Automated test framework for industrial reporting system
We designed and delivered an automated test framework. It is customised to meet the high-standards of Metso’s industrial production environments.
We designed an automated web test framework based on Open Source software components, the Selenium framework and Python programming language. We developed a unique visual approach to web testing with a page model generator and page model test designer. Our easy and intuitive tools make test development very fast. Extensive technical skills are no longer required.
Our experts fine-tuned the solution and its key functionalities. It is now ideally suitable for Metso to use for monitoring the reporting systems of industrial production environments. We created a set of reusable regression test cases, performance test scenarios as well as load test scenarios. With a wide array of test cases now a stable part of their continuous integration process, they gain quicker feedback and higher test coverage. We also provided on-site support when the test environment was delivered to production.
“Ixonos manifested excellent know-how and top-rate capability in tailoring a solution for our needs even though the domain was partly new for Ixonos.”
