Is QA required for early project planning?

There are many factors that determine the success of a project and one of these is the establishment of a sound project plan in that project’s preliminary stages. Which is why more and more team members are getting involved earlier on. And it’s not just analysts, but developers and QA Engineers too. Indeed, with every team member having a unique mindset informed by different competences and experiences, this will bring varying and valuable perspectives to any given business requirement. The appropriate time for involving QA in the project depends on the client and the software development methodology that is adopted. In Agile methodology, a tester’s work will begin at a certain point in the software life-cycle and elsewhere in the waterfall methodology. Much depends on the client's decision and budget, and though QA’s initial involvement is associated with additional costs, there are still several reasons why it can prove profitable.
