Why Process Matters

Why Process Matters

SENTEL proudly notes that we are CMMI-DEV Level 2 and 3 appraised and ISO 9000:2015 certified. We foster a culture of process improvement at every level of the company. But what value does that bring to our customers? The answer is quality and quality drives down cost. For a typical development effort, the cost of rework can be as much as 40% of total cost. For one of our development efforts, our cost of rework is 8% of total cost. Defined repeatable processes provide a solid foundation for deliverables with very few defects identified after deployment. SENTEL plans, executes and measures against the baseline during the entire development effort. We start quality checks immediately, determining if requirements are actionable and testable before design and development starts. We use peer reviews and test at every stage. For the customers we support, defects could cost millions of dollars or even risk lives. Our proven processes deliver reliable, successful programs for our customers, each and every time. Quality matters to SENTEL and we built it into every step of software development life cycle.
