The SQB plant management team, headed by plant manager Randy Day, is constantly searching for ways to minimize packaging, save energy, decrease landfill waste and optimize recycling, all while ensuring that they're making informed business decisions.
SQB has received recognition for the past three years from the California Integrated Waste Management Board for its commitment to waste reduction.
This year, SQB challenges other businesses to take a look at their own production and make a commitment to the ongoing search for more efficient, earth-friendly means of operation.
UPSPRING's SQB is produced from a database of individual Quality Assessment Reports (QARs).
0 of the SQB now contains a "Defect Found Percentage," the percentage of defects to the total number of possible defects for each quality category; programming standards, portability, globalization, and structure.
Additionally, UPSPRING consulted with a number of its customers to determine which particular measures were of the most concern, and has highlighted them within the SQB.
The SQB includes a discussion about quality scores, trends, as well as areas of emphasis.
For those involved with software quality process improvement methodologies such as Software Engineering Institute's Capability Maturity Model (SEI's CMM), Six Sigma, or ISO 9001, the SQB provides another means to "optimize" their processes by comparing internal software to other software development organizations.
For those companies seeking to optimize their software development process, whether using CMM, or other software development improvement processes, we provide the tools necessary for each step and our SQB provides the `outside the box' comparison to help obtain the final level of optimization.
