TotalQA model and methods
Successful projects need solid methods that cover all aspects of the project. Symbio’s extensive experience has led us to develop the TotalQA model, which is our way of ensuring effective QA and testing tasks over the product life-cycle. Whatever the focus of the task, we define preventive, detective and corrective actions for it. This allows us to better plan, control and fix possible issues.
HOW WE DO IT
The TotalQA model is used by all our professionals – this way we can guarantee that we are on top of things and the project reaches the quality targets. Whether you need help with establishing release criteria, analyzing requirements, conducting audits, defining and following metrics, training your personnel or selecting a vendor, we help you succeed.
