So what is VMM planner ? VMM planner is a tool which can atomatically annotate the functional coverage and code coverage from regression runs and present the data in a XLS or XML format. It associates the test plan to the test result automatically. The planner can be used for managing verification effort for any project. The basic requirement for using VMM planner is we need to have complete test plan mapped to a functional coverage model. Once we have the plan as an XML or HVP document we can automaticlly annotate the test result using HVP commands. Some of the user provided metrics like bug count , test pass/fail count can be provided to planner tool using the userdata command .We can use VMM planner to report verification status to top level management.
