It is divided into 2 parts:

  1. site administrator
  2. quality center

site administrator: has an administration role in which project managers, test managers and test leads can participate in and manage the domain, projects and users.

QC is divided into modules:

  • Releases: Enables the users to manage the testing process. They are defined as soon as software realization specification is available. We define a cycle in which a certain number of requirements are added.
  • Requirements: This includes area and functionality under test, defining the requirement topic & analyzing the requirements.
  • Test plan: Develops test cases and is analysed according to the requirements.
  • Test lab: Place where to test the application / software.
  • Defect tracking: This module is used for logging and tracking defects that are found during test execution. Here the tester can also define the status, whether the test is passed/failed and close.
  • Test resources.: resources which are associated with test cases.
  • Dashboards: Planning, number of test cases and execution of test cases are represented through graphs and reports.
