  • by D. Russell Sloan, Implementation and Governance Specialist — SAP Solution Manager, IBM Global Business Services
  • July 22, 2014
Solution Manager 7.1 has some new features to help you perform end-to-end testing with or without advanced test automation and management tools. Testing plans, test packages, email notifications, and work centers help you plan, execute, and manage testing for your SAP solution.
Learning Objectives

Reading this article, you will:

  • Learn how to build test plans, test cases, and sequence testing for the testing teams
  • See how work centers can aid in both test execution and test management
  • Learn how to store test cases and share test data
  • Understand how Solution Manager can help you coordinate the efforts of the members of your testing team
Key Concept

Solution Manager test planning and management provides reusable test assets for future enhancements, break fixes, and upgrades. Proper setup of test plans, packages, and sequences can help your testers know when to test what, and to communicate test results in a central repository.

Testing is a crucial part of any successful solution implementation. You can leverage the Business Process Hierarchy (BPH) to house test cases as your project proceeds through the design and build of the to-be business processes. You can use that content when planning and executing testing using the Solution Manager Test Workbench and the Solution Manager work center. I’ll explore how to create test plans, group test cases into test packages, sequence the tests to be performed, and assign testers to specific test steps.
