Unify your software and hardware development processes to maintain alignment across teams and increase speed to market.
Collaborative engineering combines both software and hardware elements to enable smart, connected product development.
Gone are the days that a piece of hardware contained a few lines of firmware code reused over several generations of products. Today these products combine advanced hardware with an operating system, complex software, a radio and cloud connectivity. This requires the product development team to span across diverse teams of software and hardware developers. These teams work at different paces but need to be on the same page with regards to requirements… that’s Jama’s strength.
Gives real-time visibility so issues can be assessed and addressed early and quickly before costly modifications are required. Learn more about Traceability.
Product requirements come down to a negotiation between marketing and engineering.
A reconciliation of the MRD to a PRD sets the direction for the product. However, as teams are still using Word and Excel for these documents, that negotiation happens at a point in time and never gets updated. The result is that as development continues many little trade-offs don’t get compared against the original MRD/PRD documents and the team loses. Jama records the real time stream of product trade-off decisions, keeping all contributors on the same page.

Conduct Reviews in Jama
Simplify the review and approval process by capturing key stakeholders feedback from within Jama. Initiate reviews on a document, a group of items, or even single items. Learn more about Reviews and Approvals.
“There are numerous problems Jama helps us with that weren’t obvious before; we learn more as we work in it. Much of the benefit is in its efficient collaboration functionality; it’s one of the most helpful tools we have.”
