The firms are trying to create a perfect storm of ALM with full control and traceability over requirements, models, source code, and tests.

In the face of software-intensive business systems where organizations now use model-centric processes to manage complexity, the firms have produced what they call "high-fidelity integration" of PTC Integrity and Artisan Studio to provide a centralized change process-driven approach needed for complex product development.

Atego chairman Richard Horsman says that by connecting models with other lifecycle artifacts and processes, requirements can guide design models and engineering change can be orchestrated with precision and speed.

"Engineers today must accelerate the pace of innovation and quickly incorporate changes to reduce overall development time and costs. Compliance with standards like ISO26262, DO-178B, and IEC61508 demands process control and automation capabilities with end-to-end coverage of engineering change. Achieving these goals requires the ability to work in an integrated environment where every asset in the lifecycle is connected and controlled," notes Jake Simpson, General Manager of PTC’s ALM business segment.

"Model-based approaches to complex systems engineering and software development projects are rapidly becoming the norm for leading product development organizations. The adoption of the Object Management Group's (OMG) two leading modeling notations for systems and software (SysML and UML) has now outpaced traditional techniques. Model-based Systems Engineering (MBSE) has become the driving force for today's product lifecycles, and Application Modeling is key to the majority of software-intensive system development projects," said Hedley Apperly, VP product & marketing with Atego.
