Test and Quality Management
Give your Quality Assurance (QA) teams the ability to create and organize test plans, test cases, dashboards and reports to manage testing easily, in real time.
Bring your testing teams into the development process earlier to view and run their test cases and instantly log connected defects when tests fail. Your team can:
- Engage in real-time conversations about the impact and prioritization of defects
- Execute, open, or assign tests that directly associate with requirements and features
- Integrate with trusted solutions for test execution and automation
- Build custom reports that provide the analysis you need for industry compliance
- Easily show auditors the connections between regulations, requirements, and tests
Risk and Hazard Analysis
Simplify compliance with integrated risk management
Performing risk analysis early and often throughout the product development process allows your teams the ability to:
- Identify, estimate, and evaluate risks directly in Jama Connect
- Ensure risk analysis is updated throughout the process with real-time data
- Provide more coverage by easily tracing open risks and linking them back to requirements
- Build a comprehensive risk management profile based on techniques including Preliminary Hazard Analysis (PHA) and FMEA in accordance with ISO 14971 and IEC 60812
- Ensure quality and safety in complex product development
Reuse and Baseline Management
Reduce development time and ensure consistency across projects
Compare versions of a requirement, generate branches to develop a variant, and create catalogs of reusable requirements and baselines of your development streams at milestones or versions.
- Compare two versions of a requirement side by side and see what changed
- Keep your data organized and secure across one project or many, automatically
- Create a baseline by taking a “snapshot” that documents the current state of a project, or any subset of a project, at a given point in time
- Create catalogs of reusable requirements to get your next product to market faster
- Generate branches of a product to develop a variant or a new version
