Leading Requirement analysis team --- Study of technical specifications against different tenders/orders , placed by different Govt/private utilities .Finding new development areas/product as per company strength/product portfolio.
Meeting Prospective Customer for requirement analysis and foresee upcoming market trends.
Applicability and feasibility of new application.
Initialize and Concluding the Development Cycle .
Coordinating & Monitoring Development Team.
Writing detailed Product requirement.
Creating presentation/Demos and training to sales/field people.
Providing technical content to marketing and sales..
To carry out detailed analysis of billing data (MRI data) and to find suspected and faulty consumers. Billing data analysis contains study of consumer’s load pattern, consumption pattern, maximum demand to sanction demand ratio pattern and upon that comparison of same type of industries/consumers.
Tamper data analysis with taking care of field conditions, to find tampering done by consumer intentionally.
To test meters in testing lab for checking any tampering done with meter hardware circuitry and to check impact of that on meter accuracy .
To find out impact of wrong connections done by consumers.
To find out impact of different devices used for theft of electricity .(Now a day’s many electronics devices on load side are being used which disturbs meter functionality and make it to record less than actual)

Reviewing & preparing complete test plan with estimation and acceptance criteria.
Designing Test cases as per specification and RTM (requirement tractability matrix taking care condition of field and application. Test cases writing for system, integration, stress, security, usability testing and for boundary value analysis.
To design test cases and to execute test cases with automation tools i.e. win runner and Home built tool, as well as manually and to report bugs in defect management.
To prepare automation scripts to reduce turnaround time of the testing.
Do different protocols validations which are used in the system for data transfer &communication.
Work in parallel with Design Team and to provide inputs towards the improvement of the product.
Following CMMI processes for releasing software’s and to make other members same.
To Visit the consumer as per organization need.
To support the team members and to communicate the issues / problems among all stockholders for project healthiness.
