Your teams are pressured to accelerate product delivery and manage growing complexity in distributed organization and supply chains, within products, and across a network of interrelated and interdependent products.
Despite continued advances in embedded computing components, commercial software, and automated software development tools, engineering organizations have not been able to add resources or gain additional efficiencies fast enough to keep pace with the rising complexity in their projects. Results from VDC’s 2014 Software and System Development Survey show that 42% of embedded systems are behind schedule. The survey results demonstrate that issues around inadequate specifications, technical challenges and complexity are major impediments to on-time project completion.
“No other solution exists in the market today that can connect—in realtime—the individual contributions of thousands of architects, engineers, customers, managers, etc. across all disciplines and boundaries collaborating on complex systems development and sustainment while providing traceability, visibility and collaboration to the entire effort in a single system, thereby creating efficiency and effectiveness where chaos once ruled.”
The INCOSE systems engineering mission reads: “The Systems Engineering Mission Assures the fully integrated development and realization of products which meet stakeholders’ expectations within cost, schedule, and risk constraints. When properly implemented, systems engineering will:
- Provide a structured process for integrating and linking requirements, schedule, decision milestones, and verification—it works best when the project team is committed to the systems engineering process
- Enable the project team to work to a single, integrated set of requirements and processes
- Enable integration of the system at the requirements and design stages (before sunk costs) rather than waiting until hardware and software is available
- Reduce unplanned and costly reengineering necessary to resolve omissions and integration difficulties.”
We couldn’t have said this better ourselves. The Jama collaborative systems engineering solution fulfills the promise of the INCOSE mission for properly implemented systems. No other solution exists in the market today that can connect—in real-time—the individual contributions of thousands of architects, engineers, customers, managers, etc. across all disciplines and boundaries collaborating on complex systems development and sustainment while providing traceability, visibility and collaboration to the entire effort in a single system, thereby creating efficiency and effectiveness where chaos once ruled.
Jama Manages Complexity
Complexity is the biggest challenge to successful product delivery. Distributed teams, complicated product lines, siloed groups, and market dynamics all contribute
to a system’s complexity which is now demanding new ways of defining, building, and testing products. Jama makes it easy for all users to visualize and manage complex data models.
Jama Creates Alignment
Modern purposeful collaboration mechanisms built into Jama allows systems engineers to work smarter, keeping conversations in the contextof the work itself. Everyone is aligned around the greater product goal.
Jama Increases Speed
Companies can get to market faster when both people and data are aligned and in sync on product development and deliverables. Jama’s ease of use and virtualized review and approval technology shortens the time from ideas to value.
