LDRA tool suite integration featuring bidirectional traceability automates impact analysis and enables Polarion users to reduce the cost of compliance with safety-critical standards
“LDRA’s tool suite integration greatly complements our Polarion ALM offering by providing end-to-end traceability to test execution in support of regulated requirements based testing and comprehensive analysis of test coverage,” said Pascal Vera, product management director at Siemens PLM Software. “Along with providing transparency into their overall software development process and improving customers’ operational efficiency, this bidirectional traceability helps simplify, automate, and reduce the cost of compliance with safety- and security-critical standards.”
Polarion ALM software focuses on cross-platform enterprise applications to enable effective product and application lifecycle management in a wide array of embedded markets ranging from automotive to medical to Internet of Things (IoT). Example industry standards supported through this integration with LDRA’s tool suite includeDO-178B/C for avionics, ISO 26262 for automotive, IEC 62304 for medical, and EN 50128 for rail transportation.
The benefits of LDRA’s integration with Polarion ALM include:
- Automation of the delivery of software quality analysis and verification results to Polarion for viewing in a web browser from any of the team members
- Transparency of overall software development process regardless of software methodologies like Agile, Spiral, etc.
- Ability to expand test verification from Polarion ALM into any embedded software development ecosystem or hardware platform spanning from 8-bit and 16-bitMCUs to 32-bit and all the way up to 64-bit architectures
“LDRA continues to work with industry leaders in Application Lifecycle Management to provide the best solution to our customers for lifecycle traceability, standards compliance, and software quality analysis and testing automation,” said Ian Hennell, operations director, LDRA. “The software integration with Siemens’ Polarion leverages LDRA’s automated static review and dynamic coverage analysis as well as automated test case generation, execution, and results capture.LDRA’s integration is unique in that it spans from traceability requirements through verification activities.”
