Our broad-scale Program Management & Engineering capabilities enable successful project delivery that adheres to project schedules while managing costs, minimizing risks, and maintaining the highest standards of quality and safety.
MAG’s program management process is part of its Quality Management System which is CMMI-Dev Level 3® rated and ISO 9001:2008 certified.
MAG applies CMMI® Level 3 project management practices with subject matter expertise, PMP® project management skills and management strategies/capabilities to manage project initiation through delivery to ensure we provide a solution that meets all project goals within project constraints including scope, schedule, quality, and budget. Our goal is to provide our customers with products that exceed intended benefit and value add.
Quality Assurance Services
MAG Technology’s Quality Assurance (QA) professionals provide all level of quality assurance (QA) expertise to ensure products meet customer requirements and business objectives prevent defects. QA includes a planned and systematic approach to testing, peer reviews, and process audits. Quality assurance services are compliant with SEI CMMI Level 3 practices and ISO 9001:2015 practices.
MAG does not believe in the “one size fits all” solution to Acquisitions. We work to understand the needs of our customer and tailor a solution to meet and often surpass the needs of the customer. MAG brings an in-depth understanding of the total acquisition lifecycle as well as the co-dependencies of the most multifaceted solutions. Our acquisition, management, and engineering professionals work together to deliver the best solutions for the requirements of our customers which is often the result of our proven record of success.
MAG has developed a formal systematic approach to the identification, assessment, and management of project risks. Risk management practices (based on PMI and SEI CMMI practices) are used to minimize, monitor, and control the probability of events that can have a negative impact on a project through the development of mitigation strategies and contingency planning.
MAG’s Configuration Management capabilities use a formal management approach to change management so that a product or system maintains its integrity over time. Our CM managers ensure that project changes are documented, traceable, and applied in a controlled manner so that the stability and security of the product is not compromised, and work products are accurate and consistent. CM is implemented using industry tools and comprehensive SEI CMMI based practices across all products and services.
Public Affairs Management
MAG uses an effective integrated strategy to build and maintain a strong reputation and relationship with stakeholders and partners including those in government, media, issue management, corporate responsibility, dissemination of information, and strategic communications.
Integrated Master Schedules
MAG’s project management processes include the development and management of integrated master schedules (IMS) by a master scheduler. The IMS is a key program management tool used for planning, scheduling, and tracking large and complex projects. It includes all of the detailed project tasks and multi-layered schedule required to successfully complete a project as well as dependencies and relationships between tasks. Based on best practices and MAG standard process, our master schedulers develop an IMS that is right for the project – with the right tasks, level of detail, and critical path. The IMS is used to measure project progress and communicate the status of the project to all project stakeholders.
Work Break Down Structures
At MAG, project planning starts with a good Work Breakdown Structure (WBS). MAG’s project managers use this key program management tool to accurately define and scope the total project. The WBS is a decomposition of the project into smaller components (phases, deliverables, and work efforts), allowing for clear resource allocation, better estimating, and monitoring and controlling the project. The WBS is the basis for the development of the project IMS.
Systems Engineering & Architecture Support
MAG provides an expansive range of system engineering and architectural support to the customer – from concept inception, and testing through installation, application, assessment, and operations and maintenance. Our approach to Systems Engineering is tailored after mature and proven processes tailored after the industry standards and best practices to deliver solutions to our customer to meet their needs and requirements.
MAG also offers architectural support through active collaboration with our customer to find a balance of design and operational expectations in addition to the technical and budget requirements of the customer.
Security Engineering Support
MAG understands the importance of security engineering support in all stages of the System Development Lifecycle. This approach ensures that security is integrated into the design of each system rather than being added as an afterthought to avoid costly redesign and redevelopment costs. Through conducting vulnerability tests, risk analyses, response planning and training, MAG can reduce the future vulnerability of our customers by mitigating potential incidents and threats.
MAG uses proven analytical and sustainable security methodologies that demonstrate our customer-first focus, innovative mindset, and effective execution style which has made MAG a leader in the field of Security Engineering.
Software Engineering Support
MAG Technology’s in-depth knowledge of software engineering processes, standards, specifications, and requirements assure superior products and support that meets our customers evolving needs and requirements. MAG uses the most current software practices, architectures, and technologies from the industries of today and tailors them to meet the challenges of continually expanding data, distributed mobile workforces, critical mission requirements, and continuously shrinking IT budget.
Test & Certification Support
MAG offers a comprehensive set of testing devices including life cycle testing, test consulting, test automation services, the design and implementation of testing services, specialized testing including performance, SOA, data, package, product, security, and infrastructure testing. MAG offers Certification Support as well. A Certification is a formal recognition of having a level of expertise within the designated area of Information Technology. The beneficiary is acknowledged as having an overall understanding of the disciplines and skills represented in an all-inclusive body of knowledge for a respective software discipline. MAG can help the workforce achieve this level of discipline through our industry leading certification support services.
Deployment Coordination Support
MAG has extensive experience with the deployment of software. Because the needs of the customer are often unique, MAG will tailor the specific processes and/or procedures needed to make a software system available for use by the customer to allow the process of software deployment to be successful. Successful software deployment should always ensure that the customer’s software distribution needs are met in a smart, well-managed way, a way of doing business which MAG is known for achieving in support of its customers.
MAG can meet your technical writing needs with a cost-effective solution, whether you need a team of specialists to produce a complete line of technical documentation, or a single technical writer for a small project. Our customers know they can work closely with one of our technical writers for the entire length of a project and the quality of our work is guaranteed to be outstanding. All of our technical writers are highly proficient in using industry standard writing tools and are skilled across multiple industries.
