    Leading American Oil & Gas company, offering wide range of positive displacement meters, turbine meters, ultrasonic flow meters & flow computers.


    • Client’s one of key product line is “Flow Computer”, which is used for pre-set loading, unloading and batching for trucks, railcars and ships and used as liquid metering product

    • Due to the complex nature of this product, client was faced with huge challenges in terms of required efforts and time in executing all the tests manually during each release. Hence, client was looking for test automation solution to accelerate the product testing

    • Client selected Softdel as a test partner considering its overall experience in testing and in-house developed test automation framework


    • Development of python based test scripts for test automation

    • Support test suite feature for batch execution of test cases

    • Support for Modbus TCP/IP and Modbus serial interface
    • Test execution logs and reports

    – Functional test support :
    communication protocols, I/O functionality, volume accumulation, API tables, flow control functions, injector functions, card reader functionality, printer functionality, UI tests, Automation of Manufacturing Test Set up

    – Non-functional test support :
    stress tests, longevity tests

    Value Benefits

    • Handled test iterations quickly and smoothly especially at regression stage
