Founding Idea

Software developments with system errors that have a very high degree of public awareness (e.g. astronautics, aircraft construction, telecommunications, industry, …) have increased the awareness and shown the extent to which our lives depend on the correct operation of software.

The role and influence of software and information technology in our society and economy continues to grow (e.g. industry 4.0 and Internet of things), and with it the responsibility of software engineering companies.

These changes in the social, political and economic landscape have also raised the quality standards for software and information technology. There is an increasing demand for the development of technologies, tools, methods and models for software and system quality.

In this environment, in which software quality is becoming increasingly important, Software Quality Lab was founded in 2003 - even then with the idea of providing consulting and services in these areas with competence and with the necessary experience.

The focus was and is on areas that represent the known weaknesses in the system and software engineering process and that are often neglected by engineers/manufacturers and customers due to a lack of resources or time pressure (such as e.g. requirements analysis and definition, test, test automation, process quality).

Software Quality Lab also collaborates with university institutes in order to identify the latest trends and methods at an early stage and to participate in their further development, practical implementation and propagation.
