Improving Testing with Process Assessments

Robert Topolski, Intel Corporation

Fast development cycles, distributed architectures, code reuse, and developer productivity suites make it imperative that we improve our software test efficiency. A process assessment is one approach to begin an improvement program.

  • What process assessments are available?
  • How do you conduct an assessment?
  • How do you guard against incorrect information?
  • How do you know what to improve first?
  • How can you make successful improvements without negatively impacting your current work?

Learn the answers to these questions and more from Intel's experiences using the Test Process Improvement (TPI?) model as a basis for assessments. See example scores, improvement suggestions, and adopted actions. Hear about the high points and low points of using this process, and take away a comparison of the TPI? model with the CMMI Level 3 key process area.

  • A case study using the TPI? model for process assessments
  • The results and benefits of a test process assessment
  • Buy-in, participation, prioritization, and controlled change during and after the assessment
