In Switzerland the COSMIC organization is represented by Thomas Fehlmann.
Thomas Fehlmann is a senior expert in software metrics and testing, a Lean Six Sigma Black Belt for lean and agile software development and promoter of customer-oriented product design and testing.

He uses software size metrics since the 1980ies and spent most of his professional life as a development or quality manager for software organizations. As such, he has led a few companies to global market dominance using Quality Function Deployment (QFD) and Six Sigma for Software. He has run the Euro Project Office since 1999 and is internationally recognized as QFD expert, where he received the Akao Prize in 2001, and as software metrics expert. Since 2016, Thomas has been an academic member of the Athens Institute for Education and Research.

From 2003 to 2018, he was chair of SwiSMA, the Swiss Software Metrics Association, from 2012 to 2019 member of the DASMA Board and 2013 to 2018 vice-president of ISBSG. His current endeavor is promoting COSMIC for test metrics and developing Autonomous Real-time Testing (ART). ART is used for testing Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) applications, combining COSMIC test metrics with Combinatory Logic, Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP), and QFD.

Thomas is a frequent presenter at conferences on topics including Six Sigma, QFD, software quality, software testing, project management, software engineering and software metrics.
