LDRA opens office in Germany

first_imgLDRA has opened an office in Munich to meet customer demand for a more tightly integrated approach to software quality. The office will support new and existing customers in Austria, Germany, and Switzerland who are building safety- and security-critical applications for aerospace and defence, automotive, industrial controls, medical, and rail transportation.Companies in these industries are facing increased pressure and scrutiny to develop high-assurance software that guarantees safe and secure operation in all environments and under all conditions. Many companies find that loosely integrated point solutions no longer sufficiently address the functional safety and security standards adopted by OEMs and required of their software development organizations. Standards such as AUTOSAR, SAE J3061, ISO 26262, and MISRA for automotive; D0-178C for aerospace; IEC 61508 for industrial; IEC 62304 for medical devices; and EN 50128 for rail transportation demand rigorous compliance and affect all aspects of software development and verification. Complying with these process and development standards using traditional manual methods is time-consuming, costly, and error-prone.A tightly integrated approach such as that provided by the LDRA tool suite enables customers to more easily and cost-effectively address all compliance requirements of high-assurance software. The LDRA tool suite automates a completely bidirectional, traceable solution that connects the entire workflow from objectives of the process standards, to functional, safety, and security requirements, to static and dynamic software testing. The tool suite as a whole simplifies and reduces the cost of compliance, automates testing and artifact generation, and improves software quality. With the LDRA tool suite customers can incorporate industry- and company-specific coding standards. They also can leverage integrations with modeling tools such as IBM Rhapsody, ANSYS SCADE, Mathworks Simulink, and Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) and requirements tools such as DOORS, DOORS NextGen, and Polarion.In addition, LDRA provides scalable solutions that enable customers to start with a single capability such as static analysis, coding standards compliance, unit testing, or coverage analysis, and then build into the full tool suite to address certification requirements at the highest levels of assurance.Share this:TwitterFacebookLinkedInMoreRedditTumblrPinterestWhatsAppSkypePocketTelegram Tags: Tools & Software Continue Reading Previous Silicon Labs: Wireless Xpress modules deliver Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity with zero programmingNext Garz & Fricke becomes official Qt Distributorlast_img read more
