Parasoft Development Testing Platform can be applied to drive any policy or combination of policies that your organization is required to follow. It is preconfigured with templates for common safety-critical regulations, including:
Parasoft works with each organization to optimize the templates for the organization’s unique demands. This jump starts compliance and establishes the foundation for continuous improvement.
Parasoft’s policy-driven approach guides the organization to convert expectations for development and testing into actionable, measurable work tasks. An automated infrastructure runs in the background, orchestrating mandated processes (manual and automated), and continuously monitoring policy compliance. Notifications are generated only when actions don’t align with policy expectations. In this way, SDLC tasks are driven to a predictable outcome according to defined industry standards or management’s expectations.
Tasks are defined, distributed, managed, and monitored through Parasoft’s comprehensive project management framework. The result: Centralized, objective insight into all aspects of the project—from deadline, to budget, to functionality completion and defect risk.
For traceability, requirements are correlated with automated and manual tests, source code, and development/testing tasks. The current level of verification for each requirement or task (including task pass/fail status and coverage) can be assessed at any time by back tracing to all associated tests. This correlation also enables change-based testing, which identifies exactly which tests are impacted by source code and requirement modifications. Teams know exactly which tests need to be rerun and which code needs to be re-reviewed.
In addition to tracking when the functionality for each requirement is implemented and tested, Parasoft also monitors compliance to non-functional requirements (e.g., coding standards, peer review, coverage, etc.) The system can be configured so that functionality is not considered “complete” unless it complies with the team’s quality expectations.
