ARiSA™ - Applied Research in System Analysis - is the research and development division of Softwerk AB led by Dr. Rüdiger Lincke. We work in close cooperation with the software technology research group at Linnaeus University led by Prof. Dr. Welf Löwe.
it is our goal to assist quality management of software and information systems engineering. We provide seminars, methods, and development tools supporting the efficient production and maintenance of high-quality IT systems. All our services and tools follow a common principle:
“You cannot control what you cannot measure” - Tom DeMarco
Services include Quality Workshop™, First Contact Analysis™, and the installation of an Quality Monitoring™. Individual services like quality assessment of external components and quality control of outsourced projects can be delivered, as well.
A number of tools assist quality management of software, documentation, and their development processes: Quality Monitor™ provides relevant and reliable information about the quality of software and documentation. It analyzes and visualizes the design and other quality indicators. This helps IT professionals to control and improve quality. It helps investors to judge IT assets and to reduce risks. Plug-ins can be added to Quality Monitor™ or used as stand-alone tools. They add indicators of customer satisfaction and timeliness of development to the picture of quality of an IT system.
