SharpThought™ Quality Management

The Alterion SharpThought™ program management process family provides independent management and process verification throughout the program life cycle. Within the scope of a program development and management effort, the SharpThought Quality Management processes are used to define and coordinate the execution of individual SharpThought processes.

Any program of significance does not exist in a vacuum. A program is created in a preexisting environment that includes the past (existing users, data, and interfaces), the present (desired expectations), and the future (long term vision). Satisfying the goals of all three entails providing a functional and usable product that meets the needs of the users, can interact with currently existing environments, and is sufficiently flexible in design to exist upon (and adapt to changes in) a planned vision. Providing a product meeting these goals therefore entails satisfying three sets of quality standards.

The Alterion SharpThought processes implement particular activities necessary to ensure the maintenance of quality throughout the program life cycle. The SharpThought Quality Management process provides a framework for the execution of these processes. Through the use of the Quality Management framework, individual SharpThought processes are managed and executed in a coordinated manner, and results are communicated between parties in an appropriate form. The Quality Management processes ensure that a consistent and thorough level of quality is maintained throughout the program life cycle.
