I am looking for a particular kind of software, where a department can track the progress of QA testing of a certain physical product, and also be able to track issues for a particular product too.
All should be searchable with a serial number that the physical device has.

I dont know what that kind of software is called, and I dont know where to start searching for it either :P

@selea That sounds like a regular old ticketing system. The same kind that tech support would use to track tech issues.


Yeah, I have checked a few like Kanbans - but they dont have a real search and stuff.
We need to keep track of tens of thousands of devices and keep it for decades

@selea That really sucks. Maybe a sqlite based application might best suit you, but finding it will be easier said than done.


Maybe, I'm not sure, you can use a Kanban for it, like Kanboard or other similar softwares.


I thought about it, but it would not be ideal actually. Since we manufacture tens of thousands of devices that we need to keep track of and keep the history for 7-10 years I think issue trackers can be used for that with custom fields like Redmine (I think it has this functionality built-in, but if not, there is a plugin for it, i used Redmine like 5ish years ago last time) or Bugzilla.


Not a bad idea actually, I already have Bugzilla up and running. Maybe that would work.

Sucks that it does not look good on phone thou :P

@selea perhaps build something simple with Django? Or do you want something existing?

@bjoreman @selea I'm haply when I've been able to do a decent PowerPoint these days πŸ˜‰

@bjoreman @selea and apparently I'm having issues spelling short words 😁

GitHub's "Project" feature which is Kanban board integrates well with the issue tracker. You can search and add issues to the board, and also set up rules to move cards automatically to "Done".

@selea might be "product management software" as a starting point for searching it
