LOD is a means of defining the extent to which model elements have been developed, from conception in the mind of the designer through to their construction and operation. Level of Development is a conceptual framework that attempts to address the fact that model elements develop at different rates during the design process. LOD describes the relative development of individual model elements in their journey from conception to realisation.

Testing Cloud application stability using the principles of Chaos Engineering

Article | March 26, 2020

Across the business landscape, we’re seeing a wholesale movement of services to the Cloud as companies wake up to the benefits of capacity and flexibility that accompany such a shift away from hosting systems on servers. While there are clear advantages to migrating to the cloud, there are challenges too – such as layers of added complexity. Testing these cloud-based systems to make sure they stand up under duress is important, but the heightened complexity of these environments means that the role of Quality Assurance has had to evolve accordingly.

3 IMPORTANT STEPS TO REVERSE ENGINEERING A PART

Article | March 26, 2020

Over the past 120 years, there has been a production of millions of machine parts and products worldwide. However, few of these products are still relevant over the years because of the technological advancement, but lots of old parts used in machines are still in use. When a part breaks down or malfunctions, it is usually replaced using a process known as reverse engineering. There are many things that can be learned from a machine or software, just from reverse engineering. This is because the concept behind the reverse engineering process is to break something down to help understand it, and the engineer can then build a copy or try to improve it. Furthermore, there is a need for a reverse engineering design process as the technology advances to ensure the existing manufacturing systems’ continuity. Reverse engineering is an important process for everybody as we will be forced to replace entire machines without it. In this article, we will break down everything you need to know about reverse engineering, from reverse engineering to reverse engineering processes.
