Qumate by achelos offers quality assurance at the highest level

Qumate is the innovative solution from achelos for manufacturer-independent end-to-end testing of IT networks, products and solutions. achelos offers a large number of test suites for immediate use on the basis of Qumate. The test suites can be accessed either locally or remotely, which facilitates new business models.

Keeping an eye on the business process at all times

Qumate by achelos offers a cross-project view that depicts both the business process and the accompanying technical requirements clearly and logically in a tree structure. It is based on the Eclipse integrated development environment and, thanks to its modular architecture, can be flexibly extended with plug-ins. Qumate is an in-house development from achelos that is used in many national and international projects.

The Qumate by achelos testcenter has a well-structured graphic user interface and offers a great deal of design freedom, for example for the reporting and logging function. Thanks to a high degree of transparency and excellent performance, Qumate by achelos facilitates test management at the highest level.

Advantages of Qumate by achelos

  • The entire test process can be covered without media discontinuity
    (request, test specifications, test suite, reporting, coverage analysis)
  • Proven and recognised test center for security-critical areas of application
  • Very high degree of automation
  • Transparent reporting
  • One central database for document exports and software documentation
  • Collaborative development (specifications and test)
  • Remote testing – at any time and in any location
  • High-performance test center with flexible, modular test environment
  • Audit-proof documentation of the test results, compliant with Common Criteria

Qumate by achelos Workflow

The Qumate by achelos testcenter covers the complete test workflow from requirement analysis over test implementation and execution up to coordination of testing activities and the result analysis. It offers various tools and solutions for rapid and thorough testing and also provides a reliable documentation of all results during development, approval, and daily operation in the field. It uses centrally stored project data giving requirement analysts, developers, testers, and managers the opportunity to work simultaneously on the same project. As a versatile testing solution, Qumate by achelos allows both functional and non-functional testing, for example security testing. Via a remote interface, a remote test target can be tested with an onsite test suite and the test case specification can be accessed through other systems.

Using the Qumate by achelos testcenter in the test process

This overview outlines how Qumate by achelos supports the activities of the test process (see ISTQB Certified Tester Foundation Level Syllabus 2018, Section 1.4.2).

  • Test planning
The objectives of testing and the testing approach can be created and documented in a structured test specification inside the Qumate Requirement Manager. As a result, configurable test specification documents can be exported.
  • Test monitoring and control
The Qumate Test Framework allows the monitoring of the test progress and directly summarizes and visualizes the test results. The status of the realization of tests can be tracked in the Qumate Requirement Manager.
  • Test analysis
The Qumate Requirement Manager is used to organize the requirements and therefore helps with the analysis of the test coverage. If the testing level for specific requirements is categorized as too low, additional tests can be directly included in the test specification.
  • Test design
The test design is carried out using the Qumate Requirement Manager. The test cases can be defined where the test fragments serve as building blocks for several test cases. Test data for an entire test suite or for a specific test case can be made available by defining the parameters.
  • Test implementation
The test suite-export of the Qumate Requirement Manager creates a test suite that can be executed by the Qumate Test Framework. The test suite contains test scripts (Java code files) for every test case. Qumate already contains a variety of interfaces to control the test environment (e.g., simulators) when implementing the automated test scripts. Run plans can be defined for the execution of tests.
  • Test execution
The test execution in the Qumate Test Framework uses a versatile logging and reporting framework. Detailed test reports are created for every test case to record the information about the test environment, the executed tests with actual and expected results, and the test result. Both individual test cases as well as a sequence of test cases, which is defined in a run plan, can be easily repeated.
  • Test completion
The Qumate Test Framework prepares the data needed for test completion. It can generate defect reports (in the form of JIRA issues) for failed tests. The test reports are collected inside test sessions, so that a new test session can be used for every test project.
