Latest update to flagship product delivers real-time relationship visibility to aid decision-making

The Connected Car of the Future Demands Connected Thinking for Greater Compliance

Detroit, MI — April 12, 2016 —Jama Software –a product-development solution for automotive component suppliers developing complex systems— today announced at the 2016 Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) World Congress, a partnership with an internationally recognized ISO 26262 testing body to obtain ISO 26262 “Fit-for-Purpose” certification.
Accreditation for the Jama solution will give automotive OEM and suppliers assurance that the workflows they follow to define, build and test automotive related products in the Jama solution meet critical functional safety requirements.
The company will also host a display booth (Booth 525) to demonstrate how its core functionality, including traceability, requirements verification and validation, and change management, can be easily configured to meet functional safety standards and processes including ISO 26262 and SPICE. As part of its tooling for safety-critical development, the Jama solution will continue to deliver a comprehensive tool for auditable traceability across developments phases.
“There’s pressure across the automotive original equipment manufacturer (OEMs) and supplier ecosystem to address this challenge of increased complexity along with functional safety. They don’t want lose their competitive advantage so they are seeking modern solutions that are both innovative and certified” said Derywn Harris, Jama Director of Product Marketing and co-founder.
The ISO 26262 standard has requirements that are challenging to interpret and implement. As a requirements management tool vendor, Jama pursued functional safety certification to instill confidence in its users that the software won’t introduce problems when developing to this standard.
“Certification implies a certain rigor in our own process along with additional documentation that we are satisfied will help automotive customers reduce risk of liability,” said Harris. “Too often, traceability is an afterthought, to be completed in hindsight after project completion. With Jama, companies can avoid that via built-in attention to process, decision making and change analysis in real time.”
