In our sample we will go on using Excel to keep things simple.
Of course it's also possible to use your testmanagement tool there.
For reasons of simplification we have used Excel files again. You can find a sample test suite at
The scenario itself can be found in
All used test cases are described in a separate excel file, see
Please take care to copy the demo folder to a project-related folder first and modify them there.
The provided scenario consists of two test cases using the concept of generic procedures and components (see section 29.3). You can use any other approach, if you want.

Those test cases correspond with the worksheets in
The worksheets "tc_createvehicle" and "tc_createvehicle_cheap" contain the respective test case description.
