How the Quality Center (QC) is used in real time projects?

In real time projects after writing the test cases, export the test cases to quality center. The test cases will get loaded in test plan module.
At the time of execution, the test cases from test plan tab are moved to test lab module.
In test lab, the test cases were executed and the test results are marked like pass or fail or incomplete, the test report is generated from test lab.
If the defects are found, the defects are logged in the defects module by attaching the required screenshots.

Explain Test Plan module in Quality Center (QC).

In Test Plan module by creating a folder one can create test manually or automatically for all the requirements.
In the folder an empty test was created, based on the test the corresponding functional tool (QTP or Load runner) was launched to generate test scripts. Click save button. The test script will be saved in the empty script file created in QC. Likewise it has to be created for all the tests.
After creating all the tests, a link between the test and corresponding requirement with the help of requirements coverage tab can be created, this would be helpful for automatic traceability.
