Quality Assurance Services are:
Quality Assurance Management – helping you plan and
manage all project quality assurance activities. We will use the Verification and Validation (V&V) process described above
or use your own project QA practices.
Project Quality Assurance Resourcing – helping you define project QA resource needs and staffing your project with the right
people. We will provide you with a QA manager, reviewers/inspectors, testers, test tool implementers, metrics and test administrators
(defect trackers & reporters), Systems Configuration Management (SCM) team members, etc. Depending on the size and complexity
of your project and availability of our staff, some of the skills required on your QA team may be combined in key individuals.
Based on availability of your own QA staff, we can also provide mentors for your staff in these skill areas.
Project Quality Assurance Best
Practices – helping you assess
your current project quality assurance practices and design and implement new QA practices based on a combination of your
own and industry best practices (drawing on IEEE software engineering and QA standards and other sources). The end result
will be a best practices library tailored for your organization and culture and reusable for all of your projects. The library
will contain the processes, templates, and tool linkages necessary for you to plan, execute, and close out all of your project
QA efforts. We will help you transition your staff to these new practices by providing the training and mentoring you need.
Quality Assurance Training – helping you assess your QA training needs and implement the best fit mentoring and training
curriculum for your team. Training can be made available for all of the QA methods and tools in your best practices library.

o Software and system testing
