A global medical technology company selected VIP Apps Consulting to lead an end-to-end lease accounting system compliance project and the integration with the existing Oracle ERP system.
For the testing phases, VIP Apps Consulting teamed with TechnoSolutions and their TopTeam solution to:
–enhance the ability to log and track functional requirements, and
-provide professional-quality reporting of the test phase progress; requirements test coverage, defect management and overall results.
An Agile Solution for Requirements Definition and Management
The VIP Apps Consulting team configured a ‘blueprint’ project template structure in TopTeam which allows us to adopt and apply a standardised set of objectives and milestones quickly. This template was used for the new project, and project requirements from source project documents were uploaded easily. The workshops, where the requirements were defined, were also stored in the TopTeam notes folder, allowing all users the benefit of the ability to access a single source for requirement details without needing to access multiple versions of offline project documents.
Test management definition was broken into setups for the Configurations, which on this project were the individual test scenarios, and these were uploaded easily using the Wizard to provide the basis for the Test Cases. Test cases defined the functional tests broken into logical steps the test team could easily follow, and each of the cases referenced the source requirement to provide easy traceability reporting. Using the test configurations and test cases allowed quick setup of Test Sets which defined each ‘test run’, which can usually be a time-consuming manual exercise, but TopTeam enabled these to be created easily. The process of then running the tests was then easy for both the testers to follow as a simple ‘run’ and also record actual results, including adding attachments for test file outputs, screenshots, plus fast, intuitive functionality for logging of defects where required.
TopTeam has many useful in-built reports available which are easily customised to suit the specific projects’ needs, easy to adapt both the screen layouts and reports for inclusion/exclusion of fields which were important for this project. Test report outputs were able to be quickly generated for test progress updates which were circulated before each update meeting. The report outputs were of a professional-looking standard and did not require any further formatting or manual tailoring, another useful time-saver. These reports were passed to the client who commented they were very impressed with the quality of the format and detail provided and as such they could store these as part their project compliance repository.
Overall, TopTeam enhanced the ability to quickly set up and apply VIP Apps Consulting standardised DELIVER methodology to the project delivery. Easily provide the client with all of our project deliverables, internally track and manage our tasks, and it also assisted the client test team who were not familiar with the application, which also saved time and improved testing consistency and quality.
