Comprehensive Requirements Traceability
Requirements are correlated with automated and manual tests, source code, and development/testing tasks. The current level of verification for each requirement or task (including task pass/fail status and coverage) can be assessed at any time by back tracing to all associated tests. This correlation also enables change-based regression testing, which identifies exactly which tests are impacted by source code and requirement modifications. Teams know exactly which tests need to be rerun and which code needs to be re-reviewed.
In addition to tracking when the functionality for each requirement is implemented and tested, Parasoft also monitors compliance with non-functional requirements (e.g., coding standards, peer review, coverage, etc.) The system can be configured so that functionality is not considered "complete" unless it complies with the team's quality expectations.
