Air Force Targets Software Quality with McCabe IQ
4/25/06 - WARWICK, RI - Eglin Air Force Base’s 96th Communications Group utilizes McCabe Software’s leading Software Quality Management solution to improve the quality of their cutting edge visualization applications, which automatically generate 3D polygonal terrain databases from NIMA DETD imagery. McCabe IQ’s comprehensive software metric and test coverage technology has become a vital part of the data collection, recording, extraction, reduction, analysis, and reporting procedures at Eglin.
The 96th Communications Group at Eglin maintains vast amounts of source code. Thus, it was vital to acquire a software solution to ensure test coverage of all the functional and static libraries along with programs and subroutines in the inventory.
As an SEI CMM Level 5 organization, the 96th Communications Group has stringent software metric and test coverage requirements. McCabe's is the only software development tool of its kind capable of meeting the rigid requirements for DOD test facilities for DT&E, OT&E, AFSOC, and AFOTEC organizations.
“McCabe was identified as the only source that meets the quality standards required for Eglin’s mission critical 3D visualization application,” says David Belhumeur, McCabe CEO. “It was essential that they deploy a tool suite that facilitates rapid development and comprehensive software testing in order to meet current and future requirements of the Air Force.”
McCabe IQ is a multi-platform, multi-language, software quality management suite which visualizes the complexity of source code and provides a host of metrics to measure quality. McCabe IQ is also used to identify what areas of code have been tested, resulting in improved test plans. Its enterprise reporting engine provides organizations with quality and testedness reports scaleable from one project to the entire enterprise.
