You cannot add new execution states in RQM ... you have to use one of the 12 built-in ones.

But you can:
- Indicate in the project area which of the 12 you want used in the project area
- Modify the name of any of the built-in execution states.

This means that effectively you can have up to 12 execution states, which you can name anything you want.
But note that the system uses certain execution states for built-in semantics (such as when you cancel a test run), so you want to name those states something that is appropriate for those built-in semantics.

If you need more than 12 execution states in a given project area, you can define a custom category on the Test Result artifact.   You could then use the built-in execution state as a "state group name", and then use that custom category to contain the more detailed state information you wanted to be able to report on.
