Ascom is looking into how the Mobility product family quality can increase even further. Top performance and stability are key selling points for us. It is therefore important that we continuously evolve our software test capabilities.
Today we have huge records of data concerning the quality of our products. It could be bug reports, test run results and/or customer tickets. The idea’ is to use this data in a “smart way” to make a prioritization on what is most important to test. The purpose of this master thesis or temporary stundent work is to:
- Investigate methods on how to analyze test and quality data as described above.
- Implement a prototype software mechanism that executes the desired tasks. This could preferably be done with AI and/or data mining approach. Own code and/or open source.
- Validate the theory and implementation on a project.
Could be adapted to students and company needs.
