Software Development Processes Overview
From the beginning, Technosoft Solutions’ way of thinking has been to focus on quality and process improvement. Because of our process and quality focus, we have finished most of our projects on time, within budget. We established a company-wide Quality Management System (QMS) under ISO 9001:2008 from the beginning. Last year, our ISO surveillance was completed, with zero non-obediences.
Our successful execution of QMS under ISO 9001:2008 just increased our loyalty toward quality. Technosoft started working towards CMMI level 2 implementation and achieved CMMI level 2 in early 2008. Continuing with the same energy, we are now working towards CMMI level 3 implementation. Most of our process implementation is ready for CMMI level 3 appraisal. This is proof of our commitment to continuous process improvement, and our ability to establish and maintain Quality Management Systems.
During this process focused journey, we realized that there was no repository where sample processes and templates were available for like-wise companies. In an effort to serve our community and those companies, to get input from process community, and to provide our customers with visibility and understanding of our processes, and that is the reason that we have made all of our processes public here.

Project Management Process
This process is to define project scope and objectives, determine project estimates, establish project plans and schedule for engineering and supporting activities, monitor and control project progress, issues and risks against plans, take appropriate corrective actions when project performance deviate significantly from project plans.
Analysis and Design Process
The purpose is to establish a mechanism for gathering/extracting requirements, analyzing them and proposing a design for projects.
Configuration Management Process
Configuration Management is to establish and maintain the integrity of the work products using configuration identification, configuration control, configuration status accounting, and configuration audits throughout the product lifecycle. It focuses on the rigorous control of the managerial and technical aspects of the work products, including the delivered system.
Measurement and Analysis Process
This process is to establish and maintain an organization-wide measurement program as well as to develop and sustain a measurement capability that is used to support management information needs for monitoring progress on their business objectives.
Process and Product Quality Assurance Process
PPQA is to provide projects, departments and higher level management with a clear picture of organizational and project-based processes and connected work products. Management performs internal Quality Audits to decide whether the projects happening and the departments go along with the related defined processes and standards.
