Quality Management

Quality challenges will directly impact your organization’s ability to succeed. As the volume and complexity of software in your products continues to increase, the risks associated with low software quality need to be mitigated.

Poor quality can drive cost and schedule overruns; it can negatively impact customer satisfaction or confidence; it not only increases your management overhead but can also expose your organization to significant risk. To improve the quality of the software you develop or deliver, you must understand the impacts of software quality throughout your organization as well as the means to control and improve quality.

The table below lists common challenges that impact software quality, along with PTC Integrity's capabilities that will help you solve them.

 

Issue PTC Integrity Solution Capability and Benefits
Process Inefficiency and Waste
Quality and processes are linked inextricably. Good, enforceable process leads to good quality. Automation also plays a major role in the cost and time to achieve better quality.
  • End-to-end process automation and enforcement
  • Comprehensive metrics dashboards identify bottlenecks 
  • Lean and Agile concepts drive out waste.

Late Cycle Rework
Errors introduced during requirements definition early in the lifecycle produce as much as 40% of the rework on the average project. Quality must be "baked in" from the beginning.
  • Improved capture of accurate and complete requirements early in the development cycle
  • Immediate propagation of changes upstream AND downstream
  • Better collaboration and communication with a single source of truth
Inability to Manage Growing Product Lines
When each variant is treated as a unique product, change management, defect management, and validation must be duplicated across products. This can create many quality issues as resources are spread thin.
  • Advanced reuse of all lifecycle assets including features, requirements, code, test cases, test results, etc.
  • Ability to perform rapid impact analysis across all product variants and product lines
  • Automated propagation of changes and fixes across applicable variants ensures quality across product lines
Disconnected Tools and Repositories
Data redundancy, siloed processes, and disconnected tools lead to significant manual intervention and with that comes a high percentage of preventable errors.
  • Single platform for managing all activities and assets
  • Enterprise integration gateway to ensure assets are accessible and relate-able while reducing data redundancy
