EMPIRICAL INDUSTRIAL STUDY OF THE COOPERATION OF TESTING AND DESIGN DEPARTMENTS
In the literature, information recirculation is required to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of product development. The aim of this study was to investigate the state of the art of recirculation of testing knowledge in the industrial practice. 40 persons were interviewed. The information relevant for the engineers in design or testing departments was identified. Within the field of participants, it can be stated that the recirculation of testing knowledge in product development should be improved in many cases. The reasons for an insufficient use of testing knowledge were presented.
