While we have been successfully using TestRail 5.1 for software development for a while, we are just starting to use it for hardware development. The use-cases are different when developing and testing hardware, as often times tests call for the measurements of signals across different criteria ranges, such as temperature.
What we need is a way of specifying a table of criteria to be entered in the expected results, and for this same table to be edited when running the test. The markup table currently available is insufficient (it’s awkward, and does not automatically carry over from expected to actual results). We have thought about simply attaching a spreadsheet to the test, but there is no way to ensure that same spreadsheet is being filled out or subsequently attached during the running of the test. A consistent and reliable method of capturing tabular results data is needed.
