Requirements management and product testing are now seamlessly linked under new Jama Software and Vector integration
Jama Software the leading requirements management solution for building complex products and integrated systems, today announced the integration of Jama Connect™ with Vector’s product testing platforms CANoe and vTESTstudio. This partnership will enable network designers and engineers within the automotive industry, as well as other high-liability industries requiring electronic component testing, to simplify the product development process and ease the pathway to regulatory compliance.
“Electronic control units testing based on requirements is key to improving product quality,” said Simone Gronau, Product Theme Manager of Vector. “We are pleased to offer joint users of Jama Connect and CANoe or vTESTstudio this intuitive and highly automated integration.”
Not only does this integration simplify the complex nature of the product development process, it also reduces the time and effort spent generating information required to meet industry regulations. Furthermore, this Jama and Vector integration ensures:
- Decreased time-to-market for products without jeopardizing safety or company reputation
- Better integration across the define, build and test phases of product development, providing developers with full traceability by housing requirements in the same place as the test cases.
- Increased quality and reduction in costly software by enabling more cross team collaboration
- Enabling developers to more quickly detect and correct problems earlier on in the development process by evaluating functional requirements, analysis models and prototypes before they cause significant impacts to the project.
“Marrying these two processes isn’t just smart, it’s a necessity. In an increasingly safety-focused world, requirements are risks and companies can’t take a chance when it comes to following the rules,” said Jeremy Johnson, VP of Product Management at Jama Software. “In highly-regulated industries, such as automotive, semiconductor, aerospace, and medical, electronic component testing doesn’t just confirm machines run well, it actively ensures safety. We’re excited to partner with Vector to bring traceability of requirements, risk and test management to a whole new level.”
