When you visit Schiphol Airport and you’ve took the train to Amsterdam, you may have seen him shining: a LED Bar of more than 330 meters! This bar informs train passengers: where will the train stop and where are the doors? The reason to implement this bar is  spread the crowd over the platform in order to avoid dangerous situations on the platform and find a better spot to enter the train safely.

To achieve this situation an innovative product needed to be developed. In one year we had to find partners and with the partner and a suspension construction, the hardware and software of the LED-bar and control software needed to be designed, developed, tested and connected with also the implementation on train station Schiphol Airport.

The presentation will tell you everything about our journey to develop and test such an unique product: – How to develop a minimum valuable product, suited for only train station Schiphol Airport? How to integrate the different parts on a busy train station? What were the (product) risks and how did we mitigate the risk?

Key Takeaways:

  • Which (test) problems must you concur to reach the minimal valuable product?
  • How to deal with a situation where a supplier has the most expertise of your product?
  • How to set up a representative integration test and how to perform this test on a busy location as a train station?

About Ard Kramer

Ard is software tester from the Netherlands and he is working for ImproveQS. He uses the title Qualisopher which stands for someone “who loves truth and wisdom and at the same time is decisive to improve man and his environment” . He is interested in the world around us, to see what we can learn and apply in software testing. That is one of the reason why I tell stories in books and at (test) conferences such as EuroSTAR, Expo:QA, Belgium Testing Days, CAST and Testnet conferences.

About Dennis Schouten

Dennis is responsible as Test manager for systems that generate information for train travelers. He is working at the Dutch Railways where he works in a complex environment. The LED-bar is a part of this complex environment and architecture, therefore he worked closely together with Ard to get the project to a successful end.
