Independent Estimates (DoD)

QSM helps defense and intelligence agencies force-multiply their software efforts.

Independent Estimates

Designed for: Those responsible for acquiring or delivering software and IT solutions in support of the Department of Defense (DoD) and Intelligence Community (IC).

We provide independent and unbiased quantitative assessment of your software project applicable throughout the DoD Acquisition and Sustainment Life-Cycle, whether single release or multi-release scenarios, and across various software domains and development methodologies. QSM consultants, using our industry leading SLIM suite of tools, focus on technical feasibility, schedule and cost realism, and product reliability so we can align with the DoD/IC priorities of cost, schedule and performance accountability. Additionally, our analyses are supported by historical data which makes the results less subjective and ultimately based on quantitative rigor. We explore and present practical alternatives that will get capabilities to the field sooner with lower cost.
