World Quality Report 2018: Deutsche Unternehmen legen mehr Wert auf KI-basiertes Testing

Erstmals nennen IT-Experten die Customer Experience den wichtigsten Faktor zur Qualitätssicherung (QS). Darüber hinaus wird die Konvergenz von Künstlicher Intelligenz (KI), maschinellem Lernen und Analytik sowie der gebündelte Einsatz im Bereich intelligenter Automatisierung zur stärksten disruptiven Kraft, um die Transformation in QS und Testing in den nächsten zwei bis drei Jahren weiter voranzutreiben. Zu diesem Ergebnis kommt die 10. Ausgabe des World Quality Reports (WQR) von Capgemini und Sogeti, gemeinsam mit Micro Focus.

In der Gesamtbewertung des Reports war es die „Sicherstellung der Endkundenzufriedenheit” die mit der höchsten Priorität benotet wurde – mit einem durchschnittlichen Gesamtergebnis von 5,85 von insgesamt sieben Punkten. Dicht auf folgt das „Erkennen der Softwarefehler vor dem Go-Live” und die „Steigerung der Qualität von Software oder Produkt” mit jeweils 5,81 Punkten.

In Deutschland wird derzeit mehr Wert auf KI-basiertes Testen gelegt: Die CIOs betonen, dass Unternehmen bereits eine KI besitzen oder eine solche für externe Prozesse geplant haben – Deutschland liegt hier mit 53 Prozent deutlich über dem globalen Schnitt von 45 Prozent. Das Interesse an der Analytik für Tests wächst: Siebenunddreißig Prozent der deutschen Befragten geben an, dass sie prädiktive Analytik zur QS-Optimierung nutzen. Auch Open-Source-Werkzeuge werden in unserer Region immer beliebter, da sie leicht in DevOps und agile Umgebungen integriert werden können.

Der Endkunde ist König

Der Report zeigt, dass Unternehmen bereits Künstliche Intelligenz bei der Optimierung der Qualitätssicherung einsetzen. Bis zu 45 Prozent der Befragten an, dass sie intelligente Automatisierung anwenden. 57 Prozent experimentieren mit neuen Ansätzen beim Testen intelligenter Anwendungen, darunter unter anderem mit Elementen Künstlicher Intelligenz und Maschinellem Lernen. Darüber hinaus geben 59 Prozent der Unternehmen an, dass sie sich im kommenden Jahr voraussichtlich auf Prädiktive Analysen konzentrieren werden, während 54 Prozent an robotergesteuerter Prozessautomatisierung und 36 Prozent an Maschinellem Lernen interessiert sind.

„Qualitätssicherung ist nicht länger eine Backoffice-Funktion“, so Rafael Botor, Leiter Sogeti in Deutschland. „Es ist eine unverzichtbare Angelegenheit, die sich direkt auf das Kundenerlebnis auswirkt und der diesjährige World Quality Report zeigt, dass IT-Profis sich dessen stärker bewusst sind, als je zuvor. IT-Teams werden sich schnell weiterqualifizieren und neue Technologien einführen müssen, um mit der KI-gesteuerten und automatisierten Transformationsumgebung Schritt halten zu können."

Neue Rollen werden sichtbar: KI QS-Strategen, KI-Testexperten und Datenwissenschaftler

Der WQR 2018 zeigt, dass der Zugang zu den erforderlichen Fachkompetenzen in der neuen Technologielandschaft zu einer Herausforderung geworden ist. Mehr als ein Drittel (36 Prozent) der Befragten ist der Ansicht, dass vielen Fachleuten die notwendigen Kompetenzen fehlen, um ein angemessenes Verständnis von KI-Implikationen bei Geschäftsprozessen zu haben. 31 Prozent sind sogar der Meinung, dass das eigene datenwissenschaftliche Skillset nicht ausreicht (siehe Abbildung 1 unten).

Botor ergänzt: „Qualifikationsdefizite sind eine große Hürde, die Unternehmen überwinden müssen. Die Arbeit mit KI erfordert Fachleute mit einem breiten Spektrum an Kompetenzen, wie beispielsweise algorithmischem Wissen, mathematischer Optimierung und Business-Intelligence-Verständnis. Die IT-Abteilung von morgen wird weitaus mehr Datenwissenschaftler, KI-Testexperten und Strategen beschäftigen, als bisher."

