Document Analysis

Many costly problems and errors which arise at a later time could have been identified and resolved early on given a systematic review of the basic documents required for implementation, such as specifications, designs and plans. Our methodical approach to document analysis makes it possible for us to do exactly that. For one, our approach makes it possible to verifiably assess document quality and provide concrete recommendations for improvement for both structure as well as content. Based on our linguistic review methods and system structure patterns, our experts very often identify problems, inconsistencies and gaps which would not have been identified without an external review. As a result, we spare our clients from some unpleasant surprises.

Our approach

  • We use a methodological approach to document analysis which provides effective results in 3 phases (structural analysis, conceptual analysis and contentual analysis).
  • We show these results using statistical methods, making them easily comparable.
  • We don’t just evaluate documents but also provide concrete recommendations for improvement (down to the sentence level).
  • We make concrete statements, e.g. on the degree of completeness of specifications, and also estimate the effort and cost still required for completion.
