Is there a single ALM solution that covers everything for the automotive industry?
Working with companies that produce components for the automotive industry we learnt that they often face the challenge to be compliant with certain standards and deal with the exchange of requirements to achieve the required SPICE level. Working with OEM’s is not always easy for them while they usually send requirements in PDF format that can be hard to handle.
We often read news about the recall of cars due to failures of certain components, these failures are often a consequence of software failure. New high technology features in cars come with increased complexity, and with complexity comes greater risk with an increasing reliance on embedded software.
Currently there are approximately 100,000,000 lines of code in a modern car and this number is continually increasing. In many cases, failures can be traced back to errors made during software development. codeBeamer ALM is all about the prevention of such failures.
Free codeBeamer with Requirements, Development and QA & Test Management for the automotive industry
We have seen that the automotive industry has a great need for a single, integrated ALM solution to manage requirements and help them achieve the traceability required for SPICE and reporting. Another key requirement for the automotive industry is that the same ALM solution should be used also for Test Management and Test Automation.
ALM solutions are usually very expensive and in addition to this, most ALM solutions are „single-point” systems (they consist of many different plugins). Since all plugins need to be integrated to achieve complete ALM functionality, working with them it is not only extremely time-consuming, but it often results in hidden costs as well.
We have made codeBeamer ALM completely free for the first project for a whole year for companies to experience the benefits of an integrated ALM solution that provides the complete traceability and comprehensive Test Management required for SPICE, as well as to handle requirements of OEM’s simply.
In contrast to “single-point” systems (systems that consists of many different plugins), codeBeamer is a complete, enterprise-enabled ALM solution with integrated requirements, risk, development and QA & testing modules.
Since it is fully integrated, teams do not have to spend time integrating diverse plugins, and consequently, there are no hidden costs associated with its use.
