Berlin, 8 April 2019 – The Electrical Energy business of the PSI Software AG and the eXept Software AG have concluded a cooperation for test automation. Thus, PSIcontrol systems users of obtain access to the same testing environment that PSI uses.
Automatic product tests are standard for software development. For reasons of security, a new release requires testing of the entire system. In addition, there are tests following improvements and corrections of software already in operation in which potentially impacted software sections have to be checked with a smoke test. In the future, panel tests, complex workflow tests as well as cross-technology tests between rich-client application in C/C++ or Java, web applications and mobile applications will be automated. The direct tracking of results in the flow diagrams allows easier and quicker analysis and identification of problem areas. During acceptance tests, the functionality of the entire system can be tested, reproducibly and quickly.
At the PSI EE Info Days in Aschaffenburg, customers were already able to inform themselves about test scenarios for network control applications. PSI continuously expands the available test cases and enables operators of PSI systems to test in their own IT environment. Precisely this goal is achieved with the cooperation with eXept - reusability of the test cases directly at the customer's site.
With the product suite expecco, eXept Software AG provides a flexible framework for test automation and test management. The high rate of reusability of the test cases across all the stages of testing leads to a drastic reduction of the maintenance costs.
Based on its own software products, the PSI Group develops and integrates complete solutions for optimizing the flow of energy and materials for utilities (energy networks, energy trading, public transport) and industry (mining, metals production, automotive, mechanical engineering, logistics). PSI was founded in 1969 and employs more than 1.900 persons worldwide.
