The success of testing
will depend on the quality of the planning made before creating the test cases.
From the test planning stage onwards, the Test Organiser will provide a tool to
structure, organise, manage and monitor the test
Tests are managed and documented in Test
Plans and Test Packages. A Test Plan will be a view of a Test
Catalogue, created for a specific test phase. The Test Plan is further
defined per tester via Test Packages, where the result of each test
including status and a possible reference to an internal or external
problem number can be logged. Online views of the progress of individual
test plans or test packages are provided, with percentages of tests OK,
Untested, in Error, etc...
From release 4.5A, the
storage and management of Test Catalogues, Test Plans and Test Packages
has changed. Test Catalogues created in previous releases can be
migrated into the new store. Important customizing will be necessary to
set up the new Test Workbench. New Test Catalogues must be included into
the SAP application hierarchy to be able to use it.
Organiser functions in release 4.6C

list. The user can define his own worklist format, showing and hiding
fields in the list.
