  abstract =     "In this paper we present a bespoke live system in
                 commercial use that has been implemented with
                 self-improving properties. During business hours it
                 provides overview and control for many specialists to
                 simultaneously schedule and observe the rehabilitation
                 process for multiple clients. However in the evening,
                 after the last user logs out, it starts a self-analysis
                 based on the day's recorded interactions and the
                 self-improving process. It uses Search Based Software
                 Testing (SBST) techniques to generate test data for
                 Genetic Improvement (GI) to fix any bugs if exceptions
                 have been recorded. The system has already been under
                 testing for 4 months and demonstrates the effectiveness
                 of simple test data generation and the power of GI for
                 improving live code.",
