Purpose and goal
In this project, we sought to understand how to apply our test automation method in a non-regulated domain and to increase its efficiency in a safety-critical (regulated) domain. We learned that smaller non-regulated companies are more difficult to approach than larger ones, and we are currently securing a consultancy contract with a large, non-regulated enterprise. Further, for the regulated domain, we have enabled more efficient test generation and facilitated safety assessment of existing tests.
Expected results and effects
As a result of this project, we expanded the CompleTest technology by evaluating state-of-the-art methods in test generation for the specific needs of different market segments towards a commercially-viable enterprise software solution. We explored new research idea in order to enrich the CompleTest solution with cutting-edge functionality. As a result, CompleTest is a more efficient tool for automatic test generation and can be used for coverage measurement.
Planned approach and implementation
Overall, the project was executed according to the plan. Our intention was to establish contacts with non-regulated small enterprises to explore the feasibility of utilising CompleTest solution. Although the outcome was not as expected, we do now understand better the challenges that lie with having our method in a not so mature organisation. With respect to the regulated domain, we have secured a full-time summer worker at the start of the project for the whole duration of the project. That work has significantly contributed to the implementation of advanced features in CompleTest.
