Software Quality Assurance

Course Format: Online / Virtual Classroom / Webinar
School/Trainer: ProTech Professional Technical Services, Inc.

Software Quality Assurance (SQA) is an essential discipline for organizations that develop and/or maintain software that either supports their internal operations or is the product that they offer in the marketplace. Developing and implementing SQA within an organization is such a challenging task that many organizations, even after repeated attempts, get no further than implementing traditional software testing.This course is an introduction to SQA from a practical perspective rather than an exposition of a specific theory or school of SQA. The material presented is immediately applicable in any software development environment irrespective of industry or development methodology. The course describes the relationship between software quality assurance, software quality management and software quality control (software testing) and how an organization moves through the stages of starting with a basic testing program to a mature organization where SQA is embedded within a corporate culture of quality. In addition to providing an SQA road map, including a discussion of pitfalls and best practices, the course also explores the other factors that are critical in developing an... [Read More]

Quality Assurance and Quality Control

Course Format: Online / Virtual Classroom / Webinar
School/Trainer: Skillsoft

There is no question that project quality is essential in ensuring project success; a quality management plan identifies quality requirements and provides all project stakeholders with documented guidelines for delivering a quality product or service.

The quality management plan must be audited and measured consistently and efficiently to ensure that it is both adequate and adhered to. In this course, learners will be given an overview of the quality assurance and quality control processes within the project quality management knowledge area. They’ll be introduced to best practices outlined in A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) ?Fourth Edition published by the Project Management Institute (PMI®). Specifically, learners will be introduced to the tools and techniques used in quality assurance, such as quality audits and performing a process analysis.