KI und Automatisierung auf dem Vormarsch: Umfangreiche QS-Tests mit neuem Ausmaß

Dass der Fokus auf der Zufriedenheit der Endverbraucher liegt, zeigt gleichzeitig auch, wie wichtig andere Geschäftsprioritäten wie Reaktionsfähigkeit (Speed-to-Market), Wettbewerbsfähigkeit und Innovationsfähigkeit sind, so das Fazit des WQR. Es werden die Ansätze vorangetrieben, die versuchen, große Mengen an strukturierten und unstrukturierten Daten in einem angemessenen Rahmen weiter zu verarbeiten. Gleichzeitig spiegelt es auch eine Veränderung bisheriger Denkstrukturen wider, als Weiterentwicklung früherer Ansätze im Bereich der Multi-Channel-Experience.

Raffi Margaliot, Senior Vice President und General Manager, Application Delivery Management bei Micro Focus: „Kunden kommunizieren heute über verschiedenste Geräte und auf komplexen Technologieplattformen, ein nahtloses Benutzererlebnis wird so zum entscheidenden Aspekt auf der Customer Journey. Mit zunehmendem Austesten und Experimentieren in den Bereichen KI, Analytics und IoT müssen sich Unternehmen schnell auf die Weiterentwicklung spezieller Fähigkeiten ihrer Testteams konzentrieren, um mit der fortschrittlichen Technologielandschaft mithalten zu können."

Über den World Quality Report 2018

Die Studie mit 1.700 befragten CIOs und Senior Technology Professionals aus zehn Wirtschaftszweigen (125 davon aus Deutschland) in 32 Ländern, ist der einzige globale Bericht, der Anwendungsqualität und Testtrends analysiert. Er wurde seit 2009 jährlich aufgelegt. Die 10. Ausgabe des Reports wurde erstmalig um computergestützte Telefoninterviews ergänzt und basiert auf quantitativen Interviews aus der ganzen Welt, gefolgt von qualitativen, intensiven Diskussionen. Die Befragten waren eingeteilt in sechs Gruppen: CIO, VP Applications, IT Director, QA/Testing Manager, CDO/CMO und CTO/Produktmanager.

Mit HJS-Abgasnachbehandlung liegt eine saubere Zukunft auf den Schienen

HJS kann bereits heute die Produkte liefern, um diesen Standards gerecht zu werden. Gezeigt werden diese auf der Messe Innotrans in Berlin. 

  • Ziel: Diesel -Abgasemissionen senken, neue Standards erfüllen
  • Erstausrüstung und Nachrüstung (Retrofit) für Antriebssysteme
  • SCRT®-Technik macht die Bahnen sauberer

Die Bahnindustrie steht vor großen Herausforderungen. Moderne Züge brauchen moderne Antriebe – ohne, dass Dieselabgase mit ihren schädlichen Stickoxiden und Rußpartikeln zur Belastung für die Menschen werden. HJS schafft Abhilfe und liefert Systeme, um Emissionen zu senken und strengen Standards gerecht zu werden. Präsentiert werden diese auf der Innotrans in Berlin vom 18. bis 21. September 2018 in Berlin.

Innovationen liefert HJS auf ganzer Linie, der OEM-Erstausrüster entwickelt maßgeschneiderte Lösungen für kleine Nebenantriebe bis hin zum großen Hauptantrieb mit mehr als 1000kW. Das Unternehmen aus dem Sauerland ist langjähriger OE-Lieferant von Abgasnachbehandlungstechnik bei namhaften Motorenherstellern und Herstellern von Gleisbaumaschinen mit über 40-jähriger umfassender Systemkompetenz. Ergänzt wird das Angebot von Abgastechnik für Diesel-, Otto- und Gasmotoren durch ein umfassendes Service- und After-Market-Netzwerk.

