Methodologies

There are lots of methodologies and models that are used for software development and testing. As an experienced and modern-thinking software testing company, NITC implements the most efficient testing methodologies in order to allow our clients to choose the most suitable one for their testing needs. NITC Methodology uses iteration approach. We implement our methodology to be able to respond and adapt smoothly to all changes that occur during the software development and testing process. NITC methodologies, your software development process will be divided into numerous short cycles or interactions that help to minimize the risks. As a result, your software development process will consist of several releases each of which will be built on a previous version. Testing process is carried out for each release. We follow principles: Face-to-face communication is a must. Response to changes is more important than strict compliance with a plan.Interactions between individuals are more important than processes and tools. Changes are always welcome. The main metrics of NITC efficiency is a working software.


RAPID APPLICATION DEVELOPMENT METHODOLOGY

RAD Methodology is used for selection of such software development and testing methods that allow to create bug-free software in the fastest and the most technically efficient way. NITC recommends to follow RAD methodology when your project has the following priorities: The software must be developed and tested in a tight schedule. Software requirements are unclear. Project budget is highly limited. The main factor is GUI. RAD methodology assumes that software development and testing process can be divided into numerous functional components.


RATIONAL UNIFIED PROCESS METHODOLOGY

RUP Methodology assumes that the testing process is divided into multiply processes each of which consists of the following four phases: Inception Elaboration Construction Transition When one process ends, the software is fully reviewed and the next process begins if necessary. RUP methodology is based on the following principles: Early identification of risks. Full concentration on and strict adherence to the customer’s requirements. Component architecture, implemented and tested in the early stages of the project. Full quality control at each stage of product development. RUP Methodology uses iteration model of software development and testing process.

SPIRAL MODEL

Spiral Model combines capabilities of the prototyping and waterfall models in order to provide advantages of both raising and falling concepts and to emphasize the initial stages of the life cycle such as analysis and design. A distinctive feature of the Spiral model is paying a particular attention to the risks that affects the life cycle’s organization.


V MODEL

V model is a variation of Waterfall model but follows a top-down approach as well as a bottom-up one. This model can be easily represented with the letter ‘V’ where development tasks go top-down by the left side of the letter V and testing tasks go bottom-up by the right side of the letter V. When using V model, your development and testing process will go hand-in-hand.


WATERFALL MODEL

Waterfall model consists of the following phases: Requirements analysis Design Implementation Verification Maintenance These phases can be adjusted and changed in accordance with the approach that is used by the company or customer. The proceeding from one phase to another can be made only when the previous phase is fully and successfully completed. NITC recommends using Waterfall model for large projects where sophisticated documentation is required.
