All test modules of the Test Universe software have a common element – the reporting function: each module provides a fully formatted test report. Depending on the module the results come from, data is entered in tabular and/or graphical form. If several modules are used within the OCC to comprise a test, each module adds its specific piece of data to the overall report. After testing is finished, test results and assessments are entered automatically to complete the report. Reports can easily be printed, stored, or exported to standard office applications using Rich Text format (RTF) and TXT format.
Customizing test reports based on individual requirements is easy. The visible content of test reports can be defined independently from the recorded data, by just selecting or deselecting items from the list. Recorded data will always remain available in the test file, regardless of whether the user chooses to include them in the reports. Defined report settings are quickly and easily generated, saved with a form name, and reloaded at a later time; company specific elements like logos etc., can easily be included.
Exporting test results: Besides the standard export formats TXT and RTF for further use of the data, such as in Microsoft Word, OMICRON Control Center documents provide the following two export formats for more extensive external post-processing of test data: the well-known CSV format and XML (Extensible Markup Language). CSV and XML Data Export are also available in all test modules in stand-alone mode. XML is a text-based data format that supports a non-proprietary method of interfacing the test data with any third-party database (e.g. Microsoft Access, Microsoft SQL Server).
