Requirements Based Testing
True Requirements-Based Testing (RBT) Improves Software Quality
Industry research shows that the root cause of 56 percent of all errors identified in projects are introduced in the requirements phase. As a result, many organizations are looking to reduce their risk by implementing formal requirements management practices. The adoption of a formalized requirements management discipline can be leveraged by the quality assurance organization by implementing a requirements-based testing methodology that ensures comprehensive test coverage. Requirements-based testing can increase efficiency, reduce the risk of failure, and improve overall software quality.
Complete traceability between requirements, test cases, defects and related development activities provides teams with improved upstream and downstream information to help ensure complete test coverage. Know when requirements change and assess the impact in real time.
PTC Integrity is a unified platform for application lifecycle management and can help your QA team implement a requirements-based testing process and provide insight into what to test, ensure comprehensive test planning and test execution coverage, establish traceability between requirements, test cases and code, manage the resolution of defects found during testing, and enable measurement of project readiness through reports and dashboards.
