Thinking Through Testing™
When thinking about testing, it is generally understood that everything cannot be tested as well as it could be if time and money were unlimited. In the real world of project constraints and time-to-market concerns, any testing effort needs a strategy that creates an appropriate balance between quality, scope, budget, and schedule.
For each testing engagement, Silverpath examines the situation with the customer to find the "right-fit" approach. The "right-fit" is determined through deriving a tailored mapping of core best practices and techniques embodied in our service offerings to the customer's unique business needs and the context of their specific project, including consideration for project constraints such as budget and schedule, quality requirements, and risk tolerance.
Our core practices and techniques are built upon our "fitness for use" philosophy of quality, where the customer satisfaction of both the business and end-users determines whether the project was an overall success. The level of quality required to achieve that level of satisfaction is what determines the difference between a quality requirement and a quality goal. The resulting customized strategy to the testing effort captures this thoughtful approach to achieving better testing results.
Thinking Through Testing enables our customers to clearly articulate and successfully execute the quality plan that achieves their individual needs within their specific constraints.
