A Seamless and Successful Transition from Quality Assurance to Quality Engineering

July 1, 2022

A seamless and whitepaper
Quality Engineering has gained prominence with the shift to agile and DevOps. Companies are shifting from Quality Assurance process for an agile and scalable application development process. QE brings software development and IT operations teams together, removes silos, and embedding security in every step of the application development process. But this is just the tip of the iceberg among the reasons to shift from Quality Assurance to Quality Engineering. The move towards QE over QA is a cultural shift within the organizations and the development teams.

HOW EXPANSION JOINT EXPERTISE HELPS IMPROVE INDUSTRIAL WASTEWATER SYSTEM RELIABILITY

whitePaper | July 11, 2022

Nearly all industries have wastewater treatment plants. These facilities are designed to meet pretreatment requirements imposed by local or state governments. Pretreatment rules were enacted to prevent industrial discharges from affecting or passing through domestic wastewater treatment plants, so industry is seeing upgrades or new builds to comply. Wastewater piping systems are constructed from a variety of materials depending on the media flowing through the pipes. These pumping and piping systems can be complex, causing havoc and downtime when failures occur.

Current Issues in Procurement of Architectural, Engineering, and Construction Management Services

whitePaper | February 19, 2020

Government Code Sections 4525 define a qualifications-based selection process where public entities may consider the price of proposed services in the procurement. This process was previously a three-step process starting with advertising for statements of qualifications, then developing a short list, and then requesting proposals from the short list to include resumes, comments on the contract, and price considerations if relevant; but is now often a four-step process, with the last step of negotiating sequentially with the most qualified firms.

UNPACKING THE BENEFITS OF STRUCTURAL BIM

whitePaper | September 19, 2022

Building Information Modeling, or BIM, is first and foremost a centralized, collaborative process where project stakeholders work together and share information. This allows for better organization of design and construction, with professionals from various disciplines contributing to the process. Naturally, this goes beyond simply sharing a 3D model, as each model contains data that will be useful throughout the project life cycle. Historically however, construction professionals worked in isolation, as the means of communication and technology weren’t as evolved as they are today. Sometimes, for instance, important information on 2D drawings would get lost. Consequently, the design phase was often plagued with fragmented deliverables, miscommunication and limited visualization, which often required rework.
