Savigent Software Inc., a leading provider of event-driven manufacturing operations management software, announce the release of version 7.0 of the Savigent suite of products. Version 7.0 of the suite delivers enhancements, including advanced administration features, improved developer and engineer usability and enhanced reporting capabilities. This update of Savigent’s software suite introduces the all-new Evaluator Framework (also known as Evaluator) – a way to exercise and test workflows and related systems.
The Evaluator Framework allows users to easily create a wide spectrum of tests (unit, system, integration and regression) for their workflow applications. Evaluators are integrated into Savigent Workflow, which supports both simple and complex development environments – including multiple users. The new Evaluators automate the tasks of exercising and testing client workflows making it easier to create performant, accurate automations of their processes. Evaluators may be used alongside a staging server, providing complete end-to-end system/functional tests. Additionally, Evaluators enable mocking or simulated overrides to test certain boundary conditions or where the real data is not available or undesirable. Multiple test conditions can be set up using click and select options for testing any data within a workflow.
Multiple Evaluators can be grouped into an Evaluator Plan, this grouping approach allows for tests to be organized and run based on anything from capabilities to system boundaries. Much like a Workflow Application, these plans help with organizing and managing Evaluators. The overall summary and details of status (pass or fail) is provided in an easy to review chart.
The scheduling functionality ensures Evaluators and Plans can be scheduled to run on a regular basis providing a great way for customers to have automated regression testing or simply provide a means to schedule different activities.
“Savigent Software developed its suite of products to address the challenges of workflow automation, real-time data collection and analysis, and systems integration,” says Jimmy Asher, Vice President of Product Strategy for Savigent Software. “This update will allow manufacturers to better test their applications and completes a full lifecycle for our DevOps platform. This maximizes return on investment.”
Version 7.0 also provides performance updates to Savigent Workflow, a controlled system for workflow automation, and Savigent Historian, a context-aware process data historian. With open connectivity to a wide variety of manufacturing assets and systems and the ability to distribute functionality as required, the Savigent software suite enables users to produce products more efficiently, effectively and economically.
