Metrological Software

Working Group 8.51

Software Examination


In the context of the type approval and certification processes in legal metrology, software tests are conducted by the working group in different test depths – from checklist based document review up to source code analysis. In areas other than legal metrology, the members of the working group also have years of experience in analytical software quality assurance (software testing) and in the field of preventive quality assurance (evaluation and improvement of software development processes). Other groups at PTB can also perform software tests themselves. When doing so, they are supported and advised by working group 8.51.
