We are pleased to report that the ‘Introduction to Integration Testing’ workshop we gave yesterday at UKEmbedded, in Coventry, was a huge success. Companies in attendance included an OEM of biomedical monitoring equipment, an OEM of sports and fitness training equipment, a life-sciences company developing advanced sensing technologies and a real-time operating system (RTOS) company. Also present were three engineering consultancies.
Delegate job titles included R&D Engineer, Embedded Software Engineer and Managing Director.
The breadth of the audience, i.e., the types of company present and the sectors they serve, reflects just how important integration verification is within the world of embedded systems right now. OEMs are under pressure to fast track the development of their products to hit target launch dates. However, they must ensure that quality and reliability are not compromised.
As well as appreciating the importance of better integration testing – thoroughly and as soon as possible within the product development lifecycle – all attendees expressed a high level of interest in our very own solution to automated integration verification; a solution which will be formally launched as a commercial Windows-based application later this year.
