Since 6 January 2020 we (Chris and Flo) have been part of the Data Manager Trade Team, which is located at the Cologne site. In the beginning we were shown the location and afterwards we got an overview of the team. Afterwards our supervisor gave us an insight into her activities as a Quality Assurance Engineer. She explained to us which programs she works with and what to pay attention to.
Afterwards we started right away, we got our access data for TecDoc Catalogue 3.0 and were allowed to start testing immediately, because that is the main task of Quality Assurance (QA). QA distinguishes between manual and automated testing. First we deal with manual testing before moving on to automated testing later. QA deals a lot with the testing of applications and programs to find errors, the so-called bugs. Together with other colleagues we drove to the city center to the cathedral on Wednesday evening. After a short walk we found a nice little restaurant where we finished the evening with some cocktails. All in all, we got a good insight into the Cologne location and QA so far and we are looking forward to our further time in Cologne.
