Safety-Critical & Embedded

Parasoft's Embedded Software Quality solution for safety-critical development seamlessly integrates project and task management into any development environment and toolset. This enables comprehensive process visibility and control throughout the entire SDLC to effectively satisfy quality and compliance requirements.

Achieve Compliance with DO-178B/C, JSF, MISRA, ISO 26262 . . .

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.

Convert Policies into Actionable, Measurable Tasks

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.

Comprehensive Requirements Traceability

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.

Seamless Integration

Parasoft seamlessly integrates with any development environment and any development language to provide meaningful, actionable data from disparate system components, including:
  • Requirements management systems
  • Bug tracking systems
  • IDEs
  • Source code repositories
  • Build management and integration systems
  • Test management systems
Parasoft plugs directly into common embedded environments, including Eclipse, Wind River Workbench, ARM RVDS, QNX Momentics, Texas Instruments CCS, and Microsoft Visual Studio. Enhanced support is also available for Green Hills MULTI, ARM ADS, IAR Embedded Workbench, Keil RealView, Microsoft eMbedded Visual C++ and Visual Studio 6, .NET Compact Framework, and Wind River Tornado.
