Elevate your testing with Keysight Eggplant Test's cutting-edge solution. Our technology harnesses the power of testing as a real user would, intelligently understanding interactive displays. It seamlessly integrates and automates end-to-end testing of product lifecycle management (PLM) systems, computer-aided design (CAD), manufacturing execution systems (MES), and enterprise resource planning (ERP) applications.

The business case for PLM test automation

Product lifecycle systems are critical, meaning errors, failures, and downtime significantly impact your business. Testing is essential to any successful PLM system. However, the pace of new releases, customizations, and upgrades to your PLM platform can increase test requirements exponentially. Manual testing is time-consuming, expensive, and not scalable. So, what is the solution?

Keyight Eggplant Test seamlessly navigates through various ecosystem user interfaces, including PLM, CAD, ERP, customer relationship management (CRM), or human capital management (HCM) systems. It effortlessly connects to databases, file systems, data stores, APIs, and more, ultimately integrating all these tools into one comprehensive automation approach. Imagine a single test updating your PLM system via a desktop user interface (UI), then seamlessly transitioning to the web version to ensure correct rendering and business logic execution.

Ensuring the reflected update is in the ERP system and confirming flawless execution of business logic across the entire IT ecosystem are critical steps. From legacy desktop systems to modern web and mobile applications, we test all PLM UI systems precisely and easily.

Not just limited to basic interactions, Keysight Eggplant Test controls intricate UI elements. We employ advanced visual recognition to understand complex 2D and 3D structures and accurately identify and assess visible artifacts. Keysight Eggplant Test can also conduct user experience timing testing to ensure that the application or system meets user expectations for speed and responsiveness, enhancing the overall user experience.

Typically, PLM testing relies on costly and time-consuming manual testing services, with firms spending millions for each PLM upgrade. Automation ensures that ecosystem updates seamlessly integrate without disrupting the supply chain while reducing the need for costly and time-consuming maintenance tasks. Neglecting updates, including essential security patches, risks severe consequences, such as forced updates due to security breaches, resulting in massive business disruptions. Keysight Eggplant Test mitigates this risk and accelerates the testing process, ensuring uninterrupted business operations.

Don't let manual testing hold you back from innovation and increased security — embrace automation as part of your software testing for a smoother, more efficient testing journey.

AI test generation

Keysight Eggplant is robust and can adapt to changes in the location and movement of all graphic elements, while identifying incorrect locations as needed. Our AI-assisted approach allows for any combination of pre-defined tests (through natural language-like scripting) and AI-generated test cases.

Enablement Augmentation Services

Interact with computer vision

Keysight Eggplant uses synthetic human capabilities to automate test cases for any application, connecting to screens just like a real user. This process includes testing the integrity of moving 3D images to easily construct a composite object and associate each part with the bill of materials (BOM) on the product lifecycle management application. Keysight Eggplant offers a unified approach, executing tests seamlessly across platforms, whether a PLM web app or a CAD desktop app.
