“A game changer for software project certainty”

ScopeMaster helps you write better user stories, INVEST and requirements quality criteria

Quality and Estimation

Enjoy orders of magnitude improvements in your software requirements quality and software estimates.  

Analysing the text of user stories

ScopeMaster® analyses your user stories.  It parses, interprets, analyses, tests, sizes and then reports on the quality of user stories as if it was reading them like a person.   It shows you potential mistakes such as: ambiguities, duplicates, omissions, inconsistencies and complexities. ScopeMaster® will find and help you fix typically 30 – 60% of all requirements issues.   This represents 6-12% of all potential bugs.   As it analyses the stories for potential problems it also estimates the functional size of the stories in COSMIC function points (an ISO standard).  It does all of this in a fraction of the time it would take to do manually.

“The Ultimate in shift-left testing”

Most software testing assumes that the requirements are correct. But wait! They’re not.  If your requirements volatility is causing rework, then you are wasting time and effort.

Benefits.

  1. Better quality user stories / requirements
  2. Reduced rework
  3. More productive requirements meetings
  4. Reduced scope creep
  5. Fewer change requests
  6. Shorter delivery schedules

Expect to achieve.

  1. Higher quality software
  2. Immediate benefits
  3. Minimal disruption to the team
  4. Encourages a quality-centric focus in your analysis team.
  5. Better cost and schedule estimates for your software development projects

Software quality needs to start with testing your requirements.   ScopeMaster®  performs static analysis on your requirements.

Rapid Estimation

ScopeMaster® also analyses the user stories to measure functional size.  Functional size (COSMIC function points) is an ISO standard, it’s a technology independent measure that is proven to be the most valid measurement in the software industry.  Functional size is essential to estimate and manage a software project.   ScopeMaster is the first and only tool available for automated functional sizing based on written requirements or user stories.

What they are saying

This is of great potential benefit for the requirements community as well as the sizing community..  I share your excitement.

I would be shocked if this didn’t improve development team productivity by at least 10%

Lonnie, Consultant Project Assurance

Its amazing that you have come up with the right set of functional requirements.

Another benefit of your tool is that,  not only does it interpret the requirements but it actually writes the detail specifications, which can then be used as test cases.

It is much harder to remove defects from requirements and design that it is from source code.  But if those defects are not removed prior to testing, testing itself cannot find them.

Capers Jones, The Economics of Software Quality

Scopemaster doesn’t just help find the requirements defects but helps educate authors to prevent them in future!

incredibly useful and ridiculously fast

JF, CEO and President, Software Quality Organisation, USA

The main benefit (that I found with) ScopeMaster is fixing problems with minimal time and effort.  And the good thing was, ScopeMaster was easy and fun to use.
