Following is the scenario that I would like to add in RQM v3.0

For Example:
=========

The initial set (Say SET) contains a set of say 10 Testcases . Execution of this set results the following:

3 Testcases PASS
2 Testcases Fail
3 Testcases BLOCKED
3 Testcases NOT AVAILABLE

Within this set, I want to create a subset (say SUB-1) which is made to execute the Testcases excluding the Testcases which are passed during the first run.

ie; With reference to above example, the following Testcases are made to run within the subset. (3 Testcases which are passed will not be a part of the subset as it was executed successfully in the first run)

2 Testcases Fail
3 Testcases BLOCKED
3 Testcases NOT AVAILABLE

Lets say that the Execution of this subset (SUB-1) results in the following:


1 Testcases Fail
3 Testcases BLOCKED
1 Testcases NOT AVAILABLE (2 Testcases = NOT BLOCKED are now passed)


I again created another subset (SUB-2) within the subset (SUB-1) and add the Testcases (excluding the passed Testcases) which were made to run in SUB-1


1 Testcases Fail
3 Testcases BLOCKED
1 Testcases NOT AVAILABLE


Executing the SUB-2 results in some testcases to be passed. Say;

0 Testcases Fail
1 Testcases BLOCKED
1 Testcases NOT AVAILABLE


So, I created another subset say SUB-3 and include the following testcases which were not executed succesfully under SUB-2

1 Testcases BLOCKED
1 Testcases NOT AVAILABLE

Executing subset (SUB-3) results in all testcases  to be run successfully.

Overall any testcases which were not executed successfully in the initial run are made to re-run within a new subsets yielding successful runs. The collective results of the execution of these subsets will contribute to the result of the set to which these subsets belong to.


Results:

   SET   =      SUB-1     +     SUB-2     +    SUB-3

Any inputs on how do we achieve such iteration scenarios in RQM ??

If the only thing you need is grouping your test case results you can use categories to achieve that:

You can put all the test cases into a Test Suite. RQM 4.0 provide an option to skip a particular step (you can skip the step / test case whichhas passed in previous execution). ut this feature is not there in RQM 3.0. This has been implemented by Restart test suite execution from a selected test case (57578)

You could also look in to using Child Test Plans (this is an optional section of a Test Plan). Create a child test plan for each test iteration adding to it the appropriate test cases.
