Cross-Team Collaboration


A customer validation (IV&V) team has to integrate components from three contractors to perform testing. The contractors each have proprietary, in-process work product so they can’t all work in the same lab.


Set up separate CONS3RT projects for the IV&V team and each contractor. Each contractor will enjoy privacy during their development and test phases and can choose when and what to promote to the IV&V project for integration testing. The contractor’s project could even be connected to a cloud space they control. The IV&V team receives components that are already automated inside CONS3RT, so their integration task is much simpler. In addition, each of the other contractors could (at the IV&V team’s discretion) have access to interim deliverables from each other so they can incorporate them in their development and test activities, thus catching any issues earlier in the process.
