Quality management Cognos report descriptions

Engineering Lifecycle Management provides you with access to an additional set of IBM® Cognos® sample reports that you can customize. You can import these reports into quality management in their current state, or you can make changes in Cognos tools before you import them. The table below gives an overview of these reports with their default parameters.

If you are using Cognos reports, Rational® Reporting for Development Intelligence is no longer available as an optional component for Engineering Lifecycle Management, and IBM Rational Insight® is no longer in service. To continue using Cognos reports with Engineering Lifecycle Management, you must install IBM Cognos Business Intelligence or Cognos Analytics and then install ALM Cognos Connector.

Name Type Drill-down Description
Business Analysis Execution Status Composite Reports No This report consists of four charts that provide status on execution progress, total defects, cumulative total defects, and total cumulative defects.
Active Defects by Severity Defects No Displays the active defects by severity. The defect numbers in this chart increase or decrease depending on the active defect counts. This report helps you analyze the severity of the currently unresolved defects, so that resources can be redirected if needed.
Defect Arrival and Resolution Over Time Defects No Compares the number of opened defects with the number of resolved and closed defects over time. This information helps to assess the rate at which your team is resolving defects.
Defect Listing (Live) Defects Yes Lists the defects that match the options given for the project area, test plan, and milestone fields. The defect details include defect summary, state, severity, priority, and creation time.
Defect Scorecard Metrics Defects No Displays the total count of defects for the project area, test plan, and milestone, based on specified parameters.
Defect Severity by Category Defects No Displays the number of defects in each category associated with their severity level, based on specified parameters.
Defect Trend Against Expected Defects No Displays the total defects, the valid defects, the projected total defects, and the projected valid defects.
Discovered Defects by Severity Defects No Displays the trend number of newly created defects by severity in the project. An upward-sloping line might indicate a problem area to investigate, or it could be a good result due to increased testing. Similarly, a low value may indicate good quality or insufficient testing. Unexpected spikes in the number or new-arrived defects may be an indication of quality issues.
Overall Defect Workload Defects No Displays both test and development backlog with arrivals and closures of originated defects only. It helps test and development teams to understand the defect work that is complete, as well as the work that needs to be completed.
