All of the power supplies tested passed the thermal, stress test, and low/high voltage operation criteria at 440 Hz. However, there is one very important parameter that must be considered in deeming a power supply appropriate for operation in a 400 Hz environment. This parameter is known as power factor, commonly abbreviated as PF. The higher the PF (desired), the lower the reactance and the more current is in phase with the voltage. The lower the PF (undesired), the higher the reactance and the more out of phase is the current with respect to the voltage. The purposes of this whitepaper are: to provide confidence in claiming compliant operation outside the stated vendor specifications, namely at 400 Hz, suitable for use with airborne power buses to provide compliance with margin and eliminate borderline passing scenarios to provide insights on the supplies that are 400 Hz compatible

Analyzing large amounts of production data by actual users is a very good risk-based approach to testing highly complex systems based on what users actually do instead of all of the theoretical permutations of what a system may need to support. Is software testing capable of employing A.I. approaches, or will human software testers soon be bested by computers as well? This white paper highlights one specific approach that is driven by analyzing large amounts of production data that describes actual usage by real users through the data taken behind them. It discusses: How A.I. can help the 5 basic sources of test coverage Different ways in which A.I. in testing can also be used Risk-Based Testing-Which test cases are most important and most likely to encounter failure, and how do you limit the count?

Good Laboratory Practices (GLP): In order to enhance patient safety and improve the quality of testing performed in laboratories, there is a need for integrating good laboratory practices. There are many areas and processes that a laboratory should consider before adding waived testing to the panel of services. Incorporating FDA GLP capabilities into CAP/clinical facility poses certain challenges. Starting a FDA GLP compliant facility from scratch or bringing FDA GLP compliant capabilities into a facility that is already established under a different set of regulations or practices is challenging. So what are the common challenges in implementing regulations for good laboratory practices and how can they be overcome? Read this whitepaper to know about the common queries on more advanced topics related to integrating good laboratory practice. How can we incorporate CAP and FDA GLP compliant testing in the same space? What are the models used by a facility for incorporating FDA GLP capabilities into its CAP / clinical facility? What are the activities associated with good laboratory practices? Download this whitepaper now to learn more about FDA GLP and CAP regulations for integrating good laboratory practices in your clinical facility.

Automation testing mainly supplements manual testing and makes the whole testing process more efficient. This whitepaper discusses about the advantages of including automation testing on a project, and how it provides a clear idea to testers, developers and clients about the functionality of product in order to overcome failures. Introducing automated testing involves higher costs, but it also depends on key factors such as: Is the team already experienced with using test automation? Do they have an automation framework in place that can easily be fitted to a new project? How much time does it take to build such a framework? Are the tools used for automation free or do they require bought licenses? What is Automation framework? An automation framework is nothing but an integrated, rigorously structured system, capable of establishing a set of rules for the test automation of a software product. Why is it necessary to include Test Automation Framework? Test automation framework contains libraries, methods, test modules, resource and configuration files, and documentation needed to run on specific product and can easily enhance the functionality by selecting or removing the components to fit the current project realities.

The Importance of Performing Static Testing to Increase Return On Investment
White Paper: QA Mentor
Static testing is an option too often overlooked as only one quarter of US companies are engaged in it. But what they fail to recognize is that the return on that investment from static testing is far higher than any money presumably saved by not utilizing it. In comparison with traditional testing processes, static testing tops the charts with certain key features like. Reduces testing costs to a bargain of potential expenditures, maximizing ROI. Much earlier defects detection, thereby making way to faster fixes. Many times more effective than dynamic testing. This white paper elaborates the static testing processes by following a strong and proven methodology which includes. Reviewing the design of application completely with the help of a thorough inspection process. Creating a comprehensive inspection checklist for each document that will be reviewed Performing a walkthrough to ensure Business and industry standards are evaluated properly.
