ORA, now part of Synopsys, was founded in 1963 as an engineering services company, serving the optical design needs of customers in aerospace and other demanding industries. Now, more than fifty years later, engineering continues to be an important part of our business, helping our clients, but also helping to make sure LightTools remains the most capable and best-tested illumination design software available.
Our team is large enough to devote resources to all aspects of software development, from planning to algorithm development to implementation. This includes the all-important discipline of testing to assure quality. We know that our customers count on us for correct results to critical problems, and LightTools has an excellent reputation for accuracy in the many critical optical calculations it performs. To maintain this quality, we perform extensive, multilevel testing.
Key quality processes
- Test cases developed in parallel with code
- Automatic test-case checking during development
- In-house testing by technical staff, including use by optical engineering staff
- Beta test periods at selected customer sites
