Test Suites - 4.0

renee nelson (781918) | asked Jan 30 '13, 8:53 a.m.

My manager has tasked me to find a way to create a "Suite of Suites". He wants a suite with branches of other suites that will have test cases in various areas (functional, regression, smoke, production) in each of these separate branches (suites under the main suite).
I have been researching and have not found if this functionality exists in RQM.

We are testing out RQM 4.0. (We are currently on 3.0.1)

What is the purpose of using a suite instead of a test plan?

He wants to group all the test plans under one bucket, for example, system testing, end to end testing, uat, regression, and production verification. Would a plan be better than using a suite?

 Test Suite is a grouping of Test cases that need to be executed together. So Test Suite will be a good representation for the examples you have given such as system testing, end to end testing, uat etc. But why do you want to create a super-set of these suites as you should be executing only one of these Suites at a time. Why should you do System Testing and UAT at the same time. Instead of creating a Suite of Suites, all your Suites must be grouped under a Test Plan which is a logical grouping of Test Suites and/or Test Cases.
