How to execute a verification plan

The requirements are captured and the verification plan is set up in BriefBuilder, but how do you execute this verification plan?

Remember that you need the right permissions to be able to execute a verification plan. If you follow the steps below but are unable to edit any information (such as adding outcomes or demonstration documents), please contact your own BriefBuilder administrator!

Navigate to ”Verification” in the navigation bar. Once you click on it, you will see that verification is divided in two parts, Demonstration documents and Verification table. Demonstration documents is used for capturing all demonstration documents. These will serve as an input for the verification table. The verification table will be used to perform the verification of the client’s requirements.

Step 1: Define your demonstration documents

  1. Go to demonstration documents under the Verification header in the navigation bar.
  2. Define your demonstration documents. (Which documents are going to be used to verify the requirements?). Defining the demonstration document are explained here.
  3. Add files to the demonstration documents.

Note: In BriefBuilder you are able to add hyperlinks to properties. You can use this for your demonstration documents if you want to link you demonstration document to your document management system.

Step 2: Search for your relevant parts of the verification plan

  1. Go to the Verification table under the Verification header in the navigation bar.
  2. Use the selection to determine what part of the model you want to verify. If you not sure which part is assigned to you, leave all options on ”No filter” and filter in the table by ”To be performed by” on your role within the project. This way you will get all verification that are assigned to you, this might all be different kind of requirements. Therefor performing the verification might be more efficient to do with using a selection and filters.

Step 3: Execute the verification

  1. Click in the ”outcome” column on the empty field next to the corresponding requirement in the corresponding verification phase.
  2. Choose one of the options that corresponds with the outcome of the verification.
  3. Depending on the project, fill out the other columns included under verification result
  4. In the end click on ”select” in the demonstration documents column to select a demonstration document that demonstrates that the solution is compliant with the client’s requirement.

Note: You will need to set up the demonstration document in the demonstration document tree for it to show up in pop-up. Go back to step one if you need to add a new demonstration document.

Note: You can use cell dragging and filters/sorting to speed up the process of executing a verification plan.

Step 4: Check if you executed all parts of the verification plan that are assigned to you

When executing a verification plan, one may ask “Did I miss something?” With smart use of the filters you can find out. For example, you can filter by ”To be performed by” on your role and then filter by ”outcome” on ”Empty”. This way all the verifications that are assigned to you that don’t have a ”outcome” yet, will be displayed.

Note: Check if your verification table is showing a selection of the project model. If you really want to check if you missed something, make sure that all filters in the selection are set to ”no filter”. That way you will get all the requirements of the project model, note that this will take a bit more time to load.
