Our software engineering tasks are performed in accordance with a project's defined software process. Appropriate methods and tools are used to build and maintain the software products. The software plans, tasks, and products are traceable to the system requirements allocated to software.
Each project implements a documented plan to bring their defined software process under quantitative control. They analyze the software process, identify any special causes of performance variation, and bring their process performance within well-defined limits. Sensitive data regarding an individual's performance are protected and access to the data is appropriately controlled.
Each project's software quality management activities support our commitment to improve the quality of each new release of our software products. Projects define and collect the measurements used for software quality management based on the project's defined software process. Every project defines the quality goals for their software products and monitors its progress towards them.
