Eliminates requirements gaps early in the development process & make test design process more efficient

What is our primary use case?

Creating models for requirements definition and alignment, starting with high-level requirements definition and expanding models into detailed requirements to test models (manual testing). Also, creating models and analyzing and selecting appropriate test scope/coverage.

Pros and Cons

  • "In terms of meeting business challenges, it helped to shorten the dev/testing cycle by identifying requirements gaps early in the process, by having models shared within the development team. It helped increase test coverage and reduce the number of issues experienced by clients/customers."
  • "The ability to create models/diagrams at multiple levels (nest/embed them) helps in taking models from high-level business requirements and building them into detailed requirements models and test models. Plus, it helps reuse lower level models. It also allows maintaining models at appropriate levels, even for very complex systems/solutions."
  • "Integration with TDM, test data management tool, provides the ability to generate data or use identified (preset or parametrized) test data. It allows significant expansion of test coverage and flexibility, without creating new tests and needing to maintain them."
  • "Integration with automation is one of the reasons we started to consider moving to this tool from our original tool for implementing test modeling. ARD appears to have better integration with Selenium. It also has the ability to record scripts/flows using Selenium Builder and import them into ARD, which will then create and optimize a model based on that."
  • "Needs improvement in aligning models so they look clear and readable without having to move boxes around."
  • "It would help if it would save different subsets of test cases, use cases, etc., of a given diagram, for different purposes and provide an easy way to name those subsets."

What other advice do I have?

It is important to ensure that people first understand modeling concepts and the organization's defined modeling best practices before jumping into tool implementation. It is critical to get management support, as for some people test modeling is a very new way of thinking and they would find many reasons to push back. Check CA's videos on modeling available on CA's Youtube channel, before starting to implement the tool itself.
