Using the right tools can save you much time and money. A trend that has been established for years in industrial manufacturing is now beginning to take hold in engineering: automation of processes. Cut your risk – while boosting efficiency. Do not forget to look at total cost of ownership when selecting tools – not just the licence cost.

As providers of complete uniform solutions, we work together with various manufacturers of “Best in Class” and “Best in Breadth” development tools. This allows us to offer an optimum line of products that complement each other.

We also recommend tools which are not in our portfolio – our aim is that the tool meets your needs.

We assure the sustainable integration of tools, as each tool has its heart and focus. Our consultant have a hollistic view and work hand-in-hand with tool specialists together.

Engineering Lifecycle Management

Engineering Teams are facing the challenge of designing, developing and engineering sophisticated products in shorter periods of time and with fewer resources. They must not only engineer new technologies but also integrate new solutions that drive faster time to market at lower cost from trusted vendors. IBM Engineering Lifecycle Management (ELM) is a comprehensive solution that integrates technologies such as the Watson AI-powered Requirements Quality Assistant (RQA) to improve the quality of increasingly complex requirements, and advances automotive compliance to fast-track ASPICE compliance.

Key benefits of the IBM Engineering Lifecycle Management Solution:

  • Scale to handle industry-specific design complexities and emerging industry standards
  • Support for global configurations, systems-of-systems, large supplier networks, traceability, auditing, and integrated compliance and reporting
  • Integration across the entire engineering lifecycle, from requirements management to systems design and test management
  • Seamless workflow management and collaboration across distributed teams

Rhapsody Model Manager

Expert Workshops and Trainings

Rhapsody Model Manager (RMM) is a web-based application that extends Rhapsody models to the web for improved collaboration. With RMM you create traceability to other development artefacts such as Requirements Management and you take advantage of advanced configuration management functionalities are part of global configurations of IBM Engineering Lifecycle Management Solution. Rhapsody Model Manager enables teams to architect, design, and develop systems and software in an iterative and collaborative way.

Link designs and requirements

With RMM you can establish state-of-the-art linking between model elements in Rhapsody and requirements management artifacts in IBM Engineering Requirements Management DOORS® or Engineering Requirements Management DOORS Next based on OSLC Technology. You can also link to non-IBM OSLC enabled tools.

Manage change

RMM enables enterprise Configuration Management capabilities to support fine-grained components. Further, RMM leverages parallel development with merge capabilities for Rhapsody models.

IBM Rational Publishing Engine

Tool Evaluation & Integration

IBM Rational Publishing Engine (RPE) automates the generation of high quality document-style reports across various data sources. These can be just one data source or many. For example, from your deployed Jazz™ applications and also from third-party tools. The aim of the reports can be multifold, as for example for formal reviews, contractual obligations, regulatory oversight or ad hoc use. Further RPE also lets you output a high-quality requirements traceability matrix in formats like PDF, HTML, Word or XSL.

Built-in capabilities extract data from a range of data sources to help reduce manual work and risk of errors. For your conveniance, out-of-the-box templates help ensure your projects get up and running fast. Further, the tool provides intuitive features such as drag-and-drop, and launch and preview capability.
