Software Testing for Intended Quality (STX)

STX is a three-year international research project on software development, testing and quality. The STX objective is to increase productivity in software engineering by lowering testing and development costs. The research goal is to explain how software development, testing and quality depend on one another. The STX results allow companies to produce targeted level and type of quality more efficiently.

STX is carried out by the Software Engineering Laboratory at Lappeenranta University of Technology together with partners from industry and international academia. STX is funded by the Finnish Funding Agency for Technology and Innovation (Tekes) and the project partners. STX started in August 2011.
