Test Management Automation: Lessons Learned from a Process Improvement
Test management aims at organizing, documenting and executing test cases,
and at generating execution reports. The adoption of a support tool for
such activities is expected to improve the current practice. ITALO is a
European project devoted to the evaluation of the benefits coming from test
In this paper the experiences collected and the lessons learned during
ITALO are summarized. An experiment was designed to measure the effects
that are produced by the new test process complemented with
the introduction of the support tool. Pilot projects were conducted to
measure the benefits obtained from tool usage and process modification.
