Abstract [en]

There are several ways of conducting software testing where some may include users and others may include personnel whose work task is to execute test on systems. Although most developers and project managers understand the point of testing the system, it is not always being done and the most common reason is that there is no time for it. However, this is a false assumption as it may instead cause some bugs in the system that would not have been there in the first place if tests had been there to prevent bugs in the code.

My purpose for this thesis was to find suggestions for changes in the development process in an ongoing project used by Acino and Svenska Försäkringsfabriken in order to increase the quality of the system used. In this thesis, I have approached the purpose by pursuing a case study of the two companies through observation and interviews. By doing this I acquired the relevant information to make suggestions for change. In my case study, I have analysed the work process, which includes the types of testing and development conducted on the system. Through this I have found suggestions for changes that can generate better quality of both the system and work process.

The changes that I've suggested are directed against both the code that the system consists of and the work processes used by the two companies. While the suggestions I have found is not entirely new for the companies it is something that’s not included in either the code or process, but my hope is that I have created an awareness which could ultimately generate a positive change.
