Management Summary – ISO 26262 support by codeBeamer
Intland’s Application Lifecycle Management platform codeBeamer is suited to create safety-related systems developed in processes according to ISO/DIS 26262 and IEC 61508 and therefore helps being compliant with important standards in the automotive world. The various disciplines supported by codeBeamer enable automotive engineering organizations in developing safety-related embedded systems up to ASIL-D or SIL3.
codeBeamer also supports companies in improving their productivity. Automating otherwise manual and error-prone activities can be enhanced through workflows, real-time reporting and metrics. Therefore, systemic errors can be significantly reduced if not avoided and greater release readiness visibility will be achieved.
codeBeamer acts as a central repository and avoids media breaks. It also represents a single source of truth for the development of software-intensive products. Audit preparation and product documentation is automatically provided when codeBeamer is applied throughout the development process. The risk of non-compliance will be largely decreased.
Due to its single repository architecture, codeBeamer delivers traceability of the full lifecycle between hazard and risk management to requirements management to test management all the way down into source configuration management more easily. Collaboration between distributed organizations is achieved and representatives can concentrate on accelerating product development and innovation while handling a high turnover of requirements and other artifacts and cope with constant change. Integrations with other engineering authoring tools can be achieved through respective applications programming interfaces, e.g. for company-specific test automation, to enhance overall productivity.
Furthermore, Intland’s codeBeamer Web site www.codebeamer.com provides customers with the ability to view current and release-specific problem reports. Customers can find relevant information about defects and similar workitems as well as possible workarounds which are already detected in the specific releases which might have impact on their own development. Of course, customers can report problems. Reported information there can also be shared in public with other users.
