MXAM Brings your model into line.

MQC in Action

ISO 250XX for Software Product Quality - 1 day


Date Location
Aug 24, 2021 Online


Quality monitoring is a major challenge. This training class provides all relevant basics for the consistent and continuous assessment of product quality of embedded systems. Firstly, their quality depends on the application of suitable processes and secondly, on the implementation of specific quality assurance measures. Using the MES Quality Commander (MQC), participants will learn how to quantify the success of individual measures and how the results of these measurements continuously influence product quality. We will explain the concepts of ISO 250XX and demonstrate how to use continuous quality evaluation through specific modelbased software development processes and toolchain examples with the help of MQC. We will establish key aspects pertaining to core development standards such as ISO 26262 and show how continuous quality monitoring helps to implement these standards.

Target Audience

This training class is targeted at quality managers and engineers, process managers, as well as developers, testing engineers, project, and team leaders who focus on the quality assurance of embedded software. Share your experiences and discuss with other tool users.
