Software Test Tools

Tools exist to support software testing at all stages of a project. Some vendors offer an integrated suite that will support testing and development throughout a project's life, from gathering requirements to supporting the live system. Some vendors concentrate on a single part of that life cycle. The software test tools knowledge base provides functional criteria you might expect from a testing tool, the infrastructure that supports the tool, and an idea of the market position of the vendor.

Overcoming the Barrier of Traditional Accounting in Lean Environments


Manufacturers of all sizes are more efficient, better managed, and more profitable because of lean—yet this improvement has plateaued at many companies. What’s holding up the progress of lean? The real problem is that as lean evolves and spreads beyond the plant floor, its conflict with traditional accounting is escalating—and becoming more dangerous to the financial health of manufacturers.

For instance, the mainframe may make use of global settings that allow its sub-programs to leave out parts of the data, such as facility codes or two-digit century fields for dates. Because of extensive customization, mainframes are rarely amenable to a direct data load by even advanced EAI tools, and a good Read More

Move Beyond Lean to Build a Competitive Advantage: Strategies for Discrete Manufacturers


For companies that make complex, configurable products, lean manufacturing principles have become an integral part of their day-to-day operations. Over the past 30 years, lean has helped these companies streamline manufacturing and supply chain processes to eliminate waste and deliver other important business benefits.

But there’s now statistical evidence showing that in discrete manufacturing the presumed benefits from lean have not yielded the competitive advantage that manufacturers had hoped for. Read this white paper to find out more.
