SASQAG's Next Monthly Meeting:
Process Engineering, Documentation, and Evaluation
A lively romp through process capability, documentation, and measurement without getting your feet too wet.
Many standards, initiatives, and measurement programs rely on the identification and documentation of work processes with the goal of improving quality, cost, schedule performance, productivity, and etc. The problem has been how much of a process needs to be documented to make it a “capable” and “managed” process. If we improved it, how would we know? Why does there seem to be a “disconnect” between process improvement initiatives, quality assurance, and the real work of getting software out the door? This presentation gives you a set of tools that can be used at a project, program, organizational, and/or enterprise level to incrementally define and measure processes to identify and eliminate waste and rework. You will probably never look at your washing machine the same way again!
