How Fastek Delivers Results
Fastek delivers a repeatable process methodology that is designed to enable you to maximize your ROI and better allocate your
resources – based on your company's core competencies. Our comprehensive management process meets critical verification
and validation for mission-critical systems.
Identifying and clarifying assumptions early in the project
will reduce cycle times and increase the success rate. Unlike other companies that follow a traditional methodology, Fastek
discovers and resolves hidden issues earlier, thereby reducing costly changes and project delays later. All concepts, business
goals, functionality, and performance issues are measured against the user needs, eliminating delays in product launches.
- Early requirement validation identifies issues before the project is underway…not after. The process
we've developed is designed to reduce issues – and in most cases eliminate them – before they can have an impact. This
differs from traditional processes, where significant time and resources are dedicated up front, and where intensive resources
are often necessary to absorb changes later in the project. The resulting delays and increased costs often jeopardize the project
altogether.Our process puts more emphasis on discovering, identifying and clarifying ambiguous assumptions or any incomplete
specification as early in the process as possible. Once the requirements are completely defined, then we engage in planning –
with critical input from experts who possess extensive real-world experience and particular insight in a given field.
- Reusable blocks save extensive development costs. We start with proven designs that eliminate the risk associated
with completely new designs. Our extensive library of software modules, based on past experience combined with standard process
components, eliminate the time and cost of engineering and testing new modules. The modules have been pre-tested against real-world
operating environments.By using requirements written in pseudo code and commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) software, as well as
integrating reusable building blocks from our extensive library of project components, we can avoid the time and expense of
"recreating the wheel" and optimize the process.
- Rigorous validation process ensures "First Time" success. Validation is the cornerstone of our "First Time" success.
As the project is being developed, the performance characteristics are verified early, which exponentially lowers the costs of
changes later in the life cycle or during product launch. The ongoing analysis is well documented to reduce time for certification.
We evaluate and optimize alterations and iterations using automatic testing software.We use automated tools to perform manual
tasks that would normally take hundreds of programming hours. In addition, these tools provide more traceability, thereby reducing
rework – while providing the ability to resolve changes in less time.
- Monitor project performance and take corrective action – to eliminate problems early. Always vigilant for changing
conditions, Fastek takes a proactive approach to redefining requirements and reallocating resources in order to deliver the project
on time.There are several common situations that can require prompt attention if you want to stay competitive in your market. You
might have a product that requires adjustments mandated by new regulations or compliance issues, or changes in the marketplace that
call for new features or price points.
