codeBeamer ALM offers a comprehensive software engineering risk management feature set that is fully integrated with its Application Lifecycle Management capabilities. It helps identify and manage risks with gapless traceability ensured, whether you are using a (scaled) Agile, Waterfall, or Hybrid framework. Manage, monitor, and report on risks in the development of enterprise applications, embedded software, or IoT-connected devices.
Identify risks early on, and adequately prepare and execute their reduction or mitigation in safety-critical development. Ensure safety and reliability in development of automotive, medical, aviation, and pharmaceutical products.
Implement mature risk and quality management, and comply with standards and regulations including ISO 26262, ISO 14971, IEC62304, IEC 61508, DO-178C, etc. Simplify and accelerate tool validation and compliance audits with codeBeamer ALM.
codeBeamer’s integrated risk management functionality allows you to conduct all the steps of a comprehensive risk management lifecycle:
- Risk Identification
- Classification and Assessment
- Hazard Analysis
- Risk Reduction Plan
- Risk Mitigation Actions
- Documentation and Reporting
The risk management tool features of codeBeamer ALM are fully integrated with requirements, development, testing, and maintenance, ensuring complete risk traceability throughout the entire product lifecycle.
Risks are documented, and their coverage with reduction or mitigation activities may be analyzed in real-time. codeBeamer’s Risk Matrix Diagrams allow you to visualize risks, and to analyze the performance of your mitigation efforts. Custom reporting features help you provide proof of your risk management activities to facilitate compliance audits. Preconfigured but flexibly customizable Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) trackers support your efforts to collect all possible failure modes, as well as to plan and execute their mitigation. An easily exportable, comprehensive FMEA worksheet may be used to report on the entire Failure Mode and Effects Analysis process.
Risk Management and FMEA in Software & Hardware Projects
Risk & Failure Mode Trackers and Libraries
Create a risk registry to identify and analyze all hazards using preconfigured, yet flexibly adaptable risk and failure mode work items, or create your own artifacts. Save your risks to libraries, and re-use them in future projects. Set likelihood (occurrence), severity, and detection values for each of your risks. When conducting FMEA, a Risk Priority Number will be automatically calculated based on these values to support risk prioritization. Visualize your overall risk level as well as how your mitigation actions are performing using our configurable Risk Matrix Diagrams.
Risk Management Workflows & Process Enforcement
Define and enforce tailor-made workflows for your risk management lifecycle, and restrict access via user permissions. Take advantage of codeBeamer’s automatic change control which documents all actions and changes on all your risk-related work items. Create custom, logic-based automated processes for high-risk items.
Integrated Risk Management & Traceability
Derive risks from requirements (to collect and analyze all risks of a certain feature), or the other way around (to implement new features that help reduce or mitigate risks). Links may be automatically established between work items throughout the lifecycle, ensuring end-to-end risk traceability. Report on risk coverage and trace items forward and backwards to facilitate compliance. Take advantage of codeBeamer’s Traceability Browser to map and visualize the relationship between your work items across the entire lifecycle.
Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA)
Support your risk management with Failure Mode and Effects Analysis. codeBeamer’s preconfigured but flexibly adaptable FMEA artifacts let you collect and analyze failure modes, and allow you to plan, manage, and document the execution of all your mitigation actions. Export a comprehensive FMEA worksheet to report on your Failure Mode and Effects Analysis process.
Advanced Collaboration Features
Assign risks to team members, and authorize certain members of your team to access a shared risk registry. Comment, vote on, or rate risks collaboratively. Use comments, wikis, and automatically triggered notifications to make sure collaboration is smooth and efficient across teams.
Risk Documentation and Reporting
Export risk traceability reports to trace actions from requirements to mitigation. Prove the efficiency of your risk mitigation activities in compliance audits. Use custom Word or Excel templates to export reports on your requirements and risks, as well as the execution of your mitigation activities.
