Software Testing

SERVICES - SOFTWARE QUALITY ASSURANCE

The Time Quantum Software Quality Assurance division provides independent software testing services based on a number of different engagement models.

Independent third party testing brings objectivity, rigor and transparency to the testing and defect-reporting process.
  • Customers can compress time-to-market by outsourcing parallel activities in the product life cycle.
  • Customers can reduce costs by deploying a cost-effective onsite - offshore delivery model.
  • Customers gain through the insight and experience of career testers.
  • Several aspects of testing, though mission critical, are non-core to a company's business model, and hence outsourcing the function allows the customer to devote more resources to core, mission-critical activities.

Testing lifecycle require different test skills (manual execution, automation, regression, compliance, sustained engineering, etc.). Outsourcing can ensure the right expertise is leveraged at the right time for the right effort without impact on internal resources.

The Engagement models are:

The Assignment Model

TQ provides a properly skilled and structured team for a given testing assignment. The team will have a hands-on manager plus whatever necessary skilled resources such as test analysts, testers, junior testers that are deemed to be required by TQ. The client will provide the user requirements specifications and will either provide the test cases or will require that TQ develops the necessary test cases as part of the assignment. Pricing is based on the number of test cases and test iterations required by the client.

The Focussed Team model

TQ provides a properly skilled and structured team for a given testing function. The team will have a hands-on manager plus whatever necessary skilled resources such as test analysts, testers, junior testers that are deemed to be required by TQ. In its simplest form the client then sources test requirements and the attendant test cases which are then passed on to the team for execution. There are, however, many different ways in which this service can be configured with more or less of the total process as part of the teams deliverables. Pricing is based on the test case throughput requirement of the client.

The Point-Skills model

TQ provides properly skilled individuals according to the requirements of the client. Pricing is usually on a time and materials basis.
