When and How to Generate Test Cases Automatically

Eventdate: November 09th, 2021

The automatic generation of test cases has always been a controversial topic. While some people dream about stopping any manual test activities others say that test generation is not allowed. In this Webinar Wolfgang Meincke and Thabo Kricked discussed when (and when not) it makes sense to generate test cases automatically and how to do it.

Ensuring Requirements-Traceability in an Agile Embedded Software Development Project

Eventdate: April 27th, 2022

In this free Webinar, Wolfgang Meincke and Thabo Krick showed how to ensure an efficient connection and bi-directional traceability between your test tools and ALM/PLM solutions within an agile Model-based development process. While the presented strategy is generic, the live demo focussed on a toolchain which consists of Siemens Polarion, Simulink, dSPACE TargetLink and BTC EmbeddedTester.

What You Should Know About Fixed-Point and Floating-Point

Eventdate: March 23rd, 2022

“Handling Fixed-Point Code is difficult (especially because of the time consuming scaling task) while Floating-Point solves all problems as it is able to make calculations with almost ideal mathematical precision.” In this Webinar, Wolfgang Meincke and Markus Gros clarified this and many other common misunderstandings about the advantages and disadvantages of Fixed-Point Code and Floating-Point Code for embedded software.

4 Strategies to Upgrade to a New MATLAB/Simulink Version

Eventdate: Februar 24th, 2022

In this free Webinar Thabo Krick and Yatish Chitluri discussed four different approaches regarding their effectiveness and potential degree of automation:

  • 1. A static comparison of models and code files (e.g. using tools like BeyondCompare)
  • 2. Re-execution of Functional Test Cases
  • 3. Structural Regression Test with Functional Test Cases
  • 4. Structural Regression Test with Auto-Generated Test Cases for 100% coverage
