A way to grade your Project, reduce your Backlog and a Predictive hint

Some of our tasks as test engineers or as test managers are to find the path(s) that will lead to effective results when it comes to the quality of the products and projects that we’re involved with. This talk was made to show the need to reduce quality risks by analyzing the typical software issues that might impact the quality of our products or projects. It will also point out where we hurt our businesses the most and try to deal with that by granting our projects/products with grade and show constant improvement over time.

In this speech you’ll be able to get to know a bit more about the ODC model and the Impact classifications that it holds; as well as how to grade your projects. You will be able to do that by collecting information about the software issues that were found over time so you can predict what will be on your next release and where to put a focus, in order to reduce risks that will impact your business badly. I’ll share real case studies and show how this can be assisted, as well as ways to preserve it in an on-going mode.
