Your testing is only as good as your requirements

Don’t get out of Scope

We can assist you to define and implement industry best practices in Requirements Definition, Requirements Engineering and Requirements Management.

Eliminate Scope Creep

Studies indicate that poor requirements management practices create unnecessary project costs and can cause overruns of as much as 60% in both on time and budget and organisations with poor business analysis capabilities had three times as many project failures as successes. If you can’t define the right requirements and manage scope, a project is likely to go off track.

Define and Document your Requirements

Equally, for an effective testing process, properly defined and managed requirements to test for are clearly an imperative. You can make the testing phase more efficient and cut project overruns by reducing the number of inaccurate, incomplete and omitted requirements and linking requirements to test plans and test cases for traceability.

Choose a Methodology

Using our proven requirements definition and management methodology, TestPro can assist you to define and implement a Requirements Definition and Management Process and provide supporting tools as necessary. Leveraging our extensive project experience, we can help you to build a solid foundation for your project using recognised industry standards and tools. The solution is flexible and scalable and supports achievement of project deadlines whilst ensuring high quality and relevant requirements are established and maintained.
