SpiraTeam is a powerful test management tool to handle the software test processes. It assists the test manager to plan and manage test activities such as project planning, releases, iterations. It provides the test manager with the ability to identify incidents, manage test cases, requirement and associated traceability. The main problem that exists in software testing management research is how to effectively manage the whole software test processes in a single environment. The Software Test Process (STP) is characterized by the decay in number due to the remaining errors, failure intensity, and an increase in code coverage on a tested software. It is very important for a manager to decide how to spend testing-resources on software testing for developing a quality and reliable software. Considering some kinds of software-testing management problems, such as requirement traceability, test coverage and testing-resource control problem for how to spend the allocated amount of testing-resource per expected time. This research applied SpiraTeam to manage the tests on an embedded real time system of medium size called OBA. This paper reports and demonstrates the capabilities of SpiraTeam to manage test activities and its significant contribution in test management.
