Metso DNA is a system the clients of Metso use to control their industrial processes. The system is used, for example, on ships, power plants and paper mills to do anything from controlling individual machines to performing process automation across the entire facility. Needless to say, there is no room for error.
Automation applications are traditionally tested fully manually, and by more than one employee. Test management is often based on Excel tables where information on up to tens of thousands of tested segments is entered. These tables are then forwarded by email. This process is very heavy, so the Metsonians asked us to set up a new kind of test automation system.
