The QAIassist Integrated Methodology® is scalable and can be customized - organizations rely on its flexibility to help them deliver and maintain their products, projects and IT efficiencies. It is applicable in a host of environments (development, application maintenance and support) and can be leveraged using a wide range of IT delivery (waterfall, agile, spiral, RAD, etc) approaches - it can be implemented in whole or in parts.
The QAIassist Integrated Methodology® is scalable to meet the specific needs of SMB's and offers a robust set of templates and sample deliverables - it is fully compatible with all industry leading project management tools.
The QAIassist Integrated Methodology® suite provides project teams a tool they can leverage to consistently deliver quality products/projects on time and within budget. It is deliverable based and incorporates the three primary IT (project management, software development, software testing) disciplines. It includes a set of sample deliverables (all lifecycles) that project team members can use as examples for completing their own project deliverables - it also includes a set of instruction filled deliverable templates (all lifecycles) that project team members can utilize to populate the specifics for their own project.
The QAIassist Integrated Methodology® acts as a repeatable organizational process relied upon by senior management, business stakeholders/users, IT development and maintenance staff to deliver applications and IT functionality. It provides the foundation from which organizational "quality assurance", "IT performance metrics", and "cross functional IT training" can be attained.
QAIassist IT Integrated Methodology® - an overview
The following documents provide a context and overview of the QAIassist Integrated IT Methodology®
"Delivering the Project" - Project Management Methodology
Projects can suffer and stagnate for a number of reasons - lack of official ownership, project scope creep, limited requirements definition, ineffective planning and status oversight, allocation of resources, issue and risk management to name a few. In the majority of cases, these deficiencies can be addressed by incorporating a higher degree of project management. The QAIassist Integrated Methodology® provides business stakeholders, end- users, project managers, and project team members the structure and deliverables they require to effectively initiate, plan, execute, and deliver any project on time and within budget.

"Delivering the Application" - Software Development Methodology
Far too often projects are delayed or re-worked due to a number of recurring deficiencies - lack of defining the business requirements, not designing the application to satisfy those business requirements, not building the application according to the design. In most cases, these deficiencies can be resolved by ensuring business requirements, architectural design, and specifications (functional and technical) are documented, communicated and shared amongst project team members. The QAIassist Integrated Methodology® provides business managers, business analysts, technical architects, systems analysts, programmers, and testers a means to clearly establish the business requirements, design the technical solution, and develop the code for the application - delays and rework are avoided. The QAIassist Integrated Methodology® provides a scalable cost effective structure and deliverables that can be used to define, design, and construct software applications - it is applicable for both development and maintenance environments.

"Delivering the Quality" - Software Testing Methodology
Frequently, projects fall behind schedule during development - this results in shortening the amount of time and effort available to test the user functionality. Applications are routinely "thrown over the fence" to the Quality Assurance and Testing resources with the expectation that the application is going into production on a specific date. Testing that was originally scheduled to take one month gets whittled down to one week and applications are migrated into the production environment without thorough testing. The result, an unstable application requiring additional rework and re-testing. In almost every case, these deficiencies could be alleviated by applying rigor to the testing discipline to ensure applications released into the production environment meet the business needs and specifications before they are migrated into the production environment. The QAIassist Integrated Methodology® provides QA managers/leads, analysts, programmers and testers the structure and deliverables required to ensure the application being delivered adheres to authorized requirements and specifications - it is applicable for both development and maintenance environments.
