How do you make your machine control future proof?

August 25, 2021

The trends within smart industry demand for reliable and flexible solutions. A huge number of changes are taking place around the operation and control for machine. How can you take these trends into account without increasing the cost price of your machines? After all, in serial manufacturing, using market components is much costlier than developing specific control units for the machine. However, developing a specific control unit requires specialized expertise and equipment. In most cases purchasing a control unit would be more cost-efficient than developing the required knowhow yourself. This is the reason why ICT developed the Machine Control Platform. Read more

Faster and better testing with Model-Based Testing, however be careful when you select your test cases

April 23, 2021

Around the year 2010 Model-Based Testing (MBT) was at the top of the hype cycle. It was seen as a must-have. The method could be implemented with relative ease and required only limited investment. Then a range of disillusions followed. It turned out to be more complex than anticipated and the costs often outweighed the benefits. This was the reason for most organisations to stop using MBT. Which is a shame, as experience proves that MBT can definitely contribute to productivity when used in the right situations. What are these situations? And what are important factors to take into account when you are considering applying MBT? Read more
