Our project metric process is as follows

 

Define the metric

We define and outline the scope of project metrics at various stage of the project to ensure accurate assessment and management of project performance. Our project metrics are defined after a through analysis of the process and this helps us set our goals in a realistic manner and achieve them every time.

 

Analyze the metric

We analyze the data derived of the metric in a systematic and structured way to ensure consistent documentation over a period. This helps in analyzing metrics, which have a consistent baseline over a period and deliver measurable and action oriented results. Our in-house methods sort and assign data based on specific parameters and to prevent duplication of data captures and a metric analysis, which is realistic and accurate. The data is analyzed using various Statistical Quality Control tools like control charts to draw inferences at the project and organizational levels. The results are used to improve the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC).

 

Quality Control

An organization without specific quality control objectives cannot survive in the long run and deliver consistent results across various verticals. Our teams of in-house QC specialists ensure that the highest levels of quality control are maintained. This ensures that the final product meets the exact requirements of our clients. Our experienced MT analyzes all the content and detects errors or discrepancies in the content. This ensures that our clients are able to rely on our QC efforts and get consistent results across all types of deliverables.

 

Delivery timelines

One of our most comprehensive metric is to measure delivery performance. The actual progress versus the planned progress is tracked and the performance data is analyzed. The timelines are clearly defined and measured. We also schedule adequate contingency planning in various areas to ensure that time lines are met and compensate for unexpected delays or input shortfalls during the process cycle.

 

Finally, after the document is proofread for any English or typographical errors. This ensures that the final product caters to the client’s demands and needs without leaving room for errors.
