strange format that you can think up. Because you can use VBA to communicate with the SilkPlan database, it is extremely flexible.

    If you don't know VBA, consider getting some consulting help to write you an import script that supports the format you have.

    Re: Silk Plan Plus

    We have already developed the RFI and the requirements for the tool we will purchase.

    What I am looking for are specific features that work well or do not work well with this tool.

    I am also looking for little catches that salesguys like to hide. For instance perhaps the tool claims to be able to import scripts from excel but in actuality you have to format the scripts in a certian way prior to importing.

    The main focus is a tool that will help us organize our manual test scripts and track defects. Eventually we would like to begin automating some testing and so we do want that capability it is not a main focus at this time.
