Software Development Life Cycle

Quality Assurance at SLOKI

Since most of the cofounders of Sloki have come from automotive software industry, we provide at most importance to the safety and quality features. In order to ensure the quality, we adhere by following tools and techniques:

  • MISRA guidelines for coding.
  • Tagging and traceability matrix from Requirements phase to acceptance testing.
  • Six-sigma green belt methodologies for process improvement towards quality.
Business Working Models
Fixed Price Project

Sloki undertakes fixed price contracts in situations where the project scope/deliverables are clearly defined. Together we analyze and discuss your statement of work thoroughly in order to minimize midway changes and then undertake the activities to deliver all the components of your requirements at a fixed price.

Time and Material Contracts

This model establishes two rates – rate for engineer time (typically expressed as a rate per hour, workday or person-month) and the cost of direct materials used i.e. software, hardware components, development tools, lab and test equipment etc.
The T&M business model is particularly suitable in contexts where projects are complex and embodied by unclear specifications, or requires a very high degree freedom of system design changes at mid project stages. It is also suitable when:

  • Project involves new emerging technologies or R&D where project requirements keep evolving during execution.
  • Business process or workflows have not been defined properly.
  • Project requires integration with other third party environments or other dependencies.
  • Project involves developing solutions for new yet untested hardware or software components.
  • Project requires continuity with regard to support and enhancements (maintenance engineering or sustaining
    engineering).
Hybrid Model

Sloki offers “Hybrid Model” that allows a mix of fixed and T&M pricing. This provides customers with the best of two business models, allowing for a switch from one to the other based on the stage of the project, clarity in scope and deliverables.

Here is an example of where and how the Hybrid Model can be employed:

Customer wants to involve Sloki in a new product development activity where scope and integration challenges cannot not be clearly identified at the start of the project. In such cases, we can engage in a T&M model with a core team that works with the customer team to resolve scope, deliverables, approach and schedule. Once there is sufficient clarity on these parameters, Sloki then submits a fixed price for the rest of the project.
