Software Test and Quality Assessment Laboratory (YTKDL) was established in January of 2010 with the objective of conducting test and quality assessment activities of software projects.
The center aspires to meet test and quality assessment needs of software projects in both national and international scale by checking conformity to international software standards. Software test and quality assessment activities carried out in YTKDL aim at contributing to the software quality by detecting possible defects in the early phases of the projects.
SOFTWARE TEST SERVICES
The services are focused on both functional and non-functional testing by wellexperienced teams using advanced test methodologies and test automation tools.
Details of the services provided are as follows:
- Preparation of test plans
- Participation in reviews (documents, requirements, design, codes)
- Preparation of tests and maintenance of traceability
- Setting up the test environment in cooperation with the project team
- Development of testing software
- Execution of test cases (software, system and acceptance tests) for integrated products
- Execution of regression tests
STATIC CODE ANALYSIS
In the scope of static code analysis assessment of software source code is carried out by software static code analysis tools. Measuring software quality metrics such as maintainability, reliability, portability, efficiency and testability is also a part of the assessment. After measurements corresponding software quality analysis reports are prepared. These reports include analysis about the potential problems in the software quality as well as recommendations on where to start improving the code.
Within the scope of the usability assessments, the following activities are conducted: Evaluation of web applications in compliance with the rules of “TS ISO 9241-151 Web User Interface rules (Human System Interaction Ergonomics Standards)”, preparation of the related reports, compatibility evaluation of the internet websites of public institutions with KAKIS (Websites for Public Institutions).
Conduct of load tests of websites and preparation of evaluation reports.
TS ISO/IEC 25051 COTS PRODUCT EVALUATION
Evaluation of the commercial off-the shelf software products (COTS) in compliance with a series of documents such as “TS ISO/IEC 25051 Software engineering-Software product Quality Requirements and Evaluation (SQuaRE)” and preparation of the corresponding reports.
TS 13298 EDMS SOFTWARE EVALUATION
