360-Degree Inspection of Unoriented Bottles Helps Ensure Highest Possible Levels of Quality for Tabasco® Brand Pepper Sauce
Lévis and St-Bruno-de-Montarville (CANADA). Alizem is pleased to announce that it has recently entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Québec-based Marinvent regarding software certification aspects of its newly released Embedded Motor Control Software for Critical Applications. Marinvent is a recognized leader in the field of software certification of mission-critical systems with an extensive expertise in aerospace systems.
“Offering energy-efficient and reliable embedded motor control software is one thing, but qualifying this software to reach all safety and regulations standards mandatory for mission-critical applications is a complete other thing. By working with Marinvent, we leverage more than 30 years of experience in this very narrow field of software quality engineering to provide peace of mind to our customers and keeping them focused in reaching their market and business objectives” said Dr. Marc Perron, president at Alizem.
“Marinvent is always on the look-out for innovative companies with aerospace products that serve a gap in the market. Alizem’s Embedded Motor Control Software product certainly addresses a need that we see to find ways to reduce the size, weight and power consumption of the increasing number of electric motors being used in today’s aircraft, so it is with great pleasure that we are partnering with them from a certification perspective”, said Phil Cole, VP-Business Development at Marinvent.
