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
