Sometimes projects fail, and they do not get released on time or if they are released, they do not meet the planned quality. With all this pressure during testing, many activities could be carried out successively or even concurrently. For instance, the manual test case generation and implementation, the automated scripts' development and validation, test lists crafting, and perhaps some execution also could overlap in time. Such diverse tasks distributed among team members, or even teams, require management and monitoring. Charts are an effective way that helps in achieving these purposes. Every testing task that yields a number can participate in building visual, informative report charts. They can help in various domains briefly described in the following list:
Explain how testing is going and relay discrete numbers to the management instead of speculative assessments.
Give visibility on testing results by also transmitting numbers related to the result of the executed tests.
