MES Quality Commander® (MQC)

Quality monitoring for software products

The MES Quality Commander® is a dynamic management and control tool for use in qualitative software development. It captures all key data relevant for product quality throughout the software lifecycle, giving you an objective basis for decision-making and reliable risk control. The MES Quality Commander® evaluates the quality and viability of your software product on the basis of all relevant development artifacts and the corresponding status and performance metrics.

Code and model-based development

The MES Quality Commander® can be used in both classic programming and model-based development. It can be integrated into your development environment and provides relevant key data and evaluation criteria. Customized adaptation to your tool chain and specific requirements will provide detailed information on your quality targets.

Adaptable quality model

The MES Quality Commander® uses a quality model that can be individually customized to your quality targets and development processes. You are free to determine which quality measurements (e.g. guideline checking, complexity measurement, testing) are accorded which weight in the overall evaluation of your product.

How MQC supports you:

1. Continuous monitoring of key data
Continuous monitoring of key data

MQC provides a comprehensive overview of the whole process with its innovative concept of linking product structure, data sources, and quality models. MQC records key data and calculates the metrics for each process step. These are displayed contiguously over the course of time. Missing data are immediately apparent. MQC thus provides a reliable basis for decision-making and risk assessment during the project.

2. Comprehensive quality assessment
Comprehensive quality assessment

MQC enables the extensive evaluation of key data to assess product and process quality by calculating metrics. The quality model is used to determine the contribution of individual metrics to the overall quality. Flexible filters can be used for detailed calculation of quality according to different aspects.

3. Keeping track of compliance status
Keeping track of compliance status

Standards such as ISO 26262 or ASPICE require defined processes and comprehensive documentation of all process steps and results. Completeness and sufficiency of results are decisive for standard compliance. Process and quality monitoring are combined in MQC. Based on a predefined process structure for the respective standard, process completeness and product quality can be verified and documented with regard to standard compliance in MQC.

4. Powerful dashboard visualizations
Powerful dashboard visualizations

Gaining and maintaining an overview is a challenge in almost every project. By integrating with TIBCO® Spotfire®, MQC offers a variety of ways to display the collected data, metrics, and quality, with the capability of focusing on individual details.

5. Detailed reports
Detailed reports

“Where do I stand within the project?”, “Where is the problem?”, “What exactly has to be done?” MQC quickly provides the necessary details to answer these questions. Reports can be generated quickly and easily in various formats for documentation.

6. Seamless integration
Seamless integration

Due to the scalable modular design of the MQC product line, MQC is suitable for use in individual project teams as well as company-wide IT integration, offering extensive integration and automation support from data acquisition to reporting.
