Course Description

This course introduces test managers to the basics of using Engineering Test Management (ETM) to manage a test effort within a software development project.  IBM Test Management is a key component of the IBM Engineering Lifecycle Management (ELM), providing quality management capabilities in a fully-integrated environment. 


The course teaches how to plan the test effort, develop test artifacts, align with requirements and development, manage the test team's work, monitor progress, submit and track defects, and report test results and status.
