asureMARK-web

In order to cope with the increasing complexity of products and the shortening market windows, companies must continuously improve their test and verification activities.  T&VS helps companies to do this through the use of the T&VS strategy, methodology reviews or through specific management help on projects.

T&VS have developed a unique benchmarking process, asureMARK that gives structure to the review process and enables companies to make continuous improvements to their test and verification environments by identifying the key enhancement actions required.  T&VS have presented the asureMARK process at several key industry conferences and a technical paper is available here.
