GEWI’s TestFest Ensures System Reliability

In addition to the daily testing of TIC Software improvements, which precedes each weekly developmental release, GEWI also organizes several “TestFest” events each year for intensive focused testing on specific product components or features.

The most recent TestFest was held in GEWI’s main offices in Bernburg, Germany from 30 September to 02 October. Each TestFest has a specific topic or background depending on upcoming projects that are scheduled to go live, or based on new features that are incorporated into a quarterly product release.

Recent testing has focused on new features related to entering TTE (Traffic and Travel Events) to ensure all commands, tooltips and features are working as expected. This testing includes new features and enhancements to the “Relation”, “Task” and “Template” features. And, with the new RTS (Real Time Statistics) feature being introduced soon, much testing was also focused around this prototype version.

Testing always involves the entire Product Development team, and often also includes GEWI’s Customer Projects (CP) team, who can bring the customer perspective into the process. By involving the CP team, future work can be prioritized by which features are most requested or most popular with GEWI customers.

During and after the test, each tester creates Feedback that describes any problems or new ideas for software enhancements. TIC’s User Feedback feature is designed to automatically capture feedback from right within the TIC software. This feature is not only for testing purposes, but is also available to GEWI customers using the TIC software.
