Creating reports

The report wizard can be accessed by navigating to the menu entry

ANALYZE → Reporting → Create report

The default report shows simple traceability statistics only. Further reports (e.g., coverage analysis report) have to be implemented by the end users. The reporting is based on Eclipse BIRT (Business Intelligence and Reporting Tools). Reports can be designed with the BIRT WYSIWYG Designer. ANALYZE comes with data access drivers for BIRT to provide convenient access to analysis data.

You have the option to select one or several validations to be executed before the report creation. This is to ensure that the report is created based on valid data and will contain reliable results.

In the above example a coverage report is designed that shows User Requirements without System Requirements. Coverage analyzes are calculated by joining and filtering corresponding data sets.

During the design of reports often all possible artifacts of a specific type are required. These sets are called candidates. The figure below depicts the meaning of candidates.
