What is MQC?

MES Quality Commander® is a monitoring and management tool for the comprehensive quality assessment of model-based software development. User-friendly visualizations, evaluations, and data capturing assist the user to assess the current quality of artifacts and provide a status overview of the overall project quality.

Release Notes - MQC v.4.2 (March 2020)

Significant Import Time and Memory Reduction for Huge Data

  • The import of huge sets of data files and complete directories of files is much faster now. In addition, the memory consumption was reduced considerably.
  • The mechanism of monitoring for file and directory changes was reworked to detect changes safe and with less computing resources. Due to the adapted caching mechanism the reimport of changed files is much faster now as well.

User Experience

  • The marking in the bin distribution is more intuitive now. Revisions on status pages can be selected with just one click. Similarly, a quality bin on trend pages can be selected for all revisions with one click.
  • The extension of marking when combining marking on bin distribution and in KPIs is more intuitive now.
  • The showing of the KPIs and the calculations inside the KPIs are fully dynamic now and reflect the marking on the other visualization of the page.
  • Artifact and revision marking on quality or data pages is directly reflected on other quality and data pages.

Availability of MQC Server and MQC Web Viewer/Editor

  • The MQC Server is now available for on-premise installation and setup. Now you can have a secure library of your analysis including access to your local network (and data).
  • With this availability of the internal library you can easily create a shared analysis (and some tasks can run regularly on the server, i.e. to update an analysis with new data)
  • Together with the MQC Server, the MQC Web Viewer/Editor is now available. It provides the functionality of the client directly in a browser while the analysis is opened/running on the MQC Server.
