Annexure - Projects Summary

Project Rating (Business Insurance)

Client Travelers, US

Project Description The ‘Rating’ component is responsible for rating insurance policies to ensure that the below are correctly computed at various points in the insurance coverage period. This is the most important component, for which testing the complete cycle is essential i.e., from the creation of base policy till the point it gets expired and audited.

(1) Annual & monthly premiums at the time of quoting (base policy)

(2) New premiums at the time of renewal, taking into account any changes in coverage (including any claims made previously) at that point

(3) New premiums within the coverage period subject to changes in coverage

(4) Refunded premiums for cancelled policies for which annual premium has already been paid.

Testing of this component involved:

(1) Creating different varieties of insurance policies (with varying levels and coverages) using the SCBP-WC (Small Commercial Business Platform – Workers Compensation) web application

(2) Setting up the correct data – like cancelling policies at various points in the coverage period, adding new coverage to existing policies to change their premium values, etc.,

(3) Mathematically computing the expected values using the reference data (from database and worksheet from business) for the policies in various states. The computation is automated using a spreadsheet called ‘Rating Calculation Worksheet’, which we create based on business rules & conditions (known as

‘state algorithms’) and reference data (held in database and also in a worksheet provided by business).

(4) Validating that the actual values produced after audit match the expected values.

(5) Verification of ‘Policy Papers’, to ensure that the coverage details and premium are as expected.

Project Premium Audit (Business Insurance)

Client Travelers, US

Project Description The ‘Premium Audit’ component is responsible to ensure that the coverage details are properly maintained throughout the coverage period taking into account all the changes done to the policies.

Testing of this component (essentially the SCBP-WC web application) involved:

(1) Creation of base policies via the SCBP-WC (Small Commercial Business Platform

– Workers Compensation) web application

(2) Changing the coverage details (add or remove coverage) at various points for the base policies. Also, ‘Cancel’ or ‘Expire’ the policies – in order to audit.

(3) Triggering an ‘audit’ for those policies

(4) Validating whether all the changes are reflected in the audit It also involves negative testing to assume that some changes are not reflected in the audit (either the agent hasn’t added the detail or a functionality defect). In that case, the missing details will be added to the audit and a ‘Revised Audit’ will be triggered.

privileges’ and ‘module privileges’. For instance, a document might be visible with modify access to the members of the module the document belongs to but when shared with members of other modules, the same document would be visible only with read access.
