Quality = Control

Tuesday, February 23, 2021

At NexTrain we strive to make our app as accurate as possible.  Here we're using a popular BI tool to check the latitude and longitude of stations relative to thier real world locations.

Our station database extends across the entire UK.  But wait, what's this?  It looks like Kintore station has gone for a swim! 🏊‍♂️

Not to worry, we've spotted the issue, the longitude is wrong, its +2.205 when it should be -2.205.  Oops!  Meantime we'd better call the coastguard 👀

We use another popular tool Jira to log and track issues, and an Agile methodology to organise our releases. The issue is logged as NEX-185,  something to fix in the next sprint! 🕷🥾

One more way in which we're managing quality control for NexTrain

p.s. Did anyone spot Dublin Ferryport? Its our only Irish station 🇮🇪
