August GIT For Industry Test Event


Summary of August GIT For Industry (GFI) Test Event

The August Test Event saw the completion of all the GBCS Use Cases. The remaining tests were quite complicated and took a fair amount of time to complete. Between them, the manufacturers have tested the entire list of GBCS Use Cases after this last event.

Using the GFI tool, release candidate 1, for the test event the participants provided some good feedback on the tool. Participants commented on how the tool was easy to use through the graphical interface and its reporting functionality was thought to be excellent.

A high level summary of the event is below.

  • 2 GSME were brought to the event.
  • 2 Manufacturers took part.
  • 26 Use Cases were tested during the event
  • 18 Use Cases were passed.
  • All Use Cases have been attempted (not including alerts as GFI does not support alerts).
  • 27 Use Case out the entire GBCS list have not achieved a pass by at least one manufacturer over all the events so far.

Failures seen in the August event were mainly due to the interpretation of the GBCS standard.

September's event will be between the 22nd and 24th of September and will focus on the 27 Use Cases that have not received a pass to date.