EU-Verordnung verschärft Emissionswerte
Gerade auf der Schiene ist es wichtig, neuen Anforderungen gerecht zu werden und auf neueste Technik für saubere Luft zu setzen. Ab dem Jahr 2021 werden die Emissionswerte nach einer EU-Verordnung (2016/1628) verschärft. Vorgeschrieben ist demnach die Stufe V für alle Motorenleistungen: Betroffen sind Lokomotiven und Triebwagen (Anforderung an Grenzwert und Partikelanzahl), auch unter 130kW. Um den Anforderungen der Stufe V gerecht zu werden, setzt HJS bei Motoren zum Antrieb von Triebwagen auf die SCRT®-Technologie.

Neben der Originalausrüstung realisiert HJS auch die Nachrüstung von Zweiwege- und Gleisbaumaschinen in Zusammenarbeit mit namhaften Vertriebs- und Servicepartnern. Durch den Einsatz der SCRT®-Technik wird der Schadstoffausstoß minimiert. Motoren der Stufe II können durch eine solche Nachrüstung Grenzwerte erreichen, wie sie in den Stufen IV oder V vorgeschrieben sind.

Wie die SCRT®-Technik funktioniert
Die Nachrüstung mit der SCRT®-Technik basiert auf einem CRT-Partikelfilter der die Partikel bis auf die Nachweisgrenze abscheidet und der AdBlue®-Technologie. Zur Verminderung der gasförmigen Stickoxide (NOx) kommt ein SCR-Modul zum Einsatz. SCR – das steht für Selective Catalytic Reduction. Zur Umsetzung der Stickoxide wird dem Abgas der Betriebsstoff AdBlue® beigemischt. Dieses wird im heißen Abgas in Ammoniak (NH3) umgewandelt, der wiederum mit den Stickoxiden zu harmlosem Stickstoff und Wasserdampf reagiert.

Wenn Andere abschalten, schalten wir ein!
HJS präsentiert als Mitinhaber des SCRT®-Patents eine Nachrüstlösung mit aktivem Thermomanagement. Die zum Patent angemeldete Lösung des etablierten Systemlieferanten HJS wurde entsprechend Erstausrüstungsanforderungen entwickelt und einem harten Testprogramm unterzogen. Durch aktives Thermomanagement ist das System funktionssicher – auch im anspruchsvollen Niedriglast, bzw. Rangierbetrieb. Durch zwei vernetzt wirkende Aktuatoren wird sichergestellt, dass durch die SCRT®-Technik immer die bestmögliche NOx Reduktion und eine robuste Partikelfilterregeneration realisiert wird – ohne dabei Einfluss auf den Motor zu nehmen.

HJS-Team auf der Innotrans in Berlin
Vom 18. bis 21. September 2018 steht das HJS-Team auf der Innotrans für Gespräche und Informationen rund um das Thema Railway Technology (Erstausrüstung und Nachrüstung für Motoren von Triebwagen) in Halle 17, Stand 112 zur Verfügung.

EnWave Announces Shipment of a Pharmaceutical Radiant Energy Vacuum Freeze-Dryer for Merck

EnWave Corporation (TSX-V:ENW | FSE:E4U) (“EnWave”, or the "Company" – http://www.commodity-tv.net/c/search_adv/?v=297852) announced today that it has successfully completed Factory Acceptance Testing and has shipped its first 9 kW cGMP Radiant Energy Vacuum (“REV™) pharmaceutical freeze-dryer designed for Merck, known as MSD outside the United States and Canada. The pharmaceutical REV™ machine is designed to meet cGMP standards and to rapidly freeze-dry vials containing pharmaceutical products.

Successful completion of Factory Acceptance Testing demonstrates that REV™ freeze-drying technology met certain throughput and capacity specifications, designated by Merck.

The successful completion of the Factory Acceptance Testing with Merck marks a significant milestone in the scaled-up commercialization of EnWave’s proprietary REVTM technology in the pharmaceutical sector.   Following installation, the equipment will undergo site acceptance testing prior to potential processing of pharmaceutical products using the technology.

