Providence, RI (PRWEB) January 30, 2013
Vector Software, the leading provider of dynamic software testing solutions for embedded systems, today announced the integration of its VectorCAST integrated suite of embedded software test tools with the Reqtify requirements management and traceability tool from Dassault Systèmes.
Reqtify is an easy to use interactive tool for managing requirements, traceability, and impact analysis across the entire hardware and software development lifecycle. The Reqtify tool can capture a wide variety of data and file formats from multiple sources.
Using the VectorCAST Requirements Gateway (VectorCAST/RGW), engineers can import software requirements and associate them with VectorCAST test cases, including pass/fail results and code coverage metrics. This mapping can then be pushed back to the requirements management tool for complete traceability. Through a simple and intuitive interface, developers can quickly and easily link requirements to VectorCAST test cases
The VectorCAST / Reqtify integration permits data to flow between the Reqtify requirements management tool and the VectorCAST testing tools. The integration enables organizations to effectively manage their requirement engineering process and to ensure compliance with standards such as IEC 61508, ISO 26262, DO-178B/C, IEC 62304, and more.
“As development cycles accelerate, it is more important than ever for project teams to collaborate throughout the development process. Organizations expect requirements traceability, data analysis, and report generation to be seamlessly integrated within their development environment” said Bill McCaffrey, Chief Operating Officer at Vector Software. “The integration of Reqtify and VectorCAST provides organizations an innovative and industry-proven solution to the problem”.
