Over the last few years, the way projects are handled has changed substantially. Processes have to be implemented in a more complex environment. Program and application development is getting more sophisticated with more variety. Software runs on heterogeneous platforms and is subject to constant changes which are often maintained by distributed teams.
Our Quality Management approach takes all these circumstances into account. We run a systematic total-quality-model. The object is not only the project itself, but also the project environment, the project customer and in certain projects also legal compliance.
