Are you talking about a requirements traceability matrix? Or some other matrix?

Please define what you mean by "the matrix".

Also, you might want to try the search facility here and look up "traceability". You will be busy for a couple of hours with the results from the search.

You might be trying to put too much into a single matrix. I use the excel rule - if I can't fit it in two dimensions, break it into another table.

The A stuff is good, with the exception of test cases. Here's the reasoning why. You can have mutliple test cases testing a single requirement or a single requirement tested in multiple test cases. It is not always a one-to-one relationship. Therefore, I usually have a table with the requirements along one axis and the test cases along another, and a lot of x's for the intersections.

Same way with your items from column B.

Design spec and test spec is what your company defines them to be. For me, design spec is when they take a detailed requirement and lay out a document saying how it will be implemented in design. Test spec is how that requirement will be tested - I use them as precursors to the actual test cases. Sometimes they are called "test conditions" or "test points".

Thanks Darrel, Thats pretty much right.I need to split the tables as there is a many to many relation between requirements and test case.

Thanks.

Hai thums,
I want to share my Traceability Matrix.
In functional Spec,the requirements are given numbers(Requirement ID) beside them.For these IDs we have to prepare Test Cases with a Test Case Id assigned.I mean to say that we have to map the requirements with the Test Cases that are written.
The other supporting documents will be the others that are mentioned by Darrel.

Functional requirements and Non functinal requirements, you can find in your application SRS- Software Requirements Specification document.

Leonardo - what you did is called hijacking the thread. You have a bad habit of doing this. Your post really has nothing to do with test case templates. If you have a new question, you should post a new topic. I have noticed that you have posted the same question on multiple forums. That is called cross posting and is also frowned upon. I strongly suggest that you read the rules of the forum and comply with them.

To answer your question, I see a number of issues.
1. You are a tester, but you are being asked to produce functional and nonfunctional requirements? That is not normally a tester function. It normally belongs with a BA. As a tester, you should already have these provided to you in the requirements and specifications documents.
2. If you are really being asked to come up with the requirements, that is an entirely different discipline with its own learning curve, every bit as complicated and in-depth as learning how to be a good tester. Looking for help on a web site will not really do what you want it to do.
3. Eliciting requirements will require in-depth knowledge of the application. Therefore, no one here will be able to help you with specific requirements.

I think this was meant to be:

You can have multiple test cases testing a single requirement or multiple requirements tested in a single test case.

hello

The requierment is related and associated to business process.
To insure this unitary business point you had to insure one or multiple use case.
A signifiant scenario which include in a good order those use case will validate your requierment (for example a working example scenario).

In resume requierment is the business view and use case plan is the effective fonctionaly whose had to be insure on you operational process.

Best regards

Hello,
We have functionality names.We write test cases for those functionalities with ids.We can have the functionality name & Test case ids in the traceability matrix


Regards,
Vimala
