Pro-3e® Methodology: Innovative Analysis, Proven Results


Pragmatics leads the industry with process innovations that deliver precise and repeatable results. Our robust Process, Project and Product (Pro-3e) Independent Verification and Validation (IV&V) methodology ensures flawless execution of all aspects of the Systems Development Life Cycle (SDLC). Pro-3e is yet another way we provide our clients with measurable value through process excellence.

Using a systematic approach, Pro-3e addresses enterprise needs such as governance, policy and procedure uniformity, risk management, issue resolution, standardization, integration, programmatic consistency, and efficiency validation. As a result, we can identify roadblocks or challenges at any stage of the project life cycle.

Enhance Performance, Reduce Cost

Pro-3e incorporates a suite of standards, including SEI CMMI® Level 5, ISO 9001, ISO/IEC 27001, Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), and ITIL®. By following these rigorous standards, we provide early indicators of project issues at lower levels of process maturity and a framework to enable continuous process improvement. We create and tailor IEEE 1012-2004-based IV&V plans to support evolving requirements.

Benefits of Pro-3e IV&V Methodology

  • Rigorous processes and procedures based on industry-standard evaluation and authentication approaches
  • Gives users an incremental preview of system performance, enabling early adjustments
  • Provides decision criteria for proceeding to the next development phase
  • Defined, repeatable processes and checklists accelerate project execution and team on-boarding
  • Continual team training on methodology and execution
  • Adherence to industry standards and best practices, including SEI CMMI Level 5, IEEE, ISO, ITIL, and Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK)

Optimized Production Life Cycle

  • Allows for early detection and correction of software defects, resulting in overall cost reduction
  • Enhances management insight into process, product and project risk
  • Decreases rework and eliminates unnecessary costs and schedule delays
  • Provides audits and recommendations to improve products
  • Promotes efficiency through initial risk assessments to maximize benefits and return on investments
  • Fosters high levels of complete customer satisfaction
  • Provides detailed technical insight into software performance

Ultimately, our innovative approach to IV&V enhances performance while reducing cost, accelerating the production schedule and minimizing performance risk for our clients. To learn more, we invite you to contact our corporate headquarters at 703-890-8500, or visit our Contact Us page.
