Quality Assurance and Testing Services:
SCI Center of Excellence in Software Testing (CoEST):
Over the years, SCI has worked with various client organizations to serve their QA, IV&V and testing requirements and in the process gained Thought Leadership in the area of Software Testing. We recognized that many of the objectives, challenges, and testing approaches are common across each of the testing engagements. We created an internal center of excellence (SCI CoEST) to accumulate findings and lessons learned across each of our contracts and to evaluate the use of new test technologies to improve testing efficiency and quality outcomes. We developed standards for a universal API testing framework and evaluated tools/technologies using Robotic Process Automation (RPA) RPA and/or Machine Learning (ML) to improve defect classification, produce test data, and to auto-repair failing automation scripts.
In each of our testing contracts, we deploy this accumulation of knowledge to assist with modernization efforts and to infuse cross-agency experience and knowledge.
