Engineering Lifecycle Management

Insightful Engineering at Enterprise Scale

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

What can you do with IBM Engineering Lifecycle Management?

Create and manage requirements

Deliver consistent requirements and ultimately achieve enterprise scale with IBM’s industry leading requirements management solutions, leveraging insights and guidance from product conception to production.

Strengthen decision-making

Make better decisions by using model-based systems engineering to develop a deeper understanding of the impact of design across systems and throughout the product lifecycle.

Accelerate delivery

Real-time planning helps manage across requirements, application development, design and test efforts — and integrates with execution.

Improve quality

Integrated testing and lifecycle traceability provide visibility across artifacts for a complete view, from requirements to release.

Foster continuous collaboration

Deliver value across teams, roles and disciplines with agile and collaboration tools that support multiple technologies, platforms and processes.

Enable compliance

Integrates compliance and regulatory requirements into the development process to better enable auditability, traceability and reporting.

 

Customers about our services

soplar s.a.

„We would repeat our decision to choose Rhapsody® at any time. The strikingly improved efficiency, higher quality, and flexibility plus reusability of models make any adverse details negligible. Today we develop more machines with fewer resources in less time."

Reinhold Wüstner

Head of Product Development

soplar s.a. – Training

„Starting to use Rational Rhapsody®without coaching or training is not recommended. Understanding the why behind certain processes is essential to working effectively. Training with EVOCEAN was very valuable for me in this regard."

Vitali Mozgovoi

Software Developer

MCS Engineering AG

"It is very easy to set up and run a Perforce Helix Core proxy server for working with geographically dispersed teams. Downloading data is also very easy. We were amazed at how much time we saved."

Eric Gutmann

Project Leader

Mettler Toledo AG

„Now the advantages of our solid foundation work will have a large impact. A model is easy to adapt and maintain and new functions can be integrated very fast. In combination with the automatic code generation and testing we now will be strikingly faster… with a consistent high quality. Today we save time and money – not least thanks to IBM Rational Rhapsody!"

Wolfgang Boos

Head of Software

Kern AG

„Even if the change to Rhapsody required at first additional investment and effort – we have never regretted our decision. The fully automatic code generation from the model makes our life easier!“

Andreas Dubach

Head of Development Systems

Bernina International AG

„Thanks to the models we can visualise new functions and dependencies. A picture says more than a 1'000 words and the graphically modelled abstraction makes life much easier for us developers. At the same time, the automatic code generation based on the models takes over a substantial part of our work!“

Giovanni Annunzio

System Architect

Phonak Communication AG

„Model Driven Development with Rational Rhapsody® was a critical success factor for developing inspiro within the required schedule and market needs. Thanks to EVOCEAN's support, we were able to implement the tool quickly and apply the methodology effectively."

Rainer Platz

Head of R&D

Perforce Helix Customer sold to global leading company.

"Perforce Helix Core fully meets our expectations. We have a solution from one source on which we can rely."

Rhapsody Training Feedback

I was satisfied with everything. This was the best training I ever attended.

Large Automotive Supplier

Engineer

Schindler Elevator Ltd.

„Seamless integration of the development environment is one of our critical success criteria. Model Driven Development with Rational Rhapsody®allows us to generate the code for the target platform direct from the UML model. Integrating the debugger saves us enormous amounts of time in developing complex, embedded real-time applications. Thanks to EVOCEAN's support, today we can use this tool efficiently."