Continuous processing of discrete dosage units of pharmaceutical products is sought by the pharmaceutical industry as it seeks more flexible and adaptable manufacturing processes. REV™ freeze drying provides a potential continuous drying platform to rapidly dry vaccines, monoclonal antibodies, therapeutic proteins, probiotics, enzymes, and small molecule therapeutics.

About EnWave

EnWave Corporation, a Vancouver-based advanced technology company, has developed Radiant Energy Vacuum (“REV™”) – an innovative, proprietary method for the precise dehydration of organic materials. EnWave has further developed patent-pending methods for uniformly drying and decontaminating cannabis through the use of REV™ technology, shortening the time from harvest to marketable cannabis products.

REV™ technology’s commercial viability has been demonstrated and is growing rapidly across several market verticals in the food, and pharmaceutical sectors including legal cannabis. EnWave’s strategy is to sign royalty-bearing commercial licenses with industry leaders in multiple verticals for the use of REV™  technology. The company has signed over twenty royalty-bearing licenses to date, opening up nine distinct market sectors for commercialization of new and innovative products. In addition to these licenses, EnWave has formed a Limited Liability Corporation, NutraDried Food Company, LLC, to develop, manufacture, market and sell all-natural cheese snack products in the United States under the Moon Cheese® brand. 

EnWave has introduced REV™ as the new dehydration standard in the food and biological material sectors: faster and cheaper than freeze drying, with better end product quality than air drying or spray drying. EnWave currently has three commercial REV™ platforms:

1. nutraREV® which is used in the food industry to dry food products quickly and at low-cost, while maintaining high levels of nutrition, taste, texture and colour;

2. powderREV® which is used for the bulk dehydration of food cultures, probiotics and fine biochemicals such as enzymes below the freezing point, and

3. quantaREV® which is used for continuous, high-volume low-temperature drying.

An additional platform, freezeREV®, is being developed as a new method to stabilize and dehydrate biopharmaceuticals such as vaccines and antibodies. More information about EnWave is available at www.enwave.net.

SGK Launches Shockwave with $20 Million Deployment of Hybrid Software’s Packaging Workflow

Matthews International’s subsidiary SGK, the leading global brand development, activation, and deployment company, has chosen its partner for the future. HYBRID Software and its CLOUDFLOW workflow solution will be used by SGK facilities worldwide. Earlier this year, SGK installed more than 400 seats of HYBRID’s PACKZ PDF editor in their production facilities while performing an extensive pilot program, code-named “Shockwave”, which tested PROOFSCOPE and CLOUDFLOW for live automated production in selected facilities in North America, Europe, and Asia. After more than 12 months of dedicated effort by SGK and HYBRID, the pilot program was a huge success and PROOFSCOPE and CLOUDFLOW have now been deployed for live production worldwide.

According to Joe Bartolacci, CEO of Matthews International, SGK’s search for a new workflow partner began two years ago at Drupa 2016. “Major brands and CPGs have been asking for faster turnaround, greater accuracy and global real-time visibility utilizing native PDF formats to help them manage their brands around the world. We knew that only SGK had the global scale to deliver this solution. Cloud-based infrastructure for workflow and file management systems was essential to our solution but not available off-the-shelf from any other industry partners. We began searching for a software company that would become a long-term partner with SGK, able to tightly integrate with the power of our new SAP system and our new end-to-end Service Delivery Platform, which will accelerate speed to market and improve efficiency at all levels of the packaging supply chain. We found this partner in HYBRID Software. We are now able to seamlessly manage our clients’ packaging workflow from our desktops to any printer in the world, giving our clients complete reliability and improved speed to market.”

Says Guido Van der Schueren, Chairman of HYBRID Software, “This project was the largest that HYBRID has ever undertaken. It required a tremendous commitment of resources from both SGK and HYBRID as well as a shared vision. SGK set a high bar for speed and quality that CLOUDFLOW was able to achieve because our development team received valuable insights from SGK throughout the process. This was not simply about replacing old software with new software. We needed the product to deliver a greater level of manufacturing automation and productivity across all SGK facilities. Together, we’re ready to lead the next wave of automated packaging production.”

ABOUT SGK

SGK is a leading global brand development, activation and deployment company that drives brand performance.
