Has EASE been verified or certified and does AFMG implement quality assurance programs for software development?
AFMG develops software on the current state-of-the-art level.
EASE’s algorithms have repeatedly been tested to perform as intended. Sufficient proof has been published in renowned magazines and textbooks. For example, the latest paper addressing speech intelligibility can be found here: http://www.aes.org/e-lib/browse.cfm?elib=16985
AFMG has implemented internal procedures to assure quality and continually enhance code structure, performance etc. However, AFMG does not comply with ISO and IEEE standards as this would unnecessarily increase time to market and prices.
As with any simulation tool, the key to a relevant result is the understanding of program and theory and the correct entry of data by the user. Also accurate loudspeaker data is necessary for good simulations.
