To build a smarter product, stop separating design and test

As innovation grows, so does the amount and complexity of software code, and the number of interactions between mechanical, software, and electrical elements. With more complexity comes a greater chance for errors. Today, the challenge is how to address this complexity without slowing development or increasing costs.

Product and portfolio management for electronics industry

A product developed with market needs as a foundation will have a much better success ratio than a product that is a technology push. To get there, organizations need to create an environment and a platform where collaboration, communication, transparency and governance can take place.

Product design for variants

Recognizing the need to design for product variants and the best methods to manage variants is critical to product development success over time. Variant management is how you organize the list of feature variants and put them into products. With new product development projects, planning for future variants is not typically done at the beginning.

How to build quality products by leveraging agile development and automated metric reporting

Learn how automating metric gathering helps save time and confusion the importance of mapping agile metrics to traditional metrics.


Introducing the Rational Solution for Electronic Design

The new Rational Solution for Electronics Design focuses on support for the system level design of electronic devices using Rhapsody; electronic design management, including configuration management of hardware and software design assets using ClearCase; and workflow using Rational Team Concert. The solution can help you streamline and automate workflow, thus allowing you to be more productive and reduce your overall development costs.


Accelerating hardware and software co-development in IBM Systems and Technology

An agile transformation IBM Systems and Technology Group is facilitated by an IBM Rational solution for hardware and software co-development across world-wide development sites and thousands of engineers. Collaboration is key to success. In addition, executive reports that took two weeks to compile in the past are now instantaneous with the Rational solutions.

Fueling the next generation of innovation in electronics

Electronics firms are under constant pressure to deliver innovation on time and within budget, while contending with rapidly changing technologies, increasing product complexity and strict compliance and safety standards.

CasMacronix International Co., Ltd.

A leading semiconductor producer in Taiwan raises the stakes in the quality game, significantly reducing product defects and spoilage, when it implements a solution that can proactively detect and correct common production problems.

Continuous integration for agile embedded software development

Software teams have benefited from Agile development methods, adopting practices based on iterative and incremental development, where requirements and solutions evolve through collaboration between self-organizing, cross-functional teams.


Differences between hardware and software co-design process in heavily and lightly regulated industries

Heavily regulated industries like medical devices face issues like requirements management and traceability across the lifecycle to meet regulatory needs. Key issues for lightly regulated industries are being able to reuse components from product to product as development time frames get shorter.


Fueling the next generation of innovation in electronics

Electronics firms are under constant pressure to deliver this innovation on time and within budget, while contending with rapidly changing technologies, increasing product complexity and strict compliance and safety standards. This podcast will discuss the comprehensive set of capabilities IBM Rational provides for the electronics industry.


Electronics hardware / software co-design

Co-design has become key for anyone designing electronic products. This demonstration shows that importance by looking at how to integrate a board into a complete system.
