Quality assurance

Quality plays a key role in the added value and success of your company

A particular challenge in the digital transformation is to successfully deliver software or products in general at high speed and high quality at the same time.

To this end, holistic quality assurance must be implemented in the organization and in the projects and product developments. This includes the expertise of the employees as well as suitable and practiced methods and processes, including their continuous monitoring and improvement. Tool support for the various quality assurance measures is also of particular importance here. Quality is more than just compliance with guidelines and standards – it plays a key role in the added value and success of your company.

We are an interdisciplinary team that combines enthusiasm for quality assurance and experience from a large number of projects. Take advantage of our many years of expertise to find pragmatic and appropriate solutions for your individual challenges.

Sub-areas of quality assurance

In our publicly accessible project database you will find a large number of projects, e.g. for the following topics: Test automation, test management, software testing and software quality.

The various quality assurance activities must be carefully planned and managed. Clearly defined key figures form the basis for management. Suitable processes must be used for this, and the use of suitable tools is also necessary in larger projects.

The key figures defined in the planning must be recorded and evaluated on an ongoing basis. In the event of deviations from the target status, measures may have to be initiated and corrections made to the planning.

The processes used must be continuously “put to the test” and adapted if necessary. The aim is to continuously improve activities and processes.

Templates for important project artifacts and checklists (e.g. for reviews and test case creation and execution) are an important support for quality assurance measures. They consolidate empirical knowledge for the structured, efficient and reproducible implementation of these measures. Standards define “recognized rules of technology” and promote the uniformity of products and processes. Depending on the industry and product, different standards must be adhered to during project implementation.

Test automation helps to significantly improve the development and life cycle of a software solution. As release cycles are getting shorter and testing efforts are increasing, automated tests are often more efficient than manual tests – they run faster and more reliably, can be repeated at any time and bugs and anomalies can be identified promptly.

A variety of tools are used for the development, testing and operation of software in order to support and document the associated activities. The selection, introduction and support of a suitable tool is of great importance for the efficiency and quality of the development and testing process as well as the operation of software.

A variety of static methods (e.g. reviews) and dynamic methods (black box and white box) can be used for this purpose. These must be selected and used on a project-specific basis, which requires in-depth expertise in the respective processes.

Different roles with very different qualification profiles are required for the various quality assurance measures and tasks. The respective employees must be trained and further educated through suitable measures. An important option here is, of course, training, which should be supplemented by certifications (e.g. according to ISQTB).
