The new whitepaper »Guide for successful software testing in intralogistics« is now available!


With the publication of the whitepaper, the »Team warehouse logistics« of the Fraunhofer Institute for Material Flow and Logistics IML provides a transparent overview of the topic of software testing in intralogistics and thus supports the »warehouse logistics« community in its ideal use. Besides the preparation and execution of software tests, the paper additionally includes the successful go-live.

With the help of software tests, it should be checked whether the specified functionalities and processes on the part of the software are fulfilled and run without errors. For this purpose, they are defined in the specification phase in a requirements and functional specification and, if necessary, adapted by additions. Due to the high level of functionality, it is difficult to prove that the software is free of errors in a compact form. For this reason, all functionalities and processes should be tested by means of scenarios defined in advance, so that errors can be avoided. After all, the later these errors are discovered, the more expensive they are to correct.

The whitepaper helps with the successful use of software tests and describes the structure of the test documents, the detailed procedure for testing as well as the handling of test deviations and the successful implementation including go-live.

The whitepaper »Guide for Successful Software Testing in Intralogistics« is available now at the following link:
