Test Case Management Tool:

Test management refers to the activity of managing a testing process. The test management process is a set of activities from the start of the testing to the end of the testing.

Below are few advantages of using the Test Case Management Tool:

  • It gives discipline to testing. When we follow a test process it gives us the plan at the initial. 
  • The test process allows the team to plan and control the testing throughout the project cycle. 
  • It helps in tracking and monitoring the testing process throughout the project. 
  • Provides transparent testing among stakeholders and maintains the conducted test for future reference. 
  • Gives a deep level of detail of the testing that’s being carried out. 
  • Gives a clear understanding of testing activities pre and post-project to all the team members. 
  • The test process can be defined and practiced differently according to the necessity in the test.
