The ISTQB Best Practices® are an important part of quality assurance in all MES Test Center test projects.
Last week, the MES Test Center team put itself to the test. New team members have also passed the ISTQB® Certified Tester exam, following a two-month orientation period in the MES Test Center. As a result, all MES Test Center team members are ISTQB®-certified. This is a trademark of the quality of the testing services provided by the MES Test Center; ultimately, ISTQB® Best Practices are established in all current and future MES Test Center projects.
The ISTQB® Certified Tester Program
The ISTQB® Certified Tester Program certifies testers worldwide by explaining, applying, and testing best practices in systematic testing. This allows for international standardization in software tester qualifications, and serves to secure the highest software quality standards. The ISTQB® Certified Tester Program is recognized as an important standard in the field of software testing.
Highest Quality in the Entire Team Leads to Excellent Performance of the Test Team at MES
Dr. Hartmut Lackner, Head of the MES Test Center, congratulated the team: "Passing this exam has again made clear the high quality of the team's work. I am very happy for my colleagues and am confident that the knowledge gained via this exam will be used to positive effect in all projects. That colleagues who have only been with us two months have also already attained the large goal of passing the ISTQB exam is testament that our quality assurance processes are right on the mark and that our excellent team work leads to the highest standards."
The MES Test Center
The MES Test Center supports customers in the continuous safeguarding of software models. The engineers use MES-developed MES Quality Tools for quality assessment and assurance. This allows customers to automate quality assurance in the best possible way. Among the services provided by the MES Test Center are: ISO 26262-compliant verification and quality assurance; verification of Simulink®, Embedded Coder®, and TargetLink® models; and safeguarding of models from requirements to implementation. Alongside this, the MES Test Center offers coaching on improvement of model design and implementation strategy to reduce verification and quality assurance efforts. The focus here is on an optimal tool platform for testing complex systems with multiple test variants. Through this, customers obtain short-term support in case of capacity limitations among their test experts. Complete management of test projects at a fixed price is also an advantage of using MES test experts. For customers, this means minimized maintenance and post-processing effort, as well as increased efficiency through optimal automation of their models. Alongside this, they can rely on the experience and expertise of ISTQB-certified testers and ISO 27001-certified test laboratories.
