Requirement Module in Quality Center

The Requirement module is used to store all the requirements related to a testing project.

  • IT can describe in details what needs to be tested in your application and provide the test team with the foundation on which the entire testing process is based
  • Requirements are specified in the Quality Center by creating a requirements tree
  • A Requirements tree is a graphical representation of requirements specifications
  • Requirement specifications can be grouped, sorted and monitored in the requirements pane
  • Requirements can also be linked to Tests created in a Test Plan Module and Defects in a defect module
  • Later, after logging defects, you can also link the requirements to defects
  • In this way we can keep track of your testing needs at all stages of the testing process
  • If the testing requirement changes we can immediately identify which tests and defects are affected, and who is responsible for them
