|Quality Assurance Methodology
Quality Assurance is a planned and systematic
pattern of all actions necessary to provide adequate confidence that
the software developed conforms to established technical standards
SVT has an exhaustive Quality Assurance Plan,
which can be implemented for every project. Our Quality Assurance
Plan (QAP) contains a checklist for activities that have to be carried
out to assure the quality of the project.
A Quality representative is assigned to the
project from the project proposal stage onwards.
The Quality representative reports to the Quality
Manager and not to the Project Manager. This representative is involved
in all the functions of the project like technical reviews, change
management, problem tracking, etc.
The Quality representative is responsible for
interacting with the team members to implement the quality procedures.
Performance measures provide management with
means of evaluating actual performance of the quality of the function
against the defined business and customer needs.
Performance measures provide:
- A target to be met
- A control point for evaluation
- A means for monitoring progress in meeting
quality objectives throughout the life cycle of the project
Some of the other items covered in the Quality Assurance Plan are:
- Risk and Contingency Planning
- Reviews and Audits
- Tools and Techniques
- Records, Collection. Maintenance and Retention
- Planning for implementation of Quality Assurance
- Configuration status accounting audit
- Technical reviews
