”I have tested ForceProof in a testing apparatus that allows us to simulate the loading and unloading stresses of a paperboard core inside of a paper roll, in addition to regular load testing. … Our criteria were safety, versatile functionality, and easy usability. We also invested a significant amount of time in testing before implementation.
I have extensive experience in using similar software in product development and testing, as well as in scientific research. In 2004, I completed my doctoral thesis, … In that study, I conducted numerous tests using various types of material testing machines, including a similar tester to the one on which ForceProof was recently installed. The software for the previous hardware was developed by a different party, so I have a good basis for comparison. …
… You also had to create custom add-ons to manage, for example, the operation of the rotation motor used in testing in sync with the rest of the loading equipment. We also had very high safety requirements.
The user-friendliness of ForceProof was highly valued since the machine had to be operable with a reasonably short training period while ensuring safety. All user-related risk factors had to be minimized. Some adjustments were made to the program and system during testing, but the end result is highly successful.
In my opinion, ForceProof reflects a philosophy of user-friendliness and simplicity that others could learn from. The machine allows for versatile testing in a safe manner, with a logical and simple user interface. Other similar testing programs are often unpleasantly complex and confusing, especially for less experienced users. Therefore, I see clear potential for this software to excel in competition, particularly in terms of user-friendliness.
… I believe this program should be maintained, further developed, and actively marketed as a versatile, customizable, and user-friendly option for the needs of both science and industry.”
