INCHRON Tool-Suite integration to DOORS using OSLC 1.0

Tab navigation

The INCHRON Tool-Suite is a model-based design and analysis tool for the development of real-time critical embedded systems.It integrates simulation and validation methods working on the same system model. Main focus is the scheduling behavior of real-time operating systems. The Tool-Suite enables the timing and performance analysis of data flows in distributed systems. The automated assessment of detailed real-time requirements allows the evaluation of non-functional properties throughout the development cycle.

Integration to DOORS using the OSLC-RM v1.0 API
The integration enhances the INCHRON Tool-Suite to access the DOORS database to import requirements, refine them with technical details, add test results, and store them back to the DOORS database. This improves the traceability of non-functional requirements of embedded systems by adding model based timing and performance analysis capabilities.

  • + Functional details

    For a detailed description of the INCHRON Tool-Suite please visit or contact your IBM sales representative.

    The integration with IBM Rational DOORS allows the following actions:

    • Import of requirements from the DOORS database
      (Login into DOORS Web-Access; select requirements; automatically generate requirement groups in INCHRON Tool-Suite)
    • Refinement of requirements with technical details for timing and performance analysis
    • Evaluation of requirements of the dynamic behavior of the (distributed) embedded systems with simulation and validation methods
    • Export of refined requirements and test results to DOORS database as requirement attributes

  • + Competitive advantage

    The integration of the INCHRON Tool-Suite to IBM Rational DOORS enables users to extend and detail their requirements to cover non-functional requirements for timing and performance of embedded systems.

    The INCHRON Tool-Suite is the unique solution providing a model based simulation and validation of real-time critical behavior of embedded systems based on the same model.

    By moving the timing and performance analysis to the early development phases these aspects can be considered already in the system architecture phase - instead of fixing complex problems found in late integration and test phases.

    Based on the Jazz technology the important dynamic behavior of networked embedded systems can now be adequately addressed throughout the complete process.
