Accelerating Systems LIfecycle Engineering and Development 1.0

Tab navigation

The solution helps organizations accelerate the adoption of lifecycle tools and realize benefits of collaboration. The 321 Gang Solution helps organizations:

  • Organize and manage requirements and establish traceability using DOORS and RRC to facilitate verification of system correctness and completeness and supports regulatory and contractual compliance.

  • Teach Software Engineers modeling best practices using UML, SysML, and DoDAF with Rhapsody and share techniques for modeling complex behavior and generating code for host and target platforms.

  • Adopt planning and scheduling processes that combine our experience applying Lean/Agile and Traditional methods to large, complex systems across domains and disciplines.  We help organizations leverage RTC’s work and planning capabilities to blend traditional and agile planning.

  • Implement a comprehensive Change/Configuration Management strategy across teams, domains, and disciplines using RTC, ClearCase/ClearQuest, and Synergy/Change.

  • Provide quality management best practices with Quality Manager (RQM) by implementing traceability between test artifacts and corresponding requirements and engineering assets, supporting continuous testing practices, and automating test procedure as well as metrics collection for compliance.

  • Automate project and program visibility using dashboards and custom reports for regulatory compliance and contractual needs. We share our experience using RRDI and RPE to collect information from all lifecycle tools and format documents and reports.

  • + Functional details

    Our System Lifecycle solution provides assessments and workshops that are followed with comprehensive training and consulting.  They enable customers to:

    • Specify and manage complex requirements and establish traceability and automate verification.

    • Model complex systems logic and generating code from models.

    • Provide hybrid of traditional and Agile/Lean scheduling and planning methods.

    • Implement Change/Configuration Management strategy.

    • Develop Quality Management and Test strategies.

    • Facilitate Collaboration, Documentation, and Reporting.

  • + Business problem

    Organizations face challenge from increasing complexity, frequent change, reduced cycle times, expanding product variation, and more compliance demands. Our solution takes best practices from traditional disciplines - managing requirements, change, configurations, quality - and applies current principles and practices including adaptive planning, multi-level planning, continuous integration, automated testing, and behavioral modeling and execution.

  • + Business opportunity

    There are many facets to the 321 Gang Lifecycle solution and therefore several business opportunities. Transitioning to an integrated, collaborative development environment allows organizations to better manage change and complexity while ensuring completeness, correctness, and compliance. 321 Gang’s Solution accelerates the transition and reduces the risks to realizing benefits.

    • Organize and manage requirements and establish traceability. System, feature, component, regulatory, and non-functional requirements traceability allows automated verification of correctness and completeness.
    • Assist embedded systems developers modeling systems on techniques for modeling complex behavior and target-based code execution.
    • Develop a planning and scheduling process using our experience with Rational Team® Concert and what works well for agile/lean as well as traditional processes and methods. 
    • mplement a comprehensive Change/Configuration Management strategy using our knowledge of the IBM Rational® tools for Change and Configuration Management as well as variation for Product Line Engineering.
    • Design and implement traceability between requirements, development assets, and test artifacts to verify completeness and correctness. We help develop testing strategies incorporating unit, feature, and system level testing of software and model-based execution.
    • Setup ’ live data’ views of development using dashboards. We share our experience using RRDI reporting within Rational Team® Concert and Rational™ Publishing Engine to collect information from all lifecycle tools and format documents and reports.

  • + Competitive advantage

    321 Gang’s solution enables organizations to address increasing complexity, shortened cycle times, continuous change, and collaboration demands while minimizing adoption time and risks.  Our lifecycle solutions increase productivity and reduce costs by automating systems lifecycle activities for planning and scheduling, large-scale collaboration, and reporting for compliance and contractual obligations.

    321 Gang consultant’s decades of experience have led to best practices in managing complex requirements, modeling complex systems, managing change and configurations across product lines, and organizing quality and testing practices.
