Systems development is more complex than ever because of today’s integrated architectures, Internet of Things (IoT) demands and consumer expectations. The traditional V-model no longer reflects the iterative, interconnected product lifecycle in today’s fast-moving world.
Modern products are continuously transforming. Workflow and decision-making are iterative and dynamic.
With complex product variants and compliance requirements, teams need Jama's real-time traceability to identify the gaps and dependencies between people and data, throughout the development lifecycle.
Jama creates a digital thread of context and accountability. Proposed systems characteristics and actual operational results drive business value into the product.
Requirements connect, guide and inform people, tasks and trade-offs. Live traceability aligns asynchronous development teams for agile systems engineering.
Design in isolation is doomed. With Jama, upstream technical requirements directly reference higher-level user needs and system capabilities.
Real-time collaboration between managers, users/operators and technical personnel drives early requirements synthesis and design agreement. Where diagrams or models are necessary for clarity, Jama helps through native apps and integrations.
During implementation, hardware and software teams often build at different paces. Teams lose context in transitions. Decisions and conversations are lost in isolated documents or systems.
With Jama, real-time changes and decisions are always visible, so engineers can ask questions and notify stakeholders throughout implementation.
Verification and validation should not be a final, wholesale activity. Teams benefit from incremental checks to inform necessary changes and pivot toward better products.
Jama supports manual test tracking, as well as integrations with automation and simulation test tools. Traceability start to finish improves quality and increases team and stakeholder confidence.
Just a few years ago, operations and maintenance meant simple monitoring and occasional updates. But today, the increase of software and connectivity means frequent software releases – increasing pressure and visibility on this step of the V-model.
Jama provides real-time information about how reused requirements change over time and across product variants, streamlining ongoing field maintenance and upgrades.
