Software quality pays off in the long term

When innovative business ideas fail owing to countless bugs and bad decisions, not only do good ideas fall by the wayside, resources are wasted unnecessarily. Intelligent quality assurance combats this effectively and increases the ability to act.

Professional, standardised test management thereby not only increases the quality of a software product, it also contributes significantly to reducing project costs.

Conscious control of software quality

Failures can be avoided by strategically adopting tried-and-trusted quality assurance measures such as performance tests. At bbv, our quality assurance strategy involves an intelligent combination of models, methods and test automation. And for good reason, as this allows the desired quality level to be controlled consciously.

Innovation workshops

From idea to business case. The innovation workshops provide a forum for us to develop business ideas with you relating to technological and methodological trend topics.

Innovation Workshops

Quality begins with the right mindset

bbv’s software developers are professional in their respective disciplines and their mindset is always to deliver top-class work. After all, achieving above-average performance demands constant awareness of the impact of quality-related decisions.

In addition, our teams have to be able to assess the situation and the objectives precisely in order to choose the correct methodical, technical and organisational measures. Our Software Development Quality map summarises the wealth of successful strategies for achieving optimum quality assurance with the bbv seal of approval.

Efficient test management for an SBB Intranet project

Efficient test management for an SBB Intranet project

The SBB Intranet is the main channel for internal communication. Apart from comprehensive information, it also includes many self-service offers and a variety of specific SBB applications. The new “OneIntranet” project was to replace old individual portals and standardise them under a new design. bbv supported SBB with its testing know-how.

Success Story

More efficient testing with tool-based automation

Certainty in power supply: Switchgear installations must fulfil the strictest requirements. The software components developed by bbv resulted in significantly increased testing efficiency at ABB thanks to automated test planning, implementation and documentation. This also had a positive impact on employee motivation.

Success Story
Bernd Heisterkamp, Head of Technical Support, Substation Automation & Protection, ABB Schweiz AG

bbv supported us reliably from evaluation through to the roll-out of HPE-ALM. We can use the tool efficiently and therefore increase the quality of our systems.

Quality-assured energy measurement data feeds

High-quality measurement data feeds are the basis for efficient energy data management. BKW-FMB Energie AG rolled out a new metering system for this purpose. bbv supported the migration in terms of quality assurance and optimisation of the processes involved in recording and processing measurement data.

Success Story
Faster testing with efficient test design and suitable tools

Faster testing with efficient test design and suitable tools

How can testing be performed efficiently? To find an answer to this question, bbv examined the electronics testing process at maxon motor ag and developed a new test concept. The test process and the tools used specially for this purpose now allow high test coverage, faster reporting and a higher level of test automation.

Booklet: Quality-driven development in brownfield projects

Booklet: Quality-driven development in brownfield projects

Many long-term projects (also in the embedded sphere) become increasingly complex over time as maintenance, verification, troubleshooting and adaptations become ever more intricate and susceptible to error. This 48-page booklet shows that it makes absolute sense to also use agile principles in brownfield projects with quality-driven development (QDD/TDD).
