Why Is Software Quality Testing Important?

The evolution of the machine industry has resulted in the increasing use of digital means, and software is playing an increasingly important role in machine design. As a result, the definition of machine has been adapted. 

In addition, the definition of safety components will cover not only physical devices but also digital ones. To consider the increasing use of it as such, software that performs a safety function and is independently placed on the market must be considered a safety component.

Companies must be aware about how to develop, test, verify and validate it.

Our expertise in the certification of application software is critical, ensuring compliance with the latest functional safety standards.
