Solutions Assessment and Validation

April 11 – 12, 2017

This course presents the building blocks of assessing solutions both for process improvement and IT-enabled solutions. This course is designed in two parts, i.e., assessing the business value of a solution based on monetary returns and assessing the effectiveness of a software/system solution.

The first part of the course covers quantifying the success of a solution into monetary terms. It shall include the savings declaration of projects and the measuring techniques to quantify improvement value. This is suitable for organizations who run kaizen, re-engineering, software development, lean or six sigma projects.

The second part of the course discusses the processes and deliverables of user testing. As a business analyst, one of the primary responsibilities is to aid the customers in their acceptance testing prior to system/software acceptance or sign-off.

Training Objectives

At the end of the course, the participants will be able to:

1. Describe Cost of Poor Quality Calculation Techniques and Activity-based Costing/Management.

2. Identify tangible and intangible benefits of solutions.

3. Draft acceptance test plan.

4. Draft test cases based on functional and non-functional requirements.

5. Design test cases including test scenarios and expected results.

6. Use IEEE Std 829 in writing acceptance test plans.

7. Estimate testing costs and schedules using proven techniques.
