Alternative modelling of test cases

Postby alexdu » Tue Jan 01, 2019 7:59 am

Dear all,

I'm currently working on my first SysML model in CSM and I'm struggeling with finding a good way to model (system) test cases for the (system) requirements I have in the model. I know there is the test case activity in SysML, but for my purpose this does not seem to fit well. I want to link each requirement with a test case (verify relationship) while each test case contains a numbered list of textual test step elements which each consist of a "test procedure" and "expected result" field. I want to be able to maintain the test cases and steps in a table and not in any graphical diagram for usability reasons.

I found an example on the net, where the approach is demonstrated using another tool: ... rement.jsp

Is there a simple way to implement something like this in CSM using generic tables? How would the test cases and the test steps then need to be modeled?

Dear Alex,

you can use the Documentation tag of the Test Case to specify the steps and expected results of each step:

The steps table in the Documentation tag can be created in HTML.

The Generic Table enables to have all the Test Cases in one view and also see/update what requirements each Test Case verifies:

To see the relevant columns in the table, you need to select them from the Show Columns menu above the table:
