LDRA has integrated its tool suite with IBM Rational Doors Next Generation requirements management tool. The LDRA utility suite automates code analysis and software testing for safety-, mission-, security- and business-critical markets to reduce the cost of qualification/certification. On the other end, the Doors Next Generation solution equips teams with requirements definition and management capabilities, a work item system for task management and planning, and a reporting system.

This integration brings software analysis and verification suite into this open collaboration platform supporting critical IoT application development. The integrated LDRA tool suite and IBM Rational Doors Next Generation solution reduces the design time and systems-development costs of IoTs including automotive, medical device, industrial control, energy and aerospace, and defence applications.

 
LDRA-IBM Rational Doors Next Gen fig 1 (cr) Figure 1: IBM Rational Doors Next Generation manages requirements for entire projects. A number of these items define software requirements which the LDRA tool suite can verify right down to the source code.  

Tracing the requirements to source for code and test vectors, procedures and results, this solution enables embedded software and IoT systems developers to achieve full lifecycle traceability in an Open Services for Lifecycle Collaboration (OSLC) environment. For other environments requiring software qualification or certification, this integration provides the transparency and audit trail required for quality and regulatory review.
