2 HomeA Brief HistorySystems Engineering, Inc. was founded in 1995 and is certified as a Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business. We are headquartered in Alexandria, VA and have offices in Tacoma, WA, Rochester, NY, Virginia Beach, VA.Since 2000, we have supported our Federal Government and commercial clients, providing a wide range of IT services and products. Today, our staff is focused on providing state-of-the-art distance learning and computer based training products and services, leading-edge enterprise architecture, database design, development, service and support, and a wide-range of IT services.Our staff consists of experienced and highly qualified employees, most of whom have advanced degrees and certifications, including PhDs, Enterprise Architects, Program Managers, and numerous IT software and hardware certifications.SEI possesses a Top Secret Facility Clearance and is certified to hold and process classified information. Most SEI employees hold DoD security clearances.In addition, SEI’s vast network of strategic partnerships with the largest IT systems integrators, developers, and manufacturers has enabled SEI to take on large and sensitive projects, consistently providing results that meet or exceed our customers’ expectations, on time and on budget.
3 Quality Assurance Plan The SEI QA approach is based on written procedures and focuses on achieving continuous improvement of every process used to create products and services. Our streamlined management style, underscored by employee and subcontractor involvement, harnesses the creativity and commitment of our team. Process improvements are recognized and those responsible rewarded.Quality is not something that can be incorporated into an activity after defects occur. It must be designed into the process during the analysis and design phase and carried through to the development and implementation phases. Evaluation of product quality is not a one-time step but must take place continuously. Although the PM is responsible for overall task order quality, each member of the SEI Team is responsible for achieving high quality workmanship.Our QA planning and performance process reduces program risk and emphasizes the following:Detailed early planning, including a thorough evaluation of requirements so QA is built into all activitiesImplementation of customized QA procedures and trainingEvaluation of interrelationships and establishment of QA checkpointsInitiation of automated QA monitoring. The PM builds QA requirements into each task during planning, to ensure that crucial QA checkpoints are not overlooked.Written QA procedures that outline steps taken at each phase of the project or production of a deliverable, including corrective measures to be taken if performance and/or deliverables are substandard or a project delay occurs.The SEI QA process ensures that all data and deliverables are accurate, and that processes and methodology are appropriate, instructionally sound, and suited for their intended use. In our process, a qualified professional QA team reviews and analyzes the task requirements and develops product testing in accordance with the TO tasking. An example of our QA process which is utilized for data base and curriculum development shown below, however, we utilize the same basic approach to very project.
4 PhaseSource of QAActionsAnalysisQA Team, Curriculum Team, peer reviewVerify appropriateness and completeness of methodologies for data collection, analysis, and sources of data.Ensure recommendations (media, training tasks, prioritizations, etc.) flow from data and analysis; process are repeatable and valid; and sound learning theory is applied.Establish draft QA test plan for projectDesignVerify sound instructional principles and strategies are being employed optimally.Validate flow chart for branching and interactivity are instructionally sound.Verify that design will meet requirements of task and is feasible within the constraints of the contract.Establish technical requirements and testing criteria to determine compliancyDevelopmentQA Team, SMEEvaluate screen lay-out, branching, navigation, media type, scripts, graphics, color schemes, student evaluations, feedback, help screens, etc. Ensure that storyboards follow the lesson flow and give evaluators sufficient information to make judgments on how the finished product will look and function.Evaluate storyboards for compliance with good multimedia courseware design principles. Compare interactivity, assessments and presentation with contract requirements and resolve any discrepancies between the two documents.Check accuracy and completeness of technical information. Evaluate appropriateness of courseware presentation to audience.Look for typographical errors, broken navigation, flow of presentation, effectiveness of media, etc. Test all controls in all levels. Major design/content conflicts should have been resolved during storyboard review.Close scrutiny of material. Ensure material is readable.Ready for validation on students.Ensure design is being implemented and has the instructional impact intended.ImplementationPM, QA TeamConduct implementation locally to ensure checklist is complete and materials readyApprove course object for final deliveryEvaluationCurriculum Team, PM, QA Team, IV&V TeamVerify the right questions are being addressed for the purpose of the evaluation.Verify correct methodology is planned for data collection, analysis, and sources.Ensure recommendations follow from the data and analysis and are complete and sufficiently specific to allow for decisions regarding the program.
5 SEI assumes full responsibility for the quality of our products and guarantees that any corrective measures will be taken at no additional cost to ensure that the Government is completely satisfied. This process ensures that exceptional quality is achieved in all our products including:Instructor-Led MaterialsTechnology-Based Training ProductsLearning Organization StrategiesLearning Systems Development and IntegrationKnowledge Management SystemsTraining Management SystemsAnalysisEvaluationPrint Based Instructional MaterialsWithin SEI all team members are subject to the same schedules and quality assurance requirements. Each of the SEI Team members accepts and fully supports the SEI QA approach.Adherence to Delivery SchedulesAfter a TO is delivered, our PM executes the detailed MP developed for the proposal. The PM develops a labor allocation for assigned personnel across the TO’s funded time line. This labor allocation gives a clear picture of what the funding can accommodate and alerts the SEI PM to any adjustments that may be needed as the project progresses. The SEI PM compares labor expenditures against tasks completed and from these develops projections of resources needed to adhere to approved delivery schedules. The percent of task completion can be measured in many ways including lines of code, number of graphics, or number of storyboards. The important element is that the measure must be quantifiable and it must be measured at the same time that labor hour expenditures are measured. Reports are produced to keep an accurate total and complete documentation of all contract charges versus progress achieved. These reports automatically calculate percent of time and funds expended against task completion, enabling the SEI PM to instantly see if expenditures are on track. This information is provided on monthly progress reports to the Government along with progress made, travel completed, and the status of deliverables.SEI will use our proven project management system to ensure that adequate resources are allocated to each task order, schedules are maintained, and that CSCS management personnel are informed of current progress, issues, and task status. In addition to a formal monthly progress report prepared for the Government, other forms of both scheduled and unscheduled communication will continue through the life of each task/project. The SEI PM will conduct formal and informal reviews with the project leads to examine the progress of work, identify potential problem areas, and specify potential new task areas that may require early identification of special skills. Action items resulting from the reviews will be numbered, assigned, and tracked by the TLs until they are resolved. The PM will keep the Contracting Officer’s Representative (COR) and Contracting Officer (CO) informed of schedule status and potential problems through frequent contact and formal progress/status reporting procedures. This ensures continued high-level visibility for the program and full compliance with reporting requirements of the contract. SEI will use the performance review mechanism, described below, throughout task/project performance.
